Hungry Girl Today: 01.28.11
GIRLS BITE OUT
Here are a few items we need to bring to your attention, so that you can bring them to your kitchen. Read on...
Morningstar Farms Veggie Corn Dogs
PER SERVING (1 full-sized Corn Dog or 4 Mini Corn Dogs): 150 - 170 calories, 2.5 - 3.5g fat, 470 - 520mg sodium, 25 - 26g carbs, 2 - 3g fiber, 6 - 8g sugars, 8 - 10g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*
"But HG, weren't those discontinued?" In case you missed the memo, these puppies are BACK! Both the on-stick version and the minis are popping up in freezer aisles once more, and we're ecstatic. Show MF how excited you are too by picking up a box immediately. We can't let these disappear again!
Yoplait Fiber One Blueberry Yogurt
PER SERVING (one 4-oz. container): 50 calories, 0g fat, 55mg sodium, 13g carbs, 5g fiber, 4g sugars, 3g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
A brand-new flavor of something we already love is always cause for celebration. And when that flavor is full of blueberry goodness, it is PARTY TIME! Keep your eyes open for this brand-spankin'-new fruity yogurt from our fiber-obsessed buddies at F1. YAY!
Lisanatti Foods The Original Almond Cheese Alternative
PER SERVING (1 oz.): 50 calories, 1g fat, 190mg sodium, 3g carbs, 1g fiber, 0g sugars, 7g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
Looking for a soy-free cheese swap (or any cheesy item, for that matter) that tastes delicious and is super-low in fat? Allow us to suggest this newfound object of our affection! It tastes like CHEESE, but it's made with the help of ALMONDS, so it has a bit of FIBER. WOW. (OK, we'll stop with the caps.) Choose from classic Mozzarella, lovable Cheddar, Jalapeno Jack, and Garlic & Herb styles. Find it at natural foods stores and select markets. Then try it and love it.
Cinnamon Burst Cheerios
PER SERVING (1 cup): 110 calories, 2g fat, 125mg sodium, 27g carbs, 5g fiber, 9g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
Cheerio-lovers and fiber-enthusiasts can collectively cheer for a new variety of O's. This cinnalicious cereal (it's a word now; embrace it) is awesome eaten with fat-free milk (or your milk swap of choice), and it's also delicious chewed solo as a snack. And we imagine it'd be an ideal ingredient for some tasty marshmallow squares. We'll get right on that last one...
PER SERVING (3 oz.): 30 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 7g carbs, 1g fiber, 3g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
We won't lie -- we DO feel a little disloyal to our main squeeze, butternut squash, anytime we talk about this Japanese treat. But it tastes SO GOOD! B-nut is still easier to find, but in the event you spy a few kabochas hanging around your produce department (or at an Asian market, perhaps), grab one and cook it like you would that "other" squash...
Thomas' Cinnamon Raisin Bagel Thins
PER SERVING (1 Bagel Thin): 110 calories, 1g fat, 160mg sodium, 25g carbs, 5g fiber, 6g sugars, 4g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
If you thought you had to give up sweet bagels studded with dried fruit, rejoice! Thomas, master of all things carby, has a skinny bagel that's perfect for your cinnamon-raisin-cravin' taste buds. Toast it, smear it with some fat-free cream cheese, and your day will be 78 percent better. (Warning: Hungry Girl has no scientific data to back up this claim... but we're pretty sure it's true.)
Williams Farm Thick 'N Chunky Veggies Plus Salsa
PER SERVING (2 tbsp.): 10 calories, 0g fat, 135mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
Don't go thinking this is just another jarred salsa -- this kind is packed with EDAMAME, a.k.a. immature soybeans. (BTW, that just means they're young -- they don't throw tantrums or anything.) That's so cool! The fact that it's also super-delicious and loaded with lots of chunky veggies has us crazy in love with WF's salsa. Heads up: You can only find it at Whole Foods, so locate the one closest to you!

CHEW ON THIS:
Today, January 28th, is National Blueberry Pancake Day. Instead of hitting up a certain chain that rhymes with IFLOP -- where the plain blueberry p-cakes pack 800 calories -- grab the green book and make a Blueberry Apple Pancake Shake-Up!
