Forget about those ole' Bacos, these are bits of seaweed with a very mild cheese flavor that you could use instead. I really like this concept - this entire package is just 100 calories and 8 grams of fat. However, the cheddar cheese flavor really doesn't come through, but there is a good seaweed flavor. Certainly a healthier alternative. Imported from Korea.

Meal replacement beverages have come a long way since they were first introduced for hospital patients who couldn't digest food. This one has a terrific chocolate flavor, is loaded with vitamins and minerals, to the tune of 35% of the recommended daily value, and has 19 grams of protein. My only complaint is that it has 18 grams of sugars from organic agave and naturally occurring from fruits , and I only wish that was a bit lower.

At first glance you might think that this is a product from Kettle Chips; same look, same package, but these chips are made from beans, both black and navy beans. The Pico de Gallo flavor is terrific and I could honestly see myself snacking on these all the time. They have a third less fat and twice the protein and fiber as the typical tortilla chip.

Finally we're getting back to the basics of coconut water! Just the liquid from the coconut with pieces of real coconut. One can is 120 calories with 560 mg of potassium. This is one of the few coconut waters that is not made from concentrate and and has no sugars added. Athletes have been the major consumers for coconut water, but this product could expand that. And it tastes great!

I've always been a fan of Larabar and their new bar is just as great.  10 grams of protein that comes from almonds and pea protein. The most important thing is that this bar tastes terrific. This company is focused, and always has been, on good nutrition and good taste - try it! You will like it!
