Super-Helpful Happenings in the Supermarket World!

Lookin' for Extra-Lean Beef? Just keep an eye out for the American Heart Association's Heart-Check mark! Three more cuts recently qualified for the special marking, making it easier than ever to spot the extra-lean options. The Heart-Check symbol can now be found on USDA Select grades of sirloin tip steak, bottom round steak, top sirloin filet, top sirloin kabob, top sirloin stir-fry, and boneless top sirloin petite roast. "Meat" ya at the market!

Baffled by Recyclables? Get ready to spend less time standing over the trash wondering what can and can't be recycled. Beginning this month, Kellogg's and Kashi products will include How2Recycle labels. The simple markings show which package components can be recycled as well as other helpful info. Yoplait products also have the mark! It's getting easier to be green...

And in related news, click here for a slideshow of 20 ways you might be overspending on your groceries. One of the most interesting? Buying items stocked at eye level, where the priciest items are displayed. Look up high and down low for the best prices. (Awesome tip!)

The Buzz…

We're not entirely sure how we feel about this, so let's discuss. In the UK, Coca-Cola is replacing regular Sprite with a lower-calorie version that's partially sweetened with stevia. We like the idea of a calorie-slashed option, but we're unsure about the decision to replace the standard soda altogether. What do YOU think? Let's talk soda over on Facebook. ***Having trouble finding Flatout Hungry Girl Foldit Flatbreads at Walgreens? (They sell out fast!) GOOD NEWS! The amazing guilt-free flatbreads will be back in stock for the entire month of April as part of a special promotion. If you don't see 'em, REQUEST 'EM! ***Remember the nonfrozen Greek yogurt that Pinkberry was testing out? Starting today, Pinkberrygreek is available nationwide! A 5-oz. serving of the nonfat yogurt has 80 calories and 15g protein. Can't wait to load up ours with fresh-fruit toppings! ***Interesting news. A new article in Advances in Nutrition reports tremendous evidence that the human body processes high-fructose corn syrup and table sugar in exactly the same way. And while HFCS consumption in the US has gone down since 1999, obesity rates are still rising. Fair point, science peeps. Perhaps we should pay more attention to our overall calorie and sugar intake... ***Finally, Happy Birthday, Weight Watchers! The double W recently turned 50 years old. Looking good! And that's all we've got. HG out!
