New product finds!

I shop at multiple grocery stores. Trader Joe's is local, Whole Foods is 10-15 miles away, Gelson's is 9 miles away and Fresh and Easy is close but rarely shopped at anymore.

I'd rather be at the grocery store than most places. I consider this a problem. I wandered around Gelson's for an hour the other day while talking to Mari on the phone.

But let's backtrack.

Have any of you tried Peeled Snacks? They are pouches of dried fruit. You can find them at Starbucks. The company sent me some to sample. I have been slowly enjoying them because they are so good!

001

I ate some dried cherries on my lunch break the other day. Yes, I take my lunch breaks in my car. I'm anti-social remember?

002

Salad bars are the best. This salad was $9 at Gelson's. I know that's ridiculous but I only get it once in a blue moon. It was filled with lettuce, spinach, croutons, cheddar cheese, bacon, chickpeas, edamame, zucchini, corn, bell peppers and my favorite dressing cilantro pepita. Honestly I'd eat almost anything dipped in cilantro pepita dressing.

003

Body for Life sugggests eating cottage cheese for a quick protein boost. It's an easy snack but I hate watery cottage cheese. This whipped version is almost like ricotta cheese. Love it! Mari suggested it and I'm so glad she did. 16 grams of protein in half a cup!

004

I also bought these. I will be trying them and reviewing them soon.

005

And I finally tried this video. I only had 30 minutes to workout before going to work at the middle school so I made it snappy. 15 minutes total body workout and 15 minutes upper body workout. I burned 300 calories!

I love that the workouts in this dvd are customizable. I will be trying it out more often. I plan on doing lots more weight training. I will have to pick up some 8lb dumbbells at Tarjey.

006

My Body for Life book came so I browsed through it while eating chobani and granola. I'll try to do a book review soon. I'll admit...the book is kind of outdated and cheesy...

007

I also tried this new Luna bar! Chocolate cherry almond. I think it tastes like a candy bar. The cherry flavor is pretty strong as well.

008

YUM! I bought 2 other flavors to test out. Eating six meals a day is going to be a challenge for me so I need to find some snacks that clock in at under 200 calories with more than 10 grams of protein. Any suggestions?

I've learned a lot more about BFL in the past week and have realized I still need to cut out some carbs and up my protein. A few good small meals I've discovered are scrambled egg whites in a low carb tortilla, plain greek yogurt w/ sugar free preserves mixed in, tuna salad, egg salad, tofu salad, hehe! I love cottage cheese, but I only like it sweetened up with a packet of stevia and I always add in chocolate protein powder and a little dab of PB on top. Omg, so good!! Right now I'm eating a pumpkin pie protein shake that is quite yummy: 6 oz. vanilla almond breeze, 1/4 cup pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, 1 serving Jay Robb's vanilla protein powder, some pumpkin pie spice, stevia, and lots of crushed ice cubes. Doing a quick calculation in my head that comes out to be about 160 calories. Not too bad for a satisfying post workout treat! ;) Looking forward to your review on the book! Oh and I finally found those protein luna bars and I'm so pumped to try 'em. I got the cookie dough and choc. PB I think.

Friendship dairies makes the best cottage cheese.. I can't eat any other brand! Plus it's higher in protein. good choice! I have been wanting to try those Luna Protein bars but I can't find them anywhere. I would suggest greek yogurt for snack. I need to eat more protein so i'm not too helpful!

My daughter and I split one of those Luna bars just today! Very tasty we bought thought. Made a great snack while hiking!

I'd stock up on greek yogurt. I think morningstar veggie burgers have close to 10 grams of protein too.

I probably eat 6x a day, but I have no idea what the protein or calorie counts are. I like some of the peeled snacks, but they are expensive!

I bought some Luna Protein bars this week too! I tried the chocolate peanut butter one last night and it was ok. I bought the cherry one too and am looking forward to trying it soon.

Glad you got on the Jackie Warner/Power Circuit bandwagon- I friggin' love that DVD!

As for protein snacks... That can be tricky... My go-to sources are cottage cheese, greek yogurt, Kashi GoLean cereal, edamame, light string cheese, egg whites/egg beaters... Most of which need to be refrigerated... If you come across any other good finds, please share!

I am not a cottage cheese fan if eating it straight up. However I've found it can be added to a ton of stuff! I add it to oats and oatbran on occasion. You can add it to mashed potatoes and even make bread with it. So versatile!

I've yet to try those Luna Bars. Candy bar you say? I MUST get some immediately!

I don't think my grocery stores carry "whipped" cottage cheese but it sound delicious. I'm going to keep an eye out for them.

Good low cal protein snacks are hardboiled eggs, egg white wraps or sandwiches, Edamame, low fat string cheese wrapped in turkey lunch meat & Greek yogurt. If I think of more I'll let ya know. :)
