Ohhhh… look at these – my NEW favorite mindless snack. 

You get 22 sticks for 3 points+. And, to add to their deliciousiness, they are only $1.49 a bag at Trader Joe’s!

(Thanks Eyeball for this bag!!!! XOXOXOXO)

Portion Patrol : Chicken & Broccoli (7 Points +)

Share via email

I decided to take out my measuring cup this weekend & actually measured what 1 cup of Chicken & Broccoli looks like… And it was WAY more than I would usually eat!

Note to Self : Buy a set of measuring cups to keep in my pocketbook… just kidding!! (mostly, I could probably hide a 1/2 cup scoop in there….)

McDonald's Medium & the "new" Kiddie Size

I will say I was happily suprised when I pulled up to McDonald’s yesterday…. They have changed their Happy Meal & now serve it with apples & a smaller serving of fries.

This size calculated out to 2 points + but be advised there was like 15 fries in there.  Great for the kids, but I was definitely wanting more.

Portion Patrol : 5 Points + for Blue Bunny Super Chunky Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Share via email

Ahhhh…. I decided tonight called for ice cream.  (And this ice cream was even MORE delicious because I got it really cheap!!!!)

As I got out my big ice cream bowl, I got to thinking – what is the portion size? Um… 1/2 a cup.  Really disappointing!  So, I put the scoop in my son’s baby bowl & enjoyed it slowly… very slowly.

Ok, so this is not a fantastic picture, but I cannot redo it (I ate the cookies…..)

So, to illustrate –  it is about half a point  an inch…. I could gobble  up 15 of these before I started to feel satisfied… (Sadly, it has happened…)

Note to self : Just Say No
