Sweet Treat With Your Coffee/tea


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I crave something sweet on my break. For a while I was eating a 100-calorie bag of mini-cookies. But I found something better for me. I toast one slice (21 gr.) of Schwebels Smart Light whole wheat bread (35 calories) & top it with 1/2 serving (7 gr.) of Olivio Light (25 calories) & sprinkle it with cinnamon & Splenda (virtually no calories.) I save 40 calories over a tiny bag of cookies. As a bonus my snack contains whole grain, fiber & no sugar. Weigh your bread...(click title for more info)

..& Olivio. Even though a slice of bread is supposed to be 21 gr., each is often only 17 or 18. And 7 gr. of Olivio is almost too much, so 5 might do, saving a few extra calories there, too. Even with 2 slices of bread (70 cal.) the total is less than 100 & better for you than cookies.
