Indulge in Hungry Girl's "Top Ate" diet-friendly green treats. (Pssst...they are in no particular order)
1. Crispy Delites Crispy Celery Chips
Crispy Delites' veggielicious chips are awesome. Unlike most other veggie chips (which are, in fact, about as bad for you as regular potato chips), Crispy Delites' chips are baked not fried. The result? Their veggie chips are light, not greasy, and completely diet-friendly. In honor of St. Paddy's Day, we recommend trying their 100% Natural Celery Chips. With just 105 calories and 2.5g of fat per serving, you can't go wrong with these crunchy green snacks.
2. Andersen's Split Pea Soup
Andersen's Split Pea is everything split pea soup should be. It's thick, rich, creamy, and, best of all, has only 130 calories and no fat per 1 cup serving. This healthy and hearty green soup is a perfect lunch or dinner on a chilly day.
3. Mann's Shredded Broccoli Cole Slaw
This package of shredded broccoli, carrots and purple cabbage is AWESOME! Why? Because not only is it insanely healthy, but it's also one of the most versatile food finds ever. Steam it and shriptz with "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" spray, toss it into salads, chop it up and mix it into a tuna salad, or even throw it into your tortilla-wrapped sandwiches. You can do almost anything with it! And an entire bag of the stuff is just about 125 calories, so you can munch on it all day long!
4. Lipton Green Tea To Go, Mandarin & Mango
What could be more festive on St. Patrick's Day than drinking green tea? Lipton's "to go" pouches of the stuff make doing so super-convenient. Just pour crystals into your water, shake, and you've got yourself a refreshing and tasty beverage. Their Mandarin & Mango will turn your plain old bottled water into a delicious, tropical, green tea paradise! Tea-rific!
5. Yoplait Light Thick and Creamy, Key Lime Pie
Yoplait's new line of Light Thick & Creamy yogurts are amazingly thick and luscious. One of our faves is their Key Lime Pie flavor. Just tart enough, this 100 calorie, 0g fat container of cool 'n creamy yogurt hits the spot.
6. Baja Bob's Sour Apple Sugar Free Martini Mix
It's St. Patrick's Day, so whip up a 100 calorie "Green-tini" using this 10 calorie mix, a shot of vodka and a squeeze of lime. It'll be beautiful, delicious and guilt-free!
7. Tootsie Caramel Apple Pops
Ok, so you have to enjoy the brownish gooey caramel outer layer to get to the green apple center, but that's something you'll just have to live with. These 70-calorie, less-than-one gram of fat pops are one of America's best-kept secrets. We'd like to spread the word.
8. Dreyer's Slow Churned Light Ice Cream, Mint Chocolate Chips!
We all scream for green ice cream. Especially if it has bits of chocolate mixed in. Mmmmmm! With 120 calories in 1/2 cup, it's a perfectly sweet, low fat way to celebrate St. Paddy's day.
****Of course we also love the following super-healthy green foods: artichokes, sugar snap peas, granny smith apples, romaine lettuce, spinach & broccoli. Eat at least SOME of those today.
CHEW ON THIS: Leafy green vegetables are loaded with antioxidants, minerals, folate, and flavonoids. These all work to prevent free radicals from damaging cells. Eat your greens!
