HG Lisa's Must-Click Picks (Food Finds & More)
We're all about scouring shelves and websites for AMAZING food finds, kitchen gadgets, and more. Here's a group of HG Lisa's HAND-SELECTED picks that are dominating Hungryland (and her personal kitchen) RIGHT NOW!
How CUTE are these foodie pool floats?! We're obsessed, and you will be too. BTW, that's Lisa's pool they're floating on in the photo! Check out the donut, ice cream sandwich, Smarties, Tootsie Roll, and pizza slice... Your pool will never be the same!
2 tbsp.: 45 calories, 1.5g fat, 90mg sodium, 5g carbs, 1g fiber, 3g sugars, 4g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
Made from defatted ground peanuts, this miracle product is super low in calories and fat! Add a little water, and it turns into peanut butter. It's also amazing in smoothies, baked goods, pancakes... Pretty much anywhere you'd want a dose of PB flavor without the guilt. WE LOVE THIS STUFF!
1/2 cup: 200 calories, 4g fat, 370 - 390mg sodium, 25g carbs, 5g fiber, 9g sugars, 20g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*
Pancakes are fantastic, but pancakes PACKED WITH PROTEIN are BETTER. This mix comes in Buttermilk and Chocolate Peanut Butter, and it's perfect 'cuz you get the decadence of fluffy pancakes, a nutritious boost of fill-you-up protein, and a nice amount of fiber too! TOTALLY worth ordering online.
This is the BEST little blender in the whole wide world. It's IDEAL for fast smoothies -- you can drink right out of the blender cup! Wanna puree some veggies with broth for a quickie soup? Get out that Bullet! We also use ours for a couple of special HG tricks: turning bran cereal into high-fiber breadcrumbs (hello, baked-not-fried onion rings and more!), and shredding light string cheese for low-cal pizzas. No guilt-free kitchen is complete without one of these... CLICK!!!
Wanna turn veggies into a low-cal, high-fiber pasta swap with a twist of your wrist?! Yeah, we thought so! Spiralized veggies are all the rage, and this spiralizer a) works fantastically well, and b) is a total bargain. Just take a zucchini, cucumber, or comparable veggie, and twist it into the contraption like you're sharpening a pencil. Skinny strands of veggie noodles will instantly emerge! This gadget's a MUST!
One 0.7-oz bag: 90 calories, 4g fat, 0 - 280mg sodium, 7g carbs, 3g fiber, 1g sugars, 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
Crispy snacks rock, but rather than tearing through a bag of chips, eat something that'll keep you satisfied longer. The fiber and protein in these crunchy edamame (a.k.a. soybeans) will squash your hunger in ways that chips just can't pull off. They come in Lightly Seasoned, Sea Salt & Black Pepper, Onion & Chive, Jalapeño, Savoury Sesame, and Naked… Oh my! P.S. We LOVE that they come in 90-calorie packs. Try 'em out, and you'll be HOOKED.
This could not be more aptly named. It's a MUST-HAVE contraption for any tea lover. Add loose-leaf tea and hot water, and let it steep. Then just place it over your favorite mug, and the tasty tea pours itself! Pssst... Pick up some of Teavana's incredible loose-leaf tea while you're at it.
1 oz. (entire package): 80 - 100 calories, 0 - 2.5g fat, 0 - 10mg sodium, 17 - 23g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 11 - 15g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2 - 3*
A completely creative spin on traditional fruit snacks. These single-serving packets of peel-n-eat fruit-leather squares have 100 calories or less each, and the fruit combos are INCREDIBLE. In flavors like Island Mango (THE BEST!) and Banana Coconut, you will be HOOKED in no time. So get clickin'!
