New Fast Finds for Summer (and a Taco Bell Protein Menu Update)!

Grab a Tall unsweetened drink for 0 calories, or get it sweetened for 60 calories (PointsPlus® value 2*).

Taco Bell Protein Menu News! We were so excited when we heard T. Bell was test-marketing a protein-packed menu of lightened-up items. Well, we're thrilled to announce that the official Power Protein Menu is now being tested in Dayton, Ohio... and hopefully more cities soon! The 270-calorie double-chicken bowl with black beans, roasted corn salsa, and guac is looking pretty good to us...

Target Gets Simply Balanced with Nutritious New Lineup!

A brand-new better-for-you collection of nearly 250 products is rolling out at Target locations this year! The Simply Balanced line consists of snacks, cereal, drinks, etc., made with wholesome ingredients and free of artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives. The line's also smart when it comes to sodium content. Here are a few of the products already on shelves that have piqued our interest...

Popcorn Chips - Choose from Sea Salt, White Cheddar, and (YUM!) Sun-Dried Tomato. Enjoy 15 chips for 120 calories and 3 - 3.5g fat (PointsPlus® value 3*).

Fruit Crispies Snacks - These look AWESOME! In Strawberry and Mango Passion Fruit, they're made from fruit puree, juice, and crispy rice. Have 12 pieces for 110 calories and 0g fat (PointsPlus® value 3*).

Baked Potato Crisps - Crunch into Sea Salt & Vinegar and Sea Salt & Pepper snacks. A 12-chip serving has 120 calories, 3g fat, and 4g fiber (PointsPlus® value 3*). That's TWICE the fiber of most baked potato chips...

The Buzz…

What choices do YOU make at a restaurant when you're trying to eat lighter? In a recent survey, 39 percent of people polled said they're likely to order a salad as their meal when they want to eat healthier. WARNING: Salads are NOT always the smartest picks on the menu. As you may already know, they can contain a shocking number of calories and fat grams. (Click for proof!) Better ideas? Order a lean-protein entrée (like 28 percent of the survey takers!) or follow in the footsteps of the 16 percent who order no dressing, sauce, or gravy (or get it on the side). ***If you've been anxiously awaiting the return of Twinkies, good news: The iconic snack cakes will be back on shelves July 15th. (Pssst... We hope the Hostess 100 Calorie Packs will come back too.) For a guilt-free swap, grab a cream-filled 90-calorie Weight Watchers Golden Sponge Cake! ***Here's some interesting consumer news: A new survey found that 25 percent of respondents are shopping at convenience stores as often as -- or MORE often than -- they shop at regular grocery stores. Some of the top purchases at those stores are soda, snacks, and candy, so this could be an unhealthy trend. Most convenience stores DO, however, have smart options...
