Hungry Girl Today: 12.11.09
Silent Night isn't really our style, so today we're loudly yapping about our
TOP ATE seasonal food finds that are safe for snacking/sipping. We
encourage the (moderate, as always) consumption of these goodies...
Starbucks Caramel Brulee Frappuccino Light Blended Coffee
PER SERVING (Tall, 12 oz.): 150 calories, 0.5g fat, 190mg sodium, 31g
carbs, 2g fiber, 21g sugars, 4g protein -- POINTS® value 3*
AHHHH! This beverage is SO, SO good. As for the fact that it's blended and
frozen? We solve the "how to stay warm while slurping frozen drinks in the
winter" conundrum by staying firmly planted in one of SB's comfy chairs until
every drop of the stuff is gone. This is good advice. Take it.
Miss Meringue Meringues in Peppermint Crush
PER SERVING (about 9 cookies): 110 calories, 0g fat, 20mg sodium, 25g
carbs, 0g fiber, 25g sugars, 1g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
We're longtime fans of these crunchy, sweet mint treats. Meringues are
ALWAYS fun, but we really love this winter-y version. Pick some up and
set 'em out for nibbles at a holiday party... or just eat 'em while you watch
Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! for the hundred-millionth time.
Torani Sugar Free Pumpkin Pie Syrup
PER SERVING (1 oz., 2 tbsp.): 0 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g
fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- POINTS® value 0*
Mmmmm! Making crazy drink concoctions in our kitchen is simply not
possible without delicious sugar-free syrups. And we're SO happy this
seasonal flavor is back again. Mix some into your coffee drinks, create a
special milkshake, or try drizzling it over sweet potatoes or butternut squash.
We repeat, mmmmm! Click here to track down some Torani.
Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Light Ice Cream in Limited Edition Holiday
PER SERVING (1/2 cup): 110 - 120 calories, 3 - 4g fat, 40 - 55mg sodium,
17 - 20g carbs, 0g fiber, 13 - 14g sugars, 2 - 3g protein -- POINTS® value 2 -
The folks at Dreyer's/Edy's pretty much have all your winter taste
requirements covered. Hot Cocoa? Check. Peppermint? Check. Egg Nog?
Check, check, check!!! And all with the low stats and the slow-churned
creaminess we love so much. These ice creams are AMAZING. Get some
before they're gone for another year. (Pssst! You may even be able to find
fall's Pumpkin flavor still on shelves!)
Marshmallow Peeps in Snowmen, Trees, Peppermint Stars, Chocolate Mousse
Flavored Reindeer, Sugar Cookie Gingerbread Cutouts, and JOY
PER SERVING (3 Snowmen/Trees/Stars/Reindeer, 2 Cutouts, or 1 JOY word):
100 - 120 calories, 0g fat, 10 - 15mg sodium, 24 - 29g carbs, 0g fiber, 23 -
27g sugars, 0 - 1g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
No longer content with Easter, Marshmallow Peeps are getting mixed up in all
kinds of holidays! We're fine with that, since it means we get to chomp on
sugar-dusted marshmallows in a variety of shapes and flavors (just not all at
Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Holiday Tea
PER SERVING (1 tea bag): 0 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber,
0g sugars, 0g protein -- POINTS® value 0*
This amazing, decaffeinated, herbalized green tea blend features peppermint
leaves, orange peel, cinnamon, and vanilla bean. It may be the perfect
fireside companion... but you probably shouldn't tell that to your pet or
significant other. They might get jealous.
Pepperidge Farm Holiday Cookie Bites in Ginger Man
PER SERVING (12 cookies): 130 calories, 4g fat, 105mg sodium, 23g carbs,
1g fiber, 12g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 3*
Don't think ALL holiday cookies are off limits just because you're watching
what you eat! Count out a dozen of these li'l "men" -- which are adorable,
delicious, and sprinkled with red & green sugar crystals -- and get that
gingerbread taste without worrying about how many calories you snarfed
Candy Cane Tootsie Pops (a.k.a. Peppermint Tootsie Roll Pops)
PER SERVING (1 pop): 60 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 15g carbs, 0g fiber,
11g sugars, 0g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
We LOVE candy canes, but what's the LEAST awkward way to eat 'em? Do
you start with the straight end or the curved end? How do you avoid getting
peppermint smeared all over your chin? To crunch or not to crunch? ACK!
The lack of said issues is only PART of the reason we adore THESE safely-
stowed-on-a-stick peppermint candy treats. They're also stuffed with a
chocolatey Tootsie Roll center. AMAZING!
