However, I still need to be able to stay on track for my weight loss. I recently browsed over at Cost Plus World Market's site and I was happy to see a wide variety of foods and cooking accessories that fit the bill. Behold:
I grew up in Southern California and have eaten a LOT of Mexican food over the years. Salsa is a great way to add flavor without adding calories. Mango Key Lime sounds like it would be delicious!
I know, I know...I put candy in this list ?!? As part of Weight Watchers, I've learned that no food is off-limits. You just have to control your portions like these mini-sized bags do. They allow me to eat the German Haribo candies that I adore.
Couscous is made from semolina and comes from Northern Africa. I love it as an alternative to rice or pasta as a side dish. Who knew that it came in three colors?
Skip the prepackaged oatmeals that are full of sugar. Make your own and control what goes into it. Maybe this kind will even give you the luck O' the Irish.
5. 10-pc Aqua Crackle Sushi Set
As long as you're not downing things like deep fried rolls all the time, sushi can be a healthy part of your diet. I think this set is gorgeous and I would love to learn how to make my own sushi.
6. Asian Home Gourmet Indian Tandoori Tikka Marinade
I recently bought that box of Indian spices so I could learn how to cook that cuisine. This marinade looks like it will make meat taste fabulous without breaking the calorie bank.
7. Glass Oil and Vinegar Decanter
I use olive oil a lot as my healthy oil for Weight Watchers. Balsamic vinegar often finds its way onto my paninis. I love the way this decanter combines the two together.
