Think Mint & Lemon Meringue Pie

Mint and Lemon Meringue Pie ?  Don’t worry!

I did not make a mint lemon meringue pie!!

The only thing these 2 things have in common is they are both flavors that I LOVE!!!  2 of my favorite products are made with these flavors!!  They are healthy, low sugar or sugar free, delicious, heavenly, yummy and tasty!  The makers of these 2 wonderful products are not paying me to say great things ~  I genuinely love them and want to share my favorite things with you!  These 2 products are my assistants in  my attempt at eating more heart healthy!


MetroMint  Peppermint Water

real mint.  unsweetened.

I discovered Metromint water 2 years ago… and I have been addicted ever since!

Tiny confession ~  (sorry metromint) =)  They do have many many flavors of mint water, lemon, orange, chocolate, spearmint, and a red bottle (cranberry?)  … I only love this one flavor!  Prices range from $1.25 to $1.99 a bottle.  I like to buy them on sale at Safeway for 4 for $5.  World Market also carries them in packs – which takes the price down to $1.25 a bottle also!  I usually cut the bottle in 1/2 or 1/3 and top up with plain cool water.  Sometimes I am not in the mood for the strong minty taste … and I feel better about the price that way on a single income!  =)  But there are days that I just want the strong minty taste and drink it straight up!  I often ‘force’ my friends to try it when they visit me!!  I have had a few converts!!  If you like mint ~  give this water a try ~  I LOVE that it is not only delicious and refreshing but it is sugar free!!  Huge plus!!

Lemon Meringue Pie ~ not exactly!  =)

Yoplait makes these amazing Delights Parfait yogurts!  I have tried 3 of the flavors ~ again ~ I only love the Lemon Torte!   100 Calories ~ Lowfat Yogurt.  I am not a huge fan of  processed sugar substitutes ~ in moderation it is “OK” in my diet ~ especially when I love love love the taste!  Yogurt has so many benefits that I could not resist trying it ~ and I am so glad I did!!  It has become a daily treat!  Yep ~ treat!  It is so yummy it is like having dessert!  I am currently trying to drop some weight off my ‘middle’ ~ doctors orders~ my cholesterol is WAY too high~!  Dr. Oz on RealAge.com recently promoted that eating 2 yogurts a day can help you loose weight… so I am giving this a try!  (the problem is I have to behave with the rest of my diet!  ha ha!)  Anywho~  The delights are carried in most grocery stores 4 for $3.99 – but I always buy them on sale!  =)  3 for $5.  or 2 for $4. are the lowest I have found them at Safeway and Fred Meyer! Oh – Wanna see the picture now??

Speaking of these 2 yummy food products ~ I think I am going to go have a slice of toast and a lemon delight!  =)

Yeah!!  My post hit the web by 9:15 am!!  Good for me!  baby steps to getting ahead of the game!

Today we have sunshine in Washington!  The weather man even said we might hit 60 degrees!!  Since we don’t “get”” to have any snow this year ~   I love it!

Just Jenn~

    I love the delights as well in berry flavor. 🙂

    I’m very picky about mint and lemon flavors.

    That water sounds good. I’m not sure if it’s available here. My favorite herb is mint!

    I love Yoplait Light Yogurts – there are a ton of flavors, but my favorites are banana cream pie and pineapple upside downcake – yummy!!!! I haven’t tried the delights.

    I have never heard of that water! Sounds… um… weird. But, I can see how it would be good. 🙂 I have never actually tried lemon yogurt, but now that I think about it, that is strange because I love lemon everything. I’m just so addicted to Tillamook Creamery Vanilla Bean Yogurt that I never try anything else. I shall have to try these. 🙂

    I must admit when I saw the title, I thought you made a mint lemon pie, lol. I’ve never heard of the water, but that sounds good. I love those yogurts!

    The yogurt sounds good, and I’m not a yogurt person!
    You have a little something over at my place, come see!

    Wow, both products sound delicious. I really don’t think I will be able to find them in my itty bitty rural area though. Believe me though, I will be keeping my eyes open.
    Wanted to say thanks for visiting my blog. I would love to be able to exchange postcards with you. I am not sure if you have tried emailing, but I haven’t received anything. Here is my email address if you would like to try again: waidekaren@gmail.com. If I don’t get back to you within a day of you trying, please contact me back on the blog so I can figure out what is going wrong. I am now following you as well 🙂
