Snacktiiiime! It’s crunchy. It’s sweet. It’s easy, and diabetic-friendly!
Spread a tablespoon of cream cheese on 2 graham cracker squares and top with 1/4 cup halved grapes – grapes are a great source of potassium and are low on the Glycemic Index!
I love this because I love all of the items separately, together you get a perfect world of sweet, creamy, and crunchy!
How does this combination sound to you?
A couple of weeks ago, I was craving a bagel with veggie cream cheese. I rarely eat cream cheese (I just as rarely eat bagels!), so a splurge once in a while doesn’t bother me, but cream cheese is so incredibly unhealthy, that even a one time splurge gives me pause. But the craving was so strong…
Enter Melanie’s Medley’s Vegetable Cream Cheese! With no artificial ingredients, and NO SUGAR, I was excited to give this one a try!
In comparison to Philly’s Vegetable Cream cheese, the differences are VAST… Philly’s does only have 1 gram of sugar, but it also only contains 2 grams of protein… Melanie’s has no sugar and boasts 8 grams of protein – a huge difference!
This is a great example of how you can still enjoy those splurges and make them count, and work for you.. not against you!
