Hungry Girl Today: 10.18.13
GIRLS BITE OUT
Craving HUGE portions without huge calorie counts? You're in the right place! Check out some of our very best super-sized recipes...
El Ginormo Southwest Oven-Baked Omelette
1/4th of recipe (1 large piece): 188 calories, 3g fat, 590mg sodium, 17g carbs, 2.5g fiber, 5g sugars, 22g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*
Gotta start off with breakfast. This recipe makes the list for obvious reasons -- it has "ginormo" in the name! You get a tremendous and delicious protein-packed egg bake, crammed with black beans and a whole lot of veggies. Puny breakfast foods will cower in fear...
Big Banana-Berry French Toast
Entire recipe: 360 calories, 5.5g fat, 595mg sodium, 59g carbs, 11g fiber, 23.5g sugars, 22.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 9*
Calling this breakfast "big" might be an understatement. This is the kind of platter of which dreams are made! Sweet French toast is cleverly slimmed down with light bread, egg substitute, and light butter. Add a generous serving of fresh fruit and a little fat-free whip... Perfection.
Funkadelic Chili Mac
1/4th of recipe (about 1 3/4 cups): 297 calories, 2g fat, 637mg sodium, 55.5g carbs, 9.75g fiber, 11.5g sugars, 19g protein -- PointsPlus® value 8*
Comfort-food alert! Pasta and chili go great together, and this version gets a major boost from onions, peppers, tomatoes, and (HELLO) portabellas. Plus, fiber-packed macaroni is wonderful, whether you grab a whole-wheat blend or white pasta enriched with fiber. Yum, yum, yum!
Chop-Chop Beef Stir Fry
Entire recipe: 293 calories, 6.5g fat, 914mg sodium, 26g carbs, 7.5g fiber, 7g sugars, 35g protein -- PointsPlus® value 7*
The seal of approval on this recipe doesn't just come from the HG staff. Competitive eater Joey Chestnut tried it on the Hungry Girl TV show and gave it two thumbs up! Lean beef and piles of vegetables are cooked up with a super-flavorful sauce. It's a spectacular choice if you're avoiding starchy foods but want to enjoy a substantial meal. So hurry up, chop-chop, and try it...
Spicy Chicken-Sausage Penne
1/4th of recipe (2 cups): 298 calories, 6.5g fat, 806mg sodium, 43g carbs, 9g fiber, 11g sugars, 20g protein -- PointsPlus® value 7*
This is one of our newer recipes, and we're just nuts about it. It has steamed broccoli cole slaw (one of our favorite pasta swaps) PLUS penne noodles. Chicken sausage? Check. Lots of veggies? OBVIOUS CHECK. P.S. This stuff reheats well... Yay, leftovers!
Hungry Mac 'Bella Stack Burger
Entire recipe: 234 calories, 2g fat, 946mg sodium, 45g carbs, 9.5g fiber, 12g sugars, 14.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*
We almost have to fan ourselves each time we see this picture. It's pretty impressive, no? You may have to squish the mega-burger down a bit in order to get a bite, but we assure you it's worth the effort! If you've never tried swapping a big mushroom cap for a burger patty, prepare to have your mind blown. (Bonus: Our lightened-up special sauce is juuuuust right.)
