Hungry Girl Today: 2.26.09


There are a lot of food staples we use regularly here at the HG HQ, but some
are so multi-talented that we decided to dub them MVPs! Here's our TOP ATE
list of products that are workin' overtime for us!

1. Mann's Sunny Shores Broccoli Cole Slaw

PER SERVING (1 cup): 25 calories, 0g fat, 25mg sodium, 5g carbs, 3g fiber,
2g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 0*

Oh, broccoli slaw. We've loved you since 2005. As big fans of veggies and
bigger fans of not having to shred them ourselves, we use this sauceless
slaw mix for everything. Stir-fry it Asian-style, serve it pasta-like with tomato
sauce or even tomato soup (try it with #5 on this list!), mix it with tuna... the
choices are endless. Really! P.S. Check out its colorful sister slaw, Rainbow
Salad -- just as delicious, and pretty, too!

2. Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt

PER SERVING (One 6-oz. container): 90 calories, 0g fat, 65mg sodium, 7g
carbs, 0g fiber, 7g sugars, 15g protein -- POINTS® value 2*

There is no time of day we won't eat this creamy yogurt -- breakfast, lunch,
snack-time, dessert, whenever. It's like a blank canvas, just waiting for you
to turn it into something beautiful (and delicious). Add sugar-free preserves,
fruit (fresh, frozen, or freeze-dried), or spices (for a zesty, creamy dip). Or
use it straight as a sour cream substitute. Bonus: This stuff is PACKED with

3. Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations

PER SERVING (1/6th of package): 120 calories, 6g fat, 300mg sodium, 16g
carbs, <1g fiber, 3g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 3*

This new seam-free, ready-to-go refrigerated dough is great to have around.
It's actually Reduced Fat Crescent Roll dough in disguise! Bake little squares
of it and load 'em up as hors d'oeuvres, roll it up pinwheel-style around your
favorite things, make edible bowls by baking sections of it in a muffin pan,
etc. Get creative! And don't worry... you still get to pop it open by smashing
the tube against the counter. Weeeee!

4. Fiber One Bran Cereal (Original)

PER SERVING (1/2 cup): 60 calories, 1g fat, 105mg sodium, 25g carbs, 14g
fiber, 0g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 0*

Diehard fans are well aware of the love affair between F1 and HG. But for all
the new kids out there, here's a quick refresher course. Fiber One is a
delicious, crazy-high-in-fiber cereal that we like to play around with. We mix
it with yogurt, fruit, and other cereals to make parfaits, snack mixes, and
more. We grind it up into "breadcrumbs" for our famous faux-frying
technique (click & scroll for more on that) and our special high-fiber pie
crust. Basically, there's very little we won't do with this breakfast cereal.

5. Amy's Organic Light in Sodium Chunky Tomato Bisque

PER SERVING (1 cup): 120 calories, 3.5g fat, 340mg sodium, 21g carbs, 2g
fiber, 14g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 2*

This is hands-down the BEST canned tomato soup EVER. It's FANTASTIC all
alone, but we also like to throw in seafood, ground-beef-style soy crumbles,
Frank's RedHot, chicken chunks, fresh basil leaves, and/or reduced-fat Parm-
style grated topping. This soup also doubles as a creamy, slightly sweet
tomato sauce for veggies, chicken breasts, and pizza-inspired items. And it is
INCREDIBLE stir-fried with broccoli slaw. (Try it and see... PLEASE!)

6. Jell-O Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Pudding Mix

PER SERVING (1 unprepared serving, about 1 tbsp.): 25 - 35 calories, 0g fat,
300 - 320mg sodium, 6 - 8g carbs, 0 - <1g fiber, 0g sugars, 0 - <1g protein -
- POINTS® value 1*

Pudding mix isn't just for pudding anymore. We use the powdered stuff to
thicken up and add flavor to SO many things -- from shakes and oatmeal to
dips and desserts. Yup, we're "pudding" it in EVERYTHING. Tee-hee...

7. House Foods Tofu Shirataki Noodles

PER SERVING (4 oz., half a package): 20 calories, 0.5g fat, 15mg sodium, 3g
carbs, 2g fiber, 0g sugars, 1g protein -- POINTS® value 0*

We've told you this a bazillion times, these things are life-changing. Learn to
love them, people. The key to Tofu Shirataki success is to rinse well, dry
REALLY well, and stick with creamy sauces rather than watery ones. Other
than that, sky's the limit! Stir-frys, casseroles, soups, and even crab cakes
are in these noodles' repertoire. Have fun!

8. Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss Spreadable Cheese Wedges

PER SERVING (1 wedge): 35 calories, 2g fat, 260mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g
fiber, 1g sugars, 2.5g protein -- POINTS® value 1*

We may have saved the best for last here. These cheese wedges are SO
incredible, SO creamy, and SO delicious, we actually brought them to a lab
to see if they really have just 35 calories each. Thank goodness they do.
Use 'em as a cream cheese swap or a sandwich spread, or melt 'em into a
head-explodingly delicious sauce. Just EAT THEM!
