Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
THE DALAI LAMA
I am so jazzed up about this new snack I was introduced to. I was watching The Today Show and they had Lisa Lillien from Hungry-Girl.com on to share some of her favorite finds. Being as there are two hungry girls in our house, and two hungry boys for that matter, I had to tune in.
I am so glad I did because Lisa shared an amazing go-to snack she chooses.
Evol Bean and Cheddar Burritos
Now you would think that this is more of a meal option, but I liked Lisa’s idea of picking more filling foods as snacks. I would pick a burrito over a granola bar any day.
I have to say for 190 calories, it fit right into my goal range of 150 -200 calories for an afternoon snack.
While browsing around the aisles at Sunflower Market, I spotted a selection of Evol products and knew I had to try Lisa’s recommendation.
After microwaving for a minute, I got to enjoy this…
The mixture of beans and cheese was super tasty, and it was full of protein to keep me full until dinner. I kind of felt guilty eating it as a snack because it was so big, but I got over it real quick.
I even got a little wild and dipped it into a mixture of Greek yogurt and salsa. I would totally recommend it.
Or if you would rather has a sweeter topping, mango salsa is pretty delish.
These are definitely on my grocery list for next week. I even wrote the suggestion down for my co-workers, only to discover that Evol is love backwards. It was quite fitting because I am totally in love with these guys.
What is your go-to afternoon snack?
