Here are HG's food finds for August... 
Al Fresco Sweet Apple Fully Cooked Chicken Sausage

(1 Sausage (85g): Calories: 110, Fat: 6g, Carbs: 2g, Fiber: 0g, Protein: 12g, Sodium: 440mg)

Even if you don't really like sausages, there's a good chance you'll love these protein-packed, delicious links. Al Fresco makes their chicken sausages in a gazillion flavors, sizes and shapes, and each one is better than the next. We picked these particular links because they're huge, sweet, and PERFECT to mix with egg whites for a tasty morning scramble. Made with ingredients like skinless chicken, apples and pure Vermont maple syrup, these all natural links can change the way you look at breakfast.  Or lunch... or dinner for that matter.  Find them at Stop & Shop, Super Target, Kroger, Food Lion & more. Or buy the larger ones online. HG Heads Up: Check out Al Fresco's entire line of sausages -- we especially like their cute little breakfast links!

 

Gertrude and Bronner's Magic Alpsnack, Coconut, Mango & Pineapple

(1 Bar (42g): Calories: 210, Fat: 12g, Carbs: 24g, Fiber: 3g, Protein: 5g)

Forget about the fact that these kooky energy bars are organic, gluten-free, vegan and contain over 500 mg of Omega-3s, these fruit 'n nut-packed treats taste unbelievably delicious!  Gertrude, who created these chewy wonders, patterned them after fruit bars her mom made for her while she was growing up in Switzerland.  Though Alpsnack comes in many awesome flavors, the Coconut, Mango & Pineapple is definitely the best!  In fact, you may actually pass out after tasting it (no worries, it's worth it).  Not exactly a low calorie snack (so it's not an everyday food, it's a once in a while food), this bar is perfect for those days when you're on the go, have skipped a meal, or need some extra energy during a 6-hour shopping excursion. Find Alpsnack online, at health food stores and at select Whole Foods locations.  HG Tip: Keep a couple of these fruity bars in your glove compartment or office desk in case you're ever in need of an emergency meal!
