Lovely low-carb treasures

One of the greatest challenges in going low-carb is the "sweet" end of the food spectrum. You can only eat so much Splenda, and you really shouldn't eat much aspartame. So, I've resorted to buying cans of that pressurized whipped cream (e.g. Redi-Whip). Previously, most nights when I needed a little something sweet, you'd find me stretched out on my couch with the TV glinting off the can as I tipped it up to my mouth and shot whipped cream into my mouth....keeeershhhh!

No more. Now, there are the Tofutti Hooray Hooray bars.

Also making big splashes in my pantry and refrigerator lately are the I.M. Healthy Low-Carb Soy Nut Butter, and Blue Bunny Lite 85 yogurts. And, if I'm feeling extravagant, the Atkins Endulge Peanut Butter Cups aren't cheap, but are remarkably close to Reese's...well, kinda.

So, the journey continues. Slightly sweeter for these new findings. :)
