Tasty Tuesday: WW Food Finds

Every week at my WW meetings we do food finds.
Basically if you've found or tried something new in the past week, bring it in and share it!
It's one of my favorite parts because I've found so many new things!
So instead of posting a recipe this week, I thought I'd share some of my favorite finds with you.
Because let's be honest, as a full time working mom I need a little convenience in my life from time to time!

Kashi Pesto Pizza

I'm big supporter of the Kashi Brand.  Love their waffles and cereals, so it's no surprise this pizza did not disappoint.
Plus at only 9 points for half the pizza (4 slices) it's super filling and makes great leftovers for lunch the next day!  There are several other flavors, this is the only one I've tried.

When I first heard of this powdered peanut butter I kind of turned my nose up at it.  Then I realized how many freaking points my favorite food has and thought I'd give it a whirl.  So far I've only used it in my WW chocolate shakes....but it's delicious.  Like a guilt free peanut buttery chocolate slice of heaven and only 1 point for TWO tablespoons!

Amy's Cheese and Bean Burrittos
Need an easy lunch or quick dinner?  These are awesome and only 8 points.

Barber Foods Chicken Cordon Bleu
I can be a little funny about frozen, processed meat, but this chicken actually comes frozen raw so I thought it might be ok.  It was delicious!  And super easy to cook after a long day.

Vita Tops
I'm always looking for something quick and easy to grab in the morning for breakfast that isn't a million points.  At just 3 points each, Vita tops fit the bill perfectly.  I've had both the double chocolate chip and banana nut, both were delicious.  And since they have a decent about of protein and fiber they keep me full all morning.

Jimmy Dean De-Lites
Another good breakfast find.  Higher in points at 7 per sandwich, but when the craving for an egg mcmuffin hits, this satisfies it.  Plus its great for on the go!

Archer Farms Fruit Strips
When my sweet tooth strikes, these hit the spot.  And at only 1 point they're a real bargain at that!

So there you have it.  A few of my faves.
Now spill yours!

We have similar taste. I love Amy's burritos, vitamuffins and the turkey sausage sandwiches. Yum! Have you tried Luna Smore Bars or KIND coconut almond bars, so good!

You rock for compiling this, and with photos even! Thanks for it ... I can't ever keep up at the meetings and need to start bringing a full-on notebook for all the great ideas that are shared! You are an inspiration!

Those fruit strips are a regular in my house :)

I love vita tops. They are so expensive though...do you ever find them cheap anywhere?

Thanks for posting this! I am always on the lookout for filling (but not so fattening) foods for my husband. He can eat like a horse, which is fine if he's eating good things & not junk food! Where do you do your grocery shopping? I haven't seen many of those brands in my local store, but I haven't really been looking either!
