    actually doing the points I have found that if I stick to my daily points allowance I am at the very lowest range or under what spark people says I need for calories. I usually try to throw a few of my 35 weekly points in each day which puts me around 1500 calories. I have been trying to stick to my daily points the past few days though because I ate up most of my weekly points this past weekend.

    Great blog...again. I'm back to tracking on the nutrition tracker as it always keeps me more accountable!

    hummus and crackers are one of my staple snacks that I have at least 4 days a week. Love it!

    If anyone is wondering how to make the lasagna rolls
    Here is how to make it... very simple.

    Ingredients
    8-10 whole wheat lasagna noodles
    1 1/2 cups pasta sauce (I use ragu garden combination sauce)
    1 cup part skim or Fat Free ricotta cheese
    1 cup part skim mozzarella cheese
    1/2 box frozen spinach

    1. Boil 8 whole wheat lasagna noodles until tender & drain (I usually make 10 noodles just in case one or two fall apart)
    2. mix 1 cup shredded mozzarella, 1 cup ricotta cheese & 1/2 pack thawed and drained frozen spinach (squeeze all the water out of spinach before mixing in)
    3. separate cheese mixture into 8 portions.... I usually just press it down in the bowl I mixed it in and then cut it with my spoon like a pie... that way I have 8 equal portions I can just scoop out of the bowl.

    4. lay one noodle out, spread 1 portion of cheese up the length of the noodle, then spread a thin layer of sauce (1/8 cup) up the noodle over top of the cheese. Then roll the noodle up and place it spiral side up in a baking dish

    5. continue rolling all the noodles. spoon remaining 1/2 cup sauce over each noodle and bake in the oven @ 350* for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes or so.

    ENJOY

    most grocery stores I have seen carry it... you can usually find it in the refrigerated section of the deli near where they keep the specialty cheeses and pasta salads and such.

    Every store I have shopped at carries it... except the small town stores. Walmart carries it as well.

    I shop at sams club frequently and they carry larger containers of it for a better price.... I would try it first though before committing to a large container... some people don't like it.

    You can also find recipes online and make your own. All it basically is, is chick peas (garbanzo beans), olive oil and spices ect. You just blend all the ingredients together in a food processor until it makes a paste like substance.

    Hope this info helped.

    The lasagna rolls are great because you can really measure how much pasta you are getting, instead of trying to estimate based on slice size. Each roll has the same amount of spinach, cheese and sauce too so its a very portion controlled meal.
