    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

        1) Large saucepan, combine meat, barley, water; bring to boil. Skim off foam, then add carrots, onion, celery, salt, fennel seeds, pepper; bring back to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 45 minutes
        2) Stir in lima beans and mushrooms; cook covered until meat tender - about 15 minutes.

        Serving: 1/4 cup
        Per serving: 5 points
        Are you sure that's 1/4 of a cup for 5 points 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.

                Wow!  I know they have a new system of points now, but I hope these still count, they sound great!

                      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?
