New Varieties of Sargento Ultra Thin Sliced Cheese
The Best Thing Since
Sliced Cheese!
Spotted on Shelves...

New Varieties! Sargento Ultra Thin Slices - Ready to make some super-awesome cheeseburgers? Good, because there are a few new options in this thin-sliced line of all-natural cheese: Longhorn Colby (sweet and creamy), Baby Swiss (mild and buttery), and Cheddar-Jack (self-explanatory). Each 3-slice serving has 110 - 130 calories, 8 - 10g fat, 60 - 200mg sodium, 0 - 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, and 8g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). That's only around 40 calories and 3g fat per slice!

Tyson Grilled & Ready Pulled Chicken Breast - This heat 'n eat chicken is seasoned, shredded, and ready to pop on a flat bun with your favorite BBQ sauce! A 2-oz. serving has 80 calories, 2.5g fat, 460mg sodium, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, and 13g protein (PointsPlus® value 2*). There's also a pork version with great stats -- 110 calories and 5g fat for a 2-oz. serving. Look for these newbies at select Target, Meijer, Wegmans, Harris Teeter, H-E-B, Publix, Giant Eagle, Ingles Market, and Kroger stores.

Rickland Orchards Greek On the Go! Greek Yogurt Coated Bites - These little round sweets are AWESOME! Some are coated with regular Greek yogurt, while others are hugged by dark-chocolate-flavored Greek yogurt. Have 1/4 cup Pretzel Bites, 17 Strawberry Bites, or 28 Caramel Bites for 150 - 190 calories, 8 - 9g fat, 10 - 90mg sodium, 19 - 28g carbs, 0 - 2g fiber, 12 - 24g sugars, and 1 - 2g protein (PointsPlus® value 4 - 5*). The strawberry and caramel treats are just now hitting shelves -- find 'em at Target and Walmart locations -- and the pretzels are at retailers nationwide. You can also buy these online!  

Trend Alert: High-Protein Frozen Desserts!

Forte High Protein Gelato: If you want a frozen treat that satisfies more than just your sweet tooth, sink your spoon into THIS. In Vanilla, Chocolate (our pick!), Ginger, and Espresso, a 4-oz. container has 160 calories, 2.5g fat, 70mg sodium, 18 - 20g carbs, 0 - 1g fiber, 18 - 19g sugars, and 15g protein (PointsPlus® value 4*). Track some down, or order online.

ProYo High Protein Frozen Yogurt: We mentioned this squeezable fro yo when it first made its debut, but now it's even easier to find (albeit mostly on the West Coast). Each tube has 160 calories, 2g fat, 60 - 75mg sodium, 17 - 18g carbs, 3g fiber, 14g sugars, and 20g protein (PointsPlus® value 4*). You read that right -- twenty grams of protein! Try all four flavors: Vanilla Bean, Banana Vanilla, Blueberry Pomegranate, and Dutch Chocolate.

And the crazy-delicious, ridiculously guilt-free goodie that likely set this trend in motion? Our beloved Enlightened The-Good-For-You Ice Cream bars -- only 70 - 80 calories each, with 8 - 9 grams of protein (PointsPlus® value 2*)!

Applebee's Weight Watchers Chicken Freshcado
Getting Fresh with Applebee's!
The Buzz...

The latest item to catch our eye at Applebee's? The new Chicken Freshcado on the Have It All menu! Stick your fork into grilled chicken that's topped with avocado relish (featuring pineapple, cucumber, and onions) and served with veggie-loaded rice... Just 440 calories and 10g fat (PointsPlus® value 11). ***Uh-oh. Check that tub of hummus in your fridge... Seven tons of hummus and dip products have been recalled from Target, Giant Eagle, and Trader Joe's due to possible listeria contamination. No illnesses have been reported, but click here for full recall info. ***A workout is a workout, no matter what you call it... Right? Wrong-O. Researchers compared two groups of women who walked roughly the same amount; the group that was told it was for "exercise" consumed more calories afterward than the group that was told they were walking for fun. We wonder if this works for everything... Who's up for a super-fun round of chores? ***Wanna know what's being served up at international locations of everyone's favorite coffee chain? At Starbucks this summer, residents of China will enjoy Dragon Dumplings, Peruvians will be sipping Lúcuma Crème Frappuccinos, peeps in Japan get Banana Frappuccinos, and the folks in Greece have Yogurt Frappuccinos. YUM! ***There's been a lot of talk lately about whether gluten has an affect on those without Celiac disease. Research is indicating that people with IBS who feel better on a gluten-free diet might actually be reacting to short-chain carbs called FODMAPs, not gluten. Click to read up -- very interesting! And that's all we've got. HG out!
