    I have a few of my own and I know everyone else does so everyone should add a few! I ate grilled chicken almost everyday for a year. I cannot.. take it anymore! Recipes PLEASE.

    Here's how I diet-ized some of my favorite meals.

    I love mashed potato's. I cannot eat chicken without them. So what I do is I don't add ANY butter what so ever to the instant mix, and substitute most of the milk with water. You still add some milk 2% and just not as much as the box says. It tastes normal to me.

    I recently just did this, last week. Lean beef hamburgers, fat free (or was it low fat? I can't remember) american cheese and I found these diet fries that are done in olive oil and sea salt. Forgot if that was the oil also, but it's the healthy one. But for some reason I think it said olive.

    I couldn't find the lite buns so I had to eat a regular one. But all in all you definitely cut down on the fat and calories!

    A friend told me how to make chicken cutlettes. Use egg beaters and yes, bread crumbs. Spray pam in the frying pan and add a little bit of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. Voila. Chicken without the extra fat of frying it in oil.

    And one STRANGE, STRANGE thing that I do is try to concoct my own slushies/shakes. One of my favorites (Not everyone will like this) is taking:

    1 bar of sugar free real strawberry ice pop
    1 can of diet sierra mist or 7up. SM works better.
    1 Tsp or Tbp of Lite Cool Whip, depends on whether you're scared or not to use the cool whip.
    And as much ice as you want.

    One time I added a regular raspberry popsicle to that. I have funky tastes so I don't know if anyone else will actually like that. :)

    IheartMickey,

    If you have a Wegman's near you, they have lite hamburger and hot dog rolls, bread, and lite english muffins.

    Water mashed potatoes doesn't sound very appetizing to me at all.:eek: You might want to try using some canned, fat free chicken broth to spice it up a bit.

    My daughter makes "mashed potatoes" by pureeing steamed cauliflower in the food processor! She swears they're delicious. I haven't tried them -- I'd rather have my cauliflower raw.

    No seriously! They taste no different. My whole family eats them like that and my mom never told them. I have a funny feeling she put in I Can't Believe It's Not Butter last night because her boyfriend was here for dinner. They were yellowy. GRR.

    I've never had calliflower. Hm.
