My mom and I are doing weight watchers together from home. We have found some great things we LOVE! (we do the older points version not the points plus so these values are based on calories/fat/fiber so adjust accordingly)
Thomas™ makes great bagel thins. In yummy bagel flavors like plain, cinnamon, and my favorite Everything. They are only 1 POINT! Awesome
Weight Watchers™ makes an incredible icecream bar similar to Snickers™ but only 3 POINTS and its to die for!
Bush's™ baked beans with bacon and extra brown sugar = only 2 POINTS fora 1/2 cup
Kraft™ shredded fat free cheddar cheese is only 1 POINT for 1/4 cup. It seems rubbery or clumpy in the bag but the clumps break up easily and it has good texture. Melts great!
Laughing Cow™ spreadable cheese wedges. Only 1 POINT and come in lots of flavors. I love the garlic one. They are great with bagels, crackers, or celery sticks.
Special K™ Crackers and Cracker Chips 2 POINTS for 27 crackers or chips. Both are baked not fried. The "chips" are made with potatoes and brown rice for a light texture. They're yummy.
Rold Gold™ cheddar cheese pretzels are my fave snack! 20 mini twist pretzels = 2 POINTS!!!
High fiber cereals keep my points low but make feel fuller. My faves are General Mills caramel Fiber One™ 1 cup= 3 POINTS, General Mills caramel Cheerios™ 1 cup = 2 POINTS, General Mills Basic 4™ 1 cup = 3 POINTS, Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats maple and brown sugar 25 biscuits = 3 POINTS. (I like to eat them with banana slices and 1% milk)
Oikos™ 0% fat greek yogurt. Very high in protein! The individual cup is a generous serving for 3 POINTS.
Trop50™ orange juice is only 1 POINT for an 8 oz glass.
Sargento's™ Ultimate thin sliced deli style cheese. I luv the colby jack! Each slice only has 40 calories. 1 POINT per slice. I know it also comes in swiss.
I like Lean Cuisine™ and Smart Ones™ entrees for lunches or quick dinners. I round out my meals with a big salad. They vary in points from 3 to 8
Skinny Cow™ makes lots of 2 and 3 POINT icecream bars that don't even taste lite!
Butterball™ turkey bacon tastes just like pork bacon and it's only 1 POINT for 2 slices!! It's really good, especially if u make it crispy.
Also, Jimmy Dean™ turkey sausage is delicious! 3 POINTS per serving (2 patties)
I HOPE THIS HELPS! I LOVE HEARING WHAT PEOPLE LIKE. IT STINKS TO BUY A PRODUCT THAT SAYS IT'S DELICIOUS ONLY TO FIND IT TASTES LIKE CARDBOARD AND COSTS MORE THAN THE BRAND YOU USUALLY BUY. I LIKE SHARING MY FAVORITE FINDS AND PASSING IT ON. IT MAKES STICKING TO A DIET MUCH EASIER WHEN I HAVE HEALTHY OPTIONS I ACTUALLY WANNA EAT! GOOD LUCK!
Here's a typical menu for me for the day:
1 large egg - 2 pts OR Cream of Wheat - 3 pts
3 strips of microwave bacon - 2 pts
1 fruit (usually banana or orange) - 0 pts
"Flat Out" Light Original Bread - 2 pts
Turkey Breast (2 oz.) - 2 pts
Fruit (varies) - 0 pts
Sugar Free Jell-O - 0 pts
Dinner always varies for me, but I use the bulk of my points on dinner because that's when I'm at my hungriest. I try to incorporate veggies here, but it's hard for me because I'm not a huge veggie lover.
Skinny Tzatziki - 0 pts
Sugar Free Fudge Bars (store brand) - 1 pt
Natural, No Sugar Added Applesauce - 0 pts
Sugar Free Jell-O - 0 pts

a small steak sauteed with sliced mushrooms (5pts)
a baked potato (3pts) with 1/4 c fat free cheese (1pt) and sour cream (3pts)
corn on the cob (1pt)
salad (2pts for the dressing)
I splurged on this 15 pt dinner because I had a lite breakfast and lunch and I still have about 10 pts left over! :hungry:
What do you have when you splurge or have lots of points to use?

I use the old point system too so I will just list the foods and you can do the counting
Breakfast is usually a baggie of chopped celery (I know odd but talk about getting full, get my fiber, and the days veggies) or some 1/2 cup egg beaters and salsa
Lunch is usually a homemade broth based soup that includes some protien (today it was a southwest version- leftover roasted chicken, one cob of corn, 1/2 onion, can of black beans, can of diced tomatos and homemade chicken broth) this all comes to 2pt per serving
Dinner: a protein usually chicken or seafood, then a starchy veggie, and I usually have a glass or two of wine
