GIRLS BITE OUT
It's easy-recipe time here at Hungryland! And is there anything easier than a recipe with only two ingredients? Some of these don't even require any cooking! Make some ASAP...
Onion Goodness Burgers
1/5th of recipe (1 patty): 180 calories, 8g fat, 550mg sodium, 3g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 22.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*
For simple burgers that taste anything but boring, just add onion soup mix to your ground meat! It rocks with lean ground turkey -- if you're more of a beef-burger fan, use the extra-lean stuff. (Click for more info on ground meat.)
The Egg Mug Classic
Entire recipe: 125 calories, 1.5g fat, 547mg sodium, 3.5g carbs, 0g fiber, 2.5g sugars, 20g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
The easiest egg scramble you'll ever make. No pan, no stove... and almost no scrambling! Just remember to immediately soak your mug for quicker cleanup. Click for more egg mugs!
De-Pudged Pigs in a Blanket
1/8th of recipe (4 pigs in a blanket): 134 calories, 5g fat, 652mg sodium, 16g carbs, 0g fiber, 3g sugars, 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*
The classic dough-wrapped party bites are tasty but typically more fattening than they are filling. This swap, on the other hand, is nice 'n light. Pig out!
Yum Yum Brownie Muffins
1/12th of recipe (1 muffin): 181 calories, 3.5g fat, 357mg sodium, 37g carbs, 2g fiber, 20g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*
If you haven't yet made 'em, it's time you gave this HG classic a try. Pairing a can of pure pumpkin with a box of devil's food cake mix yields delicious brownie-like treats! Yes, that's all you need. No, we're not messing with you. (We'd never lie about chocolatey treats.)
Salsa-fied Egg White Bites
Entire recipe: 59 calories, <0.5g fat, 297mg sodium, 2.5g carbs, <0.5g fiber, 1g sugars, 11g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
Snack alert! When you need a protein fix (as one frequently does), whip up this flavorful snack. Just slice your eggs in half, ditch the yolks, and fill those whites with your favorite salsa! A totally satisfying score with so few calories.
Strawberries + Crumbled Reduced-Fat Feta Cheese
Entire recipe: 123 calories, 4.5g fat, 431mg sodium, 14.5g carbs, 3.5g fiber, 8.5g sugars, 7.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
Ever hulled a strawberry? It's not that hard! Just use a narrow spoon handle to remove the center stuff. (Or use a narrow paring knife, fancy pants.) Then stuff your berries with cheese! Too much work? Just slice the berries, and toss with the feta.
1/4th of recipe (4 meatballs): 158 calories, 5g fat, 356mg sodium, 2.5g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 23.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*
Another super-simple ground-meat recipe. This one pairs extra-lean beef with taco seasoning, but not to make run-of-the-mill taco meat. We're baking up meatballs! Topping them like tacos is definitely encouraged -- salsa, light sour cream, chopped cilantro... YUM!
Fruity Cheese Skewers
1/2 of recipe (2 skewers): 109 calories, 4.5g fat, 241mg sodium, 8.5g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 7g sugars, 9.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
Hop on board the fruit + cheese bandwagon. This summer, we discovered how well watermelon pairs with Mini Babybel Light cheese. Try matching up apple chunks with Mini Babybel Gouda and pear pieces with White Cheddar!
