Hungry Girl Today: 8.31.15
Spotted on Shelves...
Ball Park Applewood Smoked Chicken Franks - Summer ain't over 'til mid-September, and we're hanging on to every last second. These poultry franks are PERFECT for Labor Day. Each frank has 80 calories, 5g fat, 430mg sodium, 3g carbs, 0g fiber, 2g sugars, and 6g protein (PointsPlus® value 2*). Click to find them at a location near you, and put the dog into the dog days of summer…
Snyder's of Hanover Pretzel Poppers - Pretzels rule, but carby snacks can rack up calories quickly. The great thing about these snacks? They're light and hollow, so you get a pretty big serving size. Plus, they're super crispy and good for dipping. In Original, Three Cheese, and Cinnamon Sugar, eat about 20 of 'em for 120 - 130 calories, 1.5 - 3g fat, 400 - 500mg sodium, 22 - 23g carbs, <1 - 1g fiber, <1 - 2g sugars, and 3g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). Track down a bag (or two), and get crunching!
Peanut Butter & Co. Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter - Another nut-butter company has jumped on the powdered PB bandwagon, and we couldn't be happier. This line features Original, Chocolate, Flax & Chia, and Vanilla. A 2-tbsp. serving has 45 - 55 calories, 1 - 1.5g fat, 95 - 100mg sodium, 4 - 6g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 2 - 3g sugars, and 5 - 6g protein (PointsPlus® value 1*). Click to locate (select stores only), or order online.
Better-for-You Coffee Drinks at Dunkin' Donuts & More
Dunkin Donuts Frozen Coffee Coolatta Lite - Ice-blended coffee makes an ordinary day feel special, and it's best when it comes with a low calorie count. A small (16-oz.) order of this new sipper has 75 percent fewer calories than an original Coffee Coolatta -- only 80 calories (PointsPlus® value 3*)! There are fruity Coolatta Lite varieties too, with 45 - 100 calories per 16-oz. serving. But watch out for the 250-calorie Vanilla Bean...
Carl's Jr. Iced Coffee - Yup, iced coffee is the newest addition to the fast-food joint's drink line. And while it's not the lightest game in town, it is sweet and creamy java for 130 calories and 3g fat (PointsPlus® value 4*). You could do worse.
Trader Joe's Cold Brew Concentrate - This stuff is your new secret weapon. Keep a stash in your kitchen, and when the need for cold coffee comes a-calling, you'll be ready to personalize your glass. Since it's just plain coffee, brewed strong, it's virtually calorie-free. But don't forget to add water... This stuff is concentrated!
All that glitters is not gold, and all that's natural is not healthy. Remember Carl's Jr.'s 760-calorie All-Natural Burger? Regional sibling Hardee's just launched its All-Natural Burger, and a single-patty sandwich has 840 calories and 56g fat! BOOOO. HG tip: Ditch the bun, cheese, and mayo, and request the all-natural patty low-carb style on a lettuce bun. ***According to a study out of Loyola University Chicago, diet trumps physical exercise in the battle against obesity. Researchers concluded that reduction of calorie intake, with or without exercise, is the best way to lose or maintain weight. Good thing you’ve got HG recipes, right? ***In case you missed it: Check out our latest Hungry Girl Hack Attack video for French Toast Nuggets! Such a great trick. Watch now, and then get the recipe. ***And finally, it's official. Starbucks' famous/infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte will return to stores on September 8th, the day after Labor Day... This time, with real pumpkin. Still, a Grande made with 2% milk and topped with whipped cream packs 380 calories and 14g fat. Check out our low-calorie swap instead, which has always had real pumpkin. 'Til next time… Chew the right thing!
