Anyone who has read my blog knows I'm a big Trader Joe's fan. If we ever do get to go on the road, our Alfa will be well stocked with Joe's goodies, and we are very encouraged to see new locations around the country being added.
I particularly like their vacuum packed items, both frozen and refrigerated because they can be kept for future meals. Although I have given up all wine, their Charles Shaw $2.00 wines were a good buy.
The other day as we were checking out at our local Trader Joe's I spotted a display of FIBERFUL fruit bars. In the mood for a little snack I read the label and immediately bought a couple.
I thought "If these things tasted at all good they were a real find!" And they did, just a little something to counter that urge to get a candy bar or if at home reach for the cookies.
FIBERFUL bars are a 7 oz. fruit "leather" made with unsweetened dried fruit, psyllium, flax seed and inulin. Having never heard of inulin before I Googled it. It seems there are pluses and minuses to it, and absolute food purists may say no. Best to read about it yourself.
But for me, they are a find. 60 calories, 14 g carbs, 6 g fiber, tasty, and only $.59 each.
On the RV front. We have decided to cancelled our trip next week because of some unexpected material costs on the home improvement projects. Skipping the trip was my idea. The weather is "iffy" next week anyway.
On the subject of a towed: I think we are just going to get new tires for the Prius. Craig is too busy to think about car shopping right now, and he was encouraged by the fact that Annie said she heard Prius batteries rarely need replacement.
