Ice Cream Without The Guilt

Oh, the simple joys of summer. A day spent laying on the beach. A swim in the pool. A walk at dusk. An ice cream cone. Everything seems so much easier and so much more joyful in the summer …
But if you want your waistline to be joyful, then you’d better be mindful of what […]

Come On Over, Cupcake!

A few weeks ago, the local supermarket put boxes of Pillsbury cake mix on sale, enticing shoppers with a price so low that even I, a girl with an avowed distaste for cakes from a box, couldn’t resist. I snapped up three boxes.
Two disappointing cupcake recipes later, I was ready to go in an entirely […]

New Philly Cream Cheese Flavors - Tasty and Healthy Snack Ideas

I struggle with snacks. As it turns out, I often don’t eat enough, particularly if I’ve worked out that day. This has actually been hindering my weight loss efforts. Snacks (small healthy ones) need to be a part of my routine. So I was pretty excited to be able to try out some new flavors […]

Nogurt Does Yogurt, Free-From-Style

If I had to pick the biggest dairy-free food buzz for 2008, it would be yogurt.  That tummy taming food was in the media more times last year than Paris Hilton, and milk-free manufacturers have been working hard to come out with options for those who are milk allergic, lactose challenged, or otherwise adverse to […]

Review: Weight Watchers English Muffin Sandwich

Recently I had the chance to try Weight Watchers English Muffin Sandwich. This one clocks in at 4 Weight Watchers points and 210 calories, but what about the taste?

Review: Weight Watchers Breakfast Quesadilla
