    Default Fried Oreos

    Hi! I am trying to teach my children how about portion control and the importance of WHAT we eat. Today we were at an air show and they were selling fried oreos. How do I calculate the points to show them just how bad just one of those would be for you?

    Thanks so much for your help! Aren't ya glad I wasn't asking for the recipe?

    To calculate the points, you will count the oreo, then the batter is funnel cake batter, so you need to count the points on that, plus the oil it is fried in, also they sprinkle them with powdered sugar. So just figure the points for each of these items and you have it.

    I don't want to step on your toes, but if it were me talking to my girls I don't think I would focus on the points aspect of that being an unhealthy choice, but rather tell them how something like that isn't a good choice because it's full of saturated fats which clog your arteries leading to heart disease, and empty calories, and refined sugars which eating too much of can lead to diabetes, therefore there are better choices out there. But, I would also tell them that for a once in a blue moon treat it would be okay - just not a normal everyday thing to consume.

    We see them at the fair every year. Hubby loves Oreas and tried it and said it was oily and nasty.

    You should visit the Minnesota State Fair!! Fried EVERYTHING on a stick. Two years ago they introduced fried macaroni and cheese on a stick and fried candy bars on a stick. Both were very yummy but I will NOT be indulging in these now that I'm a BCBer!!

    FRIED TWINKIES & SNICKERS that was the other item. I had to really think back. Since I never ate them me and mom where asking everyone that went with us what else it was fried.... I think it is a waste of something that use to taste good.

    Actually, all those things sound really gross. I couldn't imagine eating something like that even at my pre WW days. Gimme a nice Fuji or Cameo apple any day.

    None of those sound good to me, except maybe the pickles... but I guess that's a salt thing. I work at a restaurant where we have fried jalepenos.... Just a couple will satisfy me, then I hit the salad (we also have the best honey mustard dressing IMO)... oh... and french onion soup... (good, light broth)... I guess I could go on and on... hope this isn't food porn, but our salads and soup really hit the spot for me

    They are just battered slices, no extra cheese or anything.... hard to guess at what they would be.... but I am addicted. I love fresh foods too though... can't have too much grease... makes me feel 'gross'.

    Fresh foods rock! I am going F&V shopping this morning, and can't wait because they have zucchini & eggplant on sale and I make a absolutely kickin' veggie curry using these!

    Speaking of yummy veggie dishes, I was watching Ina Garten, and her roasted brussels sprouts looked really good! I would do away with the Exxon Valdez-sized "drizzle" of olive oil she used and measure out my 2 tsp., but the dish sounds really tasty and not at all like the gassy, flavourless lumps I grew up with!

    Cordy, I've had her roasted b'sprouts before (MIL made them) and they were delish!

    Three cheers for fresh foods. Vegans call them "live" foods. I think that's about right, as they make me a-live.

    Well, that and they aren't slaughtered

    I need a good veggie casserole, no meat, but probably with cheese on top... does anyone know where I could find one?
