Default What new foods have you discovered?

Since starting weight watchers, what are your three favorite foods that you have discovered? Mine are:
1- Arnold's sandwich thins (I would use these over a hamburger bun any day)
2- PB2 (I love it!)
3- weight watchers ice cream (yum)

What's the PB2 like? All the WW offices in my region are pooling together an order to save on shipping costs, so I signed up for a jar. I loooove PB and can only seem to fit it in once or twice a week, so if it's good, I'll be a very happy lady!

And oh, my favorite discoveries so far are Joseph's oat & flax mini pitas (0 points for one!), laughing cow wedges, and big bags of washed trimmed green beans. I knew all these things existed before, but I've discovered their low point values now.

The PB2 is good. It's a great substitute for peanut butter and has the same consistency. If you don't want to buy it 4 jars at a time, tons of people are selling it on ebay or else you can get it at hyvee grocery stores.

Well, I cook with buckwheat ferinetta. Not too many people like making breads with wheat flour, but if you like that, use buckwheat ferinetta (only available through minn dak online) instead, its really filling

Well, I decided to give PB2 a try and ordered the 4-pack with the online coupon. I'd like to be able to eat an apple with PB and not have to be so skimpy measuring out little dabs of pb.
