Kashi Bowls Frozen Entrées

1 entrée: 260 - 340 calories, 8 - 9g total fat (1 - 1.5g sat fat), 270 - 440mg sodium, 42 - 59g carbs, 7 - 11g fiber, 5 - 19g sugars, 9 - 10g protein -- SmartPoints® value 8 - 12*

Kashi has overhauled its frozen-meal line, and we're seriously impressed! Each portion-controlled meatless meal features tasty grains, super seeds, roasted veggies, and savory sauce. Mmmm! Choose from Chimichurri Quinoa, Sweet Potato Quinoa, Black Bean Mango, and Amaranth Polenta Plantain... Or don't choose; get 'em all!

Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Cheerios

3/4 cup: 110 calories, 2g total fat (0g sat fat), 120mg sodium, 22g carbs, 2g fiber, 8g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

Ready or not, pumpkin season has arrived. And since one can only have so many pumpkin spice lattes, expand your repertoire to include this cereal! These Os are totally tasty and, since they're Cheerios, you know they're made from heart-healthy oats. Eat 'em while they're around -- for a limited time only!

Angie's Boom Chicka Pop Snack Packs

1 package (about 2 - 2 1/2 cups): 80 - 140 calories, 4.5 - 8g total fat (0 - 0.5g sat fat), 80 - 110mg sodium, 11 - 18g carbs, 2g fiber, 0 - 8g sugars, 1 - 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 2 – 5*

Perfect snack alert! It's TOO easy to plow through an entire multi-serving bag of ready-to-eat popcorn without even thinking about it... especially when said popcorn is as yummy as Angie's. Good news: The brand is now offering its classic Sea Salt and Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn flavors in mini bags! Available nationwide at Target, Stop & Shop, Raley's, HyVee, and Jewel, plus online through the Angie's website. Score!

This Week's 3 Things to Know…

Instagram updates: Lolly is on Instagram, and exclusive Hungry Girl content is on the way!

Super fans of HG Lisa's adorable pup Lolly have a new account to follow… That's right, Lolly is now on Instagram as reallylolly. She's basically the cutest and sweetest ever -- follow that dog! Also, keep an eye on the newly amped-up Hungry Girl Instagram account, especially the stories (the photo app's new Snapchat-like feature). We'll be posting behind-the-scenes stuff you can only see there: recipe tasting, product sampling, and more. Don't miss out!

New Fitbit fitness trackers have arrived: Introducing the Flex 2 and Charge 2!

We're total Fitbit fans, so we're extremely happy to hear about the sleek new versions. The Flex 2 is 30 percent smaller than the original and features the first-ever swim-proof band. And the Charge 2 is great for people who want even more detailed info. It offers new tools like cardio snapshots, better heart-rate tracking, and a larger display. Looking to upgrade or just finally get one of your own? Check 'em out on Amazon!

The biggest source of junk-food consumption isn’t fast food, convenience stores, or vending machines...

It’s supermarkets! A recent survey revealed that the majority of sugary beverages and energy-dense, nutrient-poor foods are purchased at the grocery store, not those impulse-driven locations. The takeaway here? Awareness is key. When you make a food-shopping run, always bring a list of smart selections (like our 2016 supermarket list); then stick to it! And never shop hungry...

Chew on this:

And a very happy National Chocolate Milkshake Day to you on this September 12th! Upgrade that, and make this PB Chocolate 'Nana Smoothie instead...

SmartPoints® value* not what you expected?
