Heads up: This product is shelf stable, not
frozen. The "freezer" in the name refers to the frozen chicken you add to it. The meal starters
come with either pasta or rice and a packet of sauce: Lemon Garlic Herb, Marsala, Southwestern, or Teriyaki. Prepared with chicken, a 1-cup serving has 210 - 240 calories and 2.5 - 6g fat (SmartPoints
® value 5 - 6*). Great additions to your pantry if you never know what to do with frozen chicken. Although, we'd totally bulk these up with veggies!
Del Monte Fruit Refreshers
1 cup: 90 - 100 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat fat), 10 - 60mg sodium, 22 - 25g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 19 - 23g sugars, 1g protein -- SmartPoints
® value 5 - 6*
Fruit cup upgrade
! We love kiddie classics with a grown-up twist. Grab a cup of either Pineapple in Passion Fruit Water or Mandarin Oranges in Coconut Water. They're lightly sweetened and made without any high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, or artificial sweeteners. How refreshing... Available at Walmart, Target, and WinCo nationwide.
3 Things to Know This Week…
Domino's Pizza is now delivering salads.
We're thrilled that the mega pizza chain has added fresh salads
to the list of items you can order with your pizza. (Heck, it makes a lot more sense than ordering sticks of cheese-covered bread with tomato dipping sauce to go with your slices of bread topped with cheese and tomato sauce.) In Classic Garden, Chicken Caesar, and Chicken Apple Pecan, a half-bowl serving has 190 - 210 calories and 4.5 - 9g fat (SmartPoints
® value 6 - 7*). The perfect way to make a slice or two of thin-crust pizza more filling!
Breakout Amazon find: Jordan's Skinny Mixes Barista Style Whipped Foam Topping!
This stuff is the key to creating a low-calorie latte at home with no special equipment. We love it so much! Can you blame us? It's sweet and creamy with zero calories and no sugar. Prepare your coffee however you like it, and then top it off with this foam
. In Marshmallow, Mocha, French Vanilla, and Caramel, this is totally worth ordering online
, especially since some of the flavors are Prime eligible.
More protein from plants may mean lower risk of death.
Considering reducing your meat intake? You want might want to after reading this. A new study

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