Mostly we've settled into a wrap most of the week, and then sandwich thin sandwiches the other two days (the wraps we buy come in 6 packs). We start with spelt wheat tortillas, add a smear of Valencia Crunchy Peanut Butter with Flaxseeds, top with various fruit and roll into a burrito. Most commonly it's a banana, pomegranate seeds & (local) honey to make sealing of the wrap more effective.
This week, though, they're getting banana, blueberries, blackberries & pomegranate seeds:
Not to be left out of the fruity goodness, I packed in some blueberries & pomegranate seeds to add to my Vanilla Chobani:
Yes, I've kind of fallen off the non-dairy wagon. Cheese was the first to creep back, although, still, mostly in limited quantities. The occassional serving of musthaveicecream. And now yogurt for breakfast.
But I needed to concentrate more on my protein intake, and I'm kind of doing this as an experiment. Since the Chobani was on sale, I bought ten single serve tubs & we'll see what's what when those are gone. I am happy to report that Chobani contains real fruit & real sugar to flavor their yogurt, and it's just as good as regular yogurt. Possibly better. It's thicker, creamier and with less of that super-sweetness. Remember how yogurt used to be before everything started mimicing candy? Kind of like that.
Finally, in food news, I finally caved and bought something from Vitalicious. I've been avoiding the VitaTops that I see all over just about every dieting blog. Because, come on... Aren't they just a healthy version of the 100 Calorie Snack Packs? A Fake Food made in a factory?
Well, yes. They kind of are. But I really wanted an extra something in my lunch yesterday, and these really do have great numbers, plus they provide 50% of your daily iron requirement, which, clearly, I'm not getting. So I took the plunge.
Well of course I got the brownies.
Taste & satisfaction wise, these are very "meh". I would not count on them being able to satisfy a cravings for sweets. But it was a nice little addition to a low-calorie day and, apparently, with quite a Good-For-You kick.
