Supermarket Survival Guide (Tips & Picks)!
Puffed Cereal - This light 'n airy stuff is perfect for filling out a cereal bowl and using in recipes. If you don't see it with the boxed cereals, look for the bagged versions. There's puffed rice, puffed wheat, puffed corn... Mmmmm!
Fat-Free Yogurt & Cottage Cheese - Look for fat-free yogurt with about 100 calories per 6-oz. serving. Yoplait Light and Fiber One are my favorite kinds. Greek yogurt is a great protein-packed option; Fage Total 0% is the best (click here for the full 411!). Any brand of fat-free cottage cheese will do -- try using it in breakfast bowls like this one!
Popcorn - Go for 94% fat-free microwave-safe popcorn in portion-controlled bags -- these have about 100 calories each. Jolly Time, Orville Redenbacher, Pop Secret... they all make 'em!
Rice Cakes - Quaker makes a huge variety of these crispy treats -- from chocolatey kinds to cheesy ones. There are large ones and minis too. Eat 'em plain, load them up with toppings, or make recipes like these!
Frozen Meal Filler-Uppers - Even the best frozen meals could use some bulking up. Bean sprouts are good for noodle-packed Asian dishes. Fresh or frozen veggies are great for any type of entrée. But my FAVORITE thing to add to a frozen dinner? This next item...
Tofu Shirataki Noodle Substitute - Only 40 calories for an entire bag! Perfect for overly sauced meals. Find these near the tofu in the fridge section of the market, and click here for the full 411!
