I found some new tasty eats this past week. I am never looking for anything specific either. I just usually run into items accidental. First up is Olivio Coconut Butter Spread. I t was a total impulse buy, but I am glad I gave in. I love it! I was not even sure how to use it. So far, it’s been used on toast (with cinnamon and sugar-Amara learned the “recipe” at school), baked sweet potato, waffles (topped with pumpkin, Biscoff and Agave) and my finger. 🙂
Nimble – Next up is the Nimble nutrition bar from Balance. I had never even heard of these before. I was in the
candy medicine isle at the dollar store and saw them. They were 2 $1. I bought 2 of the Peanut Butter flavor. I figured it sounded much better than an orange yogurt swirl bar ( yuck). It is tiny, but for only 120 calories it should be. It was alright tasting. It tasted more like a nutrition bar than a candy or granola type bar. It’s geared towards women too. It has 5g of fiber, 10g of protein and is a good source of calcium, iron and other vitamins. I am not sure how much they retail in a regular store, but for .50 a bar – I would buy them. It was a nice portable snack between meals ( which is usually after teaching a class for me). A nice way to feed my muscles and refuel.
Sveletbrand – this was a funny find. The package caught my attention! 🙂 They were on sale 2 for $4 at my local grocery store. They have 15 grams of protein, 35g carbs and 260 calories. For some of us, this could be a meal replacement drink. I have only tried the chocolate flavored one ( hello beautiful) so far. I wish it tasted better! It’s not disgusting, but it is actually a bit sweet for me. Which is weird, because I love sugar. Like LOVE it. I think it tastes a bit artificial. It’s flavored with stevia which I use regularly. It’s also very filling. So filling that I could not drink the whole thing in one setting! I am in search of ( Andi might be as well) a quality meal type shake to supplement with. One or 2 days a week it’s difficult for me to eat lunch based on my activity. I am in the car a lot and it’s hard to eat salad while driving- I have tried. It was not easy. Finding a healthy meal replacement would be awesome. I hope the vanilla tastes better. If so, I will run back to the store and get a few more while still on sale.
So , there ya have it. New to ME finds. Have you tried any of these products before? What did you think?
