Hungry Girl Today: 04.25.08
More and more, we're hearing from people looking to up the amount of
natural foods in their diet (a good idea!). And since you don't need us to
name all the different types of produce out there, here are some of our
favorite store-bought food finds made with natural ingredients. And next
week we'll feature MORE natural products (specifically the sweet treats).
Amy's Toaster Pops, Cheese Pizza
PER SERVING (1 Toaster Pop): 150 calories, 5g fat, 220mg sodium, 23g
carbs, 1g fiber, 2g sugars, 5g protein -- POINTS® value 3*
Wanna obliterate a pizza craving without spending enough calories for an
entire meal? Check out Amy's Cheese Pizza Toaster Pops. These things are
basically pizza-flavored Pop-Tarts. Brilliant! Made with sweet tomato sauce
and light mozzarella, they are the ultimate in hot, gooey pizza snacking. In a
perfect world, we'd have a freezer devoted entirely to these things...
Cedarlane Low Fat Garden Vegetable Enchiladas
PER SERVING (1 enchilada): 140 calories, 3g fat, 310mg sodium, 20g carbs,
3g fiber, 4g sugars, 9g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
Wowowow are these good. If you love enchiladas, you'll flip for these. Made
with beans, cheese, peppers, onions and more, these things are also
smothered in delicious enchilada sauce. They come two to a package, and
you can eat the whole box for only 280 calories (POINTS® value 5*). That
rules! And like all of Cedarlane's stuff, they're all-natural and they taste
Nature's Path Organic Instant Hot Oatmeal, Multigrain Raisin Spice
PER SERVING (1 packet): 180 calories, 1.5g fat, 110mg sodium, 40g carbs,
4g fiber, 17g sugars, 4g protein -- POINTS® value 3*
These organic oatmeal packets are slightly higher in calories than some
other kinds, but they're also a bit larger and more satisfying than your
average instant oatmeal. We like 'em! They come in a bunch of other
varieties -- Apple Cinnamon, Flax 'N Oats, Maple Nut, HempPlus, Optimum
Power, Optimum Zen, Original, and FlaxPlus -- but some are higher in fat and
calories, so read labels carefully. We recommend stirring a little canned pure
pumpkin into your oatmeal for an even more filling (and still totally natural)
b-fast bowl! HG Heads Up! Always refer to the packet itself for the most
accurate and up-to-date nutritional stats.
Kashi All Natural Thin Crust Pizzas
PER SERVING (1/3 pizza): 250 - 260 calories, 9g fat, 630 - 660mg sodium,
28 - 29g carbs, 4g fiber, 3 - 4g sugars, 14g protein -- POINTS® value 5*
These crispy, crunchy pizzas come in three fantastic flavors -- Mushroom
Trio & Spinach, Roasted Vegetable, and Tomato Garlic Cheese. YUM! They're
also packed with whole grains, and they taste phenomenal. In fact, natural or
not, we think these are one of the best pizza finds in the frozen foods aisle!
Forget about dialing for delivery -- defrost one of these and share it with a
couple of pals...
Cascadian Farm Gourmet Organic Winter Squash
PER SERVING (1/2 cup): 70 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 19g carbs, 2g
fiber, 7g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
Squash ROCKS. Not only do we love it as a side dish (it's sweet and
delicious!), but mashed butternut squash is also used in MANY HG recipes.
Feel free to defrost and use this frozen squash in our recipes. A half a cup of
this stuff is equal to about 1 heaping cup of raw cubes. It'll save you lots of
time and possibly a few bruises, too (b-nut squash is NOT easy to peel, cut
and de-seed!). This stuff is AWESOME!
Amys Mexican Tamale Pie
PER SERVING (1 pie): 150 calories, 3g fat, 590mg sodium, 27g carbs, 4g
fiber, 2g sugars, 5g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
Yep, another Amy's find. This unbelievably delicious, authentic Mexican treat
is a yummy mix of pinto beans, corn, zucchini and crushed tomatoes -- all
topped with a light polenta (aka cornmeal). Yum! This is one of our favorite
things to come out of Amy's magical kitchen (and that's saying something,
because we REALLY love Amy's). One of these low-fat, high-fiber, personal-
sized frozen pies makes a perfect light lunch, snack, or GREAT addition to
HG Heads Up! Look for these products in the natural foods section of your
supermarket or at natural foods markets like Whole Foods.
