I mentioned a couple of snacks I found with fruits or vegetables in the meeting today.
Here are the details…
Laughing cow light creamy Swiss 1 wedge is 1 point
Water crackers (4) is 1 point
Thin slices of pear
Baba ghanoush 2 tbs is 1 point (whole foods)
Lentil chips with sea salt ( whole foods) 3 points for 22
YES……22 chips, as in twenty- two!!! For only 3 PointPlus values!!!
I also eat cauliflower with the baba ghanoush. All great with a glass of vino!
Great meeting today!
Thanks for taking the time to share your snacks with us. The taste of thin slices of pears (which are in season now, by the way, and wonderful!) with Light Swiss Laughing Cow cheese wedges is fabulous!! Great idea!! I love that we can have TWO wedges of Light Swiss Laughing Cow cheese for only ONE PointsPlus!! The possibilities are endless:-)
I had to look up baba ghnoush because I didn’t know what it was, so for any others in the dark too, here’s what I learned:
Baba Ganoush, which is often called caviar d’aubergines, is a tasty Mediterranean spread made from eggplant pureed with tahini, garlic, and olive oil. They say it’s easy to make (but I, of course, would rather buy it already prepared!) and even improves if made a day or two in advance. It is typically served with toasted bread or pita triangles.
Ok, everyone…that’s all I have for today. The wind is howling and it’s spitting snow flurries out there, so stay warm and try to keep the snacking under control!! I will be at the new Weight Watchers Store in Schaumburg, leading my 10am and noon meetings today. Hope to see you there!!
