GoPicnic Hummus+Crackers Vegan Ready-to-Eat Meal

by ashley

GoPicnic Vegan Hummus+CrackersI found the cutest pre-packaged lunch today – GoPicnic hummus+crackers. It reminds me of what a healthy American-style bento box might be, which I’ve always wanted to make for myself yet never found the time. It comes with several individually packaged snacks, which can be eaten together or spaced throughout the day. Because everything is well packaged, nothing needs refrigeration (including the hummus), which means you can literally bring this anywhere. I have travelling on the brain right now because of my trip next week, so I’m thinking this would make an awesome meal to bring in your GoPicnic Vegan Hummus+Crackerscarry-on. No more nasty airplane meals! You could also bring this camping, on long car rides…so many possibilities. The variety I chose, hummus+crackers, is only 400 calories total, making it a great lunch/mid-day snack. I’m on a lower calorie diet right now (between 1200-1300 calories per day), so this fits well into the middle of my day. I have been snacking on it for a couple of hours now and feel completely satisfied.

GoPicnic Vegan Hummus+CrackersThey have two 100% vegan varieties to choose from: hummus+crackers and sunbutter+crackers. I found them in my local Nutrition S’mart with a $1 off coupon, bringing the price to just $2.89. That’s an amazing deal for such a healthful and filling meal. I’m excited to try the sunbutter one next time!

Arctic Zero Ice Cream with only 150 Calories a PINT (you heard that right)!

by jem614

By Jessica Michael

Can you imagine eating an entire pint of ice cream and having zero guilt?  The dream has finally come true, Arctic Zone has created this 37 calorie per serving phenom in several different flavors: Vanilla Maple, Cookies and Cream and many more.

We’re not really sure how this little pint only packs 150 calories but we think it’s because they use whey protein instead of milk and cream.  The ice cream itself is tasty but not quite “ice-cream” like.  Instead, it’s a bit like eating a sorbet made with chocolate instead of fruits.  It isn’t creamy unless it’s almost melted but it does the trick regardless.

Seriously, how can you complain about a sweet treat this filling for so little calories?

Our only advice to those out there is to be careful with the Whey Protein as some may be allergic and of course, you vegans will want to stay away and maybe stick to the Sorbet.
