    I have to agree with others who are concerned about these processed foods that are listed. Imagine that somebody actually added nitrous oxide to high fructose corn syrup and unhealthy oils. The substitutions we find for things we shouldn't be eating are sometimes more unhealthy than what we're trying to avoid. The use of artificial flavors and sugars to taste like a cake we used to eat is kind of defeating the purpose of learning a new way to eat healthier. I'm just sayin' - 3/26/2015   11:42:33 PM

    Read the package on the mayo made with olive oil. It says olive oil , canola oil. and soybean oil. Doesn't sound like there is much olive oil in there - 9/29/2009   6:16:29 AM

    I bought the mayo with olive oil, It is very good and creamy. Tastes good and you can't tell the difference from regular mayo.

    Some of the other items also look good and I will try them - 8/17/2009   7:07:47 AM
    I will have to try some of the new Yoplait flavors. I am a person that likes condiments on my sandwich. My favorite find is Dietz & Watson Cranberry Honey Mustard. One Tsp. is 10 calories. It is fabulous. I found it in the deli section of my grocery store. - 5/12/2009   9:07:48 AM
    I'm surprised that all these processed foods are recommended. Especially Cool Whip in a can....it's two kinds of oils, high fructose corn syrup, and water. That's just gross.

    You're better off getting Reddi-Wip Fat Free Whipped Cream, it even has 1/3 of the calories (5 vs 15 for two tbs), and the first two ingredients are cream and non-fat milk.

    I love Amy's fat-free Alphabet soup. I bought it not knowing it was fat-free, and it tastes amazing! I would certainly try more of that brand. - 5/12/2009   8:58:28 AM
    The mayo with Olive Oil is definitely better then regular mayo, however, I don't really like "real" mayo lol I prefer Miracle Whip Light... I guess b/c I grew up on it maybe? My husband swears by "real" mayo b/c he grew up on it, lol so theres an on going battle at my house. Sometimes I make tuna salad and I add Miracle Whip instead and he has no idea so I don't even think he cares lol he just says he does! - 5/11/2009   6:18:52 AM

    The Nabisco Newton's Fruit Crisps are great!. Have tried mixed berry and apple cinnamon. There are 2 in each 100 cal pack. They are crisp with a good flavor, not too sweet and easy to carry as a snack.
    I've also tried Deutsche Kuche Mixed Fruit Muesli from Aldi's. It has whole grain oat, wheat, and barley flakes with dried dates, apricots, apples, strawberries and banana chips. Half a cup stats: 190 cal., 2g fat, o sat. and trans fat, 55mg sodium, 39g carbs, 4g fiber, 21g sugar and 4 g protein. I mix it with plain nonfat yogurt for a real day starter! - 5/9/2009   7:31:26 AM
    I was interested in seeing what everyone else thought about these new products, most of which I haven't tried. I was wondering how the mayo with olive oil would be, now I might give that one a try ,when I need to buy some. The single serve lunch meat seems like it might be a good choice. I usually only use one slice of lunch meat, and one slice of cheese on a sandwich, when I eat that. Will be checking some of these out if the contents doesn't seem to bad, as with too much sodium. It seems like I'm always going over on that ,and I don't ever add extra to my food. - 5/8/2009   9:58:43 PM

    I wasn't a mayo type of gal. But the new mayo with olive oil is very tasty. I have purchased it again. - 4/28/2009   7:52:53 PM

    One of my weight loss group people told me about the Pineapple Upside down yogurt and I said yuck. She said it was terrific. Not being a huge yogurt fan, but a good group leader, I tried it. It IS great! Nature's Own bread (100% whole wheat) is one of my favs, along with Ronzoni's Smart Taste pasta, white, but full of fiber and LOW fat! - 4/17/2009   10:45:06 AM

    Love the Kraft mayo with olive oil! It adds extra zip to tuna salad!

    Cool whip in a can tastes good as well - not real whipped cream but good for daily use. Pumpkin pie still has to have the real thing!

