Six Pack Bags Sauces

I’m always looking for lower calorie condiment options (keeping in mind that I actually want to USE it, not just put a quarter teaspoon on my food!) 

I am not, let me say upfront, associated with Six Pack Bags, so no one put me up to sharing… But I did see their sauce profiles recently and though they sounded pretty snappy.  

I have a super sensitive system so even if I wanted to go crazy and try something different, I can’t really.  So I appreciate knowing what ingredients are being used, but also that there are options to spice up otherwise boring food.

The Mango Serrano sounds up my alley – sweet and spicy – and I bet it would work well on whatever protein you choose, frankly.

One of the best things about these is that they are very low calorie (zero calorie doesn’t mean there aren’t any – magically – in the bottle, by the way.  There ARE, but they are under 4 or 5 calories a serving, so using these mindfully certainly isn’t going to sabotage your diet.  With hot sauce, a little goes a long way also.)

These sauces are also gluten free, low in sodium, and free of MSG. I try to avoid sauces when I’m out because I never really know what’s going into them.  I also like that I can taste my food, as opposed to a heavy sauce.  BUT, I like flavor as much as anyone and love that there are some options with not a lot of “stuff” on the label, and a lower calorie profile (which means I can worry less about the sauce and more about the quantity and substance of my meal.) The idea shouldn’t be that we can’t enjoy our food, or that we can only have a little of it, right!?

 

No 7 Glow

I love checking blogs from overseas because inevitably I’ll see a product that I’ll adore…and hope it comes stateside.  If it doesn’t hit our shores, I will defer to eBay UK, or whatever other country I might have to!  I love Asian skincare so I’m ever doing just that.

There is an abundance of chubby sticks these days, whether for contouring, highlighting, or adding color…and personally, I love it.  It makes life a heck of a lot easier, and the whole “I-had-a-great-nights-sleep-of-course-I’m-not-tired-or-aging” bright-eyed look PORTABLE.

Brilliant.

The brand No 7 is indeed here in the US, and can be found in Ulta, Wallgreens, Target, and online at Drugstore.com… But it does so happen that some of the product overseas are a bit different – that’s often the case, whether from full-fledged formulations to packaging differences.  I’m sharing for the reason that you may decide you want to look for the others, wherever you may be!  

The No 7 Pop & Glow is not only adorable…but it kind of looks edible.  DON’T eat it…but you know what I mean?!  They actually do remind me of Spring and Summer sorbets, so the mango one is aptly named.  Watermelon works too, and evokes the image of uber-sweet jolly ranchers.  Reallyree has some comments and swatches here.

 

The Pop & Glow DUO appears to not be here (at least as yet) but it’s is especially delicious looking, and you can find it at Boots online.  It comes in Sunrise Glow (pictured) and Sunset Glow.  The Imperfect Beauty Queen posts a review with swatches here.
