Attention chocoholics! This summer, Hershey's will add a new "Carb Alternatives" line that will join its Hershey's 1 Gram Sugar Carb Bar as a new option for low-carbers. The line will include low carb versions of favorites like Hershey's Milk Chocolate with Almonds, Reese's Miniatures, Hershey's Kisses, and Kit Kat Miniatures. No official word yet on the calorie or fat content, just that these cute candy bars will be low in carbs. (By the way, we just used the word "carb" five times in four sentences.)
Has anyone else noticed that 7-Eleven's Diet Pepsi Slurpee machines are NEVER working? After calling and visiting over 20 7-Eleven locations, Hungry Girl spies found just 2 stores that were actually dispensing the calorie-free frozen treat. If you need a Slurpee fix, there is another alternative. Crystal Light slurpees don't cause as many (or any!) problems with the machines and they're fantastic. Reminder: Unlike Diet Pepsi Slurpees, Crystal Light ones DO contain calories & carbs (about 50 cal. & 12 carbs per 12 oz.).
ARTICHOKES: THEY'RE UNDERRATED (AND POINTY!)
We just wanted to take a moment to celebrate the artichoke. Artichokes are fat free, low in calories, and entertaining to eat (Each one is a little project!). They are also VERY high in antioxidants, which means they help prevent cancer and Alzheimer's Disease. Face it, they rock! Quick tip: Instead of butter or mayo, dip the leaves in salsa. For other antioxidant-packed foods, check out Hungry Girl's latest "Top Ate" list.
TORTILLAS: THE OTHER WHITE BREAD
You know white is the new black, and that 40 is the new 30, but were you aware that tortillas are the new bread? Tortillas currently outsell bagels, rolls and whole-wheat products, and are hot on the heels of white bread, with sales trailing by just 2 percent. So, why all the fuss over our flat, flour-ific friends? Many of 'em are low in carbs, calories and fat...and, well, white bread is SO last millennium.
CHEW ON THIS: June is National Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Month. Dietitians recommend eating at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies every day!
