Sugar Free Saturday – Melanie’s Medley’s Vegetable Cream Cheese

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!

Have you ever tried this?

Sugar Free Saturday – Frozen Lemonade

Okay I must confess, the blog title is misleading because this DOES have .5g of Sugar per serving (and since it makes 4 servings, there are 2g of Sugar total), but it’s very close.

I love Lemonade, it brings me back to a simpler time (called childhood!) and being that I love tart citrus, it hits the spot always. Great way to cool off!
