2/3 box Wheat Chex 1100 36 g fiber
2/3 box Multi-grain Chex ditto
1 bag Spelt Pretzels 840 calories 38 g fiber

2 bags scharfenberger bittersweet choco baking chunks 680 calories 11g fiber (1360 22)
1 bag scharfenberger semisweet baking chunks 770 calories 11 g fiber
2 squares 280 calories 8 g fiber
Sea salt: caloric contribution negligible. But sprinkle liberally!
