Tired of eating the same old stuff?
Here are some of their best ideas. Whether you've got the mid-afternoon munchies or a late-night craving, none of these favorites will cost you many values.
"Pitas! I can't live without them; they have so many uses. Make pita chips or slice them into two layers and toast them for two tostada shells!"
"Ground turkey breast! The meal possibilities are endless! Whether it's sloppy joes, turkey tacos, spaghetti sauce, turkey loaf or turkey burgers, I can find a million ways to make it."
"Vegetable quesadillas. I eat them all the time with fat-free sour cream; they are so filling."
"Gum! gum has saved me on many a day when I wanted to eat, eat, eat."
"Grape tomatoes — great for guilt-free snacking."
"Tomato juice with horseradish and hot sauce — just like having a Bloody Mary. I like to drink it while making dinner."
"A Boca Burger, Bun, Cheese. They make a low-calorie cheeseburger I can't live without!"
"Pirate's Booty. I wish this goody wasn't so popular because my supermarket constantly runs out of it."
"Sweet potatoes sliced into strips and 'fried' in a pan with olive oil Yum!"
