Russet Apple & Elderflower Ice Lollies - NEW

Here’s a new and refreshingly different ice lolly from the Tesco Finest range. Russet Apple & Elderflower Ice Lollies are 'made with the juice of hand picked, pressed British Russet apples and wild elderflower extract.’
Each lolly contains the juice of one apple.

These ice lollies are ideal to eat on a hot day, but equally as good as an after dinner treat. With only 70 calories per lolly, they can easily be included as part of a calorie controlled diet.

They taste like frozen apple juice, which in fact, they mostly are. Russet Apple juice accounts for 86% of the ingredients.

These delicious apple flavoured ice lollies make a welcome addition to the array of orange or berry flavoured ice lollies which are usually found in supermarket freezers.

Boxes of Tesco Finest 4 Russet Apple & Elderflower Ice Lollies can be found in branches of Tesco and Tesco online.

Nutrition Information Per 73ml Ice Lolly: 70 calories, 0.5g protein, 15.5g carbohydrates, 15.5g sugars, 0.2g fat, trace saturates, 0.4g fibre, trace salt. Suitable for vegetarians.

Reduced Fat Soya & Potato Snacks by Sainsbury’s

Having a cupboard full of ready to eat snacks which aren’t high in calories, can make all the difference between losing or gaining weight. And if you aim to keep all your snacks to around the 100 calorie mark, achieving your weight goals should be even easier.

But finding these snacks is often easier said than done. Becoming familiar with which brands have lower calorie foods can help.

Light at Heart Sugar and Stevia Blend NEW

Light at Heart’ is a combination of granulated sugar and Stevia – a natural sweetener. It’s twice as sweet as sugar so you only use half the amount. This means 50 percent fewer calories.
White sugar + Stevia Blend

A teaspoon of granulated sugar has 16 calories, so swapping to Light at Heart means you only use half a teaspoon to get the same sweetness and just 8 calories.

Light at Heart Sugar & Stevia Blend is available in a white sugar blend and brown sugar blend in handy 450g flip top cartons. It’s natural and free from artificial ingredients and can be used in the same way as regular sugar, ie in hot drinks, baking or sprinkling – just use half the amount.

Light at Heart Brown Sugar & Stevia Blend
Because this is essentially sugar which is twice as sweet, it's easy to forget to use half the amount. But apart from that, you'd be hard pushed to tell it apart from plain sugar.  It’s also a good idea to remind other members of the household that it’s twice as sweet to avoid using up too much.
Brown Sugar + Stevia Blend

Light at Heart Sugar & Stevia Blend by Tate & Lyle is available in most larger supermarkets.

Nutrition Information: Per 2g serving (half a teaspoon): 8 calories, 0g protein, 2g carbohydrate, 26 sugars, 0g fat, 0g fibre, 0mg sodium.

Ingredients: Sugar, Sweetener Steviol Glycosides, Natural Flavouring.

Mikado Daim - 11 calories per stick

If you’re watching your weight and haven’t yet discovered Mikado, you’re missing out on a treat. Mikado sticks, made by Kraft Foods, are thin, crunchy biscuit sticks, covered with a layer of chocolate. What’s so good for slimmers is that each Mikado has just 11 calories.

Mikado come in a variety of flavours, some of which you can see in this post. And here’s a new one, called Mikado Daim.

Peppa Pig Ice Cream Lollies - NEW

We’re all fans of Peppa Pig in my household, even those of us who should have long outgrown such childish TV viewing habits. But there’s something so endearing about this happy little family who live on top of a pointy hill, that it's hard not to notice Peppa branded products.

So when I saw these Peppa Pig Ice Cream Lollies in the supermarket, I couldn’t resist buying them (although having just 61 calories each was a big factor).

Peppa Pig Ice Cream Lollies are shaped like Peppa Pig, with the ice cream coloured to match Peppa’s pink skin and her red dress. The pale pink is vanilla flavoured ice cream while the dress is strawberry flavoured ice cream.

Peppa Pig Ice Lolly
They are very sweet. The second ingredient listed is sugar, with glucose syrup also included. But there aren’t any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. 

My children were very happy to eat these and as they're not hugely calorific, I'll probably buy them on an occasional basis.

