Fabulous Favorite Friday

Happy Friday everyone! We made it through another week. January is just flying by. It is hard to believe that we haven't had a big snow yet.

For my Fabulous Favorite Friday picks, I thought I'd share a few things that I've been snacking on in the evening. This first thing I discovered when I had gestational diabetes. I've always liked cheese, but with the gestational diabetes I needed something that was already portioned out so I could count carbs. These little cheeses by Land O Lakes are great because they snack size and since they are wrapped individually, they are handy to take with you.
I also really like their size because Sawyer likes to eat them and it is just the right portion for him to eat. I personally like the Colby Jack but they also have Cheddar.

The other part of my snack with my cheese has been Triscuits. I have gotten the Reduced Fat crackers. I have noticed recently that they have a number of new flavors out including some that have rosemary. Those were a tad strong for me, so I just stick with the original flavor. The other flavors would be great to have something different for a party. I like the crunchy taste and a few of these are filling.

The other part of my snack has been the Crystal Light on the Go Pink Lemonade. I really like these packets because you can just put them into your bottle water and shake them and it jazzes up your water.
This was another thing I discovered I could have when I had gestational diabetes. Even though that has gone, these are some smallthings I've decided to keep in my diet. I have a sweet tooth and since soda isn't always the best thing, the Crystal Light is a great thing to have. It comes is so many different flavors. I have also tried the Fruit Punch flavor, as well as some of the tea flavors they have.
I hope you enjoy these snack options. I know a lot of folks are trying to change their diets and eat healthy. So hopefully these will be some new things to try. Have a great weekend!
