I find that buying Kroger brand on most of the healthy items that i buy saves a lot of money. Compare the nutrition label's of your favorite brand to the Kroger brand and see what I mean. Give it a try. I think you will be just as happy with Kroger brand at a much lower cost.

When I'm craving ice cream, I usually buy a pint of Active Lifestyle ice cream. It has less than half the calories of my favorite Ben & Jerry's ice cream (and is usually 1/4 of the price!). There aren't nearly as many flavors, but it's still delicious! My favorite is Vanilla Berry with Granola. :)
I believe Active Lifestyle is a Kroger brand, so you may only be able to buy it if you have access to a Kroger.
I discovered Kroger brand Carbmaster Yogurt awhile ago - and the new flavor "Carrot Cake" makes me feel like I'm eating dessert when I'm not! Yoplait also has "dessert" flavor yogurts that are delicious. Keeps that urge to indulge at bay.
Instead of spending upwards of $4 on Laughing Cow brand spreadable cheese wedges, throw down less than $2 for the Kroger Cowpals Light Swiss Flavored Pasturized Cheese Spreadable Wedges. They're just 30 calories each with 1.5 grams of fat and are just as tasty as the brand name.
For breakfast, I normally scramble an egg and then mix in a chopped up wedge with it.
