Hungry Girl Greek Frozen Yogurt Review
Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien knows how to find the healthiest food at the grocery store and today she shared some of her best, and healthiest, finds in the frozen food aisle.
Steel Cut Oatmeal – Steel cut oats are a healthier alternative to regular oatmeal but many people are reluctant to buy them since they take a long time to cook. Hungry Girl said frozen steel cut oats are easier to cook. Simply toss them in the microwave for a minute and then enjoy.
Frozen Whole-Grain Low-Fat Waffles – Look for frozen waffles with only 80 calories and two to three grams of fiber.
Greek Frozen Yogurt – Greek frozen yogurt is becoming a popular alternative to ice cream because it is high in protein, low in fat and low in calories. You may even be able to find Greek frozen yogurt popsicles.
Frozen Strawberries – As long as they don’t contain extra syrup or are packaged in syrup, these are just as healthy as buying them fresh.