You can find Peppa Pig Ice Cream Lollies in larger supermarkets now and they're packed in a box containing 6 x 32g lollies.

Nutrition Information per 31g lolly: 61 calories, 1g protein, 7.9g carbohydrates, 7.4g sugars, 2.8g fat, 2.3g saturates, 0.2g fibre, 0.03g salt. Suitable for vegetarians.

Galaxy Flutes - NEW

At last, a chocolate bar you can pick up at the checkout without feeling guilty about the calories. Galaxy Flutes, made by Mars, are two crispy light wafers with a smooth, creamy, chocolatey filling dipped in milk chocolate. And if you need further persuasion, each ‘flute’ has only 56 calories.

A 22.5g pack contains two flutes, each of which are 11.25g. Eating both the Flutes in the pack provides 112 calories.

This is really the ideal size for a chocolate snack bar. There’s just enough to satisfy a chocolate craving, but not fill you with excessive amounts of sugar and fat. Eating one Flute bar provides 2.7g of fat (two bars 5.33g).
Galaxy Flutes
Galaxy Flutes are a bit like Milky Way Crispy Rolls, also by Mars, except with a different filling. They’re currently selling as a Limited Edition, but hopefully they will stay around for a lot longer.

Graze Box Review - White Choc & Raspberry Cheesecake, Born in the USA

Graze Box Delivery Dates: 5 April - 13 April 2012

This Graze Box review covers the last two weeks during which time I received two new snacks to try out. With my delivery day coinciding with Good Friday, Graze sent me an email letting me know they’d posted it out a day early, so I should receive it on the Thursday. And like every Graze box so far, it came right on the allotted day.

There were three favourites in here including Apple and Cinnamon Flapjack, Lost Army and Fruit Sangria. And the new snack was called Born in the USA.

Onto Friday the 13th. Again, three previous favourites were here, including Green Olives with Chilli and Garlic, Tom Yum Yum and Fig Roll. New to the selection was White Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake. Mmmm, just typing that makes me hungry.

Buttermilk – It’s Just Like Yogurt!

A few weeks ago my daughter found a recipe for some muffins. One of the ingredients was buttermilk. I must admit that whenever I’ve come across this particular ingredient in the past, I’ve just substituted milk, imagining buttermilk must be something similar.

This time I decided to follow the recipe properly and buy the exact ingredients. Having never bought buttermilk before I had to hunt around for a bit. 

I eventually found this buttermilk in the cream section of Sainsbury’s. Thinking it would be high in fat and calories, I was surprised to see that buttermilk is really quite healthy. In fact, it’s on a par with natural, low fat yogurt. 

Buttermilk (this brand) has just 66 calories per 100ml, with fat, saturated fat and salt all at healthy levels. The same amount of single cream has 195 calories and 19g of fat.

Once I got it home and opened it up, I was in for another surprise. It even looks like yogurt and has the same creamy texture. It doesn’t taste quite the same so I’m not sure I will use it instead of yogurt. However, it can be used in cooking in a variety ways including smoothies and pancakes, and can replace cream in many cases for a lower fat recipe.

A 300ml tub costs a similar amount to the same sized pot of natural yogurt, in this case 72 pence in Sainsbury's.

Nutrition Information: Per 100ml: 66 calories, 6.3g protein, 9.7g carbohydrate, 0.2g fat, 0.1g saturated fat, 0g fibre, 0.22g salt.

Tesco Light Choices Soup in a Mug

Soup is a great way to fill yourself up during the day. It’s particularly helpful if you’re on a diet and tempted to snack on something you shouldn’t. I often find eating a bowl of soup can stave off hunger pangs long enough to see me through to the next meal.

Making a bowl of soup isn't always convenient, especially when you're away from home. However, packet soups can be carried around or taken into your place of work. Then, as a change to making yet another tea or coffee, you can make yourself a mug of soup instead.

Some of my favourites come from Tesco’s Light ChoicesSoup in a Mug’ range which all have less than 60 calories per cup. 

Tesco’s Light Choices Soup in a Mug range are nice and thick with a lots of vegetable pieces or noodles. All you need is boiling water, a mug and a spoon and in less than a minute you have a warm and filling, low calorie snack.

