Hungry Girl Goes... In Search of Bread Items!
Doughy, fluffy, carby goodness can still be guilt-free! Read on for my new bread picks...
Thomas' Mini Pretz-a-bagels
If the thought of warm soft pretzels makes you happy, you've gotta try these. They have the doughy taste and texture of a soft pretzel in the form of a mini bagel. I love how each bag comes with a small packet of coarse salt — perfect for giving your Pretz-a-bagel that authentic fresh-from-the-vendor taste. Pop one in the toaster oven and enjoy!
Each bagel has 120 calories, 0.5g fat, 23g carbs, 1g fiber, 4g protein, and a PointsPlus® value of 3.
From the makers of low-calorie flatbreads come these new foldable ones — perfect for stuffing with all kinds of guilt-free goodies! I like 'em so much that I've partnered with Flatout on these, so you'll find Hungry Girl recipes and awesome suggestions right on the package when you buy them at Walmart Supercenters.
Each flatbread (2 adjoining pieces, or 3 pieces for the Sliders) has 90 - 140 calories, 1 - 2.5g fat, 15 - 26g carbs, 3 - 7g fiber, 6 - 8g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 2 - 4.
Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Sandwich Bread
There's nothing new about flat sandwich rolls. But a flat sandwich roll shaped like a smiling goldfish? Now that's innovative and super-cute! In Soft White, Soft 100% Whole Wheat, and Soft Honey Whole Wheat, these'll make lunchtime happy. The stats are worth smiling about, too!
Each slice (2 adjoining pieces) has 120 calories, 2g fat, 19 - 21g carbs, 3g fiber, 3 - 4g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.
Tumaro's Gourmet Tortillas New York Deli Style Wraps
These large-and-in-charge wraps are way different from anything else out there, and there's a flavor to satisfy everyone's taste buds. Do you flip over savory bagels? Try the Everything wrap! Deli-sandwich lovers will enjoy the Rye, Sourdough, and Pumpernickel ones. And the Cracked Pepper wrap will take your sandwich's flavor up a notch.
Each wrap has 80 - 100 calories, 2 - 2.5g fat, 17 - 21g carbs, 9 - 12g fiber, 5 - 9g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 2 - 3.
Sara Lee Thin Style Buns
Better late than never for Sara Lee's version of the oh-so-popular, 100-calorie flat buns. In Honey Wheat, Whole Grain White, 100% Multi-Grain, and 100% Whole Wheat, these are summertime staples for guilt-free burgers. Nicely done, SL!
Each bun has 100 calories, 1.5g fat, 20 - 21g carbs, 4 - 5g fiber, 4g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.
La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Whole Grain Fiber & Flax Corn Tortillas
The makers of my favorite tortillas just added a few more to the bunch. These are impressively low in the sodium department (15mg per serving), and they taste amazing. And look at all that fiber! You get two tortillas per serving — perfect for your next taco night...
Each serving (2 tortillas) has 90 calories, 1.5g fat, 21g carbs, 5g fiber, 2g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 2.
Oroweat Pocket Thins Flatbread
Think fluffy, rectangular pita pockets, perfectly portioned for your sandwich-stuffing pleasure. These taste great, and I love the fact that they're made with chia seeds, which are rich in omega 3s and pack all kinds of health benefits. Woohoo!
Each pocket has 100 calories, 1g fat, 21g carbs, 2g fiber, 3g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.
Wonder Smartwhite Bread
Another light bread option — because you can never have too many! With 33 percent less sodium than regular white bread and a nice amount of fiber and calcium, it's another great option out there. Look for the recently launched Smartwheat on shelves too.
Each serving (2 slices) has 100 calories, 1g fat, 23g carbs, 5g fiber, 5g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.
