Chasing Davies: Low Fat Wednesday

Low Fat Wednesday

Happy Hump Day! I'm not a real foodie, and don't know the best recipes and such, but I am like, probably, most women and am on a constant quest to eat healthier, wiser and cut calories. So when I discover food tricks, brands or recipes that I think would help me (a non-food expert), I would love to share! So I'm deeming hump days, Low Fat Wednesdays for those kinds of posts.

Has anyone tried Arnold Sandwich Thins?? I learned about these yummy, low carb and calorie, yet filling alternative to a big bready bun or bread slices in Chicago from a few friends. They finally came to my area (KC) a few weeks ago and I can't rave about them enough!
I am a girl that LOVES carbs. Always have, to a fault. So I try to find ways to still satisfy my craving in a healthier manner. For me, these Sandwich Thins in Multi grain or Wheat are perfect.

Try it this way:

Today I hate one, toasted and open-faced with 1/2 a can of tuna and 1/2 a cup of lowfat cottage cheese mixed together on top. Protein wonder.

You could half them, spread with a butter substitute, sprinkle some garlic on top and stick in the oven for a side to your Italian meal.

Use for a typical PB&J. Or use for your deli sandwich (turkey + mustard + pickles = YUM).

Slap a hamburger or chicken from the grill on here to use as a bun.

Whatever the way, you'll feel satisfied. You can find these in the bread aisle, near the hamburger and hot dog buns. They are slightly more expensive, but worth it.

What are you carb weaknesses? What do you do to satisfy your cravings, yet stay healthy??
