So you’ve made a New Years Resolution. Perhaps you realize summer will be here eventually. Perhaps for health or personal reasons you realize that it’s time to drop a few pounds. There are plenty of diet programs out there. One I’m most critical of is Jenny Craig. Not that it’s a bad program, but it’s expensive. It also goes against the philosophy of “Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish you feed him for a lifetime.” You are never really taught how to cook. Plus their food is quite expensive and some can even be confused with pet food visually. Since adding time to a set 24 hour day isn’t going to happen, you may need to rely on certain things being already made for you. Maybe it will give you time back in your day or give you just a few more minutes at the gym. So I’ve pulled together of (most) of my reviews and complied a calorie count for each item if you plan on Dieting at Trader Joe’s….
The pros: Trader Joe’s Brownie Crisps is an easy way to get your chocolate fix. Vegan & gluten free if that is important to you. $2.99 which is reasonable for something in the snack aisle. Another nice alternate for making yourself a 100 calorie snack.
The cons: A bit gritty or grainy in texture. Smells like a brownie, tastes like a crisp chocolate cookie. A lot of my crisps were broken from their original square shape.
The verdict: …