Vegetable Soup Before...
 Varieties in the Tesco Light Choices Soup in a Mug include:
  • Chinese Style Chicken Noodle – 43 calories per mug, 
  • Vegetable – 57 calories per mug, 
  • Carrot and Coriander – 65 calories per mug, 
  • Leek & Potato – 54 calories per mug. 
...Vegetable Soup After
Each box of soup contains 4 packets and you can find them in branches of Tesco and online.

Nutrition Information per sachet (Chinese Style Chicken Noodle): 43 calories, 1.3g protein, 9.2g carbohydrate, 0.9g sugars, 0.1g fat, trace saturates, 0.2g fibre, 1.2g salt. 1 Weight Watches ProPoint.

Dessert Recipe Yogurts from Weight Watchers

Weight Watchers have made some changes to their range of fat-free dessert recipe yogurts. While the four flavours 
remain the same, some of the nutritional information is different and the calories are a tiny bit higher. 

The Weight Watchers Dessert recipe yogurts are available in the following varieties: Strawberry Tart, Raspberry Tart, Lemon Tart and Toffee Apple. You get one of each flavour as part of a four pack with each pot holding 120g. 

All pots are worth 1 Weight Watchers ProPoint and the calories are as follows: Strawberry Tart: 58 calories; Raspberry Tart: 59 calories; Lemon Tart: 61 calories; Toffee Apple: 61 calories.

These thick and creamy dessert yogurts really do taste like their names. They all have bits of crushed biscuit mixed with the fruit which makes them taste just like the sort of shortcrust pasty you'd get in a real pastry tart.  
Raspberry Tart Yogurt
Due to the presence of gelatine in the ingredients, these yogurts aren’t suitable for vegetarians.

Nutrition information per Strawberry Tart pot (120g): 58 calories, 5.0g protein, 8.0g carbohydrate, 7.6g sugars, 0.1g fat, <0.1g saturates, 0.2g fibre, 0.2g salt.

Made by Yoplait for Weight Watchers.

Popping Candy Lollies, Tesco NEW

You know summer must be approaching when the supermarkets start stocking their freezers with lots of new ice lollies and ice creams.

Tesco have brought out quite a few original offerings so far this year. And, here is one of them called 'Popping Candy Lollies'.

I wouldn’t have bought these for myself, but thought they'd probably go down well with the kids. So, although I knew they were likely to be full ‘o sugar, I went and bought them since they only had 75 calories each.

Irish Yogurts 'Berries' Selection - NEW

If you’ve already discovered the delicious selection of Irish Diet Yogurts (see post), you may be interested to know there is a new diet ‘Berries’ variety.

Packs of four contain one each of Strawberry, Blackberry, Raspberry and Blueberry flavour yogurts. Irish Diet Yogurts are virtually fat free and have no added sugar.

Irish Yogurts are traditionally made in the churn …for that extra creamy taste.

Irish Yogurts Strawberry Yogurt

They’re full of healthy probiotics which can help aid digestion, and because they’re low in calories, can also help with weight loss as part of a calorie controlled diet.

Still as rich, creamy and non-diet like as the original fruity Irish Diet yogurts, this Berry selection is ideal for the summer months.

They're not stingy with the fruit either, so you'll find plenty of fruity pieces throughout each flavour. Yogurt pots hold 125g and all varieties have an average of 65 calories.
The Irish Yogurts 'Berries' Selection

You can find Irish Yogurts Diet Berries in larger supermarkets.

Nutrition Information: Per 100g Blueberry Variety: 50 calories, 4.6g protein, 7.1g carbohydrate, 4.3g sugars, 0.3g fat, 0.8g fibre, 0.18g salt, calcium 171mg.

Irish Diet yogurts are suitable for vegetarians, gluten free and GM free.

Easy White Chocolate Mousse

This is a recipe which was once featured in a Slimming World Magazine. It’s quick and easy to make and has few ingredients. Best of all, this pretty dessert looks impressive and is low in calories.

The following ingredients are enough to serve four people and it takes around 10-15 minutes to put the recipe together.

Because it's quite rich and filling, I generally use half the quantity of the original recipe. Doing this brings the calorie count down to just 72 calories per bowl.

