My little "Dressing On-The-Go" squeeze bottle!

It holds salad dressings, fat-free sour cream, etc...I can fill it, stuff it in my purse, and use it in restaurants so I don't have to feel guilty about high-fat dressings & condiments. :)

EggBeaters. Great for the protein with fewer calories. But best of all, for me: wonderful for cooking. Anything I use it for ends up with a fluffier texture, a lighter feel, and it doesn't change the basic flavors.

Flatout Bread 90 or 100 calories, and it makes a great LARGE WRAP! Throw in lettuce, tomato, chicken, or any protein (like egg salad, tuna, or white fish) and create a great meal.

I love EAS chocolate protein powder with Silk almond milk enriched with fiber and protein. I throw in 3 cups of frozen baby spinach. You can not taste the spinach. It tastes just like a CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE.. I holds me until dinner and I love the taste! It is a TREAT.

I don't want to give up sandwiches, and eat only salads when I diet because it's not a good long term solution for me. So I make my own bread (know exactly what's in it) and slice it really thin! You can do the same thing without making your own by buying un sliced. Look at the lower calorie breads that cost twice as much and you will notice the biggest difference is the size of the portion!

Yasso frozen greek yogurt bars - especially the peanut butter cup flavor. They feel indulgent for only 130 calories! The mint chocolate chips are excellent, too, and only 100 calories! I eat dessert every day of the week and I can have one of these without any guilt.

My favorites are also PB2, but I mix 2 TBL with one TBL of real peanut butter so the volume is decadent, but not the damage! I also love my best find-UNSWEETENED CHOCOLATE almond milk. It's seriously the best, and I don't miss the carbs at all! I also love greek yogurt mixed with protein powder and frozen banana. I use my hand blender to "fluff" it up and pop it in the freezer for half an hour. Ice cream protein yumminess! Check out proteinpow.com if you like recipes incorporating protein powders.

protein powder! I wasn't feeling very well. My symptoms included irrestible cravings, muscle & joint pain, restless sleep (lots of very nasty dreams!), and a general lack of energy. Also, falling/breaking hair and nails. When I read an article somewhere by accident, I said, "Aha!" Knowing that I don't eat red meat any more (or very rarely) I decided to try the protein powder. I make a shake with low fat milk, 1 scoop of protein powder, and some fruit lots of mornings. I add 1 scoop to a cup of Greek yogurt. And also there are lots of recipes for getting some protein powder in. If you want to try the hogurt thing, you can use either vanilla or chocolate powder. Stir it in and let it sit a minute or two, and eat with a small orange and a slice of whoe wheat toast for a great breakfast!!!!

Arnold's sandwich thins @ 100 calories per roll, lowish sodium for shelf bread, and 5g of protein and fiber. Great for sandwiches, and I also use it open-face for mini pizzas (spread red pizza sauce or pesto over each half, lightly top with mozz cheese, add some pre-sautéed onions and green peppers that I make up once a week for pizzas or omelettes, a few dashes of oregano, bake for 10 or so minutes until cheese is bubbly). There are other uses for them, I'm sure, but that's all I typically use them for. They live on the shelf longer than most breads as well, which is good since we are not used bread people so there's less waste or pressure to eat something for which I'm not in the mood.

Laughing Cow Lite is another favorite. I use it on sandwiches, particularly wraps for a good sticky cheese to hold the wrap together. Use it on bagels in place of cream cheese. One wedge spreads a long way and it's pre-portioned so I don't have to dirty my measuring spoons. It's yummy in recipes also for dessert type items that call for cream cheese for same taste but less calories. One of these days when I have time, I'm determined to try making a cheesecake using just that and see what happens.

Ground flax seed. I add it to oatmeal, yogurt or sprinkle it on toast peanut butter.

Steel cut oats.

8/22/14 11:55 A

My newest find is steel cut oatmeal. It has more texture and tastes nuttier than the regular oatmeal. I also feel like it keeps me satisfied longer. Oats have a fair amount of protein -- 8 grams in one cup cooked. It takes longer to cook than regular oatmeal but worth the wait.

Cauliflower rice - take raw cauliflower and either use a grater to grate it or use a food processor to chop it up so it's about the size of rice. It's so versatile - use it in place of high carb rice; in fact I just found a recipe for Asian Cauliflower Fried Rice that I'm anxious to try.

Whole grain pasta. It tastes the same as white pasta, but holds up better for freezing and reheating, and has a ton of healthy fiber, so it is much more filling. Why did I wait so long to try it?

I love to make a big salad out of baby arugula and Vidalia onion slivers...with a couple tablespoons of Wishbone fat-free Italian and a generous grinding of pepper.

The arugula has a surprising amount of vitamins A and K in it, and I love its peppery taste emoticon

I love hummus and grated carrot on a whole wheat English muffin (Aunt Millie's brand has only 100 calories!); a fresh crisp apple with a mozzarella string cheese; peanut butter (melted in the microwave) over spoon size shredded wheat; cocoa puffs and slivered almonds with Almond Breeze.

Hummus, for sure (and definitely as a sandwich spread - it's perfect for that), and my current favourites for multiple uses are barley and lentils. It's a rare day now that I'm not using at least one of these, yet I'd never tried any of them a year ago...

As a milk lover I was surprised to find I like Almond Breeze unsweetened almond milk. I love that it's high calcium, has no objectionable ingredients (to me) and especially that 8 oz is only 30 calories. I still drink my beloved organic milk though.

I thought this would be fun :) What are some products or other things you've found that you really like since you started your journey to better health?

For me, I really like almond milk. I stick with the unsweetened versions, for cooking and pouring on my cereal. They're normally around 30-40 calories per cup, much better than skim milk. I also almost always have frozen bananas in the freezer. Who needs ice cream when you can just blend a few into a thick shake or smoothie?
