It has been a while since I've posted, but I wanted to share a couple tasty, nutritious snack food finds with you! In addition to naturally delicious fruits and vegetables, these help keep you energized and satisfy those midday cravings:
Dreaming Cow Creamery Yogurt
This Dreaming Cow is a nice break from the Greek yogurt we've been stuck on for years! I love that the yogurt comes from responsibly raised, grass-fed cows and that they've created whole fat, tasty flavors (like Honey Pear and Maple Ginger!) with minimal added sugar. I was able to pick some up on sale for $1.29 per container. With just ~120 calories per container, it's perfect paired with a piece of fruit for snack or would make a great yogurt parfait base at breakfast.
I'm always "researching" (tasting) the perfect meal/snack bar, and I'm totally turned off by those varieties that have lots of weird ingredients and taste like sweetener + protein-powder. While I love the natural ingredients in Kind Bars and Larabars, I recently stumbled upon these Perfect Bars and was quite pleased! With natural ingredients and enough protein to fill you up, they make the Perfect (see what I did there?) meal replacement. For the right sized snack, go with a Lite or the Mini.
