V8 Infused WaterV8 Infused Water - This is totally the beverage of the summer. The wildly refreshing, lightly flavored sippers have a full serving of veggies in each bottle... but what's not in the bottle? Artificial sweeteners and flavors! In Black Cherry Pomegranate (our fave), Cucumber Lime, and Mandarin Orange Ginger, each 16-oz. bottle contains just 30 calories, 0g fat, 50mg sodium, 7g carbs, 0g fiber, 6g sugars, and 0g protein (PointsPlus® value 1*). Find it nationwide at Target and Walgreens locations, and stock up...

Green Giant Fresh Cauliflower Crumbles - Game changer, you guys... Cauliflower is a great super-sizer/swap for potatoes and rice, but breaking it down is pretty time consuming. Even the bagged florets are often too big and need to be roughly chopped. But these new bitty bits of pure cauliflower are good to go! Each serving (about 3/4 cup) has 20 calories, 0g fat, 25mg sodium, 4g carbs, 2g fiber, 2g sugars, and 2g protein (PointsPlus® value 0*). Find them at Target and select grocery stores nationwide...

Mini Perfect Bars - Are you hip to Perfect Bars? They're delicious, gluten-free, all-natural treats that are loaded with superfoods and free of refined sugars. But even the Lite ones can be a calorie commitment. Enter these 100-cal Minis! In Peanut Butter and Almond Butter, each bar has 100 calories, 6g fat, 20mg sodium, 8g carbs, 1g fiber, 6g sugars, and 4 - 5g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). Find 'em nationwide in the refrigerated section at Whole Foods, 7-Eleven, and select grocery chains... or just order online. Yum!

And as you may know, we're obsessed with Starbucks-owned Teavana. Well, this Wednesday (June 10th), Teavana stores are giving away free 16-oz. Pineapple Berry Blue iced teas in celebration of National Iced Tea Day. Request it unsweetened, and add your no-cal sweetener of choice for a calorie-free sipper. Or get the sweetened version -- only 45 calories, 5mg sodium, 11g carbs, and 11g sugars (PointsPlus® value 1*). See you there!

The Buzz…

Subway Ditches Artificial IngredientsThe latest company saying sayonara to artificial ingredients? Subway! The sandwich chain recently announced all artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives will be gone by 2017. We wonder who'll be next... ***We've all got foods we find super addictive, but science has gone ahead and declared a pack of nine overall winners (or should we say, losers?). A recent study found that according to the Yale Food Addiction Scale (which is apparently a thing), highly processed foods are most addictive. The big nine? Pizza, chocolate, chips, cookies, ice cream, French fries, cheeseburgers, regular soda, and cake. Might we suggest these simply cooked alternatives? Baked Kale chips and Grin 'n Carrot Fries***On the other side of the food spectrum, find out which foods can actually help you burn fat faster. Read up on nine metabolism boosters from our pals 'n partners at About.com Health. ***Find that you like tomato juice… but only on airplanes? Same here, and apparently there's a scientific reason for it. A new study discovered that loud environments like planes can enhance the savory flavors in foods rich in amino acids. And tomatoes are one of those foods. Uh, can someone come shout at us while we eat this saucy spaghetti squash? ***And take a peek into the future of grocery shopping… Milan's recent World's Fair featured Italian supermarket chain Coop's idea of what supermarkets may eventually look like. Our favorite part? Pick up an item (like a tomato), and instantly get a screen of data showing where it was grown, its nutritional info, and its carbon footprint. WOW! And that's all we've got. 'Til next time… Chew the right thing!
