Hungry Girl Goes... In Search of New Quickie Breakfast Finds!
Need breakfast fast? Keep these guilt-free items around and you're golden...
Egg Beaters Three Cheese
I love fat-free liquid egg substitute... Just pour it into a large microwave-safe mug (sprayed with nonstick spray), and nuke it until cooked. It's my go-to, protein-packed breakfast. And with this new product, you don't even need any add-ins – there's real cheddar, Swiss and provolone already mixed in! Easy cheesy...
Each 3-tbsp. serving has 25 calories, 0.5g fat, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 4g protein, and a PointsPlus® value of 1.
BetterOats Lavish Dark Chocolate Old Fashioned Instant Oatmeal
Who says you can't have chocolate for breakfast? WRONG people, that's who! Show 'em how it's done with a bowl of this rich 'n hearty oatmeal. It's loaded with whole grains, flax and other good-for-you stuff, plus real dark chocolate morsels. Wow, I'd even eat it as dessert with a splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Yum!
Each 1-pouch serving has 160 calories, 2.5g fat, 33g carbs, 3g fiber, 4g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 4.
YoCrunch Breakfast Blends
Sweet 'n crunchy cereal with smooth 'n creamy yogurt is a PERFECT combo... especially when both are portioned out for you and ready to eat! These yogurt cups come with a separate container of cereal on top, so you won't end up with soggy topping. There are 4-oz. containers of fat-free vanilla yogurt with Fruity Pebbles or fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt with Honey Bunches of Oats, as well as 6-oz. containers of fat-free Greek yogurt (vanilla or strawberry) with Honey Bunches of Oats. Perfect any time of day!
Each container (4 - 6 oz.) has 100 - 200 calories, 0 - 2g fat, 21 - 34g carbs, 0 - 1g fiber, 3 - 11g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3 - 5.
Earnest Eats Hot & Fit Cereal
These hot-cereal blends are like nothing I've ever had before. The flavors are out-of-this world awesome, and the mix of items inside is flat-out impressive... things like amaranth, quinoa, nuts and dried fruit. There's American Blend (with cranberries and almonds), Asian Blend (with mango and green tea), and Mayan Blend (with cocoa, pumpkin seeds and cashews!). Just add water, heat and sweeten to taste. (They don't contain added sweeteners.)
Each 1/2-cup serving (uncooked) has 180 - 190 calories, 6 - 7g fat, 25 - 26g carbs, 5g fiber, 6 - 7g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 5.
Special K Flatbread Breakfast Sandwiches
AMAZING FROZEN BREAKFAST ALERT!!! I've always been a fan of Special K's snack bars, cereals, and other stuff, and now I've got another reason to say "yay" to the K – frozen breakfast sandwiches! And these are really SMART cuz they come on flat sandwich buns. Choose from Sausage, Egg & Cheese; Ham, Egg & Pepper Jack Cheese; and Egg with Vegetables & Pepper Jack Cheese. Chomp, chomp...
Each sandwich has 180 - 240 calories, 7 - 11g fat, 19 - 20g carbs, 3g fiber, 9 - 14g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 4 - 6.
Tabatchnick Steel Cut Oatmeal Singles
Steel-cut oatmeal is great – it's got more personality, flair, and TEXTURE than regular oats... and these heat 'n eat frozen bowls are perfectly portioned for one. That's right... frozen oatmeal! Choose from Old Fashioned, Apple Cinnamon, Cinnamon Spice, Wildberry and Maple Syrup and Brown Sugar. P.S. While you're in the freezer aisle, this company makes amazing frozen soups. LOVE 'EM!
Each 8-oz. bowl has 220 - 240 calories, 3g fat, 42 - 47g carbs, 4 - 5g fiber, 7g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 6.
