Cheesy broccoli slaw: This is one of my favorite things to eat for lunch. I put broccoli slaw in a bowl, a little bit of water, and cover with a paper towel. Then I put it in the microwave for 3 minutes. I then put 2 blocks of Laughing Cow Light Swiss, and one serving of fat free shredded cheese. Put in the microwave for one minute. Mix and enjoy!
I also like to add hot sauce, like tabasco or Chalula.

I absolutely love macaroni and cheese, but there's two big problems. 1)I cook just for myself, so making a whole box makes no sense for me. 2)it's usually a huge fat and calorie bomb.
One day, I was experimenting, and I found a solution. Cook 1/2 cup of whole wheat macaroni. Drain the pasta, and return it to the pot. Take one slice of Kraft 2% milk sharp cheddar cheese, put it on the pasta, and stir til melted. It makes delicious mac and cheese with 260 calories and 4.5 grams of fat!
To round out the meal, you could add some chicken breast, lean ham, or turkey sausage plus a big side of veggies. This totally satisfies my craving and also allows me to make only what I need, intead of a whole box!
I have lots of cravings for things I should not eat because when I do, I have a hard time stopping. For instance, tortilla chips and melted cheese--my biggest craving! When I get this craving, and before I melt that cheese, I have learned to STOP...and decide if this is REALLY how I want to use my
allotted calories for the day. Usually, I forgo the chips and cheese because I know that feeding that immediate craving will only cause me to be more hungry LATER, when I'm out of available calories!
