Healthy Choice Mediterranean Inspired Café Steamers - Send your taste buds on an exotic little excursion with these new dishes from HC: Balsamic Garlic Chicken, Grilled Basil Chicken, Grilled Vegetables Mediterranean, and Lemon Garlic Chicken and Shrimp. YUM! Each frozen entrée, which cooks up steam-style in the microwave, has 220 - 270 calories, 2.5 - 6g fat, 540 - 600mg sodium, 34 - 42g carbs, 6 - 7g fiber, 4 - 7g sugars, and 6 - 20g protein (POINTS® value 4 - 5*). P.S. The Asian Inspired ones were recently tweaked to taste even better, and there's a new Chicken Pad Thai option in that line!
Luna Protein Bars - It takes a pretty good protein bar to impress us, and Luna has done it (no surprise there -- Luna rocks). These new, all-natural nougat-y bars come in Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cookie Dough, and Chocolate Cherry Almond. They taste really good (especially that choc-PB one!) and come in under 200 cals per bar. Each has 180 - 190 calories, 6 - 9g fat, 105 - 230mg sodium, 19 - 21g carbs, 3g fiber, 13 - 15g sugars, and 12g protein (POINTS® value 3 - 4*). Fuel up, people!
Mt. Olive PicklePAKs - Pickles are DELICIOUS but not always easy to take on the go. (We have trouble fitting those big jars into our purses.) HELLO, PicklePAK! These li'l containers of brined goodies come in varieties like Kosher Dill Petites, Hamburger Dill Chips, and No Sugar Added Sweet Petites. A "pak" of any of those kinds contains 0 calories, 0g fat, 333 - 550mg sodium, 1 - 2g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, and 0g protein (POINTS® value 0*). Find 'em by using the pickle site's G.P.S.: Global Pickle Search.

HUUUUGE HG News!
WW and Boca, Together at Last!
News from the World of Weight Watchers
The folks at WW have clearly been busy lately! On their list of new developments, the Double W is now endorsing a handful of Boca products, as well as Jell-O's sugar-free gelatin and rice pudding snacks. The new packages have POINTS® values and everything. In other product news, those diet rascals at Weight Watchers have created their own copycat spreadable cheese wedges. In Original Swiss, Garlic & Herb, and Parmesan Peppercorn, each wedge has 30 calories, 2g fat, 240 - 250mg sodium, 1g carbs, 1g fiber, 0g sugars, 2g protein, and a POINTS® value of 1. Not bad -- but definitely not as creamy, versatile, and delicious as the ones from our beloved friend The Laughing Cow (yup, she's still laughing!). Lastly, Weight Watchers has added a super-handy product locator to its website, making it easier than ever to track down your favorite Weight Watchers snacks and food items. (Candy Bar Ice Cream Bar, we're coming for you!) Good going, WW!
People who love candy (and have self-control) will be pumped about a new line called Pieces, Candy in a Crunchy Shell. In addition to Reese's (the ORIGINAL Pieces!), these come in Almond Joy, Hershey's Special Dark, and York (Peppermint Flavored Dark Chocolate). With 170 - 200 calories and 8 - 10g fat, the serving size is a generous 46 - 51 pieces. But they come in multi-serving re-sealable bags, so be careful not to overdo it! ***VitaTop fans: Click HERE now to take a special poll. We want your opinions so we can offer you the BEST specials. And speaking of Vitas... Attention, Publix shoppers! Check out the one-week-only "Buy 1 Get 1 Free" promo on Vitalicious VitaTops at Publix, beginning this Thursday, March 4th. (Look for them in the frozen breakfast section.) YOWSA! ***Bummed about the lack of a microwave at your workplace? Fret not!Warmables may be right for you. Before you walk out the door, slide your container of hot food into the insulated pouch along with the heated bag of cherry pits (apparently this cherry-pit concept has been around for ages). Hours later, your lunch will still be warm! ***Wanna get a little kooky with your oatmeal selections? Check out Mad Hectic Oatmeal. Not only does it come in fun flavors like French Chocolate and Raspberry Almond, but it's also packed with protein, fiber, and omega-3s. Whoa! And don't worry... the omegas come from ground flaxseeds, not fish flakes. ***Java update! By September, Burger King locations across the States will be selling freshly brewed Seattle's Best Coffee drinks. (That's a Starbucks subsidiary, FYI!) Great news, but we'd still steer clear of those fatty Croissan'wiches... ***Curious to see how your county stacks up against the rest of the state, health-wise?Click here, find your locality, and check the rank... The results may shock (and frighten) you! That's all we've got. HG out!
