Hungry Girl Today: 8.13.10
No time for chitchat! We've got some natural-food knowledge to drop all over you (as weird as that sounds). Keep reading...
New Natural-Food Finds!
These are a few of our recent faves...
Heinz Simply Heinz Tomato Ketchup
PER SERVING (1 tbsp.): 20 calories, 0g fat, 190mg sodium, 5g carbs, 0g fiber, 4g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
Lovers of ketchup and natural ingredients, prepare to par-tay! While there are other all-natural options out there, everyone knows Heinz makes the best ketchup. This sugar-sweetened condiment does away with high-fructose corn syrup, so you can dip, douse, spread, and slather while keeping things anti-artificial.
Jamba Yogurt & Sorbet Bars
PER SERVING (1 bar): 80 - 90 calories, 1 - 2g fat, 20 - 25mg sodium, 18 - 20g carbs, 3g fiber, 12 - 13g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2 - 3*
The smoothie people are spreading their talents around, and these bars definitely have our attention. In Vanilla Blueberry Pomegranate Perfection, Vanilla Strawberry Jubilation, and the SPECTACULARLY AMAZING Coconut Pineapple Passion Smashin' (yeah, we're playing favorites), they could be the sweet treats that help you beat the heat. (End rhyming spree.)
Doctor Kracker All Natural and Artisan-Baked Culinary Crisps in Hummus Maximus
PER SERVING (8 pieces): 100 calories, 4g fat, 118mg sodium, 12g carbs, 3g fiber, 0g sugars, 4g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
We've raved about Doc K.'s completely natural crackers and flatbreads before, and this new flavor is as incredible as the rest. Crunchy treats complete with the delicious taste of everyone's favorite chickpea spread?! Serious score, people!
Lucini Italia Gourmet Pouch Sauces
PER SERVING (1/2 cup): 60 - 70 calories, 3 - 4.5g fat, 410 - 480mg sodium, 7g carbs, <1 - 1g fiber, 4 - 5g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
If you like your tomato sauces decadent, all natural, free of added sugar, and AMAZINGLY delicious, get this stuff! The varieties include Tuscan Marinara with Roasted Garlic, Spicy Tuscan Tomato, and Rustic Tomato Basil. Oh, and you can heat 'em up right in the pouch. Awesome.
Q.bel All Natural Wafer Rolls
PER SERVING (1 package, 2 rolls): 120 - 130 calories, 6 - 7g fat, 25 - 60mg sodium, 16 - 18g carbs, <1 - 1g fiber, 10 - 13g sugars, 1 - 3g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3 - 4*
Just because they're candy bars doesn't mean they have to be full of fake stuff! These treats come in Crunchy Crispy/Dark Chocolate, Crunchy Crispy/Milk Chocolate, and Peanut Butter/Milk Chocolate; and yes, they taste JUST like candy bars should. AMAZING!
Sinless Margarita Mix
PER SERVING (3 oz.): 5 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
WHOA. A cocktail mixer with no sugar and no artificial sweeteners that tastes good enough to keep happy hour happy? We were shocked, but it's true. If you're not into mixing up your own cocktails, this sugar-free shortcut ROCKS.
Litehouse Tangy Orange Citrus Dressing, Sauce & Marinade
PER SERVING (2 tbsp.): 50 calories, 0g fat, 190mg sodium, 13g carbs, 0g fiber, 12g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
Not only is this here item delicious, but it's super versatile too! Use it on chicken, seafood, lean beef, grilled veggies, and leafy greens; try it as a dip for cut veggies and crispy crackers; mix it with other sauces like BBQ or teriyaki... Sky's the limit, humans! (P.S. Look for it in the fridge section of the supermarket.)
HG Au Naturel Staples
We can't live without these products. Betcha didn't know they're also all natural...
The Laughing Cow Mini Babybel Light - Portable. Adorable. Chompable. These cheese rounds ROCK.
Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt - The best Greek yogurt. Hands down.
Old Fashioned Quaker Oats - We enjoy these oats so often, we buy 'em by the sack-load at Costco.
Newman's Own Lighten Up! Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing - So good, we dream about this sweet 'n sassy salad topper!
Blue Diamond Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze - Find our beloved milk swap with the non-refrigerated boxed milks. If your store is fancy and really well stocked, look for cartons of it in the refrigerated section.
Mann's Sunny Shores Broccoli Cole Slaw - What would we do without this bagged beauty and its lovely sibling, Rainbow Salad? We have an idea, but we don't like thinking about how much time we'd spend grating veggies...
Amy's Organic Chunky Tomato Bisque - We adore many of Amy's products (Cheese Pizza Toaster Pops! Light in Sodium Burritos!), but this soup is ALWAYS on our minds and in our pantry.
Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin - Want a quick 'n easy way to get more pumpkin into your life? Add a couple of spoonfuls to your oatmeal -- made with naturally awesome old-fashioned oats -- and then sweeten to taste. Eat!
Funky Monkey Snacks - Freeze-dried fruit is stellar, and these treats are our current faves; with fun flavors like Pink Pineapple and JiveALime, how can we resist? Other notables include Gerber Graduates Mini Fruits (yes, the toddler snack), Just Tomatoes' fruity offerings, the crunchy sweets from Sensible Foods, and Crispy Green's delicious options.
Everybody's Nuts! California Pistachios, All Natural Almond Accents, Blue Diamond 100-Calorie Packs of Almonds, and Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds - OK, we couldn't pick just one. We're nuts for ALL these nuts.
