New Kids on the Shelves
Cedarlane All Natural Green Chile, Cheese & Ranchero Sauce Egg White Omelette PER SERVING (1 omelette): 240 calories, 10g fat, 700mg sodium, 21g carbs, 2g fiber, 5g sugars, 18g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*
Getting up early is no fun, so we understand if you don't want to cook a huge gourmet breakfast first thing in the A.M. But don't skip your morning meal altogether! This heat 'n eat omelette is SO amazingly good, we'll give you an F if you don't try it.
Amy's Hearty Spanish Rice & Red Bean Organic Soup PER SERVING (1/2 can): 140 calories, 2.5g fat, 690mg sodium, 24g carbs, 5g fiber, 3g sugars, 5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
We're big fans of most Amy's products, so this new soup totally caught our attention. The hearty part is right on. It's thick and super filling -- almost like chili or stew. It has high-fiber brown rice (which we love) that's seasoned Spanish style, plus loads of veggies. Welcome to HG school, soup!
Lightlife Smart Wings, Buffalo PER SERVING (4 wings): 110 calories, 3g fat, 680mg sodium, 6g carbs, 4g fiber, <1g sugars, 13g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
Lightlife gets pretty creative with its faux-meat products, and this one rules. This buffalo wing knock-off is best with a little fat-free ranch dressing (we like to make our own by stirring 1/3 tbsp. dry ranch seasoning mix into 1/3 cup fat-free sour cream). FYI, there's also a Honey BBQ version!!!
MorningStar Farms - The MF people are churning out new foods like it's their job... which is good, because it IS their job. But seriously, not only have they debuted two fantastic frozen veggie entrées -- Lasagna with Sausage-Style Crumbles and Sweet & Sour Chik'n -- but they've also rolled out the completely unique, meat-free Grillers Turk'y Burgers. WHOA. Click here for more deets. And easy, veggie people... You're setting the bar pretty high!
Mann's Sunny Shores Rainbow Salad - Frequently overshadowed by its uber-popular sibling, Broccoli Cole Slaw (#1 MVP 2009), this cauliflowered-up shredded veggie mix has got it going ON. You can pretty much use it anywhere you use broccoli slaw. The stats are virtually identical. And you can tell we love the stuff, because we've got our HG logos ALL OVER the packaging!
If this were high school, these items would be up for prom king & queen...
CHEW ON THIS: April is National Soyfoods Month. (For those of you who aren't really awake yet, it's April right now... And yes, "soyfoods" really is one word.) Click here for some great soy/veggie picks and recipes!
Fact! If you wanted to say, "I am hungry," in Spanish, you wouldn't say, "SOY hambre." You'd say, "TENGO hambre." We know this little language lesson has nothing to do with edible soy, but click "Send to a Friend" anyway!
