Well I am very excited right now because tonight after dinner I found my new favorite treat and it's only 100 calories! So I was looking around the market on campus with my roomie, and saw in the ice cream section these Haagen-Dazs fat free sorbet & yogurt bars. SOOOO good and did I mention only 100 calories? Basically it is fat free vanilla yogurt dipped in raspberry sorbet.
After this discovery I got to wondering what other fabulous finds are out there...so here is everyone's chance to share them!! :D

I totally dig skinny cow ice cream... my favorite treat is the chocolate fudge ice cream in the cone. 150 calories, and great for when you just dump your boyfriend :)
i am still trying

Yes, i love skinny cow. i like their ice cream cookie sandwiches.
Also, garstar, I think you made a good decision. At lease from all the chatter about your situation.

Thanks, I already feel better :) I just ran for 80 min, and I feel fantastic. I feel less lonely then I did when I was with him! Day one of being single, I had ice cream, did my nails, and went for a run. And this week - I just may go get my hair done.
YAY FOR ICE CREAM!
i am still trying

when i broke up with my long term bf that's exactly what I did: went and had my hair done. It felt really good! To look hot and everything.

I really like bryers fat free vanilla double churned ice cream with a little something added on top if I am within calories of course. I like to make a apple pie type topping that is reduced calorie and without the crust of course. and it is yummy warm over the ice cream. If I don't have enough calories left I just have the ice cream alone. 90 calories per half cup.

I'm a weirdo who prefers soft serve, and the mcdonalds cones are 150 calories (when they make them small). I get dragged to mcds at least once a month, and they are perfect for those times!

Source Lemon Meringue yogurt! Sooooooo yummy and I don't really like yogurt. Super low cal too (35 cal in one serving, like a regular yogurt cup).

Ok, so I am not HUGE into desserts but I did go to the whole foods store here and find these awesome chips. They are organic baked chili and lime chips only 110 calories for 18!!! and only 3g of fat for 18 of them. They are a bit spicy though, but they do make other flavors. I also use a tomatillo dip which only has like 15 calories per serving so its an AWESOME snack.

I like the ww frozen desserts. So tasty!

Air-popped popcorn. When I'm feeling "munchy" (aka not really hungry but just wanna snack on stuff) I'll throw a little into my air popper and then I get that feeling of having something crunchy without feeling bad about it!
It's good with spices, too, especially chili, curry, or garlic powder...and really yummy with cinnamon sugar!

I have a tuna salad that I have made with no mayo.
2 cans of tuna in water, 1/2 cup onions, 1 avocado, 1/2 cup of homemade salsa, 2 tablespoon of sweet relish, s & p, garlic powder. It's really good on a whole wheat tortilla with spinach and alphapha sprouts.

allie -- did you know you can basically make your OWN warm delight with 2 tbsp reduced sugar cake mix and 1 tbsp vanilla yogurt?? It's soooooo much less expensive than buying the warm delights and it's about 100 cals. I like to add a spoonful of peanut butter on top if I have extra cals left for the day, or some chopped up strawberries or raspberries. MMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!

Those bars sound yummy Drose! I'll have to try them.
Right now I'm all about the Healthy Choice Fudge bars. They are HUGE, only 100 calories and have a bunch of protein and...get this...fiber!

I love skinny cow. And sugar free orange jello with a tablespoon of light cool whip...its got that orange cream love about it and only 35 calories if you follow the proper serving sizes. Also, sugar free fudgcicles rock!

OMG, these are the moments when I´d love to live in the US.. today I went to the supermarket, and the "healthiest" ice cream was like 250 cals/portion! And way too much fat!
I also looked for sugar free/low cal candies and they are SOOO expensive, totally out of my budget!

I love cinnamon toast, so I use wheat toast, a few butter sprays, and sprinkle cinnamon and splenda on top. yummmmy
10-02-2008, 04:04 PM

Blue bunny orange dreamsicle bars. 80 cals each, and not very expensive at all! SOOOO good!