Italian Mediterranean Vegetable Sauce, Sainsbury’s

Pasta sauces, especially the rich, creamy ones made with cheese, are a calorific nightmare. If you’re watching your weight, it’s best to steer well clear of these pasta sauces and choose those which are coloured red. This usually means they’re made with a tomato sauce base
which dramatically lowers the calories and fat content.

For example, Sainsbury’s Italian Mediterranean Vegetable sauce has just 85 calories and 4.4g of fat per half pot. Compare this with Sainsbury’s Carbonara Sauce which has 231 calories and 17.3g of fat per half pot.

Bupa’s 'Helping You Find Healthy' Tools and Apps

These days, if we have a health concern, many of us are inclined to head to the computer for a spot of self diagnosis before visiting the doctor.

But with so much information out there, it can take hours of searching for helpful and reliable advice, especially when you have more than one health concern.

To help save you time surfing around trying to find sites dealing with different health issues, Bupa, the British private healthcare organisation, have developed an extensive range of free, easy to use online tools and apps which are all in one place.  

Waitrose LOVE Life you count... Reduced Fat Crisps

Waitrose LOVE Life you count… food includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacking options. Everything within this range contains lower fat versions and calorie controlled portions of the standard Waitrose meals and snacks.

By swapping your regular Waitrose brands to the you count…variety, you should be able to save around 500 calories. 

Over in the packet snacks section are these reduced fat LOVE Life you count… crisps.  

They're available in multi-packs with each pack holding 6 x 25g. 

Inside are three different flavours (two packs of each) which includes: Lightly Salted - 118 calories, Salt & Vinegar - 115 calories and Cheese and Onion - 116 calories. They all typically have 30% less fat than standard Waitrose crisps.

It’s easy to spot the Waitrose LOVE life you count… range as the calories are displayed clearly in a large font on the front of the pack.

Found in Waitrose stores.

Nutrition Information per 25g pack Cheese and Onion: 116 calories, 1.7g protein, 15.1g carbohydrates, 0.8g sugars, 5.2g fat, 0.5g saturates, 1.0g fibre, 0.38g salt. Suitable for Vegetarians.

Kellogg's All Bran Golden Crunch Review

I’m a great believer in the power of fibre. In fact, the F-Plan diet was probably the first proper diet I ever tried.

This high fibre diet plan is all about filling yourself up with loads of fibre while eating fewer calories. Because fibre acts like a sponge and absorbs water, it helps fill you up more which is just what you want when you're dieting. Plus it’s harder to chew so takes longer to eat and digest.
Kellogg’s All Bran featured in that diet and I’ve been buying the stuff ever since. So when Kellogg’s brought out their new All Bran Golden Crunch cereal I had to check it out. Like All Bran, it contains natural wheat bran and is high in fibre.

Mini Milk Chocolate Butter Biscuits - NEW

A little bit of what you enjoy is good for the soul, and who doesn’t like a chocolate biscuit? But if you’re on a diet, choccy biscuits are probably off the menu.

But here’s a chocolate biscuit you can enjoy without the slightest trace of guilt. With just 10 calories per biscuit, Sainsbury’s Mini Milk Chocolate Butter Biscuits can easily be included in most calorie counted diets.

OK, so they are tiny. Each 110g bag holds 55 mini crunchy biscuits with each one measuring 3cm x 2cm (1.25” x 0.5”).

The pack isn’t resealable, so it’s probably a good idea to arm yourself with one of those food clips when you open them. This helps keep them fresh and might just slow down the temptation to keep on dipping your hand in the packet.

These very buttery, crisp and totally delicious mini chocolate butter biscuits are available in Sainsbury’s supermarkets.

Nutrition Information per biscuit: 10 calories, 0.4g fat, 0.2g saturates, 0.7g sugars, trace salt. Suitable for vegetarians.

Outline of the F-Plan Diet

Back in the early ‘80’s, fibre became a new buzz word thanks to the success of a revolutionary diet called the F-Plan.

The F-Plan Diet book, written by Audrey Eyton, British founder of ‘Slimming Magazine’, became an international best seller. For those who had tried and failed with other diets, the F-Plan promised something different – how to lose weight without going hungry.

Despite being the complete antithesis to modern diets such as The Atkins and Dukan, the principles of the F-Plan Diet form the basis of many modern dieting plans.

