Product Review Monday

Since the last review was on the abomination called Arctic Zero, I thought this time I would review something I've found that is not only healthy but is tasty as well.

Okay, healthy might be stretching it a bit.  More along the lines of not-bad-for-you, at least compared to some of the mountains of crap offered for snacking out there in the world today.  Because folks...I'm a believer in snacks.  I like to eat and I have a sweet tooth.  Show me somebody that rigidly follows a diet plan, meal after timed and measure meal, day after day...and I'll show you somebody that will eventually say fuggit to their diet plan and relapse like an alcoholic at Oktoberfest.  You have to be able to treat yourself and it's great when you can do that and still maintain sanity with your eating plans.  A couple of items that I've found to fit the bill are these fudgsicles and popsicles shown above.

The popsicles are great.  They're about 15 calories, no fat, sugar free, no sodium, and have a minuscule 4 grams of carbs.  These are about as close to a guilt free treat that I have found...and they taste really good.  The perfect fix for any urges for something sweet.

The fudgsicles are really good as well.  Not quite as guilt free but not anything that's going to blow your diet for the day.  They come in at around 40 calories, 1g of fat, 45g or sodium, and 9 g of carbs.  They taste...just wonderful.  Gawd they are good!  Nice chocolate flavor.  It really seems like you're indulging in real decadence eating these things.

So...if you are having trouble staying on an eating plan because you get overpowering urges to snack every once in a while...try these.  The reason to diet is to become healthy and maintain that health.  I don't think it's meant to give up foods or to give up the pleasures of eating.  Living healthy should never be something to endure; it's something to enjoy.
