    I don't want to come across as snarky but.

    That's basically poultry or seafood/fish.

    Ezekiel flax bread powdered almond butter and sugar free preserves

    @VegjoyP - I too like Ezekiel sprouted bread...have you tried Manna sprouted breads? They are so good - lots of different ones too!

    No because it was the first time eating bread in like 15 years. I've avoided gluten and starchy foods but wanted a hearty healthy option for pb and j. Gluten free breads are over processed and lack much nutrient density. I will look though!

    Wasa hard tack and crackers / cookie wafers. I wonder how safe to eat they might be as they are much different from American crackers, being glazed in a almost gross looking white coating on one side I cant help but wonder do I really want to eat this? But the calories are low and they make a great bread substitute as there is no yeast in them. They seem healthy but are they what the package says they are? Also, price for weight is good as $4 gets you about 20 large size wafers, one package is like a meal all you need is a topping.

    New hot weather obsession:

    1 c silk cashew milk (25)
    Banana (105)
    113gr low fat cottage cheese (60)
    1 oz zero cal syrup
    Few drops vanilla extract
    Huge cup ice cubes

    Process til smooth and icy. Huge mug of ice cream-like happiness for under 200 calories.

    We liked the Jordan’s chocolate mint, with a pinch of instant coffee to “darken” the flavor

    I’m going to try it with the lavender syrup tomorrow

    Talk to me about Grape Nuts, lol. I've been wanting to try them because it looks good but they are a little on the higher calorie side. My favorite cereal is Fiber One original.

    Are Grape Nuts filling and keep you full for a while?

    Did it! The Jordan’s 0-cal lavender syrup wasn’t bad at all. A bit fruity tasting.

    (I keep it around to add to club soda once in a while. )

    No doubt man! Ask and you shall receive the great grape nut knowledge.

    Paired with some fruits like blueberries and my personal choice of unsweetened oat milk, it's quite healthy, tasty and filling to enjoy each morning. Most important however though are the nutritional benefits. I sound like a robotic advertisement right now lol but I find all this stuff quite interesting.

    In a box of grape nuts there are 10 specified servings, each serving one 1/2 cup. One serving has 200 calories, 7g of fiber (1g soluble, 6g insoluble), 6g of protein and a small amount of sugar (5g, no added sugars). There is a small amount of polyunsaturated fat (healthy fat) and no unhealthy fats. The milk I drink also has monounsaturated fat (healthy fat) and no unhealthy fats, as well as no sugars and a good amount of calcium and vitamins. Speaking of vitamins/minerals, one serving of grape nuts is 90% of your daily iron, 80% vitamin b6, 40% thiamin, 90% folate (folic acid), 30% zinc, 10% magnesium, 20% phosphorus, 45% niacin, as well as a small amount of potassium and riboflavin.

    A quick google of Fiber One Original shows one 1/2 cup to contain 60 calories, a small amount of polyunsaturated fat (healthy fat) and no unhealthy fats, 14 grams of fiber (1g soluble and 13g insoluble), no sugar and 2g of protein. Of the vitamins/minerals it shares with grape nuts, it has 25% of your daily iron, 25% vitamin b6, 25% thiamin, 25% folate (folic acid), 25% zinc, 4% magnesium, 6% phosphorus as well as 25% niacin. All of these are substantially lower than what grape nuts offers in the same serving size. However, Fiber One Original also offers 10% vitamin c, 10% calcium, 25% riboflavin, 25% vitamin b12, as well as more than twice the amount of insoluble fiber and no sugar, whereas Grape Nuts has 5g of sugar.

    I think there would be benefits to both cereals, or even mixing them, however I would personally go with grape nuts due to my own body's digestion and needs. I already have a fiber-rich diet so I think it would be too much fiber for me to eat fiber one and not enough calories. Plus the milk I drink provides most of the vitamins that fiber one cereal does and in superior amounts (100% vitamin b12 and 35% calcium for instance).

    Personally, I eat quite a plain diet with very minimal sugar so my taste buds don't require a lot to derive enjoyment from food. I know other people have different preferences with their food. If you try grape nuts and don't like them as much, I would recommend mixing another cereal with grape nuts in order to reap the benefits whilst improving the taste/texture to cater your needs, but honestly for me, it's perfect as is. The milk and fruit yield enough flavor enhancement and the grape nuts are dense, filling and go a LONG way. For me, a box would last generally around 10 days, just as the serving size dictates.

    And that concludes my robotic talk... about the grape nuts B)

    Well I finally tried Grape Nuts yesterday and I love it! I added water to it, nuked it in the microwave for a few seconds so it absorbed it and got mushy, then topped it with monk fruit sweetener (yes, I'm a little odd sometimes, lol). It was great! I'm adding it to my rotations. And although a serving looks pretty small in the cup, you're right it is indeed filling. :smiley:

    1 oreo a day for a snack (60 cals) taken apart so the two sides and the cream middle feels like 3 cookies. :)

    I’ve never tried them warm! I’ll have to.
