Sweet potatoes are healthy. They're packed with Vitamin A, and are fairly low in calories. That's why we recommend Ian's Sweet Potato Fries to satisfy any french fry craving you may have. These frozen finds are completely natural and contain nothing but sweet potatoes and soybean oil. And, if baked in the oven using non-stick spray, each serving has just 1 point. Even if you break down (as we often do) and have TWO servings, you'll take in just 140 calories (3 points)! Pair these with a dressed up Boca Burger on a light bun and you can have yourself a healthy, 250 - 375 calorie, low fat burger & fries meal with about 5-7 points! Ronald McDonald, eat your heart out!
Today is May 5th -- Cinco de Mayo -- the perfect day for a Tamale Pie, no? Si! Especially since this Tamale Pie has just 150 calories (and 2 points, if you're counting). This organic, unbelievably delicious, authentic Mexican treat is a yummy mix of pinto beans, corn, zucchini and crushed tomatoes, all topped with a light polenta. Yum! This is one of our favorite things to come out of Amy's magical kitchen (and that's saying something because we REALLY love Amy's). Try one of these low fat, high fiber frozen treats...they're the perfect light lunch, snack, or a GREAT addition to any dinner. Fantastico!
Forget Funyuns. Forget onion rings. Forget those ghastly, crunchy, greasy, fried canned onion things you use for cooking. Landau's Onion Crisps have arrived, and they're your one stop swap for everything fried, greasy and oniony! These crunchtastic low fat treats are good alone as a snack, crushed on salads, or even as a low cal topping on your green bean casseroles. Brought to us by our friends who make Potato Poppers (mmmmm...Potato Poppers), these secret treats are hard to find, but can be purchased online at yummydelights.com. Pssst...use promo code "hungry20" for 20% off your onion crisps.
Lipton Green Tea To Go, Mandarin & Mango
(0 Calories, 0g Fat, Less than 1 Carb, 0g Fiber, 0g Protein)
"To Go" pouches of powdered drinks are all the rage. Just pour crystals into your water, shake, and you've got yourself a refreshing and tasty beverage. Our new favorites are Lipton's line of Green Tea To Go. Their Mandarin & Mango will turn your plain old bottled water into a delicious, tropical, green tea paradise! These slim packets fit perfectly into any purse (even teeny tiny evening bags!). They're also packed with 80 milligrams of flavenoid antioxidants, which help protect your body against cell-damaging free radicals. Even though we don't recommend drinking this in place of regular water, we think these are a better choice than diet soda, for those times when you need a fruity pick-me-up. Tea-rific!
Tropical Tea...To Go!
CHEW ON THIS: Today, May 5, is National Hoagie Day. Pop into Subway to celebrate, but do the right thing and order a 6" turkey, with lettuce, tomato & mustard. Leave the mayo and cheese for everyone else...
