Hiding Junk Food
Have you cast aside all your holiday chocolate yet? Making all of mine less accessible has been on my “to do” list for about 3 weeks now. Somehow it seems to be the item that keeps getting bumped to the next day’s list.
All the while, I’m totally eating it. I suppose candy is harder to get to and eat if I’ve ALREADY eaten it, right???
Making the Switch
But now I feel ok to get the job done, because I’m putting something yummy in its place. I’ve got Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies. In addition to being a low-calorie dessert option, they also each contain 20% of your daily fiber requirement (5 grams).
I am loving these for several reasons. First, they taste great! I wasn’t really expecting a low calorie, high fiber brownie to delight my taste buds, but I was mistaken. They are delicious and I’m more than happy to swap out my chocolate stash for these.
Second, they are sized right. We Americans have serious portion control issues, and seeing what size of a treat I should be eating is helpful.
Third, these are highly portable. I’ve been sticking them in my purse so that when I’m out running errands and Darah announces that she’s hungry, I’ve got something to give her that will be a special treat for her, and won’t make me feel guilty. Tim also has a stash of these in his drawer at work so he can satisfy a craving for sweets easily.
Are you seeking a sweet treat that you will actually enjoy eating, and that will help you step away from the junk food with ease? I definitely recommend Fiber One Brownies. I’ve only tried the Chocolate Chip (love, love, LOVE them!), but they also offer Peanut Butter and Fudge varieties. Incorporating Fiber One Brownies as part of a weight management plan just makes sense!
