You may not know this about me, but I’m about 70 lbs. overweight. I’ve been dieting for years, on and off. My willpower and I have a strong love/hate relationship. Sometimes, I get spurts where I lose 20 lbs. and sometimes I gain 2 lbs. I’ve pretty much stayed in the 240-260 lb. range for about 7-8 years. Yes, I know 70 lbs. from 240 is 170 and that sounds a bit high, but here’s something else about me, I’m 5’11”. Yep, I am pretty dang tall! (I swear, the air is thinner up here!)
Anyway, I’m always on the look-out for diet friendly (but doesn’t taste like cardboard) snacks. I subscribe to Hungry Girl, and while I really dislike her recipes, (out of the 4 I’ve tried, they have all come out flavorless and nasty) I do take her snack/brand advice seriously and try some new things. My latest is the Vitamuffin tops.
I found them in the freezer section of my Target (near the organic stuff) and I’m in love! I was apprehensive to try the deep chocolate, because I hate dark chocolate! However, this isn’t like that at all. It’s yummy, chocolatey and indulgent. Most importantly, it’s only 100 calories and full of vitamins. As far as portion size goes, it’s about the size of my palm, so it’s not that small.
I highly recommend them as a breakfast item or snack during the day! If you don’t have a Target near you, I know they sell them online as well!
By the way, I know this sounds like an ad for Vitamuffins, but I swear it’s not. I’m not that popular to get companies asking me to advertise.
