Lean & Dean!
2-for-1 Spotted on Shelves...

Two New Jimmy Dean D-Lights Options - There are two FANTASTIC new light breakfast items on the market from our favorite down-home dude, Jimmy Dean. The D-Lights Turkey Bacon Bowl has scrambled egg whites, reduced-fat cheese, potatoes, and (of course) turkey bacon. The whole thing has just 240 calories, 9g fat, 20g carbs, 2g fiber, and 19g protein (POINTS® value 5*). Or if you prefer a no-utensils-needed breakfast, try the D-Lights Turkey Sausage Whole Grain Bagel, complete with egg whites and cheese. That sandwich has 260 calories, 8g fat, 31g carbs, 4g fiber, and 18g protein (POINTS® value 5*). YUM!!!

Two New Green Giant Veggie Selections - From our Jolly Green pal... Just for One Peas & Corn in a Basil Butter Sauce, endorsed by Weight Watchers. Perfectly portioned veggies, sauced up and ready to go in two minutes. Each tray of buttery goodness has 80 calories, 2g fat, 14g carbs, 3g fiber, and 4g protein (POINTS® value 1). But wait, there's MORE! Try the new GG Immunity Blend -- cauliflower, orange & yellow carrots, and dried cranberries with butter sauce, all in a steamable bag. A 1-cup serving has 70 calories, 2.5g fat, 11g carbs, 2g fiber, and 1g protein (POINTS® value 1*). Veggie time!!!

Two New Chips Ahoy! 100 Calorie Packs - Step aside, Thin Crisps! These new packs are full of chubby li'l cookies! HOORAY! Double Chocolate Chip Cookies (YUM!) and Fudge Drizzled Cookies (ALSO YUM!) have officially arrived. Each little dessert-y snack pack has 100 calories, 4 - 4.5g fat, 15 - 16g carbs, 0 - <1g fiber, and 1g protein (POINTS® value 2*). Portion-controlled cookies make everything better.

Mamma VIA! So Much Coffee News...

Lots of great stuff coming from the world of Starbucks VIA Ready Brew! Caffeine-avoiding fans of instant coffee, listen up. Due to overwhelming customer requests, Starbucks will be releasing a decaf version of its Italian Roast VIA packets on November 17th. Same high quality, no caffeine. WOOHOO! Plus, java fanatics can share their love of the quickie coffee by entering the Starbucks VIA Experience Contest... and have the chance to win groovy prizes. Just submit your most creative VIA experience by posting a photo, video, or a few words in writing. Each week until November 10th, The 'Bucks will crown a winner based on that week's theme. Here are the upcoming challenges...

"Try it at Work" - Submit your occupation-based experiences ASAP. You've only got until tomorrow!

"Try it on the Go" - Where do YOU drink your VIA? In your car? On a plane? While running a 10K? (Probably not that last one.) Ends 10/27/09.

"Try it Far Out" - What distant places have you visited (or could you visit) with your VIA in hand? The Taj Mahal? The Sydney Opera House? The Kalahari Desert? (Again, that one might not be the best choice.) Ends 11/3/09.

"Try it in Recipes" - What could you put VIA into other than hot water? A cake mix? Your chili? Mom's meatloaf? (We really should stop at two suggestions.) Ends 11/10/09.

Even if you don't plan on entering, there are some pretty funny entries posted that are worth checking out. THANK YOU, STARBUCKS VIA!!!

A Little Water Help, People!

Last week, HG subscriber and longtime pal Ashley begged for our help via video... and we just couldn't say no. (We love Ashley. She gave us the Twitter name HungryGirl a while back. Long story for another time.) So here's the scoop. Water.org brings safe drinking water and sanitation to developing countries. (Don't tune this out, it's important!) Instead of pouring money into advertising, the "Women Can't Do Anything" campaign is raising awareness about this great work via Facebook, Twitter, and more. (The campaign got its name because millions of women spend countless hours gathering water from distant locations, preventing them from doing much else.) Click here, read all about it, watch the awareness video, and do what you can to spread the word! You can also donate money directly by clicking here. JUST DO IT.
The Buzz...

Peanut butter fans, hear THIS. Justin, our favorite mop-topped PB-maker and creator of the world's first 100-calorie nut butter packets, is introducing CHOCOLATE nut butters next month. They're all-natural and INSANELY delicious, so keep an eye out for 'em. Click here to see all the products, and click here to see what's available right now! ***In other 100-calorie news, the folks at Michael Season's, who make AMAZING baked snacks, are launching portion-controlled packs of their popular crunchy snacks. These 100-cal packs are a tiny bit hard to get your paws on but totally worth seeking out. (Pssst... You can buy 'em online HERE.) ***Speaking of smaller portions, Coca-Cola is introducing skinnied-up mini cans of Coke, Sprite, etc., that contain 90 calories' worth of the stuff (a regular can has about 140 calories). Interesting idea. But still not worth it in our opinion... ***Wanna know what food items are on sale at Amazon? Check out the Manager's Special. There's lotsa good stuff here, people, like granulated Splenda and Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps! That's all we've got. HG out!
