Smile and Say (Cottage) Cheese!
Spotted on Shelves...
Rachel's Cottage Cheese - Cottage cheese, BORING?! Nuh-uh! Rachel (not that Rach, a different one) has changed all that with yummy savory flavors, like Cucumber Dill and Roasted Red Pepper, as well as sweet fruity ones, including Pear Mangosteen and Lemon Verbena Berry. Each container of the stuff has 110 - 140 calories, 2 - 3g fat, 6 - 13g carbs, 0 - 1g fiber, and 14 - 15g protein (POINTS® value 2 - 3*). Find them at select grocery stores and scoop away!
Eggo Nutri-Grain Strawberry Filled Waffles - It doesn't get much easier than this, people. Our pals at Eggo have created a waffle made with whole grains that has the topping INSIDE. (We're not sure how they did it, but we assume magic wands were involved.) Each strawberry-stuffed treat has 130 calories, 3.5g fat, 25g carbs, 3g fiber, and 3g protein (POINTS® value 2*). Hooray for fruity filling and fiber!
Perky Jerky - This crazy caffeinated jerky sounds scary, but it's actually pretty good. It's all-natural and has a peppery kick (in addition to that CAFFEINE kick). Each serving of this turbo-charged meat contains about the same amount of caffeine as a can of Red Bull. There are TWO servings per bag, so don't eat it all at once, or you'll be bouncing off the walls! Each 1-oz. serving has 90 calories, 2g fat, 6g carbs, 0g fiber, and 11g protein (POINTS® value 2*). Buy some online for now, or wait for it to start showing up in stores nationwide (should be soon!).
HG + RR = YAY!!!!!!!!!! Are you ready for some hugely exciting (and we mean HUGELY exciting) news? Lisa Lillien (a.k.a. HG) will be popping onto the Rachael Ray talk show intermittently this season to share tips, tricks, recipes, and more with Rach and her viewers. Lisa's first visit will happen TOMORROW (Tuesday, September 15th), so tune in or set your DVR. Don't miss it! Are you as excited about this as we are?!? Click here to tweet at the double R show and let 'em know. Yee-haaaaa!
Battle of the Beers! Now that so many people are counting calories, beer-makers are in a full-on brawl to see who comes out with the lowest-calorie brew. MGD 64 is everywhere, with TV commercials showing people just how tiny an amount of other bar drinks they'd get for the same 64 calories... and it's a huge success. But NOW the Anheuser-Busch folks have released their rebuttal -- a beer with a mere 55 calories. Whoa! Even we're impressed. Select 55 is currently being tested in fifteen metro areas -- Tampa, San Diego, Dallas, and Green Bay are among them. The company plans to expand to even more test markets this fall and is hopeful a national release is on the way. Game on! And um, could 44-calorie beer be far behind?
