Fantantastic Food Find Friday!

I'm a snacker...plain and simple. I don't like large meals and therefore I eat small snacks all day long for sustained energy. And when I snack, I prefer food that doesn't take much preparation and that is easily thrown in my bag to take with me wherever I go. I am tempted just as much as the next person to munch on a bag of M&Ms or a can of Pringles, but have found a few foods that satisfy my sweet tooth and my salty cravings for a fraction of the calories and fat and that have added health bonuses.

The Food Find:

Kashi Honey Sunshine Cereal

The Facts:

This light, crunchy and slightly sweet cereal is perfect for snacking. With only 100 calories per 3/4 cup, it is low in sugar (6 grams) and fat (1.5 grams), plus packs in whopping 22% of the recommended fiber intake (6 grams of the recommended 25 grams a day). Also, the cereal is made with whole grains which are awesome because they reduce cholesterol, the risk of heart disease, certain cancers, and diabetes, plus aid in digestion.

Spice it up!

I like to combine 3/4 cup Kashi Honey Sunshine Cereal with 2 tablespoons dried cranberries and 22 lightly salted almonds...yummy!

Until next Friday...Enjoy!


  1. Hi Erin,

    Love the blog. Love the idea of E.H. Fitness! I've put a link to your blog up on mine. Hope things are well and hope to see you soon.

  2. Sounds good. I also recently discovered Kashi Go Lean. It has 13 grams of protein and 10 of fiber. It is kind of hard to snack on dry as the "kernals" are kind of small. But with fresh blueberries and almond is a tasty and filling breakfast or snack!
