A Grocery Store Find!

Hmmmmm...I am walking through the grocery store the other day and look up...why is this stuff always on the high shelves? I see a bag of puffed brown rice. Hmmmmmm....what could I do with this stuff? Now, I am the one who will eat plain spagetti noodles without sauce, or plain cooked rice without seasoning. I love bland comforting (ok, I guess starchy) foods. I decided to try some. (My DD immediately said "Yuk" but she had not tasted it yet).. I tasted it at home and thought, well it reminds me of sugar smacks cereal, without the sugar coating. I tried some in milk, a little soggy, (no sugar crispy coating) but OK. Then I about using this to make whole grain rice krispie treats? Or using it in homemade granola or trail mix? Or, I could just munch on it dry, as I have been doing. I like to snack on crunchy stuff while I am working. This has the texture of Cheeto's without the fat and salt. This might be a healthy alternative! It is made by Alf's, and contains the wheat germ. Try some yourself, and leave a comment if you do!

Hey, another great snack that DD does love is a whole baby dill pickle! I noticed on the label that they are ZERO fat and ZERO calories! Snack away!

**Hey! leave your healthy snack suggestions in a comment!

Thanks for the sponge idea! Sounds good! You are better than me eating that cereal - does not look apetizing, lol. I'm with your daughter on that one..
