I'm baaaaack :)

Sorry I have been MIA. This week was CRAZY busy at work.

So, I got a lot of goodies this week, which cheered me up!

First off, CLEAN CRAVINGS sent me some of their pizza crusts and pizza to sample. These were absolutely delicious. I have yet to try the pizza, but I tried the rosemary crust with some hummus and eggplant and it was YUM!

Clean Craving crusts are gluten free. One regular plain crust has 160 calories, 1.5 grams fat, 34 grams carbs and 2 grams protein.

Ingredients:WHOLE GRAIN ORGANIC BROWN RICE FLOUR, WHOLE GRAIN SORGHUM FLOUR, ARROWROOT FLOUR ORGANIC RAW AGAVE NECTAR, GUAR GUM, FRUIT JUICE (GRAPE, PEAR, APPLE), RICE DEXTRIN (A NATURAL AND UNMODIFIED STARCH), ORGANIC OLIVE OIL, SEA SALT.

I also tried these yummy bars from Small World Beauty. Finally a bar that provides 18 g of superior protein. Contains ZERO sugar, ZERO artificial sweeteners, ZERO hydrogenated oils, and ZERO preservatives. These bars are gluten free too! They’re even perfect for “carb conscience” dieters with only 2 g of Net Carbs.

One bar has 200 calories, 7 grams fat, 24 grams carbs, 0 grams sugar, 21 grams sugar alcohol, and 18 grams protein.



CLICK Protein Powder
And I was super delighted to get this huge tub of espresso protein powder samples from Click!

One of these jars has 14 large 12-14 ounce servings. no artifical colors or flavors. And you can enjoy it hot or cold.

2 scoops has 120 calories, 1.5 grams fat, 12 grams carbs, 7 grams sugar and 15 grams protein.



I made an espresso banana ice cream using this yummy protein powder! I blended a banana, the protein powder, some ice and water.




Last, but not least. Remember the awesome people at Penny's Desserts that send me muffin tops and cookies to sample. They have new no sugar added cookies that are so yummy. They sent me no sugar added chocolate truffle cookie and no sugar added cinnamon toffee cookie. I had the chocolate truffle so far and it was delicious! Can't wait to try the cinnamon toffee cookies. At only 100 calories, these are an awesome sweet treat!
