Nature Valley Fruit Crisps; Apple Cinnamon
(1 pouch: 50 calories, 0g fat, 75mg sodium, 13g carbs, 1g fiber, 10g sugars,
0g protein = 1 Point)
The Nature Valley folks have jumped on the dehydrated fruit bandwagon,
and we couldn't be happier. Each perfectly portioned cinnamonlicious pouch
of chewy, crunchy, baked apple goodness has just 50 calories. Plus, you get
to snack on chips (always a fun thing to do) with the healthy benefits of fruit.
Bonus! Unlike so many of our favorite dehydrated fruit snacks, these are
fairly easy to locate. We found em in the snack food aisle of our local
grocery store. These also come in Original Apple, but the cinnamon ones are
Lean Cuisine Brick Oven Style Pizza; Gourmet Mushroom
(1 pizza: 280 calories, 7g fat, 660mg sodium, 40g carbs, 2g fiber, 4g sugars,
15g protein = 6 Points)
We get super-giddy any time we discover a new guilt-free frozen pizza. And
after tasting Lean Cuisine's Brick Oven Style Gourmet Mushroom Pizza, we
actually wanted to throw our arms around the person who created it and give
him a big fat hug (we know he's a "him" because we've met Lean Cuisine's
famous Chef Andy several times!). This pizza is a bit different from
traditional frozen pizzas. For starters, it's square (which we love!). It also
has some sort of ROCKIN' creamy mushroom sauce, instead of tomato
sauce. Were also super-impressed with the low nutritionals on this cheesy,
mushroom-packed masterpiece. It tastes as good as, if not better than, any
fat-packed 'n calorie-infested pie you'd find in the frozen food aisle. Look for
the Roasted Garlic Chicken and BBQ Recipe Chicken versions as well. Yum!
OCocos Organic Baked Chocolate Crisps; Original
(1 package: 90 calories, 2g fat, 50mg sodium, 16g carbs, 1g fiber, 6g
sugars, 2g protein = 2 Points)
These all-natural, baked-not-fried, crunchy little wafers are light yet super-
satisfying. Each crisp is full of cocoaliciousness, sweetened with cane juice,
and filled with organic ingredients like dark cocoa powder and real vanilla.
The 90-calorie snack packs make portion-control a cinch.
These "thincredible" (their word, not ours--but we like it) crisps come in
cinnamon and mocha flavors, too. But the original ones are definitely the
best of the trio. You can order these online at ococos.com, or look for them
at natural foods stores.
Amys Organic Soup; Vegetable Barley
(1 entire 2-serving can: 140 calories, 2g fat, 1,160mg sodium, 26g carbs, 6g
fiber, 10g sugars, 4g protein = 2 Points)
If case you've forgotten, we're real soupies (our word for people who REALLY
love soup). We also REALLY love Amy's. So put the two together and BAM!,
it's a recipe for success. The clever cooks in the Amy's Kitchen kitchen (no,
that's not a typo) have managed to cram veggies, broth, and heaps of barley
into each can and STILL keep the calorie count down to 70 calories per cup.
Insane! And, like all Amy's products, this stuff is organic (weeee!). HG Tip:
This soup (like so many canned ones) is a tad high in sodium; so if you
watch your salt intake, you might not want to put it into regular rotation.
