Product Review Monday

This week, I wanted to write about one of my favorite go-to things that both satisfies my cravings for deserts but is healthy for me as well.  It's called Carbmaster and it's a yogurt like thingie.  Not sure what makes it different from official yogurt and why they have to call it a cultured dairy blend instead....but its fuggin yogurt....whatever.

I love yogurt.  Not the old no-flavor style yogurt that hippies use to suck up back in the 70's; I'm talking the yogurts that are coming out these days that make candy bars taste like an old saltine.  They have every flavor and combination of flavors that you can imagine....literally hundreds of different types.

.....and they all have one thing in common.  FAT!   For some of these, you can get all the calories and fat of an entire meal in one itty bitty overpriced container.  If you're eating the stuff just because you like it, that's fine...but if you are doing it with some misguided notion that it will help you lose weight, you would probably be better off just going over to the ice cream aisle.

However; if you want something a bit more reasonable and that you can eat without feeling any regret, try Carbmasters.  They are made by Kroger, so I don't know if you have one of their groceries where you live but they are worth a try if you can find them.  They have 60 calories with 1.5 grams of fat.  4 grams of carbs, and a whopping 9 grams of protein.  Good calcium and vitamin D.  Live cultures just like yogurt.  

The taste is really, really, good.  I go through one or two a day.  With all the restrictions on what I can and cannot eat because of my health issues, it is so great to find things that I don't have to choke down while dreaming of eating good food.
