I have been cursed with one of the worse snack habits. It's not that I crave chocolate or chips, it's just that I eat when I'm nervous, bored, stressed or frustrated. When Miss M was born, I was battling the typical new mom problems and had a very difficult time since none of my family lived anywhere near and visits were sparse. While I never adopted the 'nothing should go to waste so eat whatever the child doesn't eat' habit, I did still find myself snacking a lot.
Yes, I like chips and chocolate, but I've tried to find healthier snack options like cheese sticks and granola bars. Then in swoops Mom Central with their Special K blog tour. Yeah, yeah, eat Special K for breakfast and lose weight. I've heard it all before. I continued to read "90 calories and eight grams of whole grain per 17 crackers " Oh? The tour is for crackers? Heck yeah, count me in! That's snack food!
My package arrived and included boxes of Special K Italian Tomato and Herb crackers and Special K Multi-Grain crackers in the 90 calorie packs. When I saw the multi-grain ones, I immediately thought "Oh, Special K's version of Wheat Thins. Whoopee." Given a choice, Wheat Thins would not be on the top of my list. So I tried the Italian Tomato and Herb ones first.
