Corey, you would do well to buy some fruit bars to carry with you. They are small and fit in any pocket and they will give you the sugar boost you need without "empty calories".

I DO have some Rice Krispies bars. And I could have done that yesterday or today, since I was picking up a few things!

Cholesterol-lowering foods

Looks like there are few foods that can lower cholestorol and it is good to eat a variety of them:
University of Toronto -- News@UofT -- Cholesterol-lowering foods most effective when combined: U of T study (Mar 8/06) "Cholesterol-lowering foods such as soy protein, almonds, plant sterol enriched margarines, oats and barley may reduce cholesterol levels more effectively when eaten in combination, says a new University of Toronto study by Professor David Jenkins. ... ..."

Rice crispie bars aren't really what I meant. Do you not have Fruit to Go bars in the US? or those Fruit and Veggie bars?

Alix, Thanks for telling us about Fruit Bars. I am not aware of any. Would you tell us more about them. How packaged? Brand name? etc. Thanks

This is the most common brand:

Sun-Rype - these particular ones will probably be hard to find in the US as it's a brand from Kelowna, BC, Canada (my hometown, w00!) in the Okanagan Valley.

It's basically just dried fruit pressed into a bar...did you ever have fruit leather? Same idea, more or less. You could really just carry around a baggy of dried fruits and it would be similar...although not as convenient.

Usually found right near the granola bars in the grocery stores in these parts.
