Hungry Girl Today: 05.22.08
Super-low-fat chocolate-flavored peanut butter, 70-calorie snack bars, and
more?! Check out our awesome new food finds...
CP Shrimp Wonton Soup
PER SERVING (1 bowl with 5 wontons): 115 calories, 2g fat, 1,430mg
sodium, 17g carbs, <1g fiber, 2g sugars, 7g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
Yeah, we know it's May, but we're true soupies (that means we love soup).
So when we find a good soup, we yap about said soup -- no matter how cold
or hot it is outside. And our favorite of the moment is CP Shrimp
Wonton Soup. We found it at Costco in ginormous boxes, each containing 5
bowls of soup. You pop the top off, add water, loosely cover and nuke for a
few minutes, and, voila, you have an INSANELY great bowl of soup with FIVE
cute and delicious shrimp wontons (whole shrimp -- and NOT wimpy small
ones!). Okay, we know it's a little high in sodium -- but it's worth cutting out
salty foods for the rest of the day if need be! This soup is AMAZING, and we
love it. We'll be eating it ALL summer long, too, as our food choices are not
governed by the weather. Yeah, we're cool like that. Pssst... in addition to
Costco, look for these at Sam's Club, Sweetbay Supermarkets, and Harris
Gerber Graduates For Toddlers Yogurt Melts
PER SERVING (1/4 cup): 30 calories, 0g fat, 15mg sodium, 5g carbs, 0g
fiber, 4g sugars, 1g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
Here we go again, eating baby food. We can't stay away from it. This latest
find comes in Peach, Strawberry, and (our fave) Mixed Berries. These things
are INSANELY unique and delicious -- and like nothing we've ever tasted
before. Imagine popping an itty bitty meringue in your mouth, only instead of
having that hard sugary bite, it instantly turns into a warm puddle of yogurt
in an almost magical Willy Wonka kind of way (we know it sounds weird and
maybe even a little gross, but trust us, these things are INCREDIBLE).
They're made from freeze-dried whipped yogurt and fruit -- cool! And while
the back of the bag warns, "This product should only be fed to seated,
supervised children who are accustomed to chewing solid foods," we're being
rebellious yet again and eating it ourselves -- and we're not always seated
and/or supervised. Find these in the baby food aisle.
Promax 70 Calorie High Energy Snack Bars
PER SERVING (1 bar): 70 calories, 1.5 - 2g fat, 45 - 55mg sodium, 9 - 10g
carbs, <1g fiber, 6 - 7g sugars, 5g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
As crowded as the bar market already is, there's always room for a new bar,
if it's a goodie. And these 70-calorie bars from Promax are GREAT. Our issue
with so many bars is that they're often huge and have too many calories.
Anything over the 150-calorie mark heads from snack land into mini-meal
land, and we don't always want to eat a bar as a meal. These all-natural
bars -- which come in Cookies 'N Cream (white coating, chocolate innards),
Nutty Butter Crisp (tastes like Butterfinger!), and Double Fudge Brownie
(brownie-licious) -- hit it out of the park. Why? For starters, they taste
delicious (very dense and candy bar-ish in texture). They also pack in 5
grams of protein, so they're satisfying. And they contain just 70 calories,
which is the PERFECT amount for a cute little snack. We've found ourselves
reaching for these over all of our 100-calorie packs lately. Hmmmmmmm...

Better'n Peanut Butter, Chocolate
PER SERVING (2 tbsp.): 100 calories, 2g fat, 190mg sodium, 13g carbs, 2g
fiber, 2g sugars, 4g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
You may already know about Better'n Peanut Butter, the PB alternative with
practically half the calories and a fraction of the fat in regular peanut butter.
We use it in recipes (and we like it straight, too, but it's not for everyone!).
Well, the folks behind original Better'n PB have just released a CHOCOLATE
version that's FANTASTIC. Even if you don't love the original, we think you'll
feel differently about the sweet, slightly chocolatey version of this spread.
And if you're already a fan of Better'n PB, you will FLIP over this new one!
Here are some things we like to do with it. 1. Chill it in the fridge, and then
lick it off a spoon (no double dipping!). 2. Make chocolatey PB-ish baked
items (like guilt-free cupcakes and brownies) by swirling it into the batter. 3.
Spread it on rice cakes! This stuff ROCKS but is very hard to find in stores
(at least for now). Click here (or here) to order it!
