Summer Time( abs or a gut?)

Diet-friendly things I like:
with summer coming up, and beach season on the minds of many, i thought i'd share a few products that I've come across recently that might be of interest to those watching their diets (IE, all of you, right? :-))
P28 High Protein Bread
This bread is great for those on a restricted carb intake, and for those who have trouble getting in their daily protein intake. Slices are HUGE and satisfying, but with a great nutritional content: 12g carbs, 14g protein, 3.5g fat per slice. could be used as a small healthy snack all by itself, or cut a piece in half and make a great sandwich!
Joseph's Omega 3 Lavash wraps
"Joseph's provides you with a healthy, reduced carb, high protein Lavash bread, now containing Flax, an excellent source of Omega-3! This Lavash has no cholesterol and contains three healthy ingredients: Flax, Oat Bran and Whole Wheat which may help protect your heart, while losing weight!"
I found these at BJ's in the bakery section a few weeks ago, and I'm hooked! they actually do taste good, believe it or not, and are nice and soft - makes a great wrapper for some grilled chicken and spinach!
7g carbs, 5g protein, 2b fat. per 1/2 wrap (trust me, a 1/2 wrap is plenty big to make a great lunch out of - they are really big!)
Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almond Milk
Lactose intolerant? Not a fan of skim milk? Vegetarian? Worried about consuming too much soy? This is the perfect milk for you! with different varieties for different taste buds, and low calories, Almond Breeze has permanently made it's way into our fridge at home!
Unsweetened Vanilla version has only 2g carbs, 1g protein, 3g fat. (monounsaturated fats from almonds are the healthiest fats - your body needs them!)
available at most Tops and BJ's locations
Stoneyfield Farm - Oikos organic Greek Yogurt
Tired of protein shakes? This is the prefect after-workout treat for you! High in protein and very thick and creamy, Greek yogurt is a great way to get in some protein into your body after a tough workout! Delicious and Nutritious!
Available at most grocery stores.
Strawberry flavor has 16g carbs, 13g protein, 0g fat.
There you have it - a few new ideas to keep you on your way to a lean, healthy summer!
