Hungry Girl Today: 9.9.13
Spotted on Shelves... (Fun-in-the-Freezer Edition!)
Red's All Natural 5-oz. Burritos - We tend to skip Red's oversized 11-oz. burritos, but we're obsessed with these smaller selections. They're new and fantastic! The size is comparable to other freezer-aisle burritos, and the fillings are made with wholesome ingredients like brown rice and antibiotic-free meats. In Steak & Cheese and Chicken & Cheese, each burrito has 250 - 280 calories, 6 - 8g fat, 210 - 260mg sodium, 36 - 37g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 1g sugars, and 13 - 16g protein (PointsPlus® value 7*). Click to find 'em near you!
Jimmy Dean Delights Garden Blend Breakfast Bowl - NEW BREAKFAST FIND! We love JD's Delights lineup, and now the sausage king has a meatless morning bowl. We're talkin' potatoes, peppers, onions, and cheese... with scrambled egg whites! Each bowl has 240 calories, 10g fat, 500mg sodium, 19g carbs, 2g fiber, 2g sugars, and 18g protein (PointsPlus® value 6*). In freezer cases nationwide.
Tofurky Pockets in BBQ Chick'n and Pepperoni Pizza - Here's some more for the vegetarian crowd. Our pals at Tofurky have a couple of seriously decadent options stuffed with meat swaps. Each of these saucy pockets has 290 - 300 calories, 4 - 5g fat, 610 - 680mg sodium, 43 - 50g carbs, 3g fiber, 5 - 12g sugars, and 8 - 10g protein (PointsPlus® value 6 - 7*). Grab a box ASAP, and check out the Turk'y Broccoli & Cheddar variety too.
New & Natural Sweet Treats! (Worth Seeking Out)
Truwhip the Natural Light - In case you didn't know, Truwhip is an amazingly delicious, all-natural whipped topping. And now there's an equally amazing version with fewer calories and less fat! A 2-tbsp. serving of the creamy stuff has just 25 calories and 1.5g fat (PointsPlus® value 1*). Click to find. (It'll be in the freezer aisle.) BTW, the stats on the original aren't bad either. Just watch those portions...
All-Natural Goodpop Frozen Pops - We could NOT be more crazy about these freezy bars. From quirky options like Hibiscus Mint and Banana Cinnamon (the BEST!) to classic flavors like strawberry and watermelon, each pop has just 48 - 96 calories and 0 - 5.2g fat (PointsPlus® value 1 - 3*). WOWOWOW! They're currently sold only in select states (click to locate), but the brand's expanding fast. We hope to see these nationwide next year.
Vitalicious Wild Blueberry VitaTops - Here's an online exclusive that's TOTALLY worth ordering! The latest 100-calorie muffin tops from Vita are crammed with real juicy berries (not to mention loads of fiber), and the muffin base itself is cakey and delicious. Each top has 100 calories and 1g fat (PointsPlus® value 3*). These would be GREAT topped with Truwhip Light...
