happy food: trader joe's blueberry breakfast biscuits
This morning was so busy that by the time I thought about breakfast it was 10 and I was famished. I was at that dangerous point of being myopic. Need. Food. Now. This is when I usually get into trouble foraging through the pantry and I end up with various handfuls of Pirate Booty, a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter and a box of animal crackers. 500+ calories and yet still hungry.
As I stood in the pantry a few minutes ago I came across the box of Trader Joe's Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits I had wisely picked up last week. I made myself a cup of coffee and sat at my desk with a package of the biscuits. With chunks of blueberries and a biscuit that tastes a little cinnamonny/spicy like their infamous Speculoos cookies, it was a satisfying breakfast/snack that took a while to eat. At 210 calories (5 grams fiber, 7 grams fat and 10 grams of sugar) for a serving of four cookies, it wasn't a bad choice. It was delicious, filling and most of all, I didn't feel like I blew my breakfast on a bad choice which can often set me up for a day of bad food choices.
When I fly, I usually pack Trader Joe's individual packets of almonds but in the future, I will be bringing along these biscuits, especially on a red eye flight to give myself a boost of energy before I land.
Trader Joe's Blueberry Biscuits = a total happy food.
