I love cereal, and I love big fat bowls of it (which can be multiple servings). To trick myself, I fill up a bowl with fruit-- bananas, berries, kiwis, pineapple, whatever I have-- and then pour a measured serving or half-serving over the fruit. Looks like a HUGE full bowl, but isn't! Top off with unsweetened almond milk at 35 calories to be EXTRA GOOD :) (or skip milk and use low-fat yogurt instead). Yum!
Southwest Enchilada Black Bean Dip-Fritos brand-actually looked at the label...
I'm a sucker for chips & dip!! Bought a can of Fritos Southwest Enchilada Black Bean Dip & didn't open it because I was sure it wouldn't be good for me, but then I looked at the label & a serving is just 30 calories and NO FAT!! Imagine my surprise!! Not everything Fritos makes is terrible for you. Had a serving of the dip with a serving of baked tortilla chips - a pretty good snack all-in-all!!
This dip had a nice spice to it. I think I was scared of this dip since I hadn't read the label or ingredients - which I know should be done before making the purchase. If I had only done so, I'd have been enjoying it much sooner & would probably be on can 3 or 4 right now.
I'm a big oatmeal fan. In face, I am happy to eat whole grain, natural oatmeal for breakfast almost every day. I vary the taste by adding fresh fruit before I cook it (an apple, a pear, a banana, or a handful of cranberries) and pop the whole bowl in the micro-wave. It's a comforting, healthy, and filling breakfast.
