Muffin Tops and Nuts!

Hello Friends...and Family :)
I know I have not posted in a while, but during the summer, I don't cook...or diet very much! I am, however, much better when the weather cools down (and the kids go back to school) about exercising and eating better.
I have found the "Straw in the Haystack" that I have been looking for. What's that mean? Well, I have a GINORMOUS sweet tooth! I know that is not good, especially when I see my little Hershey Kiss eating four year old! :o
Back to the "Straw". Have you ever tried Vitatops? They are muffin tops that are kept in the freezer and I LOVE them! They have only 100 calories and are way bigger than most 100 calorie items. They also have 9 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein.
I get one out of the freezer and it takes 30 minutes to thaw at room temperature. Here is my way of thinking. I love them so much, I will wait for them, so when I get hungry and would normally eat Hershey Kisses, Cheezeits, Little Debbie Cakes, Chips, etc. (the afternoon binge time), I truly just drink water and wait thirty minutes for it to thaw. Works for me. It is all I eat and I got more water in while I was anxiously waiting.
It is a method of "trickery", people. Try it sometime. You can fool your body! You just have to be very creative!
Check them out HERE.
Have you tried these? Did you like them as much as I do?
Let me know!!
BUT WAIT....we did not talk about nuts!! :)
I have introduced you to my afternoon snack. Now, meet my Breakfast!
Luna Bar "The Whole Nutrition Bar for Women"
I really like these for breakfast! The White Chocolate Macadamia is my favorite, but I really like them all!
This bar has 190 calories, 3 grams fiber and 9 grams of protein. They are also 70% organic.
Have you tried these?
Check them out HERE.
This is just two of the items I have found that are worth talking about while I try to get myself back on track!!
Give me feedback! What gets you through the moments when you could actually "eat a horse"?

Thanks for looking!

Good to see a new post from ya!
May I say that I, too, love Vitatops? I discovered these a while back. They are expensive, and they do cause me a tad bit of abdominal "discomfort"!
Anyway, I'm sure my sweet tooth could kick your sweet tooth's booty! HA!
