Foods I Currently Can’t Live Without

As promised I am going to start showcasing some of the more healthy items that I put into my belly on a regular basis.  🙂  I think it’s amazing how far healthy food has come in the past 5-10 years.  You now don’t have to just eat styrofoam boring rice cakes as snacks.  There are so many options out there!  So here are some things that I currently cannot live without:

Annie’s Bunny Grahams – Honey Flavor: So these little bunnies are amazing.  When I want something sweet I grab a handful of these and it definitely curbs the craving.  And the top of the box says to gently tug the ears to open – is that cute or what???  But onto the good stuff – these come in four flavors, they are trans and saturated fat-free, made with organic wheat flour and organic evaporated cane sugar, and are also a good source of calcium.  Yummy bunnies!

Bear Naked Fit Granola:  I have had an obsession with Bear Naked Fit granolal for quite some time now.  Some people need their coffee in the mornings – I need this.  Bear Naked makes several great granola flavors but these are my two favorites.  I mix it every morning with Kashi H2H cereal for a yummy filling breakfast with my banana.  Onto the good stuff – made with real whole grains, low sugar and good source of fiber, low glycemic index, all natural – no artificial flavors, no cholesterol, no hydrogenated oils, no high fructose corn syrup, no preservatives and 0 grams trans fat.  Also vegan and vegetarian friendly if that is your lifestyle.  Go buy this – NOW!

OIKOS Organic Greek Yogurt:  I used to hate yogurt but I have acquired a taste for it in the past year.  I eat this for my morning snack and also use it in cooking meals that require yogurt.  The good stuff – it has twice as much protein as regular yogurt, less lactose, and fewer carbs.  The plain yogurt has 0% fat and just 80 calories per serving which is great for a morning snack. 

Clif Bars:  And last but definitely not least, my absolute favorite little protein bar currently, the Clif bar.  More specifically the chocolate chip peanut crunch Clif bar.  For some reason I had always thought that these things must taste like crap, but let me tell you, eating this one is like eating a dessert that I shouldn’t be eating.  It is SO good.  I have one of these before a workout sometimes or in the morning with my breakfast if I don’t have time for cereal.  The good stuff – great organic ingredients, high in protein and fiber, all natural, and no trans fats.  Did I mention how YUMMY these are?!?!

Okay, now go out and buy some of this stuff!  Let me know what you think of it all.  🙂
