Entire recipe: 167 calories, 0.5g fat, 59mg sodium, 38g carbs, 5g fiber, 25.5g sugars, 4.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*

Smoothies are great, but some recipes have either a bazillion ingredients or a bazillion calories (or BOTH). Frankly, we don't have the patience for either. This simple blended beverage is sweet, creamy, and quick to throw together. Put it in a travel cup, and sip it on your way out the door...

As much as we like eating hot dogs on buns (the way nature intended), we also like to change things up now and then. You'll probably blow your friends' minds when you serve up these skewers at your next backyard bash -- and they'll be too busy happily chewing to notice how easy said skewers must've been to make.

1/4th of recipe (2 taquitos): 158 calories, 3g fat, 363mg sodium, 21.5g carbs, 2g fiber, 2g sugars, 8.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*

Forget the fryer! Baked taquitos are where it's at, and these no-meat versions are turbo tasty. They'll satisfy a Mexican-food craving for well under 200 calories. Grab some salsa, and dip away! Pssst... Prefer chicken? A five-ingredient recipe is right this way.

Hungry Girl's Saucy Eggplant Patty Tower
  Saucy Eggplant Patty Tower

Entire recipe: 280 calories, 6g fat, 905mg sodium, 31.5g carbs, 15g fiber, 9g sugars, 25g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*

When you want to stick a fork into a big pile of food, this enormous tower will satisfy you every time. Plus, it's meatless. And, it's got comfort-food appeal. Did we mention it's delicious and crammed with protein?! Oh, how many more reasons do you need? Make this ASAP!

1/4th of recipe (1 heaping cup): 222 calories, 5.5g fat, 772mg sodium, 35g carbs, 6g fiber, 6g sugars, 8.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*

Sure, instant mac 'n cheese is easy to make. But did you notice the "EZ" in this recipe's name? It's not in there by accident -- this cheesy mac takes almost no time to put together, and SURPRISE! It's a lot lower in fat than instant mac.

  Stuffed Chick Cordon Bleu

Entire recipe: 222 calories, 4.5g fat, 692mg sodium, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 40g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

One of the easiest ways to zazzle up chicken? Pound it thin, and roll it up with some tasty surprises inside! This is the first stuffed chicken recipe we ever created, but more super-easy trio rollups have since come out of the HG kitchen... from the salsa-rific to the Cobb-salad-inspired. YUM.

  Bacon Cheeseburger Patty

This isn't your average bacon cheeseburger. This patty has soft Swiss cheese and crumbled bacon stuffed right inside it. The oozy deliciousness cannot be resisted, so don't bother trying. Give in to this tasty burger! And click here for burger-stuffing tips...

Hungry Girl's Freezy-Cool Banana Whoopie Pies
  Freezy-Cool Banana Whoopie Pies

1/4th of recipe (1 whoopie pie): 150 calories, 2g fat, 155mg sodium, 34g carbs, 9g fiber, 18.5g sugars, 4g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*

Finally, making whoopie pies with Vitalicious VitaTops has been a trick of ours for ages. And while they're totally great made with just a couple of ingredients (VitaTop + whipped topping), adding sliced banana makes them extra special! So whip some up now, pop 'em in the freezer, and you'll be ready when that snack attack hits. (You know it will eventually.)
