Even though it’s my personal philosophy that if you’re going to have a treat, it should be a really good, high-quality treat in a smaller-than-average portion, especially if you’re trying to lose pounds or maintain a certain number on the scale.
Of course, there are times when a tablespoon of chocolate chips just won’t do and purchasing an entire pint of premium ice cream for just a few bites is more dangerous then it’s worth. For those times, I have a few go-to sweets to tide me over until I’m ready to go for a bigger splurge.
Vitalicious is a company that makes muffins, muffin tops, brownies, and cake mixes. And, the best part is that each yummy carb-y treat contains just 100 calories. But unlike many faux diet foods, Vitalicous contains only natural ingredients, including whole grain flour, organic sugar, egg whites, and cocoa. Even Hungry Girl, Lisa Lillien, has given Vitalicious products her own Hungry Girl seal of approval.
Each Vitalicious treat is low fat, high in fiber (four to seven grams), trans-fat free, protein-packed (four to nine grams), cholesterol-free and low in sodium.
