1. Jala Frozen Yogurt Ice Cream Sandwiches
I was looking for a cleaner ice cream dessert. This caught my eye even though the price was a bit high (I think close to $4!). But, I always like to give everything a try, and these sandwiches were delicious for 140 calories. I highly recommend them. They still have added sugar, but they are less processed than your standard ice cream bar or treat.
Ingredients: VANILLA YOGURT: skim milk, whole milk, sugar, corn syrup, whey, stabilizer(dextrose, soy lecithin, guar gum, xanthan gum, carrageenan), natural vanilla, yogurt culture (bifidobacterium lactis, lactobacillus acidophilus, lactobacillus delbrueckii bulgaricus, streptococcus thermophilus), vitamin a palmitate, asorbic acid, dl-alpha tocopheryl acetate. chocolate yogurt: skim milk, whole milk, sugar, corn syrup, whey, cocoa processed with alkali, nonfat dry milk, maltodextrin, dextrose, soy lecithin, guar gum, xanthan gum, carrageenan, yogurt culture
2. Lifeway Pomegranate Kefir
Found these super convenient single serve bottles of kefir at Whole Foods today. Super tasty. If you are wondering, kefir tastes just like a drinkable yogurt!
I like flavored kefir, so I am willing to sacrifice a small amount of added sugars for the great health benefit (and taste!) that kefir provides. You can read here (my post on Diet-Blog) where I talk all about the health benefits of kefir, and why you too should drink it everyday
1 Cup is about 140 calories and 20 g carbohydrate which is comparable to other Greek and light yogurts.
3. Wholly Guacamole 100 Calorie Packs
I normally wouldn’t buy something like this because I believe it to be a non-budget friendly purchase. But, the price of avocado these days is pretty high anyway, so I figured I would try this portion controlled guac.
My favorite part about these packs is that they offer great portion control for a healthy food that can easily get high calorie. Perfect for bringing to work for lunches or snacks. You could spread it on a sandwich instead of mayo, or eat which a whole grain cracker, or some veggies!
You can see that you get a decent amount for 100 calories.
A great way to get in monounsaturated healthy fats!
I have a few more new things I have bought this week, so I will let you know how those are in the next few days! Enjoy the weekend!
