|But I do it in style. Just because you're eating out of a briefcase doesn't mean you have to choose junk food.|
- St. Dalfour French Bistro Three Beans with Sweet Corn - Surprisingly good for a product that looks like it's packaged in a cat food tin. Available at some Whole Foods stores some of the time (hard to get). 280 calories.
- Wild Garden Traditional Hummus - Also surprisingly good for a packaged food (congrats to the Jordanians who produce it). I got hooked on these after finding them in United Airlines Tapas snack boxes, although I've been told that UA has since switched brands. Available in 3-packs at HEB if you can find them; Amazon's unit price tends to be surprisingly high - 2x to 3x grocery retail. 67 calories.
- Stacy's Pita Chips - Pita chips are relatively new to the market and most of them are so overloaded with salt that I literally cannot eat them. This brand seems to be more balanced (I'd vastly prefer whole wheat, but beggars can't be choosers). I don't know where to buy locally - I order single-serve bags by the case from Amazon. 200 calories.
- KIND Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt bar - As near as I can tell, this is the lowest-sugar bar this manufacturer offers. Available in most grocery stores although prices vary widely. 200 calories.
- Perrier. I find that Sam's Club has the best local prices. Zero calories.
Anyway, I thought I'd post this as a counterweight to all the "excitement" about the dual Baskin Robbins - Dunkin Donuts that opened either today or yesterday in League City, depending on which published source you believe.
