Now, I'm a firm believer in the "moderation" approach, so completely cutting out all things sugar and sweet is really just a non-negotiable. I can't and won't do it. But I do need to work on the "moderation" thing. And picking the right sweets. So when FitFluential presented the opportunity to test out the new Special K brownies along with the snack bars I recently told you about, well...yes, please.
Planet Box this week when I had to eat dinner at the gym. Perfect size, perfect amount of flavor. Oh, so chewy. They reminded me of these packaged brownies I used to pack in my lunch back in grade school.
I refuse to think about how bad THOSE were for me.
Back to the better choice: Special K brownies come in Divine Fudge and Heavenly Caramel varieties, and if those names alone aren't enough to make you salivate, then I can't even be your friend. (Just kidding, of course. We can be friends.)
A closer look:
Now, you're probably wondering why a personal trainer/health nut is backing boxed brownies.
Explanation: Because "moderation" is my word of choice when I dish out nutrition advice. Restriction isn't in my vocabulary. The more you look at that brownie and say "you get away from me," the more you want it to run right into your mouth. So eat the dang thing. Learn how to incorporate it into your healthy diet.
Luckily, these 80-calorie brownies are perfectly portioned from the get-go, which helps.
You can do it.
