The first one that I'm using is the "Alternative English Muffin" made by Western Bagels. Total Carbohydrates 16g Dietary Fiber 5g Sugars 0g Protein 8g

Another is "calorie Countdown Dairy Drink" made by Hood. I use it instead of milk. It also comes in chocolate with the same carbs, etc.

Calories 90 Calories from Fat 45 Total Fat 5.0g Saturated Fat 3.0g
Cholesterol 20mg Sodium 160mg Total Carbohydrates 3.0g Sugars 3.0g Protein 8.0g

I'm excited about these because milk and bread are two things I love. The muffins help make up the slack and I'll share the bread and jelly I use in another post. The jelly has no carbs or sugar! Anyway, Is there a downside to these two items? Thanks! Also, can I be notified by e0mail when a person responds? God bless!

Thanks James, you know that most of us fall down sometimes especially when it is one of our favorite foods and mine happens to be potato salad, tuna noodle salad I love those but one spoonful of each is all i take. But my biggest downfall is pizza lol. The bread and milk sound great i love chocolate milk.

I know what you're saying, Alan.

My weakness is ice cream. I was being "nice" to myself due to my losing Jem, so I bought some a half gallon of ice cream. I opened it almost as soon as I got it home and ate the whole half gal. by the time I went to bed. After a couple times of doing that I decided not to keep ice cream in the house. I will buy a cone, from time to time, but no more ice cream in the house

Looks good Alan!

Of course you know that portion control is important, even with these alternative foods (that's where I often fall down. )

Blessings to you and yours
