Evol. Mini Burritos - It's fitting that this brand's name is "love" spelled backward, since we totally LOOOOVE its food items! These petite burritos (we call them pettitos) are all natural, all delicious, and made with ingredients from sustainable and humane sources. How awesome is that? In varieties like Shredded Beef, Chicken & Black Bean, and Veggie Fajita, each one has 160 - 190 calories, 2 - 4g fat, 280 - 360mg sodium, 27 - 32g carbs, 2 - 4g fiber, 0 - 1g sugars, and 5 - 8g protein (POINTS® value 3 - 4*). MUY YUM!
Extra Dessert Delights Sugarfree Gum - Desserts beware; there's an impostor on the loose! This chewy suspect has no sugar and is considered extremely delicious. In three flavors -- Strawberry Shortcake, Key Lime Pie, and Mint Chocolate Chip -- and with only 5 calories and 2g carbs a stick, chewers may be tempted to indulge in its guilt-free sweetness. And they should. This gum is great!
Seapoint Farms Edamame Snack Packs - Steamable AND portion controlled? These li'l bags of soybeans ROCK! In microwave-ready pouches, each 2.5-oz. serving has 90 calories, 2.5g fat, 30mg sodium, 8g carbs, 3g fiber, 1g sugars, and 8g protein (POINTS® value 1*). There's the shelled kind, with two servings per pack, as well as single-serving packs of in-pod edamame. SO great. Look for 'em in freezer aisles at natural-foods stores and supermarkets nationwide.

A Nut Above the Rest!
Attention chewers! Did you know that walnuts could help relieve stress? (Unless, of course, you eat too many, gain weight, and have a panic attack.) Researchers at Penn State took a look at how consumption of walnuts and walnut oil influenced the blood pressure of test subjects; turns out it significantly reduced both resting AND stress-respondent blood pressure. Yay, walnuts! ***What would be the next best thing to an HG app? A SparkRecipes app! And it's out there -- click here for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch version; click here to get it for your BlackBerry; and click here if you want it for your Android phone. FYI, a BUNCH of users have uploaded HG recipes... Super! ***If you like the convenience of instant oatmeal but the wispy oats leave you craving a little more substance, check THIS out: Three popular flavors of Quaker Instant Oatmeal -- Apples & Cinnamon, Maple & Brown Sugar, and Cinnamon & Spice -- now have bigger oats and 25 percent less sugar;plus, Quaker's new Hearty Medleys Instant Multigrain Hot Cereal ROCKS, with four different types of grains in each packet. Is it just us, or is breakfast looking REALLY hot? ***And for the people who wish pomegranate seeds weren't so darn hard, good news! The new Angel Red pomegranates have softer seeds and lots of juicy flavor in their arils. We can't wait to get our hands (and teeth) on these poms... That's all we've got. HG out!
