Cheating the System

In my recent attempts to become healthier/still be a fat kid, I’ve found a few absolutely delicious standout winners:

1. Yoplait Whips in Cherry Cheesecake. I’ve always been under the jaded impression that there is no way yogurt can replace and provide the sort of fulfillment that sweets do, like the commercials seem to indicate. HOWever, I found this one, specific flavor that does actually taste like you are eating cheesecake filling in a plastic can. Seriously bueno.

2. Snapea Crisps. They are salty, crunchy, yummy, addictive and allegedly made from snap peas. I highly recommend the black pepper and Caesar variety. The lightly salted leaves something to be desired and I have yet to try the wasabi ranch.

3. Kombucha Wonder Drink. Granted, every kombucha tea on the market smells like fermeted “oops I forgot that apple juice in my car for three months in the heat,” and some even taste that way. Well, this brand – specifically the Asian Pear & Ginger – is a little less pungent. It’s a little weird at first, but the addiction slowly builds as you have this tasty, carbonated experience not all that dissimilar from a hard cider. And there’s all these weird health claims and cool packaging to have you silently justifying paying $2+ a bottle.

  1. Have you tried chobani flips? I tried the key lime this week and I have been dreaming of it since. Yes, I am still dreaming of and would prefer ice cream, but this is a step in the right direction.
