Default Cheating?

What are some good "legal" foods that you eat that make you feel like you are cheating because they are that good? For me its greek yogurt with a little sugar free caramel syrup and a dash of cinnamon. YUM. Its a tangy sweet creamy snack that tastes like it should be loaded with fat and calories but thankfully its not.

For me? Salsa. It's the best thing to ever happen to vegetables! The only problem is finding something healthy to eat WITH the salsa, lol.

I like the skinny cow ice cream sandwiches and laughing cow cheese.

I tried Haagen Daz's low fat vanilla frozen yogurt last night and I couldn't believe how rich it was. Granted that at 180 cals for 1/2 cup it isn't exactly calorie friendly but it only has 2.5 grams of fat and it was so good, it was more like rich ice cream than frozen yogurt. That being said, I just checked their website and it says 200 calories and 4.5 grams of fat for the same product??? Now I'm confused, the packaging has different into.

Anyway, it was good, but I think I'll stick with the Skinny Cow sandwiches...lol.

Portabella mushroom pizzas are -amazing-. The flavor of the portabella is different from the average mushroom you find sliced up in a blue carton, and they are big, hearty, and filling.

2-4 portabella mushrooms, bake them at around 350 for 15 mins on each side. Take a canned tomato sauce and pour some into the basin of the mushroom. Shake on some salt, pepper, oregano, and whatever else you like on your pizza (but those three seasonings usually suffice in order to make it taste pizza-y). I then use plenty of either fat free or low fat mozz, and sprinkle a little sharp romano or parmesan, and broil that sucker till it's got a bubbly, golden top.

Seriously, these things are super low in calories depending on how much cheese you use, and even then they don't typically exceed more than 40-50 cals each.

Wendy's.

I was a fast food junkie. I love that I can go there and get a chili, or a good salad even a burger. It fixes my fast food craving. I also like that if I'm ever out and about, there's usually a Wendy's close by.
I had lunch there today with my daughter, I got chili and a side salad, it was under 300 calories.

I absolutely love Fage fat free with cinnamon, splenda, and a splash of vanilla. It is like icecream for breakfast.

I also love to cut a potato into fries, dip into egg white with spices, spray with Pam, and bake. Sooooo yummy.

Oh my, that sounds amazing. I am SO going to try that. Anything with cheese or that even resembles a pizza grabs my attention.

Mine would probably be a healthy alternative I found to ranch dressing. I use a single-serving cup of Fage fat-free Greek yogurt, and stir in a small amount of ranch seasoning. You get a large amount of creamy, tangy ranch dressing for an AMAZING amount of calories. Really, depending on how much of the packet of seasoning you use (it's 5 cals per serving). I maybe only used two to three teaspoons, and it averaged about 100-110 calories. I used it to dip my veggies in, and it was heavenly!
