WEEKLY WEIGH-IN



Here are some of HG's FAVORITE new recipes...







Snack-tastic Holiday Mix



PER SERVING (1 cup): 132 calories, 3g fat, 137mg sodium, 28g carbs, 5g

fiber, 9g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 2*





This sweet 'n toasty mix is so good it may make your head explode. So be

careful...





Ingredients:

2 cups puffed corn cereal (like Kix)

1/2 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original)

1 oz. (about 1 cup) crispy freeze-dried apples

3 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, granulated

1 1/2 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread

1 tbsp. light corn syrup

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 tbsp. sliced almonds



Directions:

Since this is a quickie recipe, it’s best to have all ingredients measured out

and ready to go before starting (to avoid burning). Begin by setting out a

large piece of foil for the recipe to cool on after it’s prepared.



In a medium-sized saucepan, combine butter, Splenda, corn syrup and

cinnamon. Stir while cooking over low heat. Once mixture is thoroughly

blended and bubbling, stir in both cereals, and coat them with the mixture.

Continuously stir for approximately 2 1/2 minutes, until cereal mix looks well

coated and toasty.



Mix in apple crisps and almonds, and then immediately remove from heat.

Spread mixture out on foil until cool.

Merry Marinated Veggies

(1/5th recipe: 57 calories, 1g fat, 7mg sodium, 14g carbs, 1.5g fiber, 10g

sugars, 1.5g protein = 1 Point)



This beauteous side dish is a great way to add a low-cal filler-upper to your

holiday spread. It’s also PERFECT to have on hand when you're raiding the

fridge for some late-night leftovers!



Ingredients:

1 large cucumber; thinly sliced

1 medium-sized red pepper; thinly sliced

1 cup thinly sliced red onion

1 medium-sized zucchini; halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch wide strips

1 cup Regina Balsamic Vinegar (or another 5-calorie per tablespoon balsamic

vinegar)

1 tsp. olive oil

4 packets SPLENDA (or 2 1/2 tbsp. SPLENDA Granular)

1 cup water

salt and pepper; to taste



Directions:

In a plastic container with a lid, combine all vegetables. In a separate

container, combine and mix vinegar, oil, Splenda and water. Pour marinade

over veggies, cover, and place in fridge for 24 hours. Season to taste with

salt and pepper. HG Tip: This is even yummier after 2 days! Makes five

generous 1-cup servings.

sugars, 3.5g protein = 1 Point)



These adorable holiday treats are bursting with fruity flavor and spicy

sweetness. Best part is, they can pass for a breakfast item OR a dessert. So

treat your holiday guests to some, or horde ‘em all for yourself (we won’t

judge)!

1 1/4 cups regular oats (not quick or instant)

3/4 cup Bisquick Heart Smart baking mix

1 cup skim milk

and tops are firm and golden. Allow to cool before removing from muffin tin.

Enjoy! (Don’t you love recipes that are this easy!)

fave) is fish stew and is usually healthy and delicious.
