Trader Joe'S Mini Mint Ice Cream Mouthfuls (sandwiches)
Members Were Sparked
I love ice cream but I can't seem to just have one scoop let alone half a scoop. The solution for me was to buy the TJ Mini Mint Mouthfuls...I only eat half a recommended serving...1 sandwich and it's only 60 calories and it packs a punch. I satisfy my ice cream craving without all the fat.

I discovered that Trader Joe's has two frozen delights under 100 calories that are really tasty. Mango & Cream (60) and Coffee Latte& Cream (90). They are small popsicles without the sticks. There are 8 to a box. Be prepared for a mouthful of happiness!250224
The go-to food for me is a Caesar-type salad that's quick to throw together and is yummy. I cook up the chicken ahead of time (1 tsp olive oil, heated & add chicken cut in bite sized pieces - season with cajun seasoning & cook til done), and keep the other ingredients (Parm. cheese, light caesar dressing & romaine lettuce) on hand. The recipe for this is in Spark Recipes under "Cajun Chicken Caesar Salad".
I love to serve this with Trader Joe's Everything Pretzel chips
Providing myself with the right support is what really keeps me committed to a healthy lifestyle. What I find incredibly helpful is to make sure that I have plenty of snacks at home. when I am feeling the urge of desperate hunger or I am feeling emotional and go to food, if I dont have healthy items available quickly then I turn to junk.
I make a point of having prepared snacks (pre-cut veggies, pita and hummus, fresh fruit) and also prepackaged snack size food available in a moment's notice.
Some of my favorites: trader joe's semi-sweet mini chocolate bars, 100 calorie snack packs, a handful of almonds, the cutest little ice cream dish that forces me to serve myself a small but satisfying portion, and fresh red peppers sliced the day I bring them home!
