• Packaging of Huer Sensible Sweets Fruity Fish low calorie candy

    Huer Sensible Sweets Fruity Fish Review

    I have a wicked sweet tooth and am trying to be more mindful of how many calories are in my snacks. Huer’s Sensible Sweets line come in  Fruity Fish (strawberry and raspberry flavours) or Fruity Bears (orange, lemon, strawberry and blueberry flavours). Both offer 50g of candy for 150 calories with 12g of fibre and only 3g of sugar. They use Isomalto-oligosaccharide as the main ingredient which is meant to be digestion-resistant and about 50% as sweet as sugar (and these gummies are definitely not super sweet despite the added stevia) and juice concentrate for colour. What I love about them You get a fair amount of candy for 150…

    Back on track in 2024 – My Health Plan

    So it has been a while and no surprise, I gained it all back (and then some). The last few years have been tough physically and mentally and as an emotional eater, I often turn to food for comfort. But 2024 is a year to get back on track. I actually started in December but knew that I wouldn’t be able to sustain the plan through the holidays so I just tried to eat better and lost 10lbs. But now that the holidays are over, fresh start! I know that to stay on track diet wise, I need to work on other areas of my health too. So my five…

    Dr Oetker Yes It’s Pizza Cauliflower Pizza with Chicken & Peppers

    A good pizza with reasonable calories can be hard to find. There are plenty of thin crust pizzas with around 220 calories per slice. Or you can make your own with a tortilla or similar crust for less. Not always very satisfying through. Dr Oetker Yes It’s Pizza recently showed up in my local grocery store. They are around $5 and come in beetroot, cauliflower or spinach crusts. Each with a different topping. Ingredients in Dr Oetker Yes It’s Pizza – Cauliflower Crust CRUST: Enriched wheat flour, cauliflower, canola oil, yeast, modified corn starch, sugar, water, salt SAUCE: Tomato sauce (crushed tomatoes, water), tomato puree, water, sugar, salt, modified corn starch, thyme,…

  • Special K Cracker Chips Salt & Vinegar Review - Low Calorie Chips Canada

    Special K Cracker Chips (Low Calorie Chips)

    I am usually a more sweet than salty snacker but something about a low calorie diet makes me crave chips. Special K Cracker Chips are my go to snack. They are just the right amount of tasting slightly fatty without being greasy. Lot’s of flavour and a decent quantity for 80 calories. Plus, unlike many chips, I actually find I get more per serving than the box says, and that always makes me happier. They do have lactose in them. It doesn’t make a huge difference to me, but something to note for those who are lactose intolerant. Special K Cracker Chips Nutrition Data Serving size 20g (shown in bowl…

  • LeClerc Celebration Mini Butter Cookies - Low Calorie Snacks Canada

    LeClerc Celebration Mini Cookies

    I have to stick to bags of mini cookies. I don’t have the will power to only eat 1-2 regular sized cookies out of a pack. The open package just calls my name. I picked up these LeClerc Celebration Mini cookies at Dollarama. You get 7 packages of cookies for $2. So a snack a day! 110 calories for 7 chocolate covered butter cookies. Unlike many 100ish calorie packs, these actually taste similar to the original LeClerc Celebration cookies. There are certainly lower calorie options for cookies, but many don’t hit that craving as well as Leclerc Celebration Minis. I try to keep my snack options under 100 calories. But…
