A few of my new favourite things

Sunday, February 15, 2009

It's been a busy few weeks leading up to opening... I wanted to let you know about a few of the things that have helped me through!

Last week I discovered
Ryvita high fibre snackbreads. With only 120 calories, 1 gram of fat and 5 grams of fibre per 6 slices, this is a great snack with incredible bang for your Points buck! I enjoyed mine with hummus, but they would be great with anything spreadable, cheese, with soup or just on their own. I also like that they only contain 3 ingredients - whole wheat flour, wheat bran and salt. I will definitely buy these again and I am looking forward to trying some more of the Ryvita product line.

I have a number of bloggers to thank for my introduction to the Larabar. These are amazing. They are full of fruits nuts and spices with no additional preservatives or sweeteners. They come in more than 10 flavors and range from 4 to 5 Points each. That's a little bit more than your average granola bar, but they're full of good stuff like a serving a fruit, fibre and omegas. I usually try to avoid whole nuts, but the larabars don't seem to irritate my tummy (so far - fingers crossed) These have been a great go-to snack for rehearsals as they are portable, have substance and leave me feeling satisified. I went nuts over the cherry pie flavor on Saturday and was actually sad when it was over. I look forward to trying some of the other flavors in the future!!

Ok, I've got to go back to Ryvita -- I keep forgetting about them, and they are SO good at hummus. Of course, they are also a cheese-delivery mechanism for me, so I have to be careful ;)

I've been loving the Kashi cherry dark chocolate granola bars. Not sure if they'd work for your tummy, but I love them, and they kept me going through show time.

Under no circumstances should you try the FIBER PLUS bar, trust me. Scary scary stuff.

PS. I've been loving the Wasa crackers. Very filling, and similar to the ryvita :)
