Pillsbury Grands! Homestyle Golden Wheat Reduced Fat Biscuits - This new reduced-fat refrigerated dough has more fiber than most. Plus, the biscuits bake up huge. (Hello? They're called "Grands!") Each one has 170 calories, 5g fat, 580mg sodium, 29g carbs, 2g fiber, 5g sugars, and 3g protein (POINTS® value 3*). Mmmmm, dough...
Power of Fruit Bars - "No added sugar, color or preservatives. None. Zero. Zilch." That's a quote straight from the ingredient list of these all-natural frozen treats. In Original (All-Fruit), Tropical, and Banana Berry, each "bar" (more like a tube -- think Otter Pops) has 27 - 30 calories, 0.11 - 0.12g fat, 0.66 - 1.75mg sodium, 6.5 - 7.7g carbs, 0.7 - 1g fiber, 3.8 - 6g sugars, and 0.3 - 0.36g protein (POINTS® value 0*). They're sold in select supermarkets and health food stores nationwide, and THEY'RE AWESOME.
Caring Candies Sugar Free Candy Canes - If you're a sugar-avoider who loves candy canes, here's an alternative that is sugar-free, is naturally sweetened (with sugar alcohol made from beets), and uses natural sources for coloring. Each CUTE 'n fruity candy cane is fat-free with only 60 calories, 0mg sodium, 15g carbs, 0g fiber, and 0g protein (POINTS® value 1*). Order online or find them at select stores in the Northeast. Christmas is saved!
Vitaminwater10... Minus 10 We were (and still are) pretty flabbergasted by the announcement that next year, Glaceau will take those ten little calories out of the drink we already love and reformulate it into Vitaminwater Zero. This better be good, because we're big V10 fans. All current V10 flavors except one will get the makeover -- Energy Tropical Citrus will be nixed. (At least it won't be the Multi-V Lemonade... Whew!) We'll keep an open mind 'til we taste the new stuff, but our standards are pretty high. Impress us, Glaceau!
Time for a new HG video! Check out this awesome commercial we made in celebration of our new recipe card set (the PERFECT holiday gift). Yay! ***Does carb-cutting leave you crabby? There may be a scientific reason for it. Researchers in Australia found that people on low-fat diets were less depressed and/or angry after a year than those on low-carb, Atkins-style diets. Whoa! ***New info says that eating too fast can actually block the hormones that let you know you're full. So SLOW DOWN, Chompy! ***Best idea ever or silliest one yet? You decide: The TrekDesk fits OVER your treadmill, allowing you to work and walk at the same time. Multi-taskers might embrace this, but we can see slackers and/or true exercise junkies cringing at the thought. Either way, it's mighty pricey, especially considering the treadmill is NOT included. ***A recent study found that people who cycled in sync with music were more efficient, needing 7% less oxygen than those who just biked while background music played. So, pump up the jam! (But do it quickly, because we need to get that last sentence back to 1993.) ***Are you confused by the ongoing debate about which types of fish are safe to eat, are over-farmed, have health benefits, or are going extinct?Consult this list of the best seafood for you AND the environment. DO IT. Oops, we're out of room. And, um, that's all we've got. HG out!
***Today's email is dedicated to Cookie, a much-loved friend and family member of Hungry Girl's. Cookie was the cutest, sweetest, most special bunny in the world and lived ten wonderful years. Her appetite was as HUGE as mine, and her favorite foods were canned pumpkin and blueberries. If you like pumpkin, enjoy some today and think of Cookie. She will be missed. -- Lisa
