Five healthy and low fat things I really like


I try my best to eat healthy although I fail at times.    But I thought today I would share some of my favorite healthy things and if you haven't tried them, give them a try: 
 
1)  Kashi Island Vanilla Whole Wheat Biscuits Cereal - my favorite!  So far I can only find this at Publix.  I really wish they sold it at Sweetbay which is where I shop most often.

2)  Chobani Greek Yogurt.  Great stuff.  Tasted it in Sam's the first time and fell in love with it.   Savanna and I are crazy about this -- the boys still like the Yoplait "Thick & Creamy" brand even though they are Greek!  (I'm 50% greek, making my boys 25% greek...LOL)

3)  I get a big bag of frozen blueberries from Sam's club.  It's a resealable bag.  In the morning sometimes I make a smoothie with one small container of vanilla lowfat yogurt, 1/2 a banana and throw in a small amount (maybe 1/4 to 1/2 c) blueberries, and about 7 pieces of ice, blend thoroughly and enjoy.  I also keep these blueberries on hand to throw into pancake batter.  I also smash about 1/2 to 1 whole banana and include it in the pancake batter.  Just blend thoroughly and make like any other pancake.  I don't use syrup -- don't need to,  it's amazingly tasty.

 4) I always have a Special K cereal bar in my purse.   I enjoy all the many flavors.

5)  Laughing cow cheese.  I eat the original low fat swiss.  So good on a reduced fat cracker.


p.s.  I will be posting an update on Maddie later today.
