Weigh To Go!

As you probably know, we're huge fans of weighing our food. Whether you're cooking something from scratch, or taking it out of a package, it's always a good idea to weigh your items so you can accurately assess how many calories, fat grams, etc. you're taking in.  Often pre-packaged foods (even from large companies) aren't labeled correctly, or your assumptions about how much 4 oz. of chicken is are way off.  That's why we couldn't live without an awesome food scale. This one's GREAT, weighs in ounces and grams, is very precise, and can weigh up to 5 lbs. of food. (FYI -- you shouldn't be eating any more than that at a time!)
Seal the Deal

We're thrilled that companies have caught on to the whole portion control thing. And although dozens of our favorite snacks come in single-serve bags, there are those that simply DON'T. Rather than run the risk of devouring an entire bag of, say, Guiltless Gourmet Au Gratin Potato Crisps, we like to break the bag down into individual servings. That's where this thing comes in.  Just place perfect-sized portions into little bags and seal 'em up!  Truly, this Food Saver is more like a lifesaver. And it's so fun to use, if you're not careful you'll find yourself sealing up little bags of EVERYTHING around the house -- loose change, jewelry, small pets, etc. (ok, we were kidding about the small pets!)

Shuffle THIS!

Music makes everything better.  Even exercising!  And this iPod Shuffle is just about the cutest, most practical thing ever.  Amazon is offering great prices on these babies and they're shipping overnight, which is AWESOME.  This thing weighs as little as a car key and is about the size of a pack of gum (and IT doesn't promote tooth decay!).  It also holds up to 120 of your favorite upbeat songs to exercise to.  If you currently exercise without music, you really need to check this out...
Fun With Body Fat!

This handy-dandy scale not only tells you your weight, but also tracks body fat so you can see if you're not just losing pounds, but body fat as well. It's an official Weight Watchers product so you know it'll be high-quality. You can even track and monitor weight and body fat for up to ten people, so your whole family (and maybe even a few friends and/or neighbors) can join in on all the fun. Well, maybe weigh-ins aren't exactly fun, but you get the idea...

Bite the Magic Bullet

We had never heard of The Magic Bullet until people started emailing us raving about how awesome it is.  This all-in-one smoothie machine can instantly make salsas, smoothies, coffee drinks and more.  And it's cute and compact.  You can have hours of crazy fun creating cool, easy, guilt-free treats with it.  One subscriber claims her "magic bullet" coffee drinks are WAY better than the ones she gets at Starbucks.  Maybe, if we're nice to her, she'll share her recipe...

CHEW ON THIS:
