I know that snacking is one of the most difficult things to avoid, so dont! Here are some healthy ways to keep yourself feeling full through out your day, so you dont jump right off your diet, into the deep end.
Did you know you can have 6 cups of air popped popcorn for only 2 pts WW people? I like to add a little low fat parmesean and butter spray to mine. Sometimes to spice up the flavor, i add soysauce. Its just so good!
Also Blue bunny makes these really great ice cream bars called healthsmart bars. They are only 60 calories, or one point per bar, and they taste like real ice cream! They're so good!
I really love splenda. I add it to almost everything. Try a cup of grapes and spice your fruit up with splenda! So good, and so little calories.
Rice cakes anyone? WW people, did you know that you can eat 2 buttered, or plain ones for only 1 point?! thats 35 calories a cake! what a steal! Plus you can get chocolate and caramel ones for around i think 70 calories. Not to bad either!
1 head of cauliflower
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon of salt (or, for a salt-free alternative, Mrs. Dash table blend)
Preheat oven to 425 º F. Cut out and discard cauliflower core and thick stems. Trim remaining cauliflower into florets the size of golf balls. In a large bowl, add cauliflower, olive oil, and salt. Toss thoroughly. Spread cauliflower on a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper, if available for easy cleanup). Roast for 1 hour, or until much of each floret has become golden brown. Turn 3 or 4 times during roasting. Use crumbled up aluminum foil or paper towels to create a false bottom in your popcorn container, fill it with cauliflower, and serve immediately.

Well I'm addicted to the Carmel Rice Cakes...munchy and sweet...gives me that sweetness I want...7 mini's is 60 calories/1 pt....and the large ones are 50 calories for 1 pt.
Also I make a 1/4 cup unpopped pop corn in brown paper bag in microwave for 4 minutes...comes great...just make sure you close bag well leaving enough room for it to pop and lay on its side.
Today I ran out of my spray butter so tried something new....sprinkled one envelope of Sweet n Low into bag and shook before putting into microwave. Came out great...added a little sweet touch to it...could try adding more if you want it sweeter.
On the idea of Kettle Corn. Was good.
Also when I have yogurt, I put some lite Cool Whip on top, makes it more fun to eat, I enjoy it better than Ice Cream...you might even put a little fresh fruit on it...or sometimes I save the crumbs from the Carmel Rice Cakes and sprinkle that on top of it.
Hey there guys- I've got all these great WW recipes for holiday dips for our party, but I have NOTHING to dip WITH!!!
I think the Light Tostitos are STILL too high for 2 pts for only 6 chips. I'd rather dip with the doritos for double the amount and 1/2 the points!
Anyone have any suggestions? Would you ever dip rice cakes into spinach artichoke dip, or bean dip, or other things? Do you know where I can buy low point rice cakes in a large quantity? I love holiday eating, but I'm just starting to diet now... I need help!!!
