Food Finds

Since I'm making healthier choices, I'm on the lookout for some different, low points, food finds. This afternoon at the Target, I found Archer Farms Simply Balanced pomegranate raspberry fruit bars with yogurt coating. Break out the handy dandy points finder and discovered that they are 1 point! So my snack tomorrow at work will be one of these, hopefully fabulous, bars.

I've also rediscovered rice cakes. I know; I know. Some people can't stand them. But I actually like the cheesy rice cakes. If I can just keep them out of my daughter's reach, I may have plenty to snack on this week!

I divvied out my Chex chocolate turtle mix and the peanut butter M&Ms into baggies. 1/2 cup of mix is 3 points, and a 1/2 cup of M&Ms is 10 points. (I had 11 points left on Sunday night from my weekly points and I happily indulged in a bag of those sweet chocolates!)

So now I just need to find more yummy ice creams to put in my freezer for snack time.

Ice Cream of the Day: Weight Watchers Giant Latte Bars (1 bar = 90 calories and 1 gram of fat and only 1 point)


  1. How are those latte bars?? I really like the giant fudge bars... tasty and oh so low in points too. Now if only they could find a way to throw some chocolate on the latte bars I might give them a try!


  2. Cheesy rice cakes are yum! As are the caramel ones! :)
