GIRLS BITE OUT
We took a trip down the freezer aisle to check out what's new and delicious... and what's not at all worth buying. Here's what we found!
Most Fun Breakfast Item...
Jimmy D's Griddle Sticks
PER SERVING (1 pancake N sausage/Griddle Stick): 160 calories, 6g fat, 410mg sodium, 21g carbs, 0g fiber, 8g sugars, 7g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*
Alright, so the Jimmy D's line is supposed to be geared toward kids... but why should they have all the fun? (C'mon, they already get recess and nap time.) The outside of these corn-dog-inspired treats is very cake-like, and the sausage inside is really delicious. Since these are pretty low in calories, we recommend pairing one with some scrambled fat-free egg substitute, yogurt, or a piece of fruit to round out your meal. YAY, food on a stick!
Most Disappointing Breakfast Combo...
Weight Watchers Smart Ones Morning Express French Toast with Turkey Sausage
PER SERVING (1 package): 280 calories, 8g fat, 570mg sodium, 38g carbs, 2g fiber, 18g sugars, 14g protein -- PointsPlus® value 7
We opened the package of this b-fast option and were a little bummed -- two small, thin slices of French toast with a few unimpressively sized sausage nuggets. Sigh! After chewing it, we discovered the sausages taste okay, but the French toast is just floppy and not all that appealing. Smart Ones, we love you and know you can do better!
Best Unconventional Take on an Asian Appetizer...
Lean Cuisine Casual Cuisine Spring Rolls
PER SERVING (2 spring rolls): 200 calories, 7 - 8g fat, 580mg sodium, 20 - 24g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 3 - 4g sugars, 10 - 15g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*
These things are AMAZING! Not a meal, per se, but a fun hot snack that won't bring you down with a high calorie count. When you're craving greasy Chinese takeout (you know it happens!), this line of spring rolls will satisfy the need. Choose from Thai-style Chicken (the most traditional of the bunch), Fajita-style Chicken (tastes almost like taquitos), and Garlic Chicken (reminds us of an HG recipe!). Yummmm...
