Ready for some more ROCKIN' recipes from HG? Dig in!



AM Apple Scramble!

(Entire recipe: 230 calories, 1.5g fat, 385mg sodium, 37g carbs, 5g fiber, 12g

sugars, 17g protein = PointsPlus® value 6*)



A GIGANTIC and apple-tastic treat to brighten your day...



Ingredients:

1 cup peeled and finely chopped apple (approx. 1 medium apple)

1 slice Wonder Light White Bread

1/2 cup Egg Beaters Original

3 tbsp. regular oats (not quick or instant)

1 oz. light vanilla soymilk

1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

2 packets SPLENDA

pinch salt



Directions:

Begin by stirring to combine all ingredients except for the bread and apple.

Set aside. Toast bread well (but do not burn) and allow it to cool. Tear bread

into pieces and place in a blender or food processor. Pulse bread until

reduced to small pieces. Add mixture and chopped apple to blender or

processor and pulse until mixed (NOT liquefied). In a pan sprayed with

nonstick spray, cook mixture over medium heat. Prepare as you would

scrambled eggs, constantly moving mixture around with a spatula. Cook for

approximately 5 minutes, until solid crumbles form and brown slightly.

Serves 1!







Oatstanding Veggie Patties!

(1 patty: 70 calories, 0.5g fat, 585mg sodium, 16g carbs, 5g fiber, 3g sugars,

4g protein = PointsPlus® value 2*)



These patties are sooooo good you can pop 'em straight -- or feel free to

enjoy on some healthy bread, lettuce or cabbage "bun", or rolled in a high-

fiber tortilla!



Ingredients:

1/3 cup regular oats (not quick or instant)

1 cup diced onion

1 cup diced red and green peppers

1 cup diced mushrooms

1 cup diced green beans

1/2 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal

1/4 cup Egg Beaters Original

2 tsp. low sodium soy sauce

1 tsp. salt

pepper



Directions:

In a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like

consistency and set aside. Next, add 1/3 cup boiling water to oats and set

those aside as well. In a large pot sprayed with nonstick cooking spray,

cook vegetables for five minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Remove pot from heat and transfer veggies to a large bowl; allow to cool for

several minutes. Stir in oatmeal, ground Fiber One, soy sauce, salt and Egg

Beaters. Add pepper per your taste. Make sure mixture is well blended.

One by one, form mixture into 5 balls and flatten into patties. Allow patties

to cool and set in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Cook patties on a skillet

sprayed with nonstick cooking spray over medium heat for about 3 - 4

minutes per side (flip 'em gently so they keep their shape). Load ‘em up

with your favorite burger condiments like pickles, ketchup, light cheese and

zesty mustard! Serves 5.







Creamy Coconut Shrimp with Crisp Veggies

(1/2 recipe: 235 calories, 3g fat, 550mg sodium, 23g carbs, 10g fiber, 4g

sugars, 30g protein = PointsPlus® value 5*)



This shrimptastic dish tastes even better when you pour it over Tofu

Shirataki noodles....mmmmmm!



Ingredients:

1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze (or light vanilla

soymilk*)

2 tsp. low sodium soy sauce

1 oz. Torani Sugar Free Coconut Syrup

2 tsp. cornstarch

8 oz. uncooked shrimp; shell-off and de-veined

5 cups green beans (or veggies of your choice)

Optional: 1 tsp. red pepper flakes



Directions:

Begin by stirring to combine Almond Breeze (or soymilk), Torani Syrup,

cornstarch, soy sauce, and (if desired) red pepper flakes in a medium-sized

saucepan. Set stove to low heat and cook until mixture reaches a frothy

boil. Stir and continue to heat for 2 - 3 minutes. Turn off stove, but leave

sauce in the pan to thicken. Wash and cut green beans and place in a

microwave-safe dish with 1/3 cup of water. Cover veggies with a lid or

plastic wrap, and heat in microwave for 5 - 10 minutes (depending on how

crisp you like ‘em). Drain liquid and set aside. Next, add shrimp to the

sauce in the saucepan and cook at medium heat. Cook until shrimp are pink

on the outside and opaque throughout (about 3 - 5 minutes; time will vary

based on shrimp size). Top steamed green beans with shrimp and sauce.

Sauce will thicken as it cools. Serves 2!

Chew on This:

Today, February 15th, is National Gumdrop Day. Gumdrops are often fat-

free, but those calories can add up if you eat too many -- so stick with a few

gumdrops if you plan on celebrating.
