Surprisingly Delicious!!

I don't like fig newtons. The texture, the taste just was never appealing to me. My sister actually suggested I try the Newtons Fruit Crisps and assured me I would like them. So on my next trip to Walmart I happened to find them. I had a choice between Mixed Berry and Apple Cinnamon and I chose the latter. They were so tasty! The outside was crispy with a sugar like sprinkling. The filling was apple but I didn't taste cinnamon, or maybe that was cinnamon on the outside. They kind of reminded me of a poptart or an apple pie from McDonlald's. Well a low fat/low calorie version anyway. You get two crisps in the pack so you feel like you're getting a real treat!

Orville Redenbacher's 100 Calorie Mini Smart Cakes

I do not like rice cakes or anything that closely resembles them. Usually they're pretty bland and if I want a salty snack I will just eat potato chips. If I want something sweet, I will eat a low calorie cookie. Well just imagine my surprise after tasting the cheddar flavor of Orville Redenbacher's snacks. These popcorn cakes are so tasty! And only 100 calories! You can really taste the cheddar on each cake and it makes you feel like you are eating real chips. The serving size is 21g or about 15 cakes and they come in a box with six bags. Each serving has 100 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, 1 gram of dietary fiber and 180 milligrams of sodium. Not bad at all!

I love cheesecake like nobody's business. It is my absolute favorite dessert. I love it plain with a graham cracker crust. And the filling has to be slightly creamy. mmm - tears are forming in my eyes just thinking about it. Well since I am still trying to lose weight the healthy way I have been looking for a suitable substitute. I don't think Nabisco's 100 calorie Honey Maid Delight bars are it. I tried the Cheesecake bars but they also have a Chocolate version. The bar had a graham cracker "crust" with a cheesecake "filling" and it had icing drizzled on it. If I'm going to have a sweet treat I probably won't choose this but maybe every once in a while.

I am in looooove!!!

I love pizza and I love anything spicy, so imagine my delight at finding this South Beach Buffalo Chicken Pizza! It is so good, I forget it's low in calories and fat. It contains a zesty buffalo sauce with seasoned chicken and is slightly hot, but not too much. Oh, and very filling. I'm going to have to come back and post the nutrition information. Have you tried it? Let me know what you think? (photo courtesy of

Okay, I admit it...

I love love love food. American, Mexican, Chinese, salty snacks, cheesecake - you name it. Only one issue - I am in the process of losing weight - not a whole lot, but enough I need to watch what I eat. So I work out about five times a week - mostly cardio, but I have also changed the way I eat. I have tried everything from low carb to programs counting calories and fat and will have all types of food to review here. I am constantly on the lookout for tasty vittles that are not high in fat, calories or sodium. I have found so many great new products that I wanted to share! Hope you enjoy and don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or suggestions!
