Several times over the weekend, I got into discussions with friends/family about Weight Watchers. It seems that more people in my life are partipating in it than ever before and why not? I really think it's one of the best ways to get into a healthier lifestyle that you can stick with. And this time of year everyone starts thinking about being healthier.
In any case these conversations nearly always turn to "tips and tricks". One point snacks you didn't know existed. Ways to make every day food healthier, etc. I thought I would share with you some of my tips and tricks and then anyone who has some can leave them in the comment section or email me. THEN I will make these into a master list and email it out to anyone who wants it along with some websites I find helpful.
Ok here's mine:
* Subsitute fat free cottage cheese for sour cream in dips. Just run it through the food processor to make it smooth and no one will know the difference. Since there is 1 point in 1/4 a cup of fat free sour cream and 1 point in 1/3 a cup of fat free cottage cheese - you can have more of it! Great for dip fanatics. (I do love dip)
* For coffee fanatics who like it sweet - try the sugar free liquid Coffeemates in hazlenut and french vanilla. All the taste of that large Hazlenut regular from Dunks but less than 1/2 the calories. Go here for a coupon.
*I learned at my friend Jenn's house last night: Popcorn Indiana's Kettle Corn is DELICIOUS, satisfies a sweet munchies attack and only 2 points a serving (for 2 cups!)
Ok, now you!
