New jelly in town

One of the products I use as a dessert in my low-calorie diet is Del Monte’s “Mandarin Oranges in Lite Orange Gel” (or peach). The pack has 4 cups, 128 gr each, for 60 calories each. Today I found a brand new product from Jell-O though, called “Jell-O Fruit Passions” (difficult to find as of yet, I got it at San Mateo’s Draeger’s), which has 60 or 70 calories (depending on the flavor, choose from 4 different flavors) for a full 170 grams. Their cups are huge! Very filling. Price wise Jell-O’s new line is 20% cheaper than Del Monte’s, but the thing is that Del Monte offers 4 small cups while Jell-O 2 bigger ones. Nevertheless, the Jell-O version will definitely replace the Del Monte ones in my diet (even if it requires refrigeration at all times and has smaller expiration date). Jell-O’s version lets me eat 25% more, for the same amount of calories.

My favorite food for low calories and perceived fullness are the Boca products. I like the Boca chili. It is 150 calories for a bowl of chili (one of my favorites). It is very spicy and satisfying. I also like the sausage patties. They are 80 calories each. I also use Morning Star products. They have a breakfast scramble (potatoes, onions, peppers) – half of the bag is only 120 calories. I mix in 1/2 cup of Egg Beaters (60 calories) and 1/2 tblspoon of olive oil (60 calories) for a 240 calorie breakfast that fills my plate. Yum! As you see, I don’t know how to cook (and I’m lazy!), so this works for me. That’s why I was looking forward to a pre-packaged version of some of you meals. They look VERY tasty and combine a good ratio of calories to volume.

Gelatin is gross, IMHO when you find out where it comes from.


This is the admin speaking...

I don’t find gelatin gross, and I do know where it comes from. :)
