I generally avoid everything with artificial stuff in it because fake sugar scares me… but the one “diet” food that I do eat all the time is Edy’s Slow Churned ice cream… it is BETTER than full fat imo. (I think its called Dreyer’s on the west coast”

@CorgiTales: I agree with you. I usually avoid anything sugar free/lower cal/low fat because in return you are eating a lot of chemicals. I prefer to give myself the real thing as a treat once in a while. BUT I love me some cheeze-its so I’ll sneak a box of reduced-fat ones on occasion 😉

I think that most of weight watcher’s food is really really good.  I particularly like all of their ice cream products.  I also love their frozen vegetarian lasagna.  I used to actually buy it as a special treat meal back in the day.

Also, one of our favorite treats is Ciao Bella gelato.  The ice flavors are lower in calorie and fat.  I love their blackbery cabernet flavor and my fiance is a big fan of their blood orange flavor.  We got it at Safeway, so I am sure other grocery store chains carry it too.

I second Skinny Cow.  Yum!

@ladygoodman- that gelato sounds incredible! i’m going to look for that next time i go grocery shopping. Is it “low cal” or is it just a naturally low cal food?

I def agree with both the chemical comment and the slow churned ice cream (ick, yum respectfully). I tend to eat small portions of full fat items, hits the spot AND fills.

Since it’s sorbet it’s generally a little lower in cals than ice cream and since Ciao Bella’s sorbet has such rich flavor, I generally eat less than I do with ice cream.

The blackberry cabernet has 140 calories & 0 grams of fat in 1/2 cup, which is about 3 weight watchers points.  The blood orange has 100 calories and 0 grams of fat, which is 2 WW points.

It’s pretty comparable to other sorbets, but I think it’s a great special treat if you’re dieting.

@Amani– I second Laughing Cow spread. 

@Corgitales — Me too. I’m hoping more companies will switch to the new sugar made from the stevia plant (Truvia, and there’s one other one).  We use fresh stevia at my house to sweeten tea and it works amazing!

I’m hoping for diet coke w/ stevia to appear soon.
