    Here's a couple of my favorite balance "hacks":

    1. If having a baked good of some kind, I choose the gluten-free version. This saves me 1 every time.
    2. If running low on balance and I want a beer, I choose red wine. I still take 1 off for alcohol but save the gluten.
    3. I try to save more balance to use later in the week instead of spending it at the beginning of the week. That way if something comes up - I'm still safe.

      Likewise with wine (this works in Ignite too, if you portion carefully), I sometimes have a bit of 100% Pom juice. It has no added sugar, and it's rich enough that it usually kicks my craving for red wine. Obviously use sparingly, and only in 1/4C - 1/2C portions at a time. That's how I'm surviving the holidays on Ignite!

      I still crave chocolate (especially around that time). I found that if you get rice milk (allergy free) chocolate bars -- The only thing you have to count is the sugar. And it's delicious.

    I totally agree, if you're craving baked goods, go for the wheat free, gluten free kinds. I found a brownie mix to make at home. I just have to watch out for the added sugar.

    1. Gluten free soy sauce costs one point instead of two.
    2. Sugar free ketchup and syrup for those "needing" condiments for their foods.
    3. Gluten free, dairy free, soy free, chocolate cake mix costs only one point for sugar.
    4. So Delicious frozen desserts have products that contain no sugar, artificial sugar, soy, dairy, or gluten.
    5. Make you own candy (I'm using cocoa with 100% cocoa mass - melted, unsweetened coconut flakes, and almond slices. If I need more sweetness, I'll add my homemade coconut whipped cream)

      I also agree with #5! I've made Ignite-friendly peanut butter cups a few times now, and they are delicious!

      Try coconut aminos instead of soy sauce. Same taste but no soy or gluten. Also can be used to make soy free teriyaki --- yum
