All-New from All-Bran...
Spotted on Shelves...
All-Bran Rolled Fiber Wafers - In both Strawberry and Chocolate, these things look like those crazy cereal straw thingees Kellogg makes. In fact, we're pretty sure these ARE cereal straws, just with added fiber and a "healthy" new spin. Each 3-wafer serving has 130 calories, 4g fat, 28g carbs, 10g fiber, and 2g protein (POINTS® value 2*). Find them in the "Fiber Supplement Aisle"... wherever that is.
Morningstar Farms Hickory BBQ Riblets - You know we are OBSESSED with Gardenburger BBQ Riblets. Well, there's a new "riblet" in town and we thought you should know about it, in case you're looking to expand your riblet horizons (and really, shouldn't we ALL be open to this?). The saucy new Riblets have 220 calories, 3.5g fat, 35g carbs, 5g fiber, and 18g protein (POINTS® value 4*) each. Is there room in this world for BOTH of these meatless pork swaps? Only time will tell. (BTW, they are owned by the same parent company and have identical stats. Veeeery interesting.)
Kraft On the Go Pouches of Salad Dressing - We've mentioned them before, but they're worth blabbing about again. These single-serving pouches of dressing are perfect for stashing in your purse, at your office, in your carry-on luggage... basically anywhere a salad emergency might arise. We've seen three reduced-fat flavors -- Light Balsamic Vinaigrette, Light Zesty Italian, and Light Ranch -- each with 25 - 60 calories, 1 - 4g fat, 2 - 6g carbs, 0g fiber, and 0g protein (POINTS® value 1 - 2*). But rumor has it, there are two NEW flavors out there -- Roasted Red Pepper Italian with Parmesan and Vidalia Onion Vinaigrette with Roasted Red Pepper. Fancy! Anyone seen or tried those? Let us know!

Things You Should Eat!
Decadent... But Not Off Limits!
FOODIE ALERT: Bacon and Donuts!?!? Yup!
The Great Bacon Debate - Ever since Oprah mentioned that regular bacon is better than turkey bacon (due to sodium levels), people have been going NUTSO. Truth is, you need to examine your bacon and read labels -- and each product should be judged based on its individual nutritional info. Turkey bacon can have way fewer calories and much less fat than regular bacon. Some turkey bacon has lower sodium content than others, and some regular bacon has reduced calories and fat. It just depends on the bacon. Thoroughly confused? Distract yourself and check out baconfreak.com, a site TRULY devoted to the "meat candy" -- you can find bacon lunchboxes, gummy bacon, bacon toothpicks, and an INSANE (in a good way) selection of flavored bacon with decent stats (we know because we've tried them). Woohoo!
Fat-Slashed Donuts: Better Than EVER - If donuts are a weakness of yours, check out Holey Donuts!. The company sells oodles of low-fat and reduced-fat donuts in ridiculously delicious flavors. The latest offering? Low Fat Cinnamon Glazed Donut Holes, with fewer calories and a fraction of the fat compared to regular ones. If you order these donuts, you NEED to come up with a plan to help you avoid eating too many at once. We freeze them in foil so they don't glare at us and beg us to eat them. One at a time, people! FYI, use discount code HG30 and you'll get 30 FREE donut holes with any order placed before 3/3/09. (They're pricey, we know. But TOTALLY unique and delicious!)
