Aldi's Fit and Active

Aldi has a Fit and Active product line which caters to low- cal low fat foods.

My husband and I are once again counting calories as a way of life.

With the $30 purchase shown above : here is a list of healthy meals we hope to enjoy.

Meal 1: Chicken Breast with Peppers -- recipe here We plan to use fresh peppers and limit the cheese. Dessert: thawed berries with Agave nectar or splenda packet for sweetening.

total : 300 calories.

Meal 2: Chicken Deli Slices on lo-cal wheat bread(40 cal per slice), 6 green olives, 9 cheese crisps and 60 calories of toppings for sandwich ( mayo, mustard, cheese, etc)

total: 300 calories

Snack or Breakfast: 110 calorie yogurt in Cherries Jubilee flavor.

Meal 3: Squash and Zucchini frittata -Use Egg whites or egg substitue-!! : idea recipe here
Side of canned Ruby red grapefruit slices (60 cal.) and chocolate cookie for dessert (60 cal).--

total: 300 or less.

I love to enjoy a bag of popcorn while watching Tv or reading at night.
We also enjoy 50 cal. string cheese to fight afternoon hungers.

can you share you favorite low calorie foods or snack items?

Just dropping in to say hi from SITS. You were two comments above me today. For dessert I like to have a bowl of cut-up fruit. I try to pick the sweet ones like bananas, and red delicious apples, I sprinkle a spoon of organic coconut flakes, a spoon of dried cranberries, maybe a spoon of nuts or sunflower seeds and if I'm really lucky just a teeny drizzle of honey or agave nectar.
