I like a little something sweet in the evening, after dinner, as a pleasant little punctuation point to the day. But eating actual dessert every day is not a smart idea, unless I want to go shopping for bigger pants.
Some days, I go for a small dish of nonfat Greek yogurt with a spoonful of fig jam or Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter, others I go for a simple sliced pear. Lately, we’ve been savoring one of these Trader Jacques Fleur de Sel Caramels from Trader Joe’s. Three of them have 170 calories, so you don’t want to pop the things like mints, but savoring one is plenty satisfying. Just one more reason that I love TJ’s.
