In an effort to convince myself there are better snacks out there than pretzels and cheese sticks, I am going to try to make a post about some snack I enjoy when I am trying to lose weight- ideally it's one that I would ALSO enjoy at any point. It may not be something entirely healthy, or some weeks it may. Today's is sort of neither I think, not sure, maybe a nutritionist can weigh in. Without further ado, the 1st Munchie Monday snack is... Tree of Life Organic sweet Bread and Butter Pickles
(just back from working out, beautiful...)
I get them through my local food co-op and they are just like homemade, except I don't have to make them! Stats include 30 calories, no fat, 180mg sodium and 7g sugars per serving, which is 4 chips (they are fairly big). Soooo, not "free" calories, but satisfying when I want something salty/sweet to tide me over. Yum!
These of course don't have any HFCS (uses sugar cane juice). I do have to fight off the kids for them.
In other news, I stepped it up a little at the gym today and bookended my spin class with a couple mile runs on the treadmill. Have new respect for triatheletes as my legs were rubber running after spin. Felt good though!
