    Pecan pie. I was eating the pecans off the top one day, cause that’s my favorite part. Then I realized I would probably be just as happy with candied pecans for fewer calories. Then I realized 2 or 3 candied pecans was enough, rather than the 10 or more on a slice of pie.

    +1

    Although, I'm not a fan of most pie in general.

    Hostess Swiss Rolls, which sounded so good, but was really just chocolate flavored waxy sadness, for 410 calories. It was a moment of weakness on a road trip, and I regretted it almost immediately.

    little debbie swiss rolls tho >>>>>>>

    Yeah! Swiss Rolls are so much better than Ho Hos.

    Old Me just had a brief flashback to polishing off a whole box of super fresh Little Debbite Oatmeal Pies. When they are fresh like that, they are manna from heaven.

    The foods that I eat when I'm feeling anxiety and doubt.
  • DeniseSalseraDeniseSalsera Member Posts: 13 Member Member Posts: 13 Member
    Dairy, refined grains (pasta, sweets)

    I am a bit surprised at the list of healthy foods some think aren't worth the calories. You NEED fruits, nuts, and veggies, people.

    There are many foods that allow us to get adequate nutrition. Finding some nutrient dense foods not worth the calories, doesn't mean we're not getting adequate nutrition 😉
    I'm sure I'm getting adequate nutrition even without eating nuts.

    Right?!? I’m allergic to nuts. I am sure I don’t NEED them.

    Not allergic, but I've gotten by this long without eating large amounts of them so I can say I don't NEED them either. You just get so few for the calorie cost. I'm a volume eater so I'd just prefer more bang for my buck eating something else.

    Lots of healthy foods are NOT worth the calories, not to mention can be deadly to some.
    Also, define healthy to you.

    right, for the same amount of vitamins I would rather have X veggie over X fruit, etc.

    Those but ACTUAL Little Debbies.

    I've had the Mrs Freshley's tho. It definitely tastes like a knock off as does most of their hostess type snack cakes. I love their donut sticks tho!

    100 calories per roll, so 200 calories per package. Which is about the same as a regular swiss roll???
