We made it through Monday! I always think that Mondays feel like the hardest day of the week, so I was happy that mine ended at yoga… nothing like a good shavasana at the end of a class to make you feel totally relaxed.
Today I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite new-to-me foodie finds!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Larabar
For years I ate energy bars and only paid attention to the fat and calories… not the ingredient list but when I started trying to eat clean, I realized all of the junk I was putting in my body. When it comes to few ingredients, Larabar is really the best, often boasting less than four ingredients in the entire bar. I love every single flavor that I’ve tried, but when I had the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, I thought I’d died and gone to heaven! I’m not even normally a cookie dough fan, but this bar completely changed my mind and blew me away.
Fiber One 80 Calories
As part of the Pssst General Mills network*, I was sent a sample of the new Fiber One 80 calorie cereal to try! I’ve had other Fiber One cereals in the past and was never impressed. Although they had good stats, I could never get past the taste and texture and my family referred to it as cat food. Luckily, these honey squares are nothing like the original! They are sweet and crunchy and taste like a breakfast cereal that even kids would love. I don’t usually eat cereal (besides granola) but do enjoy having handfuls from the box and this was a delicious, fiber-filled snack!

Skinny Girl Margarita & Sangria
I’ve loved the hilarious Bethenny Frankel for a long time but I’m just now getting on board with her Skinnygirl products! At last week’s Taco Tuesday at a friend’s house we were asked to show up with drinks and multiple people brought bottles of Skinnygirl Margarita and Sangria! The pre-mixed drinks are all natural and contain no preservatives or artificial colors and a 4 oz. glass they are only 100 calories. (Take that 100 calorie packs!) The best part is that they taste delicious- the margarita has the perfect tart flavor and the sangria is slightly sweeter and fruitier.
Wheat Thins Flatbread Tuscan Herb Crackers
I’ve always loved wheat thins but try not to keep them around because they aren’t clean and my self control is limited around crackers. But when I discovered their new Flatbread crackers it all changed for me. These long crackers have the perfect flavor and they are crunchy and delicious. Lately, dipping these into my favorite Trader Joe’s Tomato Basil hummus is one of my favorite snacks!
