Ronzoni 150 Pasta
In the 'Zoni!
Spotted on Shelves...

Ronzoni 150 Calories Pasta - Calorie-slashed pasta is our jam. So this new line from Ronzoni with 25 percent fewer calories than traditional pasta snagged our attention right away. Plus, it has extra fiber! In Penne, Rotini, and Thin Spaghetti, a 2-oz. uncooked serving has 150 calories, 1g fat, 50mg sodium, 41g carbs, 13g fiber, 1g sugars, and 7g protein (PointsPlus® value 4*). Currently available at Publix locations -- but we'd bet it'll be popping up at stores nationwide before you know it!

Folgers Flavors - Fun innovation alert: Squeeze some tasty flavor (and a little sweetness) into your java with these new coffee enhancers from Folgers! Available in Caramel, Mocha, Hazelnut, and Vanilla, each serving is calorie-free, sugar-free, sodium-free, etc. Now available in supermarkets nationwide. P.S. Pack a bottle in your purse to zazzle up blah coffee anywhere you go...

Annie's Pizza Poppers and Mini Pizza Bagels - Who's ready for a petite-pizza party? The goodies in both lines come in Three Cheese, Combination (uncured pepperoni and Italian sausage), and Uncured Pepperoni. Plus, no artificial flavors, no synthetic colors, meats without added nitrates or nitrites… Nice! A 6-piece serving of the Poppers has 180 - 200 calories, 5 - 8g fat, 300 - 390mg sodium, 26 - 27g carbs, 1g fiber, 1 - 3g sugars, and 7g protein (PointsPlus® value 5 - 6*); a 4-piece serving of Bagels has 200 calories, 6g fat, 440 - 500mg sodium, 26 - 27g carbs, 2g fiber, 3g sugars, and 10g protein (PointsPlus® value 5*). Find these exclusively at Target.

Breakfast Finds with a Boost! (Protein, Fiber & More)

Thomas' Double Protein Oatmeal English Muffins and High Fiber English Muffins - Um, SCORE. The Double Protein muffins are sweet with a hint of cinnamon, and each has 150 calories, 1g fat, 210mg sodium, 26g carbs, 1g fiber, 2g sugars, and 7g protein (PointsPlus® value 4*). The High Fiber picks pack 8 grams of fiber in addition to 100 calories, 1g fat, 230mg sodium, 28g carbs, <1g sugars, and 3g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). Awesome!

Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes Protein Packed Flapjack and Waffle Mix - Have you seen or tried this pumped-up mix? The just-add-water newbie is supercharged with protein! We're not quite sure what "Power Cakes are not for the faint-hearted" means, but we're intrigued… 190 calories, 2g fat, 395mg sodium, 30g carbs, 5g fiber, 3g sugars, and 14g protein (PointsPlus® value 5*) per 1/2 cup of mix. (We spotted it in Target, but you can also order online.)

Dunkin’ Go Bar - Yes, that's Dunkin' as in Dunkin' Donuts! These new chewy granola bars are made with the flavor of DD's Original Blend Coffee. WHOA. Each bar has 220 calories, 7g fat, 100mg sodium, 32g carbs, 5g fiber, 11g sugars, and 7g protein (PointsPlus® value 6*), plus 8 B-vitamins, 12g whole grains, and 12mg caffeine.

Hungry Girl How-To: Growing Oatmeal!
Hungry Girl How-To:
Growing Oatmeal!
 
The Buzz…

It's time for another fun Hungry Girl "How-To" video, this one demonstrating… GROWING OATMEAL! If you've always wondered what the deal is with our growing-oatmeal recipes, quit wondering and start watching (and cooking)… ***Coming soon, look for StarKist Tuna Creations Lemon Pepper and Sweet & Spicy in larger "Outdoors" pouches, decked out in limited-edition camo-print packaging. Why? StarKist has partnered with Wounded Warrior Project, pledging $100,000 to help support wounded US veterans. Eat your tuna, and click here to read more about the nonprofit organization. ***Another great merger of food and charity? Check out this app: FoodTweeks donates to food banks when you save calories! Thinking of eating something unhealthy? Tell FoodTweeks -- the app will suggest ways to cut the calories, and then donate to a food bank to "distribute" the calories saved to feed those in need. VERY interesting. ***Speaking of technologically enhanced calorie counting… Curious about activity monitors (like FitBit and BodyMedia) and whether they actually help people lose weight? A recent study found that while some do, others fall short and are missing things that would enable the user to reach their goals. Do your research before you buy! ***Finally, the latest flavor being tested at Starbucks has the Internet buzzing -- the new Dark Barrel Latte was created to taste like a dark stout beer. Awesome or aw-heck-no? And that's all we've got. HG out!
