Sara Lee 80 Calories & Delightful Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns, Wheat - Hooray for Sara Lee! She has replaced our beloved, gone-but-not-forgotten Wonder Light buns with her brand-new, 80-calorie bread items. Each one has 1g fat, 160mg sodium, 14 - 15g carbs, 6g fiber, 2g sugars, and 4g protein (POINTS® value 1*). It's about time SOMEONE filled the void. (It's not rocket science, people!)
Muir Glen Organic Seasoned, No Salt Added, and Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes - Canned tomatoes are great to have on hand -- you can do SO much with them. And these are some of the best, freshest-tasting ones around. The seasoned types are Garlic and Onion, Basil and Garlic, and Italian Herbs. The Fire Roasted variety comes solo or with green chilies (hello, fancy!). And the No Salt Added stuff will cut sodium in recipes that call for the standard canned kind. A 1/2-cup serving has 30 calories, no fat, 15 - 420mg sodium, 6g carbs, 1g fiber, 3 - 4g sugars, and 1g protein (POINTS® value 0*). Buy some and use them in EVERYTHING!
Healthy Choice Soup in Microwaveable Bowls, New Flavors - Nukeable soup bowls are ideal for break-room lunches, especially if you're not into dragging around a spare bowl and doing dishes on your hour off. HC has a few new options: Hearty Vegetable Barley, Tomato Basil, and Traditional Lentil. A cup of the stuff has 130 - 150 calories, 0.5 - 2g fat, 430 - 470mg sodium, 27 - 30g carbs, 3 - 5g fiber, 4 - 12g sugars, and 4 - 7g protein (POINTS® value 2*). BUT there's a little more than 1 1/2 cups in each bowl, so you're looking at about 205 - 235 calories and 0.75 - 3g fat (POINTS® value 3 - 4*) for the whole thing. Still worth it, but good to know!

GOOD FOOD NEWS! Our pals at Subway are giving us all NEW low-cal BREAKFAST options: Egg White Muffin Melts! These new b-fast sandwiches are launching all over the U.S. on (or before) April 5th. Here's the scoop: Keep it classic with the Western, or dress up your egg whites and cheese with Black Forest Ham, Double Bacon, or Steak. Plus, like all Subway's stuff, you can customize it with your favorite veggies and sauces. (Jalapeños and honey mustard, anyone?) It comes sandwiched into a (!!!) light whole-wheat English muffin. It's basically the stuff our HG dreams are made of. Each Egg White Muffin Melt has 160 - 190 calories, 4 - 7g fat, 570 - 620mg sodium, 18 - 19g carbs, 5g fiber, 0 - 1g sugars, and 15 - 16g protein (POINTS® value 3 - 4*). And if egg whites alone don't do it for you, get the with-yolk version for an extra 20 - 30 calories and 2.5 - 3g fat. (Must be a small yolk.) Not bad!
OMG!!! Cutest treat EVER alert! Edible Arrangements has a special item for Easter: chocolate-dipped, bunny-shaped pineapple. WOW. And it's a MUCH better choice than one of those giant, solid chocolate bunnies! The fruit-delivery folks have also added peanut-butter-dipped fruit and Hello Kitty shaped pineapple to their delicious bouquet options. We HEART Edible Arrangements! ***On to more innovations in the world of fruit! A farmer in Australia accidentally created a "pleach." The fruit appears to be a peach from the outside, but the inside looks a lot like that of a red plum. Watch your back, Grapple! ***Heads up! Research out of Newcastle University in the UK suggests that the fiber in some seaweed could decrease how much fat your body absorbs... by up to 75 percent! WHOA. If you're feeling adventurous, try chewing on kelp noodles. If not, just wait for food companies to start infusing baked goods with the fat-fighting fiber. ***Do you like fruit and veggies but find that your on-the-go lifestyle makes toting them difficult? Good news! Most flavors of V8 V-Fusion now come in 12-oz. bottles, packing the goodness of fruits and veggies (a full serving of each) into an easy-to-grab container. That's great, but we want the V-people to put their V-Fusion Light in the 12-oz. bottles, too! If you're with us, write in and request personal-sized V-Fusion Light bottles. DO IT, LAZYBONES! ***Wanna use your iPhone for exercise? Okay, before you start doing single bicep curls, check out this new app. iSWEAT2theBEAT helps you to find the perfect music to match the pace of your workout, whether you're walking, running, biking, or elliptical-ing. So get moving, people! That's all we've got. HG out!
