Default Magic foods?!?

I was just wondering if anyone has found any *magic* foods. You know ones you have found that tasted great, and didnt put on the weight, lol. I'll share mine.. Oatmeal, since I started having it for breakfast, I've really noticed a change. I like to cook the quick cooking oats, not the instant stuff. I like eat it with Brown Sugar, blueberries, and 1% milk!

I love cottage cheese on everything!

It's so low calorie, and it beats regular cheese.

I love roasting or grilling red bell peppers they give such a great flavor and go great with so many things! Or any peppers grilled are good

To go with your picks I tried putting a tiny bit of sugar free jello mix in some cottage cheese the other day I personally didn't like it but maybe some of you would there are many diff flavor options then. My friend likes cracking pepper on cottage cheese also, I tried it didn't like it too much but maybe some of you would.

I was thinking I want to try some oatmeal with almond milk and sprinkle in a little bit of the sugar free jello in there and see how it tastes kind of like your own flavored sugar free oatmeal mixes I have yet to try it but maybe tomorrow morning. Can have peach, strawberry, raspberry whatever you like and only need a small sprinkle.

I really wish they would make some sugar free jello mix with stevia as I don't really like to have the artificial sweeteners but I think it could be a good treat Or do they?


oh yeah sugar free jello mix is also great mixed with whip cream for a low calorie frosting substitute for cupcakes or cake would be a great cheat meal idea can get sugar free or fat free cool whip also and reduced sugar cake mix and substitute some unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil or butter at a 1:1 ratio to make it a little more guilt free, or even skimp on the egg yolks like if it calls for 2 eggs do 1 egg and one egg white I did this still turned out good. Just have to control yourself and just have one cupcake I ate one and stuck the cupcakes and coolwhip mix in the freezer for later I can remove one and let it thaw in the fridge whenever I want one for a cheat meal. I made chocolate cupcakes and orange flavored coolwhip so it is like chocolate orange yum.

This thread is a great idea also need some ideas how to spruce up my meals.

They all sound good, I might just have to try out your oatmeal ideas, and I LOVE cottage cheese too, but I just cant eat it with anything sweet, lol, so I think the jello mix and cottage cheese is out for me to

Going2Bskinny - you can also make cake with 1 serving of any flavor cake mix, mixed with 1 oz diet soda of your choice (and you can find some sweetened with Stevia, now). Mix and bake as directed.

Yep...nothing but the cake mix and soda.

There are 12 servings in a standard cake mix, so a 12-oz can of diet soda, mixed with 1 box of cake mix, will work perfectly. I like to bake a single serving at a time, so I measure out 1 serving of cake mix by weight, then add 1 oz of soda.

oh wow :O that is awesome thanks! I'll try that. Do you know any brand names for the cake mixes that use stevia? Do they make any better alternatives for cool whip that you know of or anyone know of? I know you can whip heavy cream yourself or half and half but any better lower fat ones?

Is this really good?

I'm thinking that I did this several years ago and had to throw it away it was so gross.
I made the whole cake mix though, in a 9x13 pan. I guess I could try the 1 oz way and if I/my kids don't like it, I can still make it the regular way.

I agree with you on the cottage cheese!

I also recently discovered barley... YUM. And it has fiber and protein. I cooked it in Chicken broth (next time I will make my own broth and cook it in that) and added garlic. Yum, yum, yum!

Laughing Cow cheese wedges, it tastes just like cream cheese without all the fat and calories. I love it with roasted red bell pepper in and omlet, yum. It feels like you are indulging. Anything you would use cream cheese for you can use it (plain style for sweet uses) and there are also flavors-- french onion and garlic herb. Yum!

Also I buy the big trays of pre cut fruit and veggies. If I feel like snacking, they are ready to go.

Wasa Crackers, multi grain. Really good with low sodium lunch meat and one slice of Sargento's reduced fat cheese. Takes longer to eat than bread and is very filling.

Lastly, Hungry Girl books-- she has FABULOUS recommendations for lower cal/ fat substitutions. I made her version of the Chili's Southwest egg rolls last night and they were a huge hit.
