Bolthouse Farms Caramelized Sweet Onion Yogurt Dressing - We love BF's yogurt dressings, and this newbie packs flavor like a decadent party dip! Enjoy it on veggies and more -- a 2-tbsp. serving has just 40 calories, 2g fat, 120mg sodium, 4g carbs, 0g fiber, 4g sugars, and 1g protein (PointsPlus® value 1*).

And as convenience fiends, we're excited about these spuds in microwaveable bags!

Study Confirms We're Significantly More Likely to Maintain Healthy Habits When a Significant Other Is On Board

How many of us have cited our SO's less-than-healthy routine as a bad influence when we're trying to develop smart habits? Unofficial answer: Lots of us. Well, apparently, the opposite is also true. A recent study of over 3,700 couples found we're considerably more likely to quit smoking, get active, and lose weight when our partners are on the same track.

We found our own proof when we heard from couples who lost weight together on the Hungry Girl Diet. When Valerie and Ron teamed up last year, she lost 19 pounds, and he lost 40! Then there are Penny and Mitch, who lost 40 and 48 pounds respectively on the diet together! Last but not least, check out our own HG Diet VIP couple, Elizabeth and Brandon -- in just 4 weeks, they lost a combined 32 pounds. WOW. Now, we're not advocating giving an unsolicited copy of The Hungry Girl Diet as a Valentine's Day gift (unless you like sleeping on the couch), but attacking healthy goals with your sweetie is more than a great idea -- it's a recognized formula for success.

Wanna feed your sweetie something so good, they'll never guess it's guilt-free? Check out this slideshow of decadent HG desserts for date night. And don't miss three of our better-for-you chocolate fixes in this month's issue of Redbook. Happy almost Valentine's Day!

Study: We're more likely to stick with healthy habits if our partners are on the same track.
Diet as a Duo!
Fairlife Milk: 50 percent more protein
Dairy Milk Ditches Sugar
for Extra Protein!
The Buzz…

Here at HG, we've been embracing dairy milk for its impressive protein count... and that count just got better! Fairlife ultra-filtered lactose-free milk packs in 50 percent more protein than regular dairy milk, plus less sugar and more calcium! We're pretty jazzed about both the fat-free and the reduced-fat chocolate options... Rolling out nationwide this month. ***Not only can super-smart science types filter out milk sugars, apparently they've figured out how to un-boil an egg. The resulting findings are relevant to cancer research and fighting food waste... but if they can un-boil an egg, could they help us un-overcook fish? ***You know how we're always encouraging you to eat more fiber? You're welcome... New research links a high-fiber diet to a lower risk of death. Kinda makes you want to chow down on a bowl of Fiber One, huh? ***What kind of food is super popular in your state? Scope out this fun infographic, showing which foods are more popular than the national average, region by region. From the looks of it, no other state's residents are as into Taiwanese food as we are here in California. Interesting! And that's all we've got. HG out!
