Aloha Old London - Tasty treats and a chance to win a trip to Hawaii.


Yay a new blog tour!  Of tasty things!  I like those, especially the tasty ones.  We've always enjoyed the Melba snacks (though when I was little, I thought my Grandma Melba had made them; I mean, really, I didn't think two people in the whole world could be named Melba, and she did REALLY like the snacks).

I like them because they are fairly simple, and tasty- crunchy. I mostly have them with hummus, tapenade and/or bruschetta.  Even the flavored ones are light flavor, so they pair easily with other things, but also carry their own weight if you just want to slap on a little cream cheese (and maybe some olives, I really like olives) and call it snack.

Not only are they tasty and crunchy and amazing, but they are healthy, too.  A good way to get your chip fix without the chip fat (and the ucky greasy feeling after). I am one of the lucky people who generally likes the taste of healthy food better- grease just tastes awful in my mouth (with a few exceptions; I am a sucker for funnel cake) but I know not everyone feels the same- most people can't go without their chip fix!  

You can also use the Old London melba toasts, bagel chips and the like with your usual dips, or go with a natural cream cheese or yogurt based dip, or once again I must share my favorite of hummus- so many yummy varieties and all of them delish!  You still get the salt and crunch and burst of yummy goodness, but this way you are putting good stuff into your body.  Try more fruit for your sweet fixes, maybe dipped in yogurt or put some simply fruit spread on your cream cheese.

The divas just love when you don't have to make sacrifices to do something good for yourself, and Old London snacks help us to do just that.  What's not to love?

How do you guys eat healthy without giving up flavor?  What is your favorite good for you food, or the junk food you are having the hardest time giving up?  What are some small steps you take to keep healthy-  do you park at the end of the lot and walk across instead of looking for the closest space or take the stairs instead of the elevator?  Dance around when you are dusting?  Skip with your kids?  Inquiring divas want to know.

And now for the exciting part- Old London is giving away a 4 day 3 night all expenses paid trip for two to Oahu, Hawaii  with tons of extras - see here for details.

You will be really glad you switched to healthier snacks when you don your bikini and do the hula if you are the winner- trust me on this.
