Here are Hungry Girl's Top Ten Foods of 2004 (in no specific order). Drumroll, please...
1. Dr. Praeger's Sensible Foods
The Doctor is IN! Doctor Praeger, that is! His line of self-proclaimed sensible foods is AWESOME. Our favorites are his veggie burgers & broccoli pancakes. They're low-cal, low in fat & unbelievably good!
2. Dreyer's Grand Light Ice Cream - Slow Churned
We have no idea why or how slow churning works, but the end result is the creamiest, most delicious 100-120 calorie low fat ice cream we've ever tasted. Reminder: Dreyer's and Edy's are the same company, so your supermarket will carry one or the other, depending on where you live.
3. The Laughing Cow Light Cheese
The perfect alternative to cream cheese, this 35-calorie, 2g of fat spreadable cheese comes in different shapes and sizes -- and all are FANTASTIC! We especially like the cute little Gourmet Cheese Bites.
4. Starbucks Frappuccino Light
Thank goodness Starbucks launched this line of fantastic frozen coffee treats! Now you can enjoy the goodness of real Starbucks frappes for as little as 130 calories for a grande. Go, Starbucks!
Without Vitalicious.com, we would NEVER be able to satisfy our muffin cravings. These 80 - 200 calorie low fat, high-fiber treats come in all flavors, shapes and sizes. They all taste great -- and they're nutritious! An added bonus: You get 5% off if you use promo code "hungrygirl" at checkout!
6. Boca Meatless Lasagna - Chunky Herb & Tomato
Boca, Boca, Boca. What can we say? Your 270-calorie meatless lasagna (with only 5g of fat) has changed our lives. Cheese...sauce...wavy noodles...we're hooked!
7. Minute Maid Light Drinks
We flipped over the 5-calorie lemonade, then tried the rest. All of Minute Maid's light drinks are almost too good to be true. The best are the lemonade, and the Mango Tropical!
8. Wise Choice Snack Chips
Oh, for the love of light and crispy guilt-free potato chips, when will these crunchy 110-calorie masterpieces be for sale online? These are our favorite chip-swaps of all time! They're only for sale in the East coast for now...let's hope that changes soon. Chip chip hooray!
9. Nana's Cookies - Sunflower
We LOVE it when we find stuff that not only tastes AWESOME, but is also low in calories and good for you. Nana's Sunflower Cookie is all of the above! The thing is HUGE and has 200 calories, 8g of fat, 28 carbs and 4g of fiber. Eat half as a snack or a whole one as a meal. It's tremendous!
10. Progresso 99% Fat Free Clam Chowder
Clam chowder with huge chunks of clams and potatoes in a creamy soup can't possibly be guilt-free. Or can it? Meet Progresso 99% Fat Free Clam Chowder. It's perfection in a can! A huge bowl has just 275 calories and under 5g of fat. Clamtastic!
