belVita Breakfast Biscuits

Have you guys seen those belVita commercials with Snooki and Deena?

I’ve been wanting to try them for weeks and my mom bought a box! (Hmm, now I wonder if she watches Jersey Shore…)IMG_6890

Each little pack has 4 cookies. So, the calorie count seems a little higher than a granola bar but it’s more food.IMG_6891

Ingredients:IMG_6893

Sadly, they are really good! I was hoping they weren’t but now I’m forced to take the box for myself SmileIMG_6853 (800x600)

I messed with my SLR on the way to my mom’s. It took a while to get a decent pic.IMG_6840 (800x532)

My mom, Ben and Matt went to a museum while I ran errands. When I got back they were having a feast! They decided to throw a last minute party because we have family in from Arizona.

Ceviche to start…IMG_6880 (800x600)

Beans, rice, salad, carne asada, guacamole and tortillas for dinner.IMG_6887 (800x600)

And my family brought a ton of desserts. I’m trying to abstain so I had a Vitatop. The Chocolate Pudding Cake is calling my name. Stay strong, Monica.IMG_6883 (800x600)

I’m blogging from my mom’s and need to be the DD home now. See ya later!

    Seems like a lot of calories for not a lot of protein & fiber :-/ I’d stick to the real thing and bake a batch of chocolate chip instead!!

    Also it looks like you have a giant mushroom on your plate, which you neglected to mention. I happen to like mushrooms… just sad you ignored it :(

    I feel like I’m being really critical! Sorry :) I’m a fan, just started reading your blog! Love all the pictures!

      Hi Kate,

      Welcome to RER :)

      Yeah, totally an oversight with not mentioning the mushroom. I actually ate 2 of them too!

      I eat plenty of protein and fiber throughout the day. No worries. And I’m trying to avoid sweets for Lent or I’d be all over the desserts.

    I looked at those at the grocery store the other day and put them back. Maybe I should pick them up again!

    Something I wouldn’t eat often, but a good snack in my office desk. Or something to leave in the car – they wouldn’t melt!

    There is certainly a lot of sugar in those things: sugar, evaporated cane sugar, malt syrup, and invert sugar (?? whatever that is).