Sugar Substitutes and Sweeteners Using Stevia

Sugar gets a lot of bad press lately. Along with ‘fat’, sugar is often blamed as one of the contributing causes of the obesity epidemic. Whether or not this is true, the fact remains that sugar is found in much of the processed food we buy today, hidden in everything from cereals and ready meals to sauces and crisps.

There might be little we can do to prevent how much sugar manufacturers add to their products. However, we can control how much refined sugar we use in everyday life. This is the white (or brown) granulated sugar we sprinkle onto our food or add to hot drinks and recipes.

Graze Box Review - Honeycomb Crunch, Shangri'la

Graze Box Delivery Date: 30 March 2012

There were no new snack punnets in my Graze box last week. But I’m not complaining. Everything in there has been tried before and all were rated LIKE or LOVE which means we're more than happy to get them again.

Just for the record, last week’s delivery included: Fruit and Seed Flapjack (week 3) which is probably everyone’s favourite snack in my household; The Herb Garden (week 7) – tasty low calorie rice crackers; Bounty Hunter (week 2) – a mix of coconut flakes, dried cranberries and milk chocolate drops and the fourth snack was Fig and Cherry Fruit Bake (week 9).

Onto the latest delivery and this week I received two new snacks in the Graze box. Not only are they new to me, they’re completely new to the Graze range.

Weight Watchers Salt and Vinegar Flavour Hoops

Weight Watchers have a wide range of reduced fat savoury snacks which are all calorie counted and labelled with Weight Watcher new ProPoints values. 

Among the multipack varieties are Salt and Vinegar Flavour Hoops which have at least 30% less fat than standard salt and vinegar flavour hoops.

These crunchy potato hoops have been ‘baked not fried’, have no artificial flavourings, colours, MSG or preservatives.

Multipacks contain five 20g bags, with each bag worth 77 calories and 2 ProPoints
You can find Weight Watchers Salt and Vinegar Flavour Hoops in supermarkets and Poundland.

Nutrition Information: Per 20g pack: 77 calories, 0.7g protein, 16.6g carbohydrate, 0.5g sugars, 0.7g fat, 0.1g saturates, 0.6g fibre, 0.4g salt. 2 ProPoints. Suitable for vegetarians. Low sugar, medium fat and high salt. (See nutrition guidelines)

Leerdammer Lightlife Reduced Fat Cheese Slices

I love cheese, especially those continental style cheeses with holes in. While travelling around Europe some years ago, I rarely went a day without consuming at least one slice of Emmental, Jarlsberg or Leerdammer.

These cheeses might be full of holes, but since they're hard cheeses, they're still high in fat and calories. If you love cheese but want to lower your fat consumption or calories, reduced fat cheeses generally have around 30% less fat than the original.

Stonebaked Seeded Baguette - Sainsbury's

The traditional French style baguette is best enjoyed fresh out of the oven. But, unless you live in France, it’s not always that easy finding a freshly baked baguette when you want one.

Nowadays though, thanks to the invention of ‘part-baked’ bread, we can appreciate just why the French love their baguettes so much.

Chicken & Mushroom Risotto, Sainsbury’s

Risotto is a popular rice dish that’s fairly easy to make yourself. It does require constant attention to get it just right, so sometimes it’s more convenient to buy a ready-made version.

There are plenty to choose from in the supermarkets, however, risotto isn't usually very diet friendly.

Saturday, 7 April 2012

Sakata Japanese Rice Crackers

While living in Australia and New Zealand several years ago, I used to snack on Japanese Rice crackers. They were great.  Not only were they available in lots of tasty flavours with different brands to choose from, these crackers had around 6 - 10 calories each.

However, back in the UK, all that seemed to be available were rice cakes, which aren’t the same thing at all. I gave up searching in the end.

Then a few weeks ago, I decided to try again and found some in Waitrose. These rice crackers are called Sakata - 'tasty usu-yaki rice crackers …born in Sakata, Japan.'

They’re available in four flavours: Original, Classic Cheddar, Sour Cream and Chives and Sizzling Barbeque. I bought the Sour Cream and Chives and they’re were just as I remembered them. Light and crispy with lots of seasoning. And best of all, each cracker has just 8 calories.

Packets contain four rows of 13 rice crackers and you can eat an entire row for 105 calories. Sakata rice crackers are oven baked, gluten free, suitable for vegetarians and low in saturated fat.

