Ahhhh. Friday. It has been one of those super long weeks and all I want to do tonight is sit down with a snack, post a blog, and catch up on the million DVR’d shows I have saved. A lot of people have asked me what I eat, especially what I have as a “treat”. Since I am still looking to lose more weight and I have crazy food allergies, my snacking is sort of lame. But tonight it’s my favorite - a chocolate, banana smoothie and a huge bowl of air-popped popcorn. My main food allergies/intolerances are gluten, milk, and soy so learning to make smoothies was interesting. This one is about 4 oz of banana, 3/4 cup of Rice Dream Original Enriched Rice Milk, 1 Tbsp. of Saco Unsweetened Cocoa Powder, 2 Splenda packets, and 8-9 ice cubes. It’s only about 210 calories and once you get used to how awful rice milk is, this smoothie is actually really yummy! The popcorn is a no-brainer. It is gluten free, low in calories (1 cup = 31 calories), and tasty. I don’t mind it plain, but my husband is not a big fan. For him, I spray it with a little cooking spray and then sprinkle with salt. I have not been able to find a soy-free cooking spray. Let me know if you know of any.

Happy snacking.

Thanks for reading. More later…

  1. Mmmmmm....that sounds yummy. When I was pregnant I made a banana, peanut butter chocolate smoothie for breakfast EVERY morning, and never got sick of it. Actually, wishing I had one of those right now.
