Fancy & Fiberized!
Spotted on Shelves...

Quaker High Fiber Instant Oatmeal - Infusing stuff with fiber is all the rage right now, and the latest product we've spotted with an insane fiber jolt is this new hot breakfast cereal from Quaker. Each packet is crammed with 10 grams of the stuff! A packet also serves up 160 calories, 2g fat, 34g carbs and a POINTS® value of 3*. Available in Cinnamon Swirl and Maple & Brown Sugar. (BTW, your average packet of oatmeal contains about 3g fiber.)

Healthy Choice Asian Inspired Café Steamers - Check out the snazzy flavors these babies come in -- Five Spice Beef & Vegetables, Sweet & Spicy Orange Zest Chicken, Sweet Sesame Chicken, and General Tso's Spicy Chicken. Just steam in the microwave and chew! These aren't supposed to be out for a few more weeks, but we've spotted two kinds in our local market (the Five Spice Beef and the Sweet Sesame Chicken), each with 310 - 330 calories, 5 - 6g fat, 49 - 50g carbs and 6 - 7g fiber (POINTS® value 6*). Weeee!

Eggo Bake Shop Swirlz - Oooooh, our waffley pals over at Eggo have gotten creative and put out a line of "Bake Shop" frozen treats. We're not in the habit of pushing sugary pastries for b-fast, but the new Bake Shop Swirlz in Cinnamon are a fantastic swap for freakishly fattening Cinnabon cinnamon rolls. Your average cinnamon roll contains more than 300 calories, nearly 15g fat, and 42g carbs (POINTS® value 7*), but one of these things has only 150 calories, just 3g fat, and 27g carbs (POINTS® value 3*). The swirly toaster treats also come in Strawberry, and those have 140 calories, 3g fat, and 27g carbs (POINTS® value 3*).
Starbucks Breakfast Sandwiches... They're Baaa-aaack!

Remember we told you that Starbucks was saying goodbye to their breakfast sandwiches because the aroma was interfering with coffee sales? People must've complained BIGTIME (probably HGers saddened by the thought of losing their precious on-the-go spinach 'n feta wraps!). So the peeps over at The 'Bucks have decided breakfast is BACK ON... Woohoo! This time around they'll be using less butter as well as a new type of cheese, in order to make the wraps less odiferous (aka smelly). Very interesting! In the meantime, feel free to take advantage of this recipe swap we created several months ago to prepare for the loss of our favorite b-fast offering. IT ROCKS HARD!

Things You NEED to See or Know...

Why Dieters Don't Always Lose Weight - Check out this video made by the super-smart Leigh Peele. It shows how most people who assume they're being serving-size savvy by using measuring cups and spoons are actually taking in way more calories due to inaccurate measuring. Warning: This may hit home, people!

Pure Lies From Purely Juice? - You know how we LOVE outing companies who've been busted for false label claims? Check this out. Our pals over at POM were so sure that their competitor Purely Juice wasn't being truthful on its bottles -- which touted "100% pure pomegranate juice" -- that they took the company to court. The outcome? The Purely Juice products in question were found to contain mostly cane sugar and corn sweetener, with a very small amount of actual pomegranate solids. Yikes! However, the folks at Purely Juice insist they've stopped production of the faulty juice, and have since resolved the problem.

The Buzz...

Frozen Yogurt News! TCBY is proud to announce Waffle Cone Wednesday! Each hump day, at participating locations, you can get a ginormous yogurt-filled waffle cone for 99 cents instead of the usual $3 or so. Yowsa! Our advice? Fill it with one of the fat-free yogurts and use the cone mainly as a bowl (only chew a few bites of it -- the calories in that thing add up!). ***Be On TV Alert! If you're an outgoing, TV-friendly chef in the Tri-State area (or know someone who is), here's a chance to apply to be on a brand-new Food Network show. City Lights TV is searching for FOUR chefs to appear on a new reality series. Click here for all the details! ***Heads up, oatmeal chewers! The instructions on new tubes of Quick Quaker Oats (just the 42-oz. ones) are incorrect! For an optimal oatmeal eating experience, click here to view the correct prep directions. ***Did you know that people who live in older neighborhoods weigh an average of eight pounds less than people who live in newer 'hoods? The reason is that the older communities were built with pedestrians in mind, while modern areas are way less walker-friendly. Just something to keep in mind if you're planning to move. ***Are you getting enough fiber in your diet? Most Americans aren't. And now Benefiber is making it that much easier for you to add the stuff to your life with new Benefiber Stick Packs. Each single-serving, flavorless powder packet contains 15 calories and 3 grams of the Big F. Just empty one into some water and you are good to go. Find 'em at Wal-Mart. Ooooh, and click here for a free sample, while supplies last! That's all we've got. HG out!
