60 Calories of Mousse Magic!
60 Calories of Mousse Magic!
Spotted on Shelves...

Mousse Temptations by Jell-O - This is, HANDS DOWN, the most creative and delicious guilt-free stuff to come out of the Jell-O kitchen in, well, possibly FOREVER. It's available in three flavors -- Chocolate Indulgence, Dark Chocolate Decadence, and Caramel Creme -- and has 60 calories, 2.5 - 3g fat, 9 - 10g carbs, 0 - 1g fiber, and 1 - 2g protein (POINTS® value 1*) per snack cup. You MUST try all the flavors! They're popping up on select shelves now, and we're told they'll be EVERYWHERE by October. Yay, mousse!

Campbell's Light Condensed Soups - We broke the news about these last month, and now they're OUT! People who like their soup low in price AND calories will be super-psyched about this line. There are currently five varieties -- Chicken Gumbo, Chicken Mushroom Barley, Chicken with White & Wild Rice, Italian-Style Wedding, and Vegetable Orzo. Pretty fancy for a just-add-water snack or meal-starter, especially one with 70 - 80 calories, 1 - 2g fat, 12 - 14g carbs, 1 - 3g fiber, and 2 - 4g protein (POINTS® value 1*) per half-cup. PLUS, it costs less than a buck per serving. Nice!

Old El Paso Stand 'n Stuff Taco Shells - The name says it all. These flat-bottomed shells stand on their own (we're so proud!) and have plenty of room for stuffin'. Adios, taco shells that tip over and empty their contents before you can eat them! A 2-shell serving has only 130 calories, 6g fat, 16g carbs, 1g fiber, and 2g protein (POINTS® value 3*). Kinda makes us wanna sing, Flat-bottomed shells, you make the rockin' world go 'round!

Bitty Bites...

Laser-Tattooed Fruit!
We're impressed, intrigued, and a little weirded out by this story. Word on the web has it that, pretty soon, the produce you pick up at your local market might be imprinted with info about its point of origin. Those little fruit stickers you sometimes forget to remove could become a thing of the past. Researchers say the new laser-etching technology is not harmful and won't affect the deliciousness of your fruits and veggies. "Tattoo" testing is currently underway on citrus fruits, avocados, garlic, and tomatoes. Next thing you know, our Fuji apples will be riding around on tiny motorcycles and getting their stems pierced...

Each weekly winner will get two pounds of Dunkin' Donuts Original Blend Coffee every month for a year. Three cheers for the Double D!


Morning Meals = MUST-HAVES!
Eat. Your. Breakfast. We've all been told that eating in the AM can lead to lower calorie-consumption throughout the day, but now researchers from Imperial College London think they know WHY. They say not eating in the morning can trick the brain into thinking it wants those high-calorie foods we try desperately NOT to crave. So if you're trying to drop a few pounds, skipping breakfast is NOT the way to do it and could actually cause you to GAIN weight. Eeek! We're going to make a low-cal scramble right now...

Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia Chew!

The Buzz...

Have you heard of Chia Goodness? It's a breakfast cereal made with chia seeds (yes, the same ones used to grow Chia Pets!). Apparently the stuff is healthy, and it doesn't taste bad either. The cereal has 130 - 140 calories and 6 - 8g fat for two tablespoons, though, which is sorta hefty. (It can be mixed with liquid a la oatmeal or eaten granola-style.) But people insist it's super-filling! Pssst... If you do want to try adding chia to your diet, go for the cereal as opposed to chomping into what's growing out of your sheep-shaped ceramic planter. (Seriously, Chia Pets are not FDA-approved for eating!) ***Snacking in the middle of the night could make you gain weight, and not just because of extra calorie intake. Recent studies found that mice that nibbled during their "sleep time" were more likely to pack on pounds than those that ate exactly the same but during "awake time." Messing with natural body rhythms could be to blame. But is it true for people as well? No word on that yet. ***Calorie-free cupcake alert! Order something flower-ific from the Cupcakes for a Cause collection by 1-800-FLOWERS, and 10% of the net proceeds will go to CancerCare for Kids. You can also decorate and send a virtual cupcake for free -- the flower folks will donate $1 for each of those sent, up to $5,000. Do it! It's happening this month only. That's all we've got. HG out!
