This isn't a recipe, but it's a snack that keeps me going some days. We have a convenience store chain called WaWa here (don't know if it's national or not) and they sell Apple Dippers. It's a plastic carton with sliced apples and a small container of fat-free caramel. I love it! It's 4 points, but it's also 2 servings of fruit and it really satisfies the sweet tooth. To be honest, I eat the apples with very little caramel, and save it for eating with my finger at the end! LOL Or, if you slice a small apple and have it with 1 serving of regular caramel topping, it's like 3 points. Sometimes I just need that SWEET!

They have a similar thing at McDonald's. Here, it is 2 points for 1 serving and $.99. Not bad.

Check out The balasmic Glazed Chicken recipe in the lowfat recipe section of this website http://www.3fatchicks.com/cookbook/viewrecipe/483 it's three points. I make a BIG batch of it, then divide single servings into feezer bags or containers with a cup of 0 point veggies for a quick microwave meal. If you freeze it works best to use the deforst setting until it's well thawed. Then zap it a minute or so on the regular setting, until it's just hot. If I just put it in on the regular setting it gets dried out.

http://www.3fatchicks.com/cookbook/viewrecipe/475 I preapred these up to the point of rolling them before you put them in the baking dish. I wrapped them in waxed paper and stored them in the freezer in a 1 gallon zip lock. Then I microwave them and eat them with taco sauce, I just leave out the extra 1.2 cup of cheese that would have gone on them in the baking step. They are 6 points with taht 1/2 cup of cheese, probably closer to 5 without. At the same time I warm up the enchillada I put a container of veggies in the microwave too. They are great on the go.

Another great on the go food are these burritos:

Jan Starr calculates these to be 3 points each

1 cup Egg Beaters® 99% egg substitute
4 eggs
2 tablespoons water
salt and pepper
6 1/8 ounces healthy choice lowfat breakfast sausgae patties- 1 box
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper
10 98% fatfree tortillias
1/2 cup low fat cheddar cheese, shredded
1 Tablespoon margarine
waxed paper
1.saute onion and pepper IA nonstick pan. add in cut up Sausage (doesn't need to be cooked it's precooked), refrigerate

2.scramble eggs and egg beaters trying to keep curds large, just before finished add in sausage mix

3.warm tortillas in microwave. Place 1/4 C of egg mixture in the middle and 1 scant T of cheese.

4.Roll and wrap in waxed paper

5.to reheat defrost 2 minutes and heat for 30 seconds.

I like to cook up a bunch of this kind of stuff, along with some heat and eat meals for the kids' lunches and our dinners. I spend one entire day cooking and have almost enough stuff for a month. It's been too hot to do it though latley.

Put 4 c sliced strawberries in pie pan.
Mix 1 box Cook & Serve SF Vanilla Pudding Mix with 2 c. water. Cook in microwave 3 min. Stir and microwave 3 more min (until boiling). Stir in one box SF Strawberry Jello. Cool and pour over berries. Chill at least 1 hr.

I made this this a.m. Only had 3 c berries so the entire dessert is only 5 pts. Very yummy (especially with Lite Cool Whip on top). Mine was kind of lumpy after the first 3 minute cook cycle so you may want to stir once during that. I just whisked it really well when I was stirring in the Jello and lumps all came out. Think it would also be good with different fruit/Jello combinations -- like blueberries/lemon Jello or fresh peaches/orange Jello.

Since salsa is 0 points (I like the fresh kind you get in the refrigerated sectin much better than the snack-aisle version), you can pretty much eat as much as you want of it. I just discovered Glenny's Low-Fat Soy Crisps. A whole 1.3-ounce bag is only 2 points and when you combine it with fresh salsa, it's a wonderful snack that actually FEELS like snacking. I know we're supposed to consider baby carrots and ff dressing a "snack," but its' not the same as dipping something crunchy into something. With all the tomatoes, onions and peppers in the salsa, I must have just had two servings of veggies. I feel so naughty, but it's ALL GOOD! I don't know who you are, Glenny, but I say, "Bless you!"

Oh that sounds SO good. I love hot salsa... salsa, chips, and a little melted cheese is one of my favorite snacks. I have to try this with the soy crisps! Thanks!

Fiesta Soup
1 1/2 cup servings for 3 points.
Everything in this soup is Core if you are following that.

This has got to be the EASIEST recipe in the world to make!

1 can niblet corn, don't need to drain it
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 small cans (14-16 oz) chicken broth or one large one
1 can fat free refried beans
1 cup salsa - make sure it has no fat-use whatever you like, mild, hot, etc.

Open all the cans, put the contents into a pot, heat through. Freeze in 1 1/2 cup containers. You can also add some chopped cooked chicken to this if you like, but add points for however much you use.
The refried beans thicken the soup a little, it's VERY filling! Serve with a little shredded cheddar cheese and a few crunched up taco chips if you like (but don't forget to add the points!)

I just made this today, and it is good. I used mild salsa, so I did need to add herbs & spices to liven it up a little.

Lori and I call these "Grammy's"-they are super easy and super yummy!

Break one sheet of reduced fat graham cracker( I like Cinn) in half
Spread on ff cool whip on one and make a sandwhich with the other piece.
We make a whole cookie sheet of these, put in the freezer until frozen and then put in a large freezer zip lock bag.

They are 1 point per "grammy" :cb: :cb: :cb: :cb: :cb: :cb:

Put 4 chicken breasts into sprayed (or non-stick) crockpot. Sprinkle with one envelope reduced sodium taco seasoning mix. Top with 1 cup salsa. Cook on low 6-8 hours. Remove chicken and bring salsa sauce to boil. Add 2 T. cornstarch dissolved in a small amt of water. Stir in 1/4 cup sour cream.

I only used 1/2 pkg taco seasoning (saved a point) and it was plenty spicy. And I didn't thicken with the cornstarch (2 more points - can you tell I'm "cheap with the points"?) - and next time no sour cream. It was good tasting before I added it and the cream turned it an "icky" orangy color - tasted good but was just as good without it.

Here are some easy to pack along recipes. Some I like to make ahead and freeze, some are great for dinner and make great lunches the next day and some are yummy salads. I was working on spell checking and points for all of them when I broke my laptop. So they may not be right on, some I didn't include points right now b/c I am short on time. When I get my laptop back I will be able to fix this, or if I get time later on. Some of the salads and stuff came from "The Formula" and use higher fat stuff or alot of protein. I usually play aroudn with them so they fit my points for the day.

Do you find yourself picking up the eggnog at the store, only to grudgingly put it back after looking at the calories and the sugar? If you're missing the eggnog this season here is a yummmmy alternative at barely 1 point per 1 cup serving. Now, if ya choose to add the rum ;) then don't forget to add the points for it too.

1/2 gallon NF milk
1 3.4oz pkg instant vanilla (or french vanilla) instant pudding mix
1/4 Cup Splenda (+ or - to taste)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoons each ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg

Whisk 3/4 C milk and pudding mix until smooth. Whisk in the Splenda, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in the remaining milk. Refrigerate until good and cold. Makes 8 1-cup servings (25.6 cals per serving)

(PS: being new to WW I'm hoping someone will let me know if I figured points wrong :))
