Top 3 Favorite "Diet" Foods

Hate using the term "diet", but I am buying these because they're low-something, and good in points for WW.

1. South Beach Diet brand 100-cal Pack Wheat Crackers with the Kraft 2% Milk Sharp Cheddar Cheese stick. (cheese n crackers in a controlled amount)

2. Kashi Cereal/Granola bars. High in protein, fiber, not too sweet, very crunchy and nutty.

3. Lean Cuisine's new Paninis. The bread DOES get toasty, and the steak n cheese one is dang good.

i was reaching for some of those snack packs (like the 100 cal chex mixy, cheese crakcer one) and noticed they all seem to have partially hyodrogenated oils in them (aka. trans fat) so i won't eat those regularly... i like the new Clif Builder's Bar in chocolate (230 cals i think, it's really a small meal). Very tasty, not chalky like most of those bars. I usually go for a yogurt or an apple with a little cheese or peanut butter...

I don't know if these are really "diet" foods but I seem to rely on them a lot as part of a low calorie diet:

1) Morningstar farms veggie sausage links - 80 cals for 2 links and high in protein, low in carbs

2) spinach (makes any dish more filling, great in omelettes)

3) blueberries (why do they have to go out of season???)

I'm not sure if many people know what jicama is, but it's a vegatable that I believe is used in Latin foods. It's like a cross between a potato and a water chestnut. It has lots of water in it and is very crunchy, and barely any calories. About a cup of it sliced is 45 calories. I buy it in the produce section in the precut veggie section.

Skinny Cow!

The Skinny Cow ice cream bars are FAB! They taste so good, there's variety, and they're 140 cals each.

Great thread!

1. SF, FF white chocolate pudding - I pair 1/2 cup pudding with 3/4 cup mixd berries for a 140 cal snack/dessert that is incredibly satisfying - there's seriously nothing else I'd rather eat.

2. La Tortilla factory Whole Wheat wraps. I am a sandwhich girl and at 80 cals with high fiber these are more satisfying than bread and I can stuff them with veggies, a little chicken and drizzle with LF dressing for a lunch that will really last.

3. Balsamic vinegar - used in a reduction or in place of red cooking wine this lovely sweet stuff helps tenderize meat, add zest to a veggie dish and lighten a sauce without sacrificing taste.

Runners up:

Vegetable stock - I use it for steaming, poaching and making light sauces. It has great flavor!

Skim "Royale", "Trim Delux", etc... - this is the skim milk that 'tastes like 2%' - well it cooks like it too! Thickens like it and helps me make lucious gravy and desserts with signifigantly less fat. I substitute xanthan for sugar, eggbeaters for eggs, and halve the butter. Then you've got something rich and amazing than you can justify eating from time to time.
