100-calorie couples from HG  
Hungry Girl Today: 09.27.07

WEEKLY WEIGH-IN

Back by popular demand... It's MORE 100-calorie couples from HG!


1. Breyers Double Churn Free Ice Cream + Fat Free Reddi-wip

PER SERVING (1/2 cup French Chocolate ice cream with 4 tbsp. whipped
topping): 100 calories, ~1g fat, 55mg sodium, 24g carbs, 4g fiber, 15g
sugars, 3g protein = POINTS® value 1*

Both of these crazy-creamy kids are fat-free and delicious. Were these two
meant to be, or what?! Any time chocolate ice cream and a double portion of
whipped cream come together, it's a VERY good thing. And the fact that this
combo can be enjoyed for a mere 100 calories makes it that much more
exciting.

Heads up vanilla-lovers: The vanilla version of this fat-free ice cream also
makes a cute (and delicious!) 100-calorie couple with the Reddi-wip.



2. Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt + Sugar-Free Maple Syrup

PER SERVING (One 5.3-oz. container of yogurt with 20 calories' worth of
syrup): 100 calories, 0g fat, 139mg sodium, 13g carbs, 0g fiber, 6g sugars,
13g protein = POINTS® value 2*

Greek yogurt is AMAZING, and if you haven't given it a whirl, now is SO the
time! Fage Total 0% (the creamiest fat-free Greek yogurt in the universe)
has been spotted cozying up to sugar-free maple syrup, and we totally
support this couple (and they make a lot more sense than Tom & Katie).
There are lots of sugar-free syrups out there with sweet, rich, maple flavor
and only 10 - 35 calories per quarter-cup. And they go perfectly with the
slightly tart taste of Greek yogurt. If you're not a fan of maple, no worries --
Fage is fickle. When it comes to 100-calorie couples, this yogurt's also been
linked to blueberries (1/4 cup), freeze-dried fruit like Gerber Mini Fruits (a
little less than 1/4 cup), Better'n Peanut Butter (a little less than 1/2 tbsp.),
and Smucker's Sugar Free Preserves (those two even made one of our
previous Hot Couples lists!).



3. Jell-O Sugar Free Vanilla Pudding Snack + Canned Pure Pumpkin

PER SERVING (1 pudding snack with 1/2 cup pumpkin): 100 calories, 1.5g
fat, 186mg sodium, 24g carbs, 4.5g fiber, 4g sugars, 3g protein = POINTS®
value 1*

Ready for the most decadent, super-simple, and delicious fall dessert?
Simply combine the contents of your pudding snack with a half-cup of the
orange stuff. Mix well and, if you like, add a little Splenda and/or pumpkin
pie spice (or cinnamon and nutmeg). We promise, this treat is good enough
to serve to guests who don't believe in guilt-free grub. Mmmmm!



4. Rice Krispies Treats Bar + Smucker's Sugar Free Strawberry Preserves

PER SERVING (1 Original ready-to-eat bar with 1 tbsp. preserves): 100
calories, 2.5g fat, 105mg sodium, 22g carbs, 0g fiber, 8g sugars, <1g protein
= POINTS® value 2*

Here's an unlikely couple. Did you ever think of taking a crunchy Rice
Krispies Treat and plopping a heap of sugar-free preserves on top? Neither
did we, until one day we were craving something decadent and fruity at the
HG HQ. We got a little creative and set these two up on a blind date -- and
boy did they hit it off! Try it for yourself and see -- they're a fantastic team.
FYI, Smucker's SF Preserves come in tons of fabulous flavors (try this out
with others, too!), and they're available sweetened with either Splenda OR
NutraSweet.



5. Fuji Apple Slices + T. Marzetti Light Caramel Apple Dip

PER SERVING (generous 3/4 cup apple slices with 1 tbsp. caramel dip): 100
calories, 1g fat, 39mg sodium, 26g carbs, 2g fiber, 17g sugars, 0.5g protein
= POINTS® value 2*

Apples and caramel have had a "thing" for each other FOREVER. They're
pretty much meant to be. So this couple shouldn't exactly come as a surprise
to you. Sure you can buy this EXACT pair at McDonald's for similar stats, but
it's REALLY fun to get these guys together in your own kitchen! Plus Mickey
D's peels their apples, so you miss out on some of the fiber our pair packs
in. Slice a small apple (and we mean one that's about 4 oz.) and let the
dipping begin! OR drizzle that caramel all over your apple slices for some
sticky sweet fun! Pssst... Look for T. Marzetti's stuff in the produce section of
the supermarket, and click here to find out which stores near you stock the
dip.
