ASK HUNGRY GIRL
I was just wondering if you had any ideas for a high-fiber, high-protein
breakfast that has about 230 calories? I always eat my fiber cereal with a
cup of milk, and I'd like to stick with that, but I also want to add some
protein. Those calories really add up! Any ideas?
I Love Breakfast
Dear I Love Breakfast,
I love breakfast as well! And I DO have some ideas for you. First off, not all
fiber cereals are low in calories, so there's a good chance that your average
fiber cereal with a "cup of milk" (even fat-free milk) will cost you all of those
230 calories right there. Sad times! I say try a half of a cup of Fiber One with
four ounces of Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla. That's only 80 calories.
Then you'll have 150 calories to play with for your protein. Scramble up
some egg whites or egg substitute with fresh veggies and a slice of fat-free
American cheese, and you've got yourself a pretty hearty, awesome and
FILLING breakfast that has practically no fat, 230 calories and about 15 - 20
grams of fiber. There are other ways to do the "egg" thing. You can also
have egg whites with a chicken sausage link (Al Fresco sausages are my
favorite!), or scramble a veggie patty into 'em. There's a LOT you can do
with those 150 calories! The key is to stick with Fiber One for the cereal
portion of your breakfast 'cuz it's SOOO low in calories and SOOO high in

Hungry Girl --
If I could live on nuts and chips I would. I love all kinds of chips and crunchy
items more than anything. I am trying to find something to fill my chip
needs. I have tried pretzels, peanuts, etc., but those have a lot of calories,
right? Please help me or at least give me a way to deal with my addiction.
Dear Sinking Chip,
No worries. I'm right there with you. But being addicted to crunchy snacks is
not a good thing. I can't lie, those calories do add up. But that being said, I
am still constantly seeking new things to crunch on. My newest obsession is
Quaker's Mini Delights. Oh my! They are little bags of crunchy rice snacks
that come in Buttered Popcorn, Chocolatey Drizzle and Cinnamon Streusel. I
haven't tried 'em in the chocolate flavor yet, but the other two are
AMAZINGLY good. You get an insane amount of these little critters in each 90-
calorie pouch, so it feels like you are munching forever! For straight up
tortilla chips, I go for Guiltless Gourmet chips (great for guilt-free nachos). I
also dig their Potato Crisps, but those are hard to find. Another one of my
favorites these days (because they taste great and you get a gazillion in
each 105-calorie pouch) is Crum Creek's Soy Bites in a flavor
called "Everything." Wow, those are good! There you go -- start crunching!