    We have been using the Kraft 2% cheeses for quite a while. Tastes the same unless you are comparing to a high quality cheese like $6-10 a pound cheese. Melts great - we use on quesadillas, omelets, casseroles

    Tried splenda with fiber and did not notice any difference in the taste without - 4/16/2009   7:50:54 PM

    "The Green Giant Valley Steamers and similar products by Pictsweet and others are fantastic! They are bagged veggies and you pop the bag in the microwave for a few mintues and viola! A healthy, delish meal in minutes. I love the Roasted Red Potatoes with Beans in Rosemary Butter Sauce. Mmmmm. The Baby Snap peas are great too. And if you like cheese, they offer veggies like broccoli and cauliflower in cheese" - SillyMomx3

    I totally agree with her!! I'm having the Roasted red potatoes with green beans, in Rosemary butter sauce for lunch right now. At 80 cal. for 3/4 cup cooked, these veggies and potatoes are tasty and well worth the calories. Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!
    I have also tried the cafe steamers, all different kinds. They taste great and are convenient...and the ones I tried ranged frfom about 250-360 cal. approx. My favorite was the Margherita chicken!! Yummo!!!!!! - 3/9/2009   5:24:56 PM

    Love the Lean Cuisine seafood selects - I've tried the 2 tilapia ones and the Salmon and basil, will definitely buy these regularly. - 2/24/2009   11:32:13 AM

    The Amy's products look pretty good. - 2/13/2009   11:23:57 PM

    The Jello-- Sugar free rice pudding with cinnamon is very good...I would never buy the regular flavor rice pudding, for some reason the cinnamon makes it takes so much better!
    - 2/3/2009   12:01:38 PM
    the Lean Cuisine Parmesean Crusted fish is really good. Even in the microwave the crust on the fish doesn't get soggy. - 2/3/2009   10:50:02 AM
    I have had the shrimp pasta lean cuisine. It was really good. I am allergic to fish so I couldn't try any others. - 2/2/2009   12:16:29 PM

    My fave new product is Newton's Fruit Crisps. It has no HFCS and 100 cal for 2 bars. They are VERY crunchy, thin bars. My family (not dieting) went through 2 boxes in 24 hours! Great snack. - 1/24/2009   7:30:26 AM
    I have had all 3 of those flavors of the Yoplait light and My fav is the Pineapple upside down cake. My hubby liked the strawberry shortcake. The raspberry cheesecake wasn't really raspberry tasty it didn't taste like cheesecake either. It had an off putting taste. But that is my opinion. - 1/19/2009   6:55:25 PM
    The Lean Cuisine Seafood selections are really good. It's an easy way to get seafood into your diet without all the prep work! - 1/19/2009   10:09:16 AM

    The Salmon Basil Lean Cuisine meal and the Shrimp and Angel Hair Pasta have been on our shelves for some time. I like both of these meals. I haven't tried the rest of them yet. And have used the Kraft 2% cheeses for years. - 1/7/2009   12:08:33 PM

    I love splenda and the mayo with olive oil, i only use mayo on my light tunafish each day for lunch and 1 teaspoon does the trick, and it tastes the smae as the regular stuff. - 11/18/2008   9:43:20 PM

    I love SmartOnes frozen dinners. They taste great, are full of flavor and are a great price at Wal-Mart (vs. the grocery store). I don't participate in Weight Watchers but I have a friend who does and is always talking about point values. Since SmartOnes calculates the points for you I can easily see that I am making a healthy on the go choice without laboring over the label in the store. - 11/18/2008   9:30:16 AM
    Cool whip in a can is really good- don't know why it took so long for them to put it in a can. Just as creamy and delicious as it always is, just in a can! I also tried the lean cuisine fish- I had the tilapia, very good. But be sure to follow the cooking instructions and don't eat it unless it is fully cooked (white and flaky)! It was a little less crisp then I would have liked, but I think undercooking it and overcooking it doesn't help :) - 11/13/2008   12:17:29 PM

    cool whip lite is amazing. especially with some sugar free jello!
    my boyfriend who eats candy and sweets all day even tried it and thought it was great! he couldnt believe it was so good and actually healthy!

    i picked up some lean cuisince seafood. its been in my freezer for about 3 weeks now because im nervous to try it! im worried that it might taste all fishy and gross. lol but i think ill eat it for lunch tomorrow! - 11/5/2008   10:01:00 AM

    Looking forward to trying out the Lean Cuisine Seafood meals! - 11/1/2008   3:47:56 PM

    The Oscar Mayer single-serves are good for people like me who rarely eat that kind of meat... the whole package doesn't spoil, but the "single" serving is still way too much for me to eat at once! - 10/12/2008   4:01:02 PM

    I love the Yo-Plus. Great flavor and good texture. I usually eat it as my morning snack. - 10/6/2008   6:14:26 PM

