Here are some snack recipes. I haven't tried these so I can't testify to their taste - but they are worth a shot. I'm going to post them in separate posts so I don't get logged out.

 

Hummus:

1 (15 oz) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1/2 c plain fat-free yogurt

2 tbsp lemon juice

3 garlic cloves, crushed

2 tsp olive oil

1 tbsp water

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/8 tsp pepper

 

Blend all in food processor.

Serving: 1/4 cup.

Points per serving: 2 points

Are you sure that's 1/4 of a cup for 5 pointshuh.gif So 20 points for a cup? That seems really high??

That's what I though too - but all the soups in the book have a 1/4 cup serving size. I put the calories into the point counter on Janet's WW excel spreadsheet and it said 3.6 points for the 1/4 cup. Still high, but not as bad as what the book said. But I have to say this is really hearty stuff - I probably couldn't eat a whole cup.

those cheese straws sound amazing.  Does anyone know if they're still 2 points or if the points value has changed with the new program?
