A regular serving of oatmeal is small and sad. Lucky for you, my oatmeal bowl is TRIPLE the size and a calorie bargain!



Supermarket Survival Guide (Tips & Picks)!


Light Bread - Look for bread that has about 45 calories and 2g fiber per slice -- for basic toast, French toast, and breakfast sandwiches. And while you're in the bread aisle, pick up some light hot dog buns for making Cannoli-Stuffed French Toast Nuggets! Sara Lee has great options for both.

Fat-Free Liquid Egg Substitute - I love Egg Beaters Original -- made from real egg whites and just 30 fat-free calories per 1/4-cup serving. Perfect for scrambles, egg mugs, omelettes, frittatas, and more!

Cheese - Fat-free cheese slices or shreds are a smart and tasty addition to any egg dish. I'm also a huge fan of Laughing Cow Light cheese wedges -- as a cream cheese swap and in recipes. And don't forget to buy fat-free cottage cheese and fat-free ricotta cheese... Any brand will do!

Hot Stuff - Keep some frozen low-fat waffles in the house -- look for kinds with about 150 calories for a serving of two. They're great topped with low-sugar or sugar-free preserves (like the kinds by Smucker's and Polaner) and some light whipped butter or light buttery spread (Brummel & Brown is the best!). For a side dish, heat up some turkey or veggie sausage with about 80 calories, like the kind by Morningstar Farms.
Cereal Essentials - Old-fashioned oats are perfect for my large oatmeal bowls. When it comes to milk, I'm obsessed with Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze (just 40 calories for a whole cup!). I'm also careful about my cold cereal. Unsweetened puffed grains give you great bang for your calorie buck (about 2 cups for 100 calories), but I also like to mix and match cereals -- Fiber One Original adds a lot of crunch (and of course, FIBER) for not a lot of calories!

On-the-Go Must-Haves
- Whole fruits (Fuji apples, bananas, oranges, and more!) and fat-free yogurt are essential. My yogurt picks are Yoplait Light and Fiber One. (Yup, F1 makes yogurt, and it's GREAT!)
