Best Browns: To make her delicious, gluten-free hash brown quiche, Zelman uses one of two brands: Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, with just 70 calories and only 55 milligrams sodium in each half cup, or Ore-Ida Country Style Hash Browns, in the freezer section, with just 70 calories and only 20 milligrams sodium per serving.
Tops in Tortillas: Zelman keeps tortillas on hand as a low-calorie alternative to bread. La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious tortillas are a great source of fiber with very little fat. The White Whole Wheat variety is perfect for kids suspicious of whole grains. Garden of Eatin' Whole Wheat Organic Tortillas offer plenty of fiber and protein.
Super Salsas: Zelman prefers the flavor and low sodium content of fresh salsa, but she'll reach for jarred salsa in a pinch. She says two brands come close to homemade: Whole Foods 365 Salsa and Garden Fresh Gourmet salsas. Both contain chunky tomatoes and fresh herbs, few calories, and little sodium.
