You know the old saying: it's not what you know, but who you know? Well, I've got a twist on that saying for you today. How about this: It's not what you know but who you know about? Today, I'm going to introduce you to a company you're definitely going to want to check out.
Several months ago, one of my assistants came back to the office after running some errands carrying a sample of snacks. It was a bag of Zesty Cheddar Cheese snacks. The amazing thing about it was the small number of carbohydrates and calories contained in it. We readied ourselves for the taste of cardboard and texture of dried-out popcorn while opening the bag. But amazingly, these snacks weren't too bad! In fact, we ended up jumping online and taking advantage of a discount that came with the free sample, ordering a 10--bag sample pack. There are five flavors of snacks including Italian Herb, White Cheddar, Zesty ranch, Cinnamon, and honey bbq. Each has 8-9 carbs net.
Even better than the snacks, we found a whole line of energy drinks at this site. I have to confess that I've never drank a whole can of Red Bull or Jolt and was recently shocked to be on an airline that actually charges $3 per can for the sugar and caffeine-laden brew. But, there's no question that lots of people do drink the stuff, and many similar energy drinks. What I found here though is a virtually no-calorie, no sugar drink with vitamins and nutrients that give you the boost instead of sugar and caffeine. Flavors come in Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry, and each flavor contains only 2 carbs net.
So what is this miracle company? No, this isn't an introduction for a network marketing company or anything like that. You might find such things elsewhere on this blog, but not here. It's a company whose products are available online, at any Walgreens, or at pretty much any other chain drugstore. It's called Extendbar and you can visit their site at http://www.extendbar.com. Check them out, you'll love them!
As a sidenote, Extendbar also publishes a magazine for people with diabetes. It's not free, but if it's anything like their products, it could be worth a read. I'm going to subscribe to it and will let you know my thoughts about it after one or two issues.
Happy eating and drinking!
