Anyways... There are some food staples I generally always have in my house. These are my go to items so I don't generally think to much when I have want a snack, dessert, or go to meal. Here are my food staples:
- Greek Yogurt
- Granola Bars (Luna Chocolate Peppermint, Carrot Cake or Quest Bars)
- Dark Chocolate Chips
- Progresso Light Soup
- Mid's Pasta Sauce/Whole Wheat Pasta
- Spinach/Carrots - for side salads
I am loving greek yogurt. As I mentioned in a previous post I love the Dannon Fit & Light Greek Yogurts. However, I finally tried plain greek yogurt with honey, fresh fruit, and granola. It has been my go to snack lately. I love the sweetness of it and the crunch of the granola. Delicious! The honey makes all the difference to sweeten it up.
I also love bananas! Bananas are great on their own; however, I make protein cookies, bananas dipped in melted dark chocolate, protein muffins, protein shakes with frozen bananas, and more. Now when I have a chocolate craving I eat bananas with dark chocolate chips or I melt the dark chocolate chips. Before I would have eaten a king size Snickers or a bag of candy.
I have been drinking SoBe Life Waters lately too. It helped me give up my extreme Diet Coke addiction. I don't drink them as often as I did since they are still not good for you and have artificial sweetener. They did help me kick my drinking Diet Coke. My favorites are the black & blue berry, acai raspberry, and yumberry pomegranate.
