Grilled Cheese Puffs
Starting with food first (of course!) -- I've been really eager to blog about Snikiddy cheese puffs for a while now. As I've mentioned in the past, I'm often drawn to foods marketed at kids because of their portion size. I'm even more drawn to foods that are marketed to parents as being healthy for kids, because then you usually find foods that bridge the best of both of the worlds that I care about -- nutrition and portion size. Snikiddy cheese puffs fall into this category -- in fact their motto is actually "have a healthy day" which I love.
On top of being healthy, these organic cheese puffs are a perfect blend of cheese flavor and crunch, making them a really fun and satisfying treat/snack to eat. On top of that, one portion is only 120 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 1 gram of fiber, and 3 weight watchers points (I know, I wish it was 2, but just not enough fiber). And, they are gluten free, which is an added plus for people with gluten allergies!
Snikiddy can be bought at Whole Foods, Target and other food stores. I also made them available on the Yummy Diet Food Amazon store.
Trip To India
A few of you asked about my trip to India. I was tempted to post about it before I went, but I decided not to just so that I was not advertising to the world "hello I'm going out of town for a while!". I was in India for about a week and a half. It was for business, not pleasure, so I didn't get to do as much as I would have liked. I did get to experience the Indian culture, the Indian food (yum!!!), the unbelievable Indian traffic (there are no words to describe it - it is insane!), and Indian shopping -- like wooden elephants, bartering with store people, beautiful rugs, etc. All in all, it was a really fun trip! But, it is far away -- 21 hours in a plane... which was not fun. I can post a few more pictures if you are interested. Sadly, my camera's batteries ran out while I was there so I didn't get a chance to take a picture of any of the food, although a friend took one picture, so if I get it, I'll definitely post it.
So, a day before I left, Ms. Veggie Wedgie sent me an E for Excellent award. I know I need to pass it along, and I will at some point in the near future once I've had some time to think about it (I love so many of your blogs, it is so difficult to pick). But I wanted to acknowledge the kind gesture as soon as I could! So, thanks Veggie-Wedgie!!
