What I'm Loving: Healthy grocery store finds

Happy middle of the week ladies!

I've mentioned before that Corey and I re-devoted ourselves to fitness and healthy eating about a year and a half ago, when we were preparing for the wedding and I'd gained ten pounds in grad school and he'd gained ten pounds living in a colder climate. ;)

We don't eat healthy all the time and don't guilt ourselves about having the occasional burger or a couple slices of Hoboken's amazing pizza but we do try to make healthy choices as much as possible. I stumbled across some products recently that are just too good (and good for you) not to share.

Special K's flatbread breakfast sandwiches. I have been loving this ham, egg, and pepper jack cheese sandwich. Its only 200 calories and I pop it into the microwave for a minute and half and then am out the door on my way to work.

Sitting almost right beside the breakfast flatbreads, were Kashi's blueberry waffles. We both love waffles and I had a personal trainer years ago when I competed in pageants who swore by anything Kashi so I picked up a package of these. I was a little skeptical about whole grain waffles but these were as good, if not better, than any other brand of frozen waffle. Bonus: only 150 calories and loaded with fiber. Corey and I each ate one, with just about a tablespoon of light syrup, and a side of fresh fruit.
The real winner of our grocery shopping trip was Sensible Portions Pita Bites. They come in a variety of flavors - we chose the garlic and chive and they are only 120 calories for 9 chips. They're a very good size so 9 chips would be a lot of chips! These are flavorful and light and so delicious. I've been eating 3 chips, 4 or 5 carrots, and about 2 tablespoons of hummus as a snack and it is quickly becoming a favorite. It is also a really filling, satisfying snack for only about 100 calories.
I also picked up a box of Skinny Cow ice cream bars because they really are so creamy and good for only 100 calories.

What are some of your favorite healthy (or healthier) finds?
