Hungry Girl Today: 6.18.10
We are constantly updating our beloved supermarket list, but since it's SO
incredibly thorough (read: GINORMOUS), you might not notice the specific
items we add with each new edition. So before we release our very latest list
(NEXT WEEK!), we want to call attention to the TOP ATE things that should
DEFINITELY find a comfy seat in your shopping cart. Here they are now, in
totally random order...
1. The Laughing Cow Mini Babybel Light
PER SERVING (1 piece): 50 calories, 3g fat, 160mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g
fiber, 0g sugars, 6g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
We know these adorable wax-wrapped cheese rounds are not exactly new,
but our undying love for them IS. We don't know WHY it took us so long to
appreciate the creamy texture, sharp flavor, and incomparable meltability of
this light cheese. Think of it as that friend you've had for years but only just
realized is your soulmate. (It's the Duckie of light cheeses.)
2. Sara Lee 80 Calories & Delightful Wheat Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns
PER SERVING (1 bun): 80 calories, 1g fat, 160mg sodium, 14 - 15g carbs, 6g
fiber, 2g sugars, and 4g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
Just in time for frankfurter 'n hamburger season, we've got a new favorite
light-bun option! All those 100-cal flat-bun items are great, but if you want a
fluffy bun to cradle your burger or hot dog, THESE are for you. What's the
point of wasting calories on a ginormous roll?! Everyone knows that it's
what's on the INSIDE that counts...
3. New Flavors! The Laughing Cow Light Cheese Wedges
PER SERVING (1 wedge): 35 calories, 1.5 - 2g fat, 220 - 240mg sodium, 2g
carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
"Eagerly anticipated" doesn't even begin to cover it. We straight-up could
NOT wait for these things to hit store shelves!!! Now that they're rolling out,
we can put away our countdown calendar and start spreading! The new
varieties -- in case you didn't hear or somehow forgot -- are Blue Cheese,
Queso Fresco & Chipotle, and Mozzarella, Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil.
Have 'em on those light buns with your favorite no-guilt burger patties --
4. Diet Snapple Trop-A-Rocka Tea
PER SERVING (8 fl. oz.): 5 calories, 0g fat, 5mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber,
0g sugars, 0g protein -- POINTS® value 0*
We practically lost our minds the first time we tried this stuff, which was
developed by Bret Michaels... and not because we had Poison posters over
our beds well into the '90s. Seriously, this may be the BEST diet iced tea
EVER. Take a sip and prepare for a tea-rific fruity explosion in your face:
mango, cinnamon, peaches, and pears. TOO GOOD. It's a limited-edition
flavor, but we're campaigning to get it permanently added to Snapple's
lineup. Click here and BEG the Snapple people to make it happen. And click
here to track the drink down near you... Then STOCK UP!
5. The Skinny Cow Low Fat Ice Cream Cups
PER SERVING (1 container): 150 - 170 calories, 1 - 3g fat, 65 - 90mg
sodium, 29 - 33g carbs, 4g fiber, 17 - 24g sugars, 4 - 5g protein -- POINTS®
value 2 - 3*
Honestly, what can we say about these individual servings of light ice cream
that we haven't already said? In case you missed our previous raves, these
cups are full of creamy, dreamy, delicious, frozen guilt-free goodness. The
flavor combos are impossibly good: Strawberry Cheesecake, Caramel Cone,
Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Cookies 'N Cream, and Dulce de Leche. What
more could you want?! Find them and spoon them! (Caramel Cone, you're
6. Dr. Kracker Seedlander Flatbreads
PER SERVING (1 flatbread): 100 calories, 4.5g fat, 190mg sodium, 13g
carbs, 2g fiber, 2g sugars, 4g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
We never knew how much love we could feel for a giant cracker... until now.
That's because these are no ordinary crackers. Each one is LARGE and
encrusted with pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, flaxseeds... The list goes on!
These goodies are organic (a nice plus), they're baked, AND each has one
bare side that happens to be perfect for spreading with a wedge of The
Laughing Cow Light cheese. These flat snacks RULE! Thanks, Doc K!
7. AriZona Sugar Free Iced Tea Stix, Pomegranate Green Tea
PER SERVING (1/2 packet): 0 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g
fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- POINTS® value 0*
Another great find for summer, these "stix" will turn a plain old bottle of
water into a flavorful (yet calorie-free!) beverage. We're typically not HUGE
fans of green tea, but this perfectly sweet and fruity stuff is a major
exception. FYI, AriZona also makes a 5-calories-per-serving Arnold Palmer
version -- a TOTAL calorie bargain for a premixed and purse-friendly tea-
8. Thomas' Bagel Thins
PER SERVING (1 bagel): 110 calories, 1g fat, 190 - 210mg sodium, 24 - 25g
carbs, 4 - 5g fiber, 3g sugars, 4 - 6g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
As much as we love bagels (which is A LOT), we can't help but avoid them
and their high-calorie, carb-tastic ways. Hence, these slim swappers are
PERFECT for those of us who crave round bread treats with holes in the
middle. The Plain and 100% Whole Wheat varieties are impressive enough,
but the Everything version?? Mind-explodingly incredible. Truly.
