If you'd have told me 90 days ago I could enjoy a waffle without butter and syrup I'd have scoffed but I did just that this morning and LOVED it. After making MHs waffles I added cinnamon and raisins to the batter and thought 'give it a TRY at least.' I probably had the same face my daughter has when I try to get her to try sashimi. But it was great! And afterward I didn't have that 'sick' feeling I used to get when I ate waffles. AMAZING .. it's like I'm rediscovering the same foods I have eaten all my life buried beneath unhealthy toppings. This soooooo gives me hope because I know I can't just live on 'limiting foods ' forever - I have to find foods I can eat and ENJOY for the rest of my life while still healthy.

Try Walden Farms syrup, very low calorie and tasty. I get Great Value light syrup, only 100 calories per quarter cup and I don't even really need that much.
Love your food or risk failure. No quick fixes, this is a lifestyle change. No extremes are needed just consistency.

I can vouch for Walden Farms stuff. I'm not crazy about their mayonnaise but the syrups and barbecue sauce are really good.

I say KOODO's to you on NO toppings. I have started to enjoy many foods without toppings..... its a whole new flavor and texture for the foods you have always eaten. I started using salsa on my green salads, and I am 98% positive that I will never go back to dressing. I even bar-b-q without sauces or marinade...LOVE IT ! Good on you...keep it up. =)

Ditto that - It's CRAZY that the salad dressings often total more in calories and fat than the actual salad.

I liked the Salsa too but as my system has changed even the mild seems so hot it overpowers me from tasting the actual salad. Yes, I'm a wimp Smile

Most of the time now I just use lemon juice -or- mix a teaspoon of spicy mustard into 1/3 cup of pickle juice to coat.

I do like the spice though so I'm trying to develop a low cal low fat wasabi type dressing too ~ different type of hot without numbing the tastebuds on my tongue.

Ooh yeah, I like salsa on salad. I also like just using balsamic vinegar (in various flavors). I even have some fruit flavored ones that are nice on waffles. I like Van's and Kashi waffles - plain or with fruit or with balsamic vinegar.
