Foster Farms Savory Servings, Turkey Tenderloins, Chicken Breast Fillets, and Chicken Breast Tenders - WHOA is this line of seasoned poultry good! It features lots of delicious marinades (and they don't add silly amounts of fat or calories to your meat). A 4-oz. serving contains 110 - 130 calories, 1 - 1.5g fat, 2 - 7g carbs, 0g fiber, and 21 - 24g protein (POINTS® value 2 - 3*). Our favorites are the Fire Roasted Chipotle chicken and the Island Teriyaki turkey. Mmmmm!
Eggo Bake Shop Mini Muffin Tops - Oooooh, itty-bitty muffin tops that come in Blueberry, Chocolate Chip, and Chocolate Chocolate Chip. CUUUUTE! You get to eat a "set of 4", which is exciting. (Come on, FOUR muffin tops, people?!) The set has 140 - 150 calories, 5g fat, 21 - 22g carbs, 0 - <1g fiber, and 2 - 3g protein (POINTS® value 3*). But they're pretty much just like regular muffins, only smaller -- no fiber or fancy vitamins like our precious VitaMuffins (see below for more news on those).
Bacon Salt - We've mentioned this stuff before, but now it's actually getting great distribution -- and (reminder!) IT IS FANTASTIC. As embarrassing as it is, we are 100% hooked on it. It's bacon-flavored salt, it's vegetarian-friendly, and it has no calories. AHHHHHHHHH! Find it at select markets and online.

Does $$$ = Dieting Success?!
Money... The Great Weight Loss Motivator?!
A study recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association has found that money can be an extremely powerful motivator when it comes to losing weight. Three different groups were evaluated for this study. One group's participants were eligible to win money via a daily lottery if they achieved their goals. Members of another group could invest their own money to be matched and returned to them only if they were successful. The people in the third group simply attended monthly weigh-ins with no financial rewards. The study basically found that the first two groups lost WAY more weight than the group that received no financial incentive. You can read all about the study here. Some employers and health insurance companies have been trying out similar initiatives recently, in hopes of reducing healthcare costs. Why not test this weight loss method with friends or co-workers? You could all put up a little cash and figure out a system where people could win money each week if they achieve their goals. Sounds like a GREAT thing to do right after the 1st of the year. Let us know how it turns out...
