A friend and I were recently venting to each other how we just can’t seem to find a flavored yogurt with a more reasonable amount of sugar – almost all of the brands have 20-something grams of sugar or more per 6-8 oz serving. That is a lot of sugar for such a small amount [...]
Crispy Green’s freeze-dried fruit snacks are shockingly delicious. I say “shockingly” because when I saw “freeze-dried” I didn’t expect such delicious flavor…flavor SO similar to the actual piece of fruit!

Some of the basics & benefits of yogurt: If you want to avoid high sugar content just go with plain! Even the plain varieties naturally have 12 g of sugar. The sweetened have up to 35 g! Greek yogurt, which is much thicker, can contain up to twice the protein of a non-Greek brand, but it has [...]
I have a new favorite snack that is so easy, tasty and healthy. A friend gave me the idea for this a while ago (Thanks, Dana!). Recipe: 1 bag organic plain popcorn (An option: Newman’s Own Organics — go for the no salt, no butter variety) a really good drizzling of extra virgin olive oil [...]
