Hungry Girl Today: 05.02.08
As promised, here are SIX natural sweet treats we love!
Gnu Bars, Cinnamon Raisin
PER SERVING (1 bar): 130 calories, 3g fat, 30mg sodium, 32g carbs, 12g
fiber, 8g sugars, 4g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
These each pack in 12 grams of fiber! And even though they're bars, they
taste like chewy cookies. They come in four other flavors -- Orange
Cranberry, Banana Walnut, Peanut Butter, and Chocolate Brownie. All of
them are really good, but we like the Cinnamon Raisin best. Yum!!!
VitaTops, Deep Chocolate
PER SERVING (1 Top): 100 calories, 1.5g fat, 140mg sodium, 21g carbs, 6g
fiber, 9g sugars, 3g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
It's no secret that we LOOOVE VitaTops (especially all the chocolate-flavored
ones)! With all that chocolatey goodness, fiber, and other healthy stuff, how
could we not?! These Deep Chocolate snacks are classic, but VitaTops also
come in a variety of other delicious chocolate flavors -- Double Chocolate
Dream, Fudgy Peanut Butter Chip, Dark Chocolate Pomegranate, Triple
Chocolate Chunk, and the brand-new (limited edition!) Chocolate Fig. These
are our very favorite way to kick a chocolate craving STAT! Look for 'em in
the freezer aisle.
LightFull Satiety Smoothies, Mango Oasis
PER SERVING (one 8.5-oz. bottle): 90 calories, 0g fat, 70mg sodium, 38g
carbs, 5g fiber, 11g sugars, 5g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
Just when we thought these decadent and delicious smoothies could not
possibly get any better... they did! They now come in bottles with REAL lids
(as opposed to those packs you stab with a plastic straw). And the newest
flavor -- Mango Oasis -- is awesome! But try the others too. There's
Chocolate Satisfaction, Peachy Cream, Strawberry Bliss, and Café Latte.
OCocos Organic Baked Chocolate Crisps, Original
PER SERVING (1 package): 90 calories, 2g fat, 50mg sodium, 16g carbs, 1g
fiber, 6g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
These crunchy little wafers (which are baked, not fried!) are light yet super-
satisfying. Each crisp tastes unbelievably good and is filled with organic
ingredients like dark cocoa powder and real vanilla. And the 90-calorie,
single-serving bags really give those 100-calorie packs a run for their
money! These "thincredible" (their word, not ours -- but we like it!) crisps
come in two more tasty flavors -- Cinnamon and Mocha. But the original
ones are our go-to O'Coco's.
Crum Creek Almond Biscuties
PER SERVING (4 cookies): 137 calories, 4.5g fat, 30mg sodium, 18g carbs,
2g fiber, 9g sugars, 5g protein -- POINTS® value 3*
Crum Creek has been busy conjuring up snacks lately, and their newest
treat is a perfect addition to our natural foods list. These thin, biscotti-like
cookies are full of almonds, raisins and spices -- and they're DELICIOUS.
Just be careful not to eat the entire 15-cookie pack in one sitting (eeeks!).
Erin Baker's Organic Brownie Bites, Classic Walnut
PER SERVING (1 Brownie Bite): 100 calories, 2.5g fat, 70mg sodium, 18g
carbs, 2g fiber, 10g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
These small, soft, cookie-like brownies are full of nuts and chocolate chips.
Their texture is right on for a brownie fix, and they taste really good (and
healthy, too!). These also come in two other flavors -- Chocolate Chip Mint
and Double Chocolate Chip. Yum and YUM!
HG Tip! Look for these natural sweet treats in the natural foods aisle of your
favorite supermarket or at natural foods stores (like Whole Foods).