    I have had the seafood selction meals from Lean Cuisine and I liked them! They are a bit more expensive than other meals, but tasted pretty good. - 9/27/2008   5:38:23 PM
    I hope that the new products that they post have no artifical ingredients. I know that the cool whip has high fructose corn syrupp in it. That is one of the ingredients that should not be consumed by anybody. - 9/12/2008   9:13:18 AM

    Cool Whip Light in a can! I love mixing Light Cool Whip with sugar free pudding - low cal and it tastes so good! - 9/10/2008   4:42:10 PM
  • 89
    I'm going to look for the YoPlait. The flavors sound delish. I have tried the Jello Sugar Free Rice Pudding in Creme Brulee and it was nasty! It felt as though I had a mouth full of dead maggots in a flavored pudding! Just yucky! But that's just my opinion of it. - 9/9/2008   5:54:31 PM

    The Mayo is Wonderful - 9/8/2008   8:54:11 PM

    We've tried the mayonnaise with olive oil. Pretty good. - 9/7/2008   10:26:53 AM

    The splenda I haven't tried. I rarely have to add sugar to anything but if I do its just that sugar. Since the experts can't agree on whether or not those who constantly consume splenda will/will not begin developing cancer at alarming rates in the future I try to stay away. Though some diet alternatives are made with it and I consume it in that matter.

    As for the Olive Oil Mayo. I have tried that. I bought it because its heart healthy, we all know that olive oil is a great alternative to vegetable oil. I was skeptical to try it because of its color- it has like a tint of green- due to the olives I am sure. Yet, it tastes very good. I really can't taste a major difference between it and regular Mayo except it taste lighter, the tast is slightly more faint but great. I would say try it. - 9/6/2008   10:38:19 PM

    the south beach living pizzas are the best "light" pizzas on the market, in my opinion. i love that they have 9 or 10 grams of fiber and whole grains instead of just white flour like healthy choice and lean cuisine do.
    yes, the sodium is high, but if you monitor your sodium intake for the rest of the day, you won't go over your range. - 9/6/2008   11:41:52 AM
    Kraft Olive Oil Mayo is great!! - 9/5/2008   11:47:33 AM
  • 83
    check the sodium level on the south beach meals .. the ones i have checked in the past are super high - 9/5/2008   6:37:48 AM

    Seafood Selections by Lean Cuisine are yummy. They are part of my one person cooking plan! :) Splenda is the best thing since sliced bread. I use it all the time. The travel version is perfect. I take it everywhere. I will be going to Afganistan and it will definetly be part of my packing list! The mayo and Kraft cheese are perfect for a healthy life style. They taste just like the others and the cheese lasts longer than the cheeses with rbST. - 9/4/2008   3:15:35 PM
    Cool Whip in a can was VERY GOOD and convenient, although a little pricey compared to other canned whipped toppings. - 9/4/2008   1:36:42 PM

    I've tried the Jell-o sugar free cinnamon rice pudding and it is the perfect snack...I actually have one on my desk waiting now. Sooo good!! I can't wait to try some of the others especially Amy's chili products, Mayo with Olive Oil, and the Lean Cuisine stuff. - 9/4/2008   10:41:37 AM
  • 79
    I also love the new Jell-O Sugar free Dark Chocolate pudding!!! It tastes amazing and only has 60 caloires. It's perfect for when I have a chocolate craving. - 9/4/2008   10:14:01 AM
  • 78
    Another great product I've found are the Sugar-Free Jell-O Singles (pudding). I like both the chocolate & vanilla flavors. They're just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, but are only 70 or 80 calories (depending on which flavor). - 9/4/2008   12:11:48 AM
  • 77
    Ooooh. And I loved Yoplait already! - 9/4/2008   12:08:54 AM
  • 76
    I would like to state for the record that the JellO Sugar Free Cinnamon Rice Pudding is SO FREAKING AMAZING. I haven't tried the Creme Brulee... - 9/3/2008   9:00:47 PM

    I love that Lean Cuisine - I've added that one to the weekly rotation. - 9/3/2008   2:35:04 PM

    I can't wait to try the whipped cream and mayo. I will stop at the grocery tonight. - 9/2/2008   2:43:52 PM
  • 71
    I enjoy many of Amy's vegan frozen meals and soups. I also appreciate that they offer reduced-sodium varieties, as well. I'm also a fan of Luna bars and Larabars. It would be great if they came out with more flavors sometime soon. - 9/2/2008   1:31:59 PM
