• Fibre 1 Delights Chocolate Chip Cookies - Low Calorie Snacks Canada

    Fibre 1 Delights Chocolate Chip Cookie

    I am a huge fan of the Fibre 1 Brownies so was excited to try the Fibre 1 Delights Chocolate Chip Cookie. The first thing to know about these is that they are not cookies. They are more like cake bars. Fibre 1 Chocolate Chip Cookie squares are very sweet. They have that more obvious sweetener taste to them compared to the brownies. You still get extra fibre in your diet by using Fibre 1 Delights as a snack and without the dry taste of many fibre bars.

    Dare Veggie Crisps Ketchup Flavour

    Veggie Chips often have a very small amount of vegetables in them and are not much healthier than regular chips. Dare Vegetable Crisps are actually quite a bit lower in calories than chips. Lay’s Ketchup Chips have around 105 calories for 20g while Dare Vegetable Crisps have 70 calories for the same weight. They are made with potato, mixed with yellow and green pea, tomato, beet, spinach, carrot, garlic, onion. On top of that, they are quite crunchy and filling so you will likely be more satisfied by 20g of Dare Veggie Chips than regular potato chips.

    Low Calorie Breads In Canada

    One of the reasons I have not stuck to diets in the past is my love of carbs. You tell me I can’t have bread or potatoes and I will likely fail. So I am always on the hunt for a lower calorie alternative to my faves. Bread is a weakness for me. If I am behind on planning, a sandwich is an easy lunch. I love a slice of toast with my morning cuppa.  But around 100 calories for one slice? That doesn’t work for calorie restriction. You can buy light rye bread or thinly sliced versions of most brands for around 70 calories a slice, but what is…

  • Fibre 1 Brownies Chocolatey Fudge - Low Calorie Snacks Canada

    Fibre 1 Chocolatey Fudge Brownies

    Most of us do not get enough fibre in our diets. If you can add it while getting a chocolate fix, why not? At 90 calories, Chocolatey Fudge Fibre 1 Brownies provide 20% of your daily fibre needs.  You get five individually wrapped brownies per box and they retail for around $3 but you can always stock up on sale as they have good expiry dates.  It is pretty generous in size for 90 calories and drizzled with chocolate to help that sweet tooth craving. In my opinion, the brownies are the best of the Fibre 1 products available in Canada.  Some of the Fibre 1 Delights have that sickly…

    Starbucks Canada: Low Calorie Breakfast Options

    As much as I like to plan my food for the week, my work means coffee meetings and worse, lunch meetings. So I am always on the look out for healthier options at places I may have to visit. Watching someone else eat and just having a plain hot drink is just so no fun.  Since Starbucks seems to be the go to for short meetings, I have become very familiar with their menu options. Sadly, my old favourite of ham & swiss on a croissant no longer fits in my calorie budget, so what does? The easy breakfast option at Starbucks is always the Sous Vide Egg Whites with…
