NON fat - none, fat free cheese and"not too processed" are not compatible.

Reduced fat -
Jarlsberg light ( a type of swiss)
Tillamook makes a decent reduced fat.
Almost any of the 2% milk cheeses taste fine. Use in moderation.

1. Light Soy Milk. I love it, but try not to have TOO much.

2. Grapefruit. I eat half and sprinkle a packet of Splenda on the top.

3. Tomato Sauce. I don't really eat pasta, but I like to spread some on a veggie and fat-free mozzerella sandwich, or to dip stuff in.

4. Strawberries and Pineapple. Gotta have my negative calories!

5. Kashi Honey Sunshine cereal. It kind of tastes like whole-grain Captain Crunch.

  • Nonfat cream cheese: I use it as a sub for butter, spread it on sandwiches, use it to make mac & cheese and an alfredo like pasta, put in baked potatoes, and stir it into hot cereal.
  • Fat Free Plain Greek Yogurt: I eat it every day for breakfast, use it as a sub for mayo and sour cream, make yogurt parfaits, and use it in recipes
  • Spenda and SF Torani syrups: I know it's bad and I'm trying to cut back, but I couldn't survive with some sweetener in my life
  • Hot cereal: Oat bran, oat meal, cream of wheat, cocoa wheat, Kamut, I love them all and couldn't live without them.
  • Chicken breasts: I am the woman of 1,000 chicken recipes. I buy a big package, divide it into 4-oz and 8-oz pieces and freeze individually.

My electronic scale
Lettuce
Chicken
A great salad dressing; raspberry vin, caeser, ranch
Shredded cheese – I get the real stuff & just use portion control.

I have become a salad eater! From the girl who used to ask for “no veggies” in every meal. Yay!

I do the very same thing. My freezer is full of chicken breasts, individually wrapped. Same as you. 2 different sizes. Clearly marked as such.

And I've also got a slew of delicious, excellent, restaurant quality (even better) chicken recipes that I rely on. Couldn't do what I've been doing without them.

I was looking for a dancing chicken smilie, but sadly, there was none to be found.

Barbara, it's good to hear from you! Doesn't surprise me that we've got yet another thing in common. Hope you are well.

Egg whites
Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges
Turkey Bacon
Greek Yogurt
Crystallized Candied Ginger - my new indulgence when I have that "I need something sweet" feeling. Because it's spicy too, more spicy than sweet, I can't have more than one 20-calorie piece without it really burning.

Shrimp (my favorite protein)- of course I prefer lobster but that is really a treat
Popcorn (either 100 calorie microwave packs or kernels to pop fat-free)
Greens to cook like spinach, chard and kale (my body screams at me when I go a few days without)
Vinegars and citrus to use in dressings, marinades, etc
Mini corn tortillas (34 calories each- I pile them with beans, shrimp, touch of avocado and masses of home-made salsa)
