New Kids on the Shelves

Cedarlane All Natural Green Chile, Cheese & Ranchero Sauce Egg White Omelette
PER SERVING (1 omelette): 240 calories, 10g fat, 700mg sodium, 21g carbs, 2g fiber, 5g sugars, 18g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*

Getting up early is no fun, so we understand if you don't want to cook a huge gourmet breakfast first thing in the A.M. But don't skip your morning meal altogether! This heat 'n eat omelette is SO amazingly good, we'll give you an F if you don't try it.


Amy's Hearty Spanish Rice & Red Bean Organic Soup
PER SERVING (1/2 can): 140 calories, 2.5g fat, 690mg sodium, 24g carbs, 5g fiber, 3g sugars, 5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

We're big fans of most Amy's products, so this new soup totally caught our attention. The hearty part is right on. It's thick and super filling -- almost like chili or stew. It has high-fiber brown rice (which we love) that's seasoned Spanish style, plus loads of veggies. Welcome to HG school, soup!


Lightlife Smart Wings, Buffalo
PER SERVING (4 wings): 110 calories, 3g fat, 680mg sodium, 6g carbs, 4g fiber, <1g sugars, 13g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*

Lightlife gets pretty creative with its faux-meat products, and this one rules. This buffalo wing knock-off is best with a little fat-free ranch dressing (we like to make our own by stirring 1/3 tbsp. dry ranch seasoning mix into 1/3 cup fat-free sour cream). FYI, there's also a Honey BBQ version!!!
Overachiever Award!

MorningStar Farms - The MF people are churning out new foods like it's their job... which is good, because it IS their job. But seriously, not only have they debuted two fantastic frozen veggie entrées -- Lasagna with Sausage-Style Crumbles and Sweet & Sour Chik'n -- but they've also rolled out the completely unique, meat-free Grillers Turk'y Burgers. WHOA. Click here for more deets. And easy, veggie people... You're setting the bar pretty high!
Head of the Class

Frozen Ground-Beef-Style Soy Crumbles
PER SERVING (1/2 - 2/3 cup): 60 - 80 calories, 0.5 - 2.5g fat, 230 - 270mg sodium, 5 - 6g carbs, 3g fiber, 0 - <1g sugars, 10 - 13g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*

Made by MorningStar Farms and Boca, these faux-meat crumbles are featured in SO many of our emails and recipes that they hardly need an introduction. We love them; you love them, too. Soy crumbles for class president! 


Boca Original Vegan Veggie/Meatless Burgers
PER SERVING (1 patty): 70 calories, 0.5g fat, 260mg sodium, 6g carbs, 4g fiber, 0g sugars, 13g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2

These red-boxed beauties allow SO many of our recipes to be much more guilt-free than they'd be with other patties. Our go-to soy burgers, these no-meat wonders have head cheerleader written all over 'em. They're so popular, they recently earned the official Weight Watchers endorsement. P.S. We also enjoy the 100-calorie Big Burger version sold at Costco!
Honorable Mention!

Mann's Sunny Shores Rainbow Salad - Frequently overshadowed by its uber-popular sibling, Broccoli Cole Slaw (#1 MVP 2009), this cauliflowered-up shredded veggie mix has got it going ON. You can pretty much use it anywhere you use broccoli slaw. The stats are virtually identical. And you can tell we love the stuff, because we've got our HG logos ALL OVER the packaging!
Cutest Couples

If this were high school, these items would be up for prom king & queen...

  Fact! If you wanted to say, "I am hungry," in Spanish, you wouldn't say, "SOY hambre." You'd say, "TENGO hambre." We know this little language lesson has nothing to do with edible soy, but click "Send to a Friend" anyway!
