I was thinking today that it would be great to have a separate thread to share our point finds!<br><br>
I went to Jamba Juice today and while their smoothies are normally low points for a whole meal, they added these "Enlightened Smoothies" made with Splenda and low fat. The sad thing is, after having one today, I've realized that I'm getting headaches from Splenda. Is that possible? I can't find any other connection!<br><br>
Anyway, one 16oz smoothie - and it was yummy! - was only 3 points. It's filling for a meal. Their regular smoothies are pretty low in points, esp when you add a fiber boost and add 5grams of fiber!<br><br>
Then, at Wendy's, their Grilled Chicken sandwich is only 6 points. Not too bad for a burger type sandwich.<br><br>
And, I love Malt-O-Meal for breakfast! The Maple & Brown Sugar MoM, for one serving, is 3 points! YUMMY!<br><br>
I love the PowerBar Pria Bars....they're only 2 points and great when I'm looking for something sweet!<br><br>
Quaker makes these Cracker Jack rice cakes which are 1 point each - the rice cakes taste JUST LIKE Cracker Jack! They also have a Butter Toffee flavor that is 1 point. Good for those late night sweet tooths!

Some of my fav low points snacks (because I like to snack...lol) are:<br><br>
1 cup of frozen blueberries with 1/4 C vanilla soy milk poured on top with 1 package of Splenda......mmmmm mmmmm mmmm (1.5 pts)<br><br>
low point toast with 1 T peanut butter (3.5 pts), this is what I eat almost every morning for breakfast, I have this even when I am not doing WW. Its also a good bedtime snack with a glass of milk.<br><br>
Fruit salad with 2 T lite whip cream (1 cup fruit usually = 1pt)<br><br>
Frozen yogurt sticks and I really like most of the Smart Ones ice creams bars, etc Also the Smart One's Lasagna is darn good and filling!<br><br>
I also love BallPark fat free hotdogs (1 pt) with the 2 pt buns<br><br>
I don't eat much processed foods but those above are some of my favorites <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> If I can think of some of my other fav's I'll add them on.<br><br>

Here's more info about their smoothies - I usually get a small, not the regular, so it works great as far as being filling and 5-6 points, which is a great substitute for a meal. Plus, you add the fiber.....<br><br>
Their Mango a Go-Go, if you get the 16oz, not the Original, is 6 points if you add a fiber boost. Their Original size of the same smoothie is 8 points without a fiber boost (the fiber boost in this size won't make a difference in the points).<br><br>
Their new Enlightened Smoothies are much lower in calories and in fact they have a pamphlet with the WW points!

Well as some already know Applebees and WW are teamed up and Applebees now has a WW menu as part of their regular menu!<br><br>
Today I had the Baja wrap which comes with pinapple wedges and the lemon strawberry cheesecake. My mom had the terryaki shrip skewers and the lemon cheesecake as well.<br><br>
We both loved ours, mine was 10 points for the meal and 5 for the desert (heavenly).. hers was 5 points for the meal and 5 points for the desert. It's so nice to go out to eat somewhere "safe"! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br><br>
Also, I LOVE Skinny Cow's chocolate peanut butter cookie dough ice cream at the grocery store. 2 points for 1 serving and it's delicious, thank you to them for using skim milk!
