Hey guys! I had a few hours to myself this morning so I decided to get a little workout in at a CrossFit gym just a few blocks from the hotel. It’s called SolCity and they let me pop into their morning class.Continue Reading →
I just finished an evening snack of yogurt topped with strawberries, cocoa nibs, chia seeds and honey and I thought, hmpf,Continue Reading →
I know not everyone knows of or shops there, but I LOVE Aldi’s! They don’t have many of the traditional products the husband wants but for your basic pantry stock–canned goods, pasta, condiments, and even frozen meats–their prices can’t be beat. I like to go at least every month or so and it [...]Continue Reading →
Has it really been over a year since I shared a Food Find? Really?! Oh my we must remedy that!
A few weeks ago I posted about trying some Ezekiel Bread for the first time. Then strolling through the grocery store I stumbled across this…Continue Reading →

I found the Quaker True Delights Multigrain Fiber Crisps (can that name be any longer) during the same grocery trip where I found the popchips. There were tons of flavors (of course now I can’t remember any of them) but the two that jumped out at me were the wild blueberry and the blackberry pomegranate. [...]Continue Reading →
I was at a Whole Foods the other day. I rarely go as it’s far and a bit too pricey for me but I love it. There’s so many fun things to look at! I could spend hours perusing up and down the aisles reading ingredient lists and nutritional information. What can I [...]Continue Reading →

It’s been forever since I’ve done a good old fashion Food Find. Now that I’m getting comfortable in my new home I feel I can spend a little more time grocery shopping and stocking (I’m very much a buy in bulk stock-er type of shopper so the whole temporary living situation for that [...]Continue Reading →
I’m a nighttime snacker. It’s a habit. I enjoy it. I don’t want to give it up. I routinely eat something between 11 and midnight daily. I always have, even while losing. Generally I keep the snacks light. Fruit, Popcorn, light ice cream treats, soy crisps and salsa or crackers with some laughing cow cheese. [...]Continue Reading →
It’s been FOREVER since posting a Food Find. For those that are newer readers, Food Finds are products I spy at my local grocery store that I feel the need to pass on. These aren’t to be confused Product Reviews which are sent to me for the explicit purpose of reviewing. I’m not sure why, [...]Continue Reading →
This is more of a food re-find. I started buying these back a few years ago and have been meaning to post about them every since! I forgot about them (not all stores carry them) for a bit until coming across them again last weekend.
These are one of my favorite Quaker Products. They [...]Continue Reading →
Do you eat them? I’m going to be honest, I’ve NEVER had one until a few days ago. I don’t know what possessed me to pick them up from the grocery store (oh yea, I was hungry) but I did. I picked up a package of Sunsweet 60 Calorie Pack Pitted Prunes and Dark chocolate [...]Continue Reading →
While grabbing my whole wheat english muffins at the store yesterday, these gems caught my eye. I never saw them before and when I picked them up I knew I had to buy them. They were soft, big, 100% whole grain and 1 point!! So I ditched the english muffins (for the week) and decide [...]Continue Reading →
I found this bread a few days ago at my local BJ’s. I never heard of Lavash bread but it looked good, like a huge rectangle of flat bread (similar to flat out). Glancing at the nutritional information reveals it’s only 50 calories a serving! With 2g of fat and 3g of fiber. Now don’t [...]Continue Reading →
Shopping the other day I was thirsty and hungry, NOT a good combination at the grocery store. While perusing the dairy section I saw a shelf full of these yellow smoothie bottles. Normally I’m very hesitant with smoothie products. They are usually a waste of calories that I’d rather use on real, "chewed" food. But [...]Continue Reading →
Awhile back I posted a list of 1 point tortillas that I found and I’ve been meaning to update it now for over a year. A YEAR! Well, I finally got my act together.
Now this list is not a list of the only tortillas I use. Frankly, I’m a tortilla fanatic and anytime a [...]Continue Reading →
Having a coupon, I bought a package of Starkist Light Meat Tuna Fillets months ago. Investigating it at the grocery store I discovered 1 package was 1 serving weighing it at only 2 points. So I picked up a few packs thinking they’d make a nice quick diner when I didn’t feel like cooking. So [...]Continue Reading →
Just by chance the other day the husband wanted to go to Kentucky Fried Chicken for lunch. I told you all, fast food junky, right? Anyway, I said sure and crossed my fingers that I’d have the strength to get something not dripping in fast food fried grease.
The KFC we decided to hit [...]Continue Reading →
Last week I came across Whole Grain Pepperidge Farm Very Thin Sliced Bread. I’m sure it’s not new but this was the first time it caught my eye. Reading the nutritional information I was pleasantly surprised to find 3 slices were only 110 calories, 1.5g of fat and 3g of fiber. That’s just 2 points! [...]Continue Reading →
LesserEvil my ARSE! These things are PURE evil! I mean that in the nicest way possible. :~)
I found them Sunday on my weekly grocery trip and let’s just say, the only thing left is the bag. Classic kettle corn with some chocolate gazed kernels YUM YUM and YUM!
I’m going to give the nutritional [...]Continue Reading →

Check out my OTHER quick meal idea with these Ramen Noodles
Oh boy! If you are anything link me you lived off Ramen Noodles in college. They were cheep, fast and the perfect midnight snack!
The problem with them? Well let’s see, [...]Continue Reading →
Ummmmm…… “Creamy” fat free ice cream. Yea right? You say. But seriously this stuff is good! A friend brought it to my attention a few days ago so I was on a hunt at the grocery store. Sure enough there it was, 1 POINT ice cream!
Unfortunately my store only carried Vanilla so I [...]Continue Reading →
I LOVE finding new snacks! Every time I shop it’s like a hunting expedition, my own little adventure.
Today my hunting ground was BJ’s, a local wholesale club, and my prey was Sensible Portions Multi Grain Mini Crisps. I’ve never heard of the brand before so I approached with extreme caution. I wasn’t going [...]Continue Reading →
HOLY SMOKES! Have you seen this stuff? Last weekend, it caught my (and the husband’s) eye. I almost immediately dismissed it when I saw the Cinnabon name. We all know the monstrosity that is Cinnabon, don’t we? I mean I LOVE me a Cinnabon. There really is nothing like it, but weighing it at 730 [...]Continue Reading →
I hope this isn’t a “What are you, living under a rock” find but I just (re)discovered that Ben & Jerry’s has a lighter line.
The husband wanted to get a treat for himself and good old B&J’s were 2 for $5 so I just HAD to take look. I figured I could get [...]Continue Reading →
I found these a few weeks ago at my local grocery store and I’ve been meaning to post them ever since. They were in the Asian food section by the soy sauce. It was quite a surprise as I’ve been down that aisle many times and I never noticed them before. So I checked out [...]Continue Reading →
I’ve been doing this a looong time…
