Weight Loss Wednesday - Great Go-Together's

Welcome to Pink Lemonade's Weight Loss Wednesday!

Do you ever find yourself in this situation...
It's almost breakfast/ snack/ lunch time and you're either really busy, or in a hurry and don't have time to fix something complicated, but you still want to stick to your eating plan.... What to do?

Try some of these quick go-togethers - all courtesy of Hungry

The Laughing Cow Light Cheese Wedge + Quaker Quakes Rice Snacks

(95 - 105 calories, 2 - 4.5g fat, 305 - 490mg sodium, 12 - 16g carbs, 0g fiber, 1 - 5g sugars, 3.5g protein = 2 Points)

With 9 flavors of Quakes and 3 tasty choices of light cheese from our giddy cow pal, the possibilities are endless with this steamy duo! Try slathering some Apple Cinnamon Quakes with the Original Swiss or dipping BBQ Quakes into a wedge of Garlic & Herb cheese. Anyway you slice it, this is one creamy crunchy couple - courtesy of Hungry

Smucker's Sugar Free Preserves + Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt

(100 calories, 0g fat, 55mg sodium, 16g carbs, 0g fiber, 6g sugars, 13g protein = 2 Points)

The slightly tart taste of rich and creamy Fage yogurt mixed with super-fruity Smucker's spread makes for a match made in snack heaven! For just a hundred fat-free calories, go ahead and toss two tablespoons of the sweet stuff into a 5.3-oz. container of Fage. It's a treat so good, it'll make your head spin (and possibly even pop right off!). There's not a single Smucker's flavor that doesn't work well here: Apricot, Blueberry, Red Raspberry and more. Yesssss! - courtesy of Hungry

Newman's Own Lighten Up Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing + Mann's Broccoli Cole Slaw

PER SERVING (2 tbsp. dressing + 3 oz. slaw): 60 calories, 1.5g fat, 415mg sodium, 10g carbs, 3g fiber, 6g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 1*

This sweet 'n sassy slaw ROCKS our socks! Just toss a 12-oz. package of the slaw with half a cup of the dressing. Then give the two some alone time in the fridge (the longer this stuff marinates, the better it'll taste!). Help yourself to a heaping portion (1/4th the total amount) and enjoy! And feel free to share the love with some friends. - courtesy of Hungry

Ball Park Smoked White Turkey Franks + Boca Meatless Chili

(1 hot dog & 4.5 oz. chili: 115 cal, 0.5g fat, 17.5 carbs, 6g fiber 16g protein = 2 points)

Who doesn't love a chili dog? With amazingly light and delicious Ballpark Smoked White Turkey Hot Dogs, and Boca Chili, you can indulge in one...guilt free! - courtesy of Hungry

Apple Slices + The Laughing Cow Light Cheese

PER SERVING (1 medium-small apple with 1 cheese wedge): 100 calories, 2g fat, 260mg sodium, 18g carbs, 3g fiber, 14g sugars, 3g protein = POINTS® value 2*

We understand if you're skeptical about the coupling of The Laughing Cow and apple slices. But now they've decided to play the field a bit, and boy are we happy about it. Slathering your apple slices with this soft cheese (in Light Original Swiss, Light Garlic & Herb, or even Light French Onion) is an insanely satisfying way to spend 100calories. - courtesy of Hungry

I'll leave you with a little quote for your refrigerator this week:

"It doesn't matter how many say it cannot be done or how many people have tried it before; it's important to realize that whatever you're doing, it's your first attempt at it"
