I've been snacking full force in front of the TV since the Olympics started. Have any of you caught the Women's Hockey games? Team USA is looking fierce on the ice! I've noticed that a lot of the players wear mascara while they play... I can't help but be curious, wanting to know what kind of mascara Olympic hockey players wear?! Not only are their lashes looking lovely, but they are playing well, too... USA whooped up on Finland, and Switzerland. Tomorrow they play Canada - I'm guessing this will be a tighter game than the previous two. So in terms of snacking, those who know me, know that I'm not much of a hearty eater. I would much rather nibble and crunch on 50 little things sporadically, instead of wolfing down a traditional meat/veggie/carb dinner. As a result, I've become an expert, or as my dad likes to call it "world class" snacker. These are the four leading snacks I've been chowing down on while watching the Olympics.
First up, The Broccoli Slaw Kit
This stuff comes in a kit that contains, the slaw, dressing, and the nuts/cranberries. I always eat the whole bag in a day. A few bites here, a few bites there. This shit is good. And I consider it to be healthy because it has the world broccoli in the title.
Blue Diamond's Rosemary and Black Pepper Almonds
I'm not crazy about plain almonds. I think they are boring and bland tasting. But Blue Diamond has NAILED the flavored almond creations. Some of my other favorites include the Honey Dijon, and Coconut flavors. But I literally could barely contain myself when I first tried the Rosemary and Black Pepper flavor. And, a plus point for Blue Diamond because 28 nuts equates to 1 serving! I get immense satisfaction when I get a lot of "bang for my buck" in the caloric sense. ;)
Wheat Thins Dipped in Chive and Onion Cream Cheese
Reduced-Fat Wheat Thins + Your Favorite Cream Cheese Flavor = You're welcome. (Pro tip: Do not get the store brand Wheat Thins... they are not as good).
Brookside Dark Chocolate Covered Goji Berries
If I'm craving chocolate, I eat these bad boys. I doubt they are much healthier for you than any other chocolate. But I don't eat these to be healthy, I eat them because they are freaking delicious.
