Things I Love Thursday #2

This edition of Things I Love Thursday is going to be rather food-heavy; I wanted to share some things that have helped me become more successful!

KIND Healthy Grains: Oats and Honey with Toasted Coconut - 3 PointsPlus/bar

I've been having one of these nearly every morning for breakfast, and they're great! Low in sugar, and 3pp per bar. They're chewy like a granola bar, as opposed to crunchy. Perfect with a smoothie or yogurt and fruit in the morning. In my store, they're on the aisle with all the granola/cereal bars.

Perky Jerky: Sweet & Snappy Turkey Jerky - 1 PointPlus/serving (3 for the whole bag!)

I bought this on a whim when shopping for snacks for our road trips last month, and it's ruined me for all other types of jerky! It is SO delicious and SO tender, and even though a serving is half the bag, you can easily eat the whole bag and not feel bad about it because the whole thing's only 3pp! It is, quite literally, the "BEST tasting jerky on Earth"! It was my first experience with turkey jerky, so I thought maybe all turkey jerkys were this tender; sadly, I was wrong. It's about $5 for the 2.2oz bag, but it is definitely worth it. Your taste buds will thank you! So far I've only seen this variety at Target, though I did see the Plain variety at another store. 

Weight Watchers Creamy Chocolate Smoothie Slim Packs - 2 PointsPlus/pack

I don't normally buy a whole lot of Weight Watchers products at the meetings, but I wanted to try out their new reformulated smoothie mix. Oh my gosh, these are so good! I've been adding them to my Copycat Mocha Coconut Frappuccinos in place of the Walden Farms chocolate, and they add just enough creamy, chocolatey sweetness and make the drink absolutely PERFECT! They are very low in sugar and have 10g of protein, just what I was looking for to add to my drink. (They are only available online or in Weight Watchers centers.)

Weight Watchers Bangin' Buffalo Pretzel Thins - 2 PointsPlus/pouch

Another WW product only available online or in a WW center, but I'm loving these too! I've been bummed ever since they discontinued the chili lime crisps, but I think these will be a great substitute for me! They are so crunchy and a little spicy, and each pouch has a really generous serving.

  1. I will have to look for the turkey jerky. I tried some and didn't enjoy it so I'm willing to give it another shot. And how can you beat three points for the whole bag?!?!

  2. The WW shakes are deicious! I used to drink them when I was on WW. Might have to order some!!

  3. I love the KIND bars. They have a jalapeno one that I really like. I also like their coconut-almond one, but that one is too sweet in my opinion.

  4. I haven't tried those KIND bars, but I do love their other products - thanks for the head's up!

  5. I love the KIND bars - they're my go-to airport snack. :)


Hi, and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I'd love to hear from you!