You can find them in the ‘Free from’ aisle in Waitrose as well as Ocado online. And some Sainsbury's stores stock them in the ‘savoury biscuits’ aisle.

Nutrition Information: per 25g (1 row of crackers): 103 calories, 1.8g protein, 20g carbohydrates, 0.8g sugars, 1.8g fat, 0.2g saturates, 0.2g fibre, 0.39g salt.

Warburtons Raisin Loaf with Cinnamon

You don’t have to wait until Easter to enjoy the delicious taste of hot cross buns. Warburtons Raisin Loaf with Cinnamon tastes just like a spicy hot cross bun, only it’s sliced like a loaf of bread. And it's available all year round.

Warburtons Raisin Loaf has the perfect balance of raisins and cinnamon to create that delicious hot cross bun taste.

Each raisin loaf is 400g with one slice providing just under 100 calories.

It’s delicious eaten straight from the pack while still soft and fresh, but toasting it somehow brings out an even richer flavour. And of course, no piece of toast would be complete without spreading it with butter. But to keep the calories down, it only needs a thin scraping of reduced fat butter as the raisins prevent it from being too dry.

Warburtons Raisin Loaf with Cinnamon is suitable for vegetarians and it's freezable.

You can find it in a wide selection of food stores and supermarkets.

Nutrition Information per 35.8g slice: 98 calories, 2.6g protein, 18.3g carbohydrates, 8.7g sugars, 1.3g fat, 0.4g saturates, 1.1g fibre, 0.30g salt. Suitable for vegetarians.

Weight Watchers PROPOINTS® Plan Calculator – Updated For 2012

The Weight Watchers ProPoints Calculator is enormously popular and has received rave reviews by its users. If you’re following the Weight Watchers ProPoints plan, this little calculator is indispensable.

The new updated ProPoints calculator is basically the same as the 2010 version. However, the 2012 version has had its minimum daily ProPoints allowance reduced from 29 ProPoints to 26 ProPoints.

Like the 2010 ProPoints Calculator, it’s personalised and quick and simple to set up.

Here’s what it can do:
  • Calculate the ProPoints values of pre-packaged foods
  • Calculate your daily ProPoints allowance 
  • Track your daily and weekly ProPoints allowance over 7 days 
  • Keep track on Filling & Healthy days. 
This tiny, lightweight calculator is easy to carry around with you so you can keep track of your points throughout the day. Its measurements are 9cm x 3cm x 9cm (3.5" x 1.25" x 3.5") and it weighs 95g (boxed).

You can buy the ProPoints 2012 Calculator from Amazon, but they do sell out fast!

Alternatively you can buy them directly from Weight Watchers. If you attend Weight Watchers meetings, you may also be able to purchase one there.

Activia Fat Free Banoffee and Crumble Snackpots

Activia have recently introduced two new ‘Limited Edition’ fat free yogurts. These are part of the 0% Snackpot range and are packed into individual 155g pots rather than 165g like the other Snackpots.

The two varieties are: Activia Banoffee Snackpot – a creamy, fat free yogurt with banana, toffee and biscuit pieces; and Activia Berry and Apple Crumble - a creamy yogurt mixed with red berries and apple pieces.

These yogurts are quite thick and creamy and taste uncannily like their respective names, ie banoffee pie and crumble. They're almost more of a dessert than a yogurt.

Beware though. These yogurts may be 0% fat, but they have a lot of sugar. The Banoffee yogurts have 18.8g per pot which is just over 4 teaspoons! Some of this comes from the toffee pieces, biscuit and banana though.

Despite the sugar content, the calories aren’t too bad for a 155g sized pot with the Banoffee Snackpot containing 116 calories and the Crumble Snackpot 100 calories. And of course, if you’re trying to keep your fat intake down, then you can’t get much lower than these with just 0.2g per pot.
Activia Berry and Apple Crumble

Activia’s Limited Edition snackpots are available in stores including Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury’s. Since they’re a limited edition, they may not be around long.

Nutrition Information per Banoffee Snackpot (155g): 116 calories, 7.8g protein, 20.6g carbohydrate, 18.8g sugars, 0.2g fat, trace saturates, 0.5g fibre, 0.4g salt.
