The first is from dietician Arlene at Slimband: Margaret’s Artisan Bakery Crisps from MJ’s Fine Foods. I couldn’t find them on their website but I found this pic from the good people over at The Gourmet Retailer. Available at the Bulk Barn and Costco there’s lots of fantastic flavours that are sure to spice up my snacking much better than bland o
ld ‘rye crisps’. I don’t mind a good rye crisp now and then but sometimes they taste like cardboard.
The second snack is one I found myself and totally love. They’re called Clif Bars and they come from The Clif Bar Company. They’re relatively high in calories for a snack so probably best for a breakfast on the go. Restricted bandsters probably couldn’t eat a whole one easily anyway. BUT they’ve got a mini version topped out at around 100 calories so that would definitely do the trick. Sadly, there’s only a 6 of the 19 varieties available in the small size but you could always eat half a big one if you like. I’ve seen them at the Superstore but I picked mine up at Winner’s yesterday.
I tried half of a Crunchy Peanut Butter bar and with around 125 cal and 5 g protein, it was a great mid-afternoon shopping snack. Curbed the huge hunger pains from waiting over 4 hours to eat. I should know better by now but at least I have something nutritious and delicious I can carry around in my bag so it doesn’t happen again.
