Current Mood: pissed offpissed the hell off

Oh my dear sweet God.

So, I remember reading that if you add ONE item that is not Core to a Core dish, the dish becomes Core???

God, I want to slam something against a wall.

So, breakfast/lunch today was
1 can black beans
1 avocado
4 tablespoons brown rice
Garlic pepper
some ff cheese 
and...
1 stick of 2 point string cheese.

I mushed everything together and heated it and ate it. Nummy.

But, if that one string cheese f**ked it all up??? Then, that is a ton of points...and, quite frankly, I am out of all 35 points (thank you, emotional depressing mother's day eating...and one bad late night Taco Bell choice when I couldn't remember what the 3 point tacos were and got the Border Bowl which I thought looked harmless enough SINCE IT IS CHICKEN AND RICE AND CHEESE IN A FRICKING BOWL BUT WAS ACTUALLY 10 POINTS!!!!!!)  


GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for tuning in to my total meltdown.

Im not sure if the rules have changed, but the way I see it, if you just added the 2 point cheese to the dish, then I would just count the cheese points and keep the rest as Core.

If you are adding one core thing to a mostly non core dish, I would probably count that, but it would depend on what it was for me :-)

Technically, if you add a non core thing then the whole thing isn't core anymore. But I don't do it that way personally. I agree with stacycat69 - just count the points for whatever isn't core. :)

I do core as well, and I've only counted points for the non core ingredient. I never heard the other rule about it changing the whole recipe and I'm glad I didn't! I've been successful with core the way I do it and I would have been scared to try it otherwise!!

i wouldn't worry about it. that "rule" is ridiculous, and just makes me more scared to try Core, because that's INCREDIBLY restricting, especially since i don't eat FF dairy(eww).

btw, the 3-point tacos are the Crunchy Tacos, fresco style :)

It is not restrictive at all - core allows so many points for the non-core foods each week. You can also "earn" more points by exercising. I love Core because it advocates healthy foods, moderation of less healthy foods and exercise. If I want to splurge or go over my points I simply add more exercise! That is how our body works : ) I am not trying to sound mean but I get frustrated when a person complains about going over their flex points by eating unhealthy 3 meals and then flipping out about a cheese stick. If you are over your flex points, add more exercise to your routine and get back on track with your eating. Good luck and don't get discouraged!
