Hungry Girl Today: 12.15.06


We chewed (& sipped!) we're TELLING!

Miss Meringue Meringues, Peppermint Crush

(9 cookies: 110 calories, 0g fat, 20mg sodium, 25g carbs, 0g fiber, 25g

sugars, 1g protein = 2 Points)

Meringues are pretty impressive. They can satisfy a sweet tooth for VERY

few calories, and they're often low-fat or fat-free. Those things score big

points with us. But that being said, they're typically not the type of "cookie"

we do backflips over. In fact, we have a hard time even referring to these

things as cookies. They're more like "airy sugar bites" (doesn't have quite

the same ring to it as "cookie," does it?). These new Peppermint Crush

Meringues, however, are a different story. They ROCK! With a slightly white-

chocolate-y vanilla flavor, these crunchy peppermint-candy-sprinkled treats

are REALLY satisfying and delicious. Pair 'em with a cup of diet hot cocoa for

a perfect late-night holiday snack. By the way, these things have an insanely

low 12 calories each.


Vitasoy Peppermint Chocolate Soy Beverage

(8 oz: 140 calories, 4g fat, 100mg sodium, 24g carbs, 1g fiber, 22g sugars,

4g protein = 3 Points)

Far be it from us to recommend a beverage that contains 140 calories per

cup, but this soy drink is sooooo thick, creamy and delicious we can't help

ourselves. The truth is, you don't even need to down an entire cup of the

stuff to be satisfied. Pour four ounces of it over ice, or add an ounce or two

to a cup of coffee or hot cocoa and you're set! Even if you're not a huge

chocolate mint fan, you'll freak over this stuff. We promise! It's like the

thickest, yummiest minty chocolate malt EVER. There's so much you can do

with it, so grab a carton of it and let the minty chocolate fun begin. Find it in

the non-refrigerated boxed milk section.


Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Light Ice Cream, Egg Nog

(1/2 cup: 110 calories, 3g fat, 40mg sodium, 18g carbs, 0g fiber, 13g sugars,

2g protein = 2 Points)

We never get tired of writing about Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Light Ice

Cream. Why would we? It never EVER lets us down. And, we cannot stress

the importance of enjoying their limited edition holiday flavors before it's too

late. Their eggnog ice cream is incredible. We're not even huge eggnog fans

and we go nuts for this ice cream. It's just as creamy as the full-fat kind and

the eggnog flavor is perfect --- not overpowering in any way. Eat this stuff

straight or use it in dessert and drink recipes. Just eat it. Because after

January, it's gone until next November.

The Republic of Tea - Comfort and Joy Tea, Holiday Spice Blend

(tea prepared from 1 teabag: 0 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g

fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein = 0 Points)

Drinking this stuff is exactly like sipping a holiday in a cup. We know that

probably sounds weird, but it's really the best way to describe the flavor of

this tea. We found it accidentally while strolling down the aisles of Whole

Foods, when the seasonal aroma of cinnamon, apple and clove immediately

sucked us in. We tried a sample of the stuff and we've been hooked ever

since. This mix of black tea, apple, licorice root and other holiday-ish spices

really pops when you add a teaspoon of French Vanilla Fat Free Coffee-mate

powder or a splash of your favorite low-cal milk or soymilk to it. It's hard to

find after the holidays, so remember to stock up before it's gone for a

looooong time.
