Simply Asia Sesame Chicken Rice-Noodle Soup- BLECH!!

:( Yucko! I tried this tonight cause the whole bowl of soup was less than one corndog the kids were having for dinner, but I couldn't even finish it.

Very strange taste.

Do your have any heads up about yucky stuff to avoid?

Oh I have another one! Don Pancho low carb tortillas! uck uck! I'd rather just have a taco salad while everyone else has soft tacos!

One thing I tried today was the Lean Pockets Ultra Meatball Mozzarella.
The fillling was fantastic, and the crust? At first I was just turned off by the crust, but towards the middle I really started liking it.

I don't like the crust of the Lean Pockets Ultras at all. It is like eating a sponge. The original Lean Pockets are so much better.

I don't mind the fat-free shredded cheeses. Like the cheddar and the mozzarella. I sprinkle the mozzarella on my single-serve homemade pizzas and the cheddar's good in tortillas or quesadillas. But the other fat-free cheese, I know what you mean, it's not very good at all.

Another food I can't stand (I can't really say to avoid it because I'm sure there are some people out there that like it) are the 'fake' veggie hot dogs. I bought a package of the Morningstar Farms hot dogs. I cooked one. I took one bite and spit that bite along with the rest of the package into the trash.

If I want a hot dog, I'm gonna eat a hot dog. Poopie on that fake crap. Although I DO like the veggie/soy burgers and Morningstar Farms crispy chicken patties. Those I'll eat. But the hot dogs made me about half sick.

Fatfree mayo = gross! :lol:

Also don't like a lot of the frozen dinners. In fact there's only about 3 I do like (granted I haven't tried them all).

And I'm with you on the veggie dogs, Linda.

Oh that stuff is soooooo gross, I agree.

I don't like fat-free salad dressings, either. I don't mind the light versions, but fat-free? Forget it.

I also can't stand yogurt.

Don't like that Kashi cereal, it feels like I'm eating grass and twigs.

Basically anything 'fake' (besides veggie and soy burgers) that they try and make taste like the real thing but it's just not.

I don't like Kashi Go Lean (twigs) but I looove Kashi Go Lean Crunch. Tastes like some kinda uber Sugar Smacks.

I LOVE Kashi (the twigs kind)... but I'm weird like that LOL

YUCKO to frozen dinners that have the chicken that's been reprocessed so that it tastes more like a wet sponge than chicken! ICK. And double yuck to fat free dressing! EWE.

I agree on the soy hot dogs. Hebrew national has 97% fat free hot dogs that are beef and are EXCELLENT. My hubby likes them better than regular Oscar Meyer and they are like 50 calories apiece or something insane like that. check them out!

amber! THANK YOU!

I LOVE hot dogs but refuse to spend 400 of my hard earned calories on ONE hot dog!!

Now that summer is here and tons more cookouts at the lake I needed something good to grill!

I heard about them but was afraid to try them, now I will! (if I can find them!)

On the subject of hotdogs, ballpark smoked turkey franks are a really good substitute---45 cal. apiece. I throw them on the grill; my husband has no clue they are anything different than the regular ones. One of those with a "lite bun"--90 cal.-- and there ya go!

I found some the other day that I haven't tried yet, but since my son is a hot dog hound, I wanted to give him something lower in fat. So I bought Ball Park Bun-sized white turkey franks. They're only 45 calories each and no saturated fat.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed they go over okay with him because this child, only 6 years old, can detect when something is even slightly off. But I'm slowly making small changes in his diet without him even knowing. For example, when I make him toast in the morning, I use butter spray rather than spreadable butter or margarine. I just recently started slipping the cheddar flavor soy cheese into his grilled cheese sandwiches. Things like that. Anywhere I can cut fat and sugar from his diet, I cut it because he's one of those kids that simply refuses to eat anything healthy.

Oh, haha! I just now posted about those right above and didn't even notice you were talking about the same thing. I'm glad you say they're good because I haven't tried them on my little one yet.

I guess I'm weird because I like the morningstar corn dogs. But then, I do slather them with ketchup and mustard, so that might have something to do with it.

I really like the corn dogs too!

The veggie dogs are, imo, YUCKO YUCKO YUCKO! They taste different!

Maybe it's the corn bread blanket the corn dogs are rolled in that makes them taste ok. :dunno:

Well, I don't like "regular" corn dogs, so I've never seen the point of trying the veggies ones! :lol: I'll have to look for the turkey dogs though, because I do like a grilled hot dog in the summer. When I go into Anchorage they have food vendors on the street with all kinds of dogs - usually I splurge, but I only get there once or twice a summer, so not too bad.

I don't like any veggie item that tries to pretend it is meat! This includes veggie dogs, veggie burgers, veggie crumbles. I like the garden burgers (that are full of veggies and aren't trying to taste like meat). Anything that looks like meat but isn't is something I'll stay away from :)

"Zero calorie" ranch dressing.

i didn't like "meatless" products until i tried Trader Joe's. My favorites are the corn dogs (soooo good, my bf who is not a vegetarian, didn't know that I gave him a meatless product), and the "Meatless" meatballs. they taste sooo good with bbq sauce and the frozen mixed peppers that Trader Joe's sell.

I don't like tofu. I think I might be the only vegetarian who doesn't like it.

I also don't like Fat Free Ranch dressing.
