So, at lunch I walked down to the little neighborhood market. All I went in for was bread & milk, but you know how THAT goes...
Got the Food For Life bread. Did not have milk in glass bottles so no milk.
Amy's Kitchen Black Bean Chili (To which I added Tapatio and am now enjoying immensely, but remember, the can is two servings, Norah, so we do NOT eat the entire can. Ok?)
Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Whole Grain Flourless Golden Flax Cereal
Lower in calories and lower in carbs than my old Kashi 7 Grain Nuggets and higher in protein. Fat is just a half gram more than Kashi.
Mother's Toasted Wheat Germ (ThisYearsModel told me about this. I know you sprinkle it on stuff and it says it's a good source of Vitamin E and Folic Acid and you can't go wrong with things that are "toasty" can you?)
Cadia Organic Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce (I'm not familiar with this particular brand of organics but I like that there's nothing fake in it and no sugar and only 35 calories per half cup and 1g of fat.
Newman's Own Cinnamon Mints
Couldn't find a picture of the roll and I wanted you to see the vintagey wrapper that caught my eye and sold me on them before I even had a chance to check the ingredients so please pretend this green wrapper is red and says cinnamon instead of wintergreen. I got these because I found that eating a cinnamon candy curbs my craving for all other candy and since I can't find Brach's cinnamon candies at the store and these are organic and only have 10 calories they're better anyway. The only thing I don't like is they have corn syrup, but until I find something with organic sugar, they'll have to do.
Wasabi Peas (Hmm...maybe not the smartest purchase. They don't seem to have any real nutritional value, but every now and then I need something really spicy!!!! I'll make sure I carefully measure out a small treats-worth of them.)
Siggi's Icelandic style skyr strained non-fat yogurt - Orange & Ginger flavor
Most of us are familiar with Greek yogurt by now, but what the heck is Icelandic-style yogurt?
According to the website, they strain out all the water and use more milk so there's 2-3 times the amount of Protein. Comparing that to my Brown Cow Organic Greek I see that's true. For a few more grams I get less calories, less carbs, and more protein.
And the final item was a container of organic strawberries.
