Hungry Girl Today: 04.21.11
WEEKLY WEIGH-IN

Since breakfast is the undisputed heavyweight-champion of meals -- it's the most important one of the day! -- we've got a few new options to keep you going strong all day long! (Well, at least until lunch...)


Fun-in-the-Sunrise Piña Colada Oatmeal

PER SERVING (entire recipe): 271 calories, 8g fat, 347mg sodium, 45g carbs, 6g fiber, 14.5g sugars, 6g protein -- PointsPlus® value 7*

If a tropical vacation and a bowl of oatmeal had a baby, it would be this recipe...





Ingredients:
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda or Truvia)
Dash salt
1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze
1/3 cup crushed pineapple packed in juice, lightly drained
2 drops coconut extract
2 tsp. shredded sweetened coconut
1 tsp. powdered sugar

Directions:
Combine oats, sweetener, and salt in a nonstick pot on the stove. Add Almond Breeze and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer.

Cook for 12 - 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until very thick and creamy.

Transfer to a bowl and allow to slightly cool and thicken.

Stir in pineapple and coconut extract. Sprinkle with coconut shreds and powdered sugar. Enjoy!

Salted Caramel Cocoa Oatmeal Bowl

PER SERVING (entire recipe): 292 calories, 9g fat, 736mg sodium, 46g carbs, 6g fiber, 13.5g sugars, 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 8*

This bowl of creamy oats was inspired by a decadent hot cocoa drink at Starbucks. However, our b-fast is way more filling and satisfying than that mug!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
One 25-calorie packet hot cocoa mix (like Swiss Miss Diet or Nestlé Fat Free)
Dash table salt
1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze
2 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 tsp. fat-free or light caramel dip (like the kinds by Marzetti), softened
1/8 tsp. coarse salt
Optional topping: Fat Free Reddi-wip

Directions:
Combine oats, cocoa mix, and table salt in a nonstick pot on the stove. Add Almond Breeze and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer.

Cook for 12 - 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until very thick and creamy.

Transfer to a bowl and allow to slightly cool and thicken. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drizzle with caramel and sprinkle with coarse salt. If you like, top with Reddi-wip. Eat up!

HG Alternative! If you can't get your hands on Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze, use light vanilla soymilk in its place. Just increase each recipe's calorie count by 30 calories or so.
