Cold Weather Munchies

Hello all!!  I've been MIA for a few days, I apologize, I got that nasty stomach bug that's going around and it had me down for a few days!  But I'm back and ready to update on what I've been doing the past few COLD days to shut up that awful hungry monster!! If you're anything like me, when it gets cold it seems like my internal "hungry monster" goes into overtime!!!

Here are a few things I've been eating and snacking on to keep that little guy happy AND still healthy!!

If you're a fan of guacamole like me, these things are the best invention EVER!  They're separate little packs of guacamole and they're only 100 calories!  I haven't figured up the WW's points on them...but I would imagine they're around 2-3 points and to me, worth every point!!!

These chips are SO good...I like to eat them w/ the 100 calorie guacamole packs or w/ a turkey sandwich!
Total WW's pts: 3

For those times you just really need something to satisfy that sweet tooth this snack is divine!!  I pour the jello into a bowl and top with a spoon full (or two) of the Fat Free Cool Whip.  You'll want to lick the bowl!
Total WW's pts: 2


Tonight for dinner I really wanted something with chili but chili is so fattening!!  I stopped by Brookshires on my way home and to my surprise Wolf Brand makes a turkey chili that is very low in fat!  I also found 98% FF hot dog wieners that come out to only 1 point on WW's.  I'm anxious to see how it all tastes!
Turkey Chili - 4 WW's pts.
2% Mexican Cheese (1/4 c) - 2 WW's pts.
98% FF Wieners - 1 WW pt.
Hot Dog Bun - 3 WW's pts.
TOTAL WW's Pts: 10
Note:  Skip the cheese and/or bun to reduce points.

**All points are based on the new Weight Watchers Points Plus System.

I hope that everyone is staying nice and warm!!

Enjoy...The Curvy Life!

Ok, you have to tell me how the Turkey chili tastes. I love Wolf brand, however gross that may sound, so this would be a great alternative! Just so we are clear, I have had an entire jar of Nutella today. So, I guess the diet starts tomorrow!
