This Week's 3 Things to Know...

New at Wendy's: Strawberry Mango Chicken Salad

This limited-time-only salad is overflowing with flavor: diced mango, strawberries, honey-roasted sunflower seeds, grilled chicken, crumbly feta, and honey citrus vinaigrette! WOW. The full-sized salad without dressing has about 350 calories and 13g fat (SmartPoints® value 10*). Each packet of the dressing adds 60 calories and 3g fat (SmartPoints® value 3*); the salad comes with two packets, but a little is all you need! Available at participating Wendy’s locations through Labor Day.

Which dogs will get you walking the most?

Simply owning a dog won't transform you into a power-walking warrior... This recent study found that smaller dogs were less likely to be walked than larger pooches. Dogs were also less likely to be walked if there weren't parks in the area, if their owners thought they didn't like walks, or if the job could be outsourced to kids. Our advice? If you're lucky enough to have a furry canine friend, take him or her on walks no matter what the circumstances. No excuses, small-dog owners!

Worth ordering online: Know Better Foods

This company makes delicious muffins, crackers, waffles, and more, but get this: Said goodies are free from grains, gluten, wheat, soy, dairy, peanuts, and yeast! They're made with healthy ingredients like chia, flax, coconuts, almonds, and egg whites, and the taste is almost too good to be true! One of our favorites? The chocolate cupcake -- rich and fudgy with just 136 calories and 6g fat, plus 7g fiber and 10g protein (SmartPoints® value 4*). We'll be stocking up via Amazon!

And that's all we've got. 'Til next time... Chew the right thing!
