But the other item is a box of VitaTops from Vitalicious. www.vitalicious.com
I keep them in the freezer, pop a couple in my lunch bag when I wake up and they're thawed by the time I get into the office and get settled with a cup of coffee.
My favorite, the double chocolate has 100 calories, NINE grams of fiber, 1.5 grams of fat and vitamins and minerals. It tastes like a bakery treat. Heated, with a little scoop of low fat ice cream or just by itself - YUMMMM!
There's lots of other flavors as well, including chocolate peanut butter, banana nut, cornbread, cranberry, brownie, etc.,all lot fat, and high fiber. They also have a couple that are sugar free and Kosher.
I bought these as although I'm within 14 pounds of my goal weight, I've totally stalled. I'm eating modest portion of healthier meals but with all the cakes, rolls, cookies and such that are around the office at holiday time, I was cheating too much (a protein shake doesn't look all that great when there's a piece of freshly baked chocolate cake on the office kitchen counter).
So, through the end of February I'm going to have a Vitalicious VitaTop Egg Sandwich (they make some great low cal, high fiber breakfast sandwiches including a vegetarian one), or Energy Loaf for Breakfast and a Vitatop for an afternoon snack. We'll see if I can get over this weight loss speed bump and lose those last 14 pounds without depriving myself of some carbs for breakfast and an afternoon treat.
Note: I've eaten the products before but the little grocers in my village didn't carry them. (most larger retailers and Target carries them, but I hate to make an extra drive to go to a different grocers, though I used to when I lived in Indiana to get the little vegetarian Vita Pizzas which are an awesome lunch).
So finding them online and also finding that with a purchase of a month's worth for breakfast and snack I got a dozen Vita Tops FREE, Customer service is excellent too. When the banana nut order was slightly delayed due to its popularity they let me know right away with a personal email and provided a UPS tracking number for it.
