My Favorite Trade

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

I don't even want to talk about the disasters that were my interviews - especially the one that was scheduled for yesterday. Instead, I'm going to share my absolute favorite trade.

For as long as I can remember, I've loved brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tarts, but, at 420 calories for two pastries, they don't exactly fit into a low(er) calorie diet. However, a couple of months ago I tried the brown sugar cinnamon Special K pastry crisps, and was pleasantly surprised. While the taste isn't exactly the same, it's pretty darn close and at 100 calories for a package of two crisps, you can literally have 8 crisps (4 packages) for the same calorie amount as the 2 Pop Tarts pastries. I usually have two packages (4 crisps) at spread them out - have one package for breakfast and one for a mid-morning snack (or however I choose to do it). I definitely find this to be a totally acceptable healthy trade off. Try it sometime. =)
