Look under where it says "User CP" on the purple bar to the left. I think you have to post a certain number of days before you can add a signature. But WELCOME.

faux protein frosty (taste’s just like wendy’s!)
serves one

ingredients:

3/4 cup (6 ounces) almond milk (or milk of your choice, i use unsweetened vanilla almond breeze by blue diamond)
15 ice cubes.. maybe more!
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (use your favorite brand–it’s important that you enjoy the flavor. i like MRM whey natural vanilla or plant fusion vanilla bean)
1-2 TB unsweetened cocoa powder (depending on how chocolatey you like it)
1/4 tsp xanthan gum (this is the KEY ingredient)
1/4 tsp guar gum (or use more xanthan if you don’t have guar)
sweetener of choice (in this one i used 1/4 of a frozen banana for my sweetener, but i always switch it up. other ideas: stevia packet, a few dates, xylitol, or agave)
directions:

blend, blend, blend.
devour.

I haven't figured out the exact points but it is 210 calories. Figuring out the points should be easy, but I want to see the nutrition label of the protein powder first to be sure. The xanthan gum is calorie free, it is used as a thickening agent.
Folks, I made this, and it is awesome. That xanthan gum turns it into the consistency of a Wendy's Frosty. I used the unsweetened almond milk, that is one point. Regular FF milk is two points. I liked mine very chocolatey, so that is one point for 2 TBLS of cocoa powder, then the protein powder that I used MRM whey vanilla has 87 calls and is two points. So that is 4 points or 5 depending how you make it. You need a high powered blender, because with all that ice the volume doubles in size, and that is a lot of ice. lol But man, it is worth it, so filling, and it is good for you too.

Such a hard weekend! I am looking forward to Football being over but then again I am not. I seem to eat too much crap and want to drink beer when we watch games. This weekend I over indulged with chips and French Onion dip. I tried making it with FF sour cream but that just didn't work...yuck lol. Starting fresh today and hope my weight in this weeks is positive. Have a great week!

Welcome, LizzyLou! You have to be a member for at least 20 days, along with 20 posts, down to the second you signed up so that's sometime on the 26th (saw that you signed up on the 6th) so less than a week! Perhaps you should try plain nonfat Greek yogurt instead of FF sour cream? Good sour cream sub, at least to me, it is. Love it with a bit of garlic salt and some freshly chopped scallions as a dip. Weekends are hard for me also.

No school today so I am just catching up on stuff I need to do- cleaning, cooking/prepping meals for the week, laundry, etc. Nothing exciting happened over the weekend- Did my homework, played a couple rounds of corn hole and went bowling. My hip is sore from both activities, lol. I am so outta shape! A good reminder for me to get back to doing the elliptical a couple times a week.

I hope everyone had a good weekend! Let's have a OP week, dearies!

Holy cow... I want that shake. HA! My mouth is seriously watering. Maybe it's because all I can think about is bread and sugar!?!

Day two of the no/low carb experiment went good. Having some serious support in the house is so helpful, my fiance isn't a picky eater and is into eating whatever I do. So, I love that.

Today I was out of the building for work and was busy and running around all day, so I wasn't thinking about snacking or any of that. I prepared salad stuff and cooked several chicken breasts tonight after work, I have those to eat for tomorrows lunch.

Do any of you guys have a delicious Tuna recipe?

LizzyLou I can't believe you don't like the FF sour cream dip concoction. I put a ranch packet in there and could eat it with a spoon! HAHA

My local supermarket has the Weight Watchers "Smart Ones" frozen foods on a special sale. They were on sale 5 for $10, but if you bought 10 for $20 you got an instant $5.00 rebate. Plus I had a $2.00 coupon. so I ended up paying $13.00 for ten.($1.30 each) But I am not crazy about the meals, so all I buy are the breakfast ones to eat as a special treat on the weekends. The French Toast with sausage is good, it even comes with it's own syrup. I also like the egg McMuffin type sandwiches. I bought two boxes of the deserts to have on hand for emergencies.

Today we ate dinner over my sister's house and I brought over a cheese cake for dessert for everyone, and I brought a WW keylime pie for myself. It tasted good, but it was tiny, not worth 4 points on a regular basis.

Tomorrow's Tuesday already. lol. I thought today was Sunday for a second.

Smashlers you look gorgeous!

Maybe I just need to get use to FF sour cream. I will try the greek yogurt and see how that goes. Weight in is tomorrow and hoping to have a small loss... didn't have the best weekend. trying to get use to the simply filling plan is a little harder to stay inside the list of foods but i have been losing since switching...so we will see! Hope everyone had a great Tuesday :-)

Serenity- that shake looks sooo good! I will have to get some xanthan gum first though. Thanks so much for sharing. WTG on your lb down!

Smashlers- No exciting tuna recipes here, the usual tuna salad or tuna patties. One "recipe" I saw on FB last week and want to try is deviled eggs but with tuna thrown in the yolk mixture then prepared just like deviled eggs, although I'm not sure if they added any mayo or anything like that.

Yay for a short school week! Doing good so far on all aspects. I'm hoping to see a loss this Friday before TOM starts.

For Tuna, I make a tuna salad that isn't bad for you.

I use a large pouch of tuna in water. I add one hard-boiled egg, 2 T. of Kraft olive oil reduced fat mayo, and 1 T. of sugar free relish.

This makes 2 servings and is 4 points plus. You can reduce the points to 3 by using less mayo.

Sounds Yummy. I make a tuna salad sandwich everyday for lunch. I thought a made up my own recipe but then today I saw it in a Hungry Girl cookbook I have. lol Do you know the Mann's Broccoli Slaw? I mix that into a can of tuna and some low fat mayo. There is more than enough for three sandwiches then. I use light bread. It is five points with the light bread. I'm like a kid I have to pack my lunch the night before. But now I only have to make the tuna 2x a week. lol When I get sick of tuna, I will do the same with chicken and make chicken salad out of skinless chicken breasts. I don't do well eating processed cold cuts. Too much salt I think.

Serenity THAT IS AWESOME. I love broccoli slaw... I will try that.

amandie tell me more about these tuna patties. Do I have to add bread crumbs? I am trying to stay away from carbs.

Today, I ended up making a huge salad for lunch with a can of tuna an egg and that kraft olive oil mayo. Very similar to you Koshka, except sub relish for red onion.... So I smelled fantastic. HAH!

Today is day 4 low carb for me, and I am not so anxious about it anymore. I caught myself staring at a co-workers saltine crackers today at lunch, though. I had to snap myself out of it. But I will weigh-in tomorrow, and hopefully see some significant movement.
