New treats provide incentive!
Sunday, August 12, 2012
To make tracking simple, I eat a lot of the same foods regularly: oatmeal, tuna, green beans, bananas, apples, whole wheat bread, low-fat cottage cheese, baby carrots...you know the drill! But sometimes I get tired of the same-old-same-old, and go searching for something new.
Today, I'd run by the store, and noticed they had The Laughing Cow cream cheese wedges on a BOGO sale, so decided to get some as it'd been a long time since I'd had any. Enjoyed a section of the Strawberries and Cream flavor (45 calories) spread on a graham cracker as a bedtime snack...yum yum! Earlier in the week, I had picked up a bag of the Quaker Quakes rice snacks in cheddar cheese flavor. I use a half-serving (about 9 of the chips) in place of a bread to liven up a meal.
When you want a treat that doesn't involve a major calorie splurge, what fills the bill for you?
