The Supermarket Diet Cookbook - For those of you who like to plan ahead (WAY ahead!), pre-order a copy of this book, which features recipes for tasty, diet-friendly meals you can make at home. It won't be out for several months, but you can nab The Supermarket Diet (the sister book) right now. BTW, both of these books are brought to us from our pals over at Good Housekeeping.
The Dorm Room Diet - The Dorm Room Diet: The 8-Step Program for Creating a Healthy Lifestyle Plan That Really Works is a new book that helps students to make smarter, healthier choices in the cafeteria and avoid common pitfalls of college life. Kiss that Freshman 15 goodbye...
Straight Up and Dirty: A Memoir - While not the type of book we'd typically write about, we're plugging this one 'cuz the author, Stephanie Klein, is an HG pal/subscriber who has a freakishly popular blog. The book is about moving on after a failed marriage, and it's smart, funny, and candid. It's also pretty racy, so consider yourself warned. BTW, Steph, who has also struggled with weight issues her entire life, is busy writing her next book (tentatively titled Moose) about her summer at a weight loss camp.
Coming (Not So) Soon...
Cool New Stuff...
Green Giant Just for One! - Wow! Individual trays of broccoli and yummy cheese sauce for just 60 calories and 3 grams of fat. HG Hint: Try smothering your Shirataki noodles in the stuff...
Gerber Veggie Puffs, Corn - We yapped about the Banana Fruit Puffs a few weeks ago, but this week we discovered that these puffs also exist in Corn. You can eat 80 of these crunchy 'n sweet little corn critters for just 25 calories and no fat.
Ben & Jerry's Room Sprays - Satisfy your urge to bury your head in a frozen confection from Ben & Jerry's by sniffing some B & J's sprays instead. Dream of a room that smells like waffle cones, chocolate chip cookie dough or chocolate fudge brownies? You're SO in luck!
Gnu Bar, Chocolate Brownie - Our fave, chewy, fiber-packed bars now come in a fudgy chocolate flavor that's out of this world and only has 140 calories! Mmmm...
Is Stevia the sweetener to the stars? Despite its NOT being approved for use as a sweetener by the FDA, the herbal product Stevia's popularity is on the rise. Some say this is due to a carefully crafted PR campaign that put the stuff into the hands of entertainment moguls and Hollywood celebs. Interested in trying it out for yourself? Find it at Whole Foods and health food stores. ***Wanna stop buying all that extra junk near the cash registers at supermarkets? Use the self-checkout lines. New research shows that shoppers who utilize self-checkout purchase WAY fewer impulse items. Woohoo! ***OK, this has nothing to do with anything, but we're mesmerized by this meatcake that has been making its way around the web. LOOK AT IT! It's beautiful! It's not something we recommend eating (though if you made a version with lean turkey meat and egg whites...). ***Oh, just a few more short weeks left to avoid the limited time only "Funnel Cake Carnival" at IHOP. Who thinks it's a good idea to add two funnel cakes to a b-fast combo? FYI, an average funnel cake contains 450 - 800 calories and 25 - 47 grams of fat. Don't get sucked in to this one, people! That's all we've got. HG out!
Is Stevia Hot or Not?
CHEW ON THIS: Today, August 21st, is National Spumoni Day. Spumoni is an Italian dessert made of ice cream, candied fruit and nuts. Celebrate with a scoop of Dreyer's/Edy's NSA Neapolitan Ice Cream with a splash of Torani SF syrup in Hazelnut or Almond.
