Starbucks Doubleshot Coffee & Protein - Wowzers -- these sweet 'n creamy coffee drinks have about as much protein as Greek yogurt! In Vanilla Bean, Dark Chocolate, and regular Coffee, each 8-oz. can has 200 - 210 calories, 2.5g fat, 115 - 120mg sodium, 33 - 34g carbs, 2g fiber, 20 - 21g sugars, and 20g protein (PointsPlus® value 6*). Find 'em in grocery stores, drug stores, and convenience stores. Pssst... To find out more, click NOW and watch HG Lisa's personal video review!

Pompeian Cooking Sprays - Joining that Grapeseed Oil spray we like so much are... Avocado Oil, OlivExtra Original (extra-virgin olive oil and canola oil), and Coconut Oil. Hooray! These nonstick sprays are free of propellants, CFCs, and other additives. A 1/4-second spray has 0 calories and 0 grams of fat, but (like all spray oils) those numbers are rounded down. This stuff is essentially pure oil, after all. A more realistic 1-second spritz has 15 calories and 1.5g fat (PointsPlus® value 0*). Still fantastic! Find them at Publix, ShopRite, Giant, Bi-Lo, Winn-Dixie, and other grocery stores.

Lightlife Smart Patties - Our buddies at Lightlife have got it going on when it comes to must-try meatless eats. The latest product on our radar? New meatless patties, in Original Burger with Quinoa and Black Bean Burger. Each patty has 100 calories, 2.5g fat, 300 - 330mg sodium, 10 - 11g carbs, 3 - 4g fiber, 2g sugars, and 10g protein (PointsPlus® value 2*). Click to locate. Light and smart indeed...  

Announcing... HG's Super-Fun Night Book Tour!

With a new book on the way -- The Hungry Girl Diet Cookbook: Healthy Recipes for Mix-n-Match Meals & Snacks -- Lisa Lillien (a.k.a. Hungry Girl herself) is hitting the road for a slew of Hungry Girl events across the USA. And this time, we're going all out, with events that are bigger and better than ever! This is no run-of-the-mill book tour, people. This is the HUNGRY GIRL SUPER-FUN NIGHT tour! Some deets about what you'll find...

Free Snacks! Walk away with a goodie pack crammed with freebies from HG favorites like Enlightened, Flatout, StarKist, Quest, Justin's, Matt's Munchies, JC's Nudies, and Simply Snackin. In addition, you'll get fistfuls of coupons for other HG go-tos like House Foods, Truvia, Garden Lites, and Dunkin' Donuts coffee. WOW!

Games, Prizes, and Awards! Brush up on your snack trivia, and ready your taste buds for "Name That Snack." You could win mega goodies! We'll also give out prizes as special awards to the fan who traveled the farthest to get there, the attendee who brings the most pals, and more. And, of course, we'll have raffle prizes too!

Selfies with Lisa, Plus No-Holds-Barred Q&A! Grab your camera and selfie it up, HG-style! Chat away, and ask Lisa your burning questions... like what snacks are in her purse at all times, how many steps she really racks up Housewalking, and what it was like hanging out with NKOTB members in her teen-magazine days...

The When and the Where... It all kicks off on April 28th, the very day the book is officially released. (Preorder it now!) Lisa's hitting up Philadelphia, PA; Morris County, NJ; Minneapolis, MN; Denver, CO; Phoenix, AZ; Detroit, MI; Cleveland, OH; Pittsburgh, PA; Indianapolis, IN; and Chicago, IL. Click for tour dates and more info!

Mark your calendar, coordinate with your pals, and get ready to have some serious fun. Go to our Facebook page to RSVP (optional, but do it!) and find out how you can volunteer at one of these events. WOOHOO!

The Buzz…

Has all this talk about The Hungry Girl Diet Cookbook made you curious about the #1 New York Times Best Seller it's based on?! Good news: The Hungry Girl Diet comes out in paperback TOMORROW! It's lighter in weight (just like you'll be), less expensive than hardcover (click around for the best deals), and perfect to pop into your purse or bag for support on the go. A must, people! ***You know that Housewalking thing we're always going on about (like in the above story)? Turns out there's even more scientific evidence that it's a smart move. A recent study found that interval walking (alternating slow and fast walking), done consistently over a long stretch of time, is effective in reducing the risk of lifestyle-related disease. Speaking of which, it's about time for a stroll… ***It's a cycle we know well: We stock up on fresh produce and inevitably end up pitching what goes bad before we can get to it. Wasting food and money is a bummer, so click here for five tips on how to avoid wasting fruit and veggies, from our pals and partners at About.com Health! ***Take a deep breath. Remain calm. The world may be running out of chocolate. (We said stay calm!) Chocolate researchers in England have a promising solution -- they've established an International Cocoa Quarantine Centre to grow around 400 kinds of cocoa and shield them from diseases. Intense, but this is chocolate; glad to hear they're taking this seriously. (Side note: Chocolate researcher is a real job?) And that's all we've got. 'Til next time... Chew the right thing!
