Low Sodium Soup is All the Rage!

(Low Sodium) Soup's On!

Fall is here, and you know what that means...it's SOUPTIME!  And as much as we all love the stuff, everyone knows canned soups are super-high in sodium. If that disturbs you, we're here to remind you of some lower sodium options this season...

Amy's Kitchen - Our friends at Amy's have said "See ya!" to 50% of the sodium in some of their soups. Don't miss their Light in Sodium Minestrone.  We LOVE it!

Campbell's - Our soupster pals at Campbell's have peppered soup shelves with a whole SLEW of reduced sodium options.  Included in the line are some of their classic red and white can faves, Chunky Healthy Request choices, and regular Healthy Request varieties. All of their sodium-slimmed soups contain a minimum of 25% less of the stuff. Go, Campbell's!

Progresso - Looking for Progresso faves with HALF the sodium of their regular soups?  You're in luck.  Their new 4-flavor line (Chicken Noodle, Chicken Gumbo, Garden Vegetable and Minestrone) is certified by the American Heart Association.

Nestle...A Health Brand?!

Chances are, you associate the name "Nestle" with a certain chocolate crunch bar or a steamy cup of cocoa. Not products you'd typically think of as healthy.  But it seems the Swiss company is trying to shed its current image and reposition itself as "health-oriented."  In addition to gobbling up the diet brand Jenny Craig, Nestle is now focusing on developing foods that are lower in sodium and/or fat, adding fiber and vitamins to their products, and packaging their stuff in a more "health-focused" way.  We always knew Nestle had it in 'em.  After all, they own Libby's (the makers of our favorite canned pumpkin -- a staple in so many HG recipes), Dreyer's (the makers of the ever-popular Slow Churned Light Ice Cream), and of course, Lean Cuisine.

Geek-a-Cycle - Mouse Potato Alert!  If you find yourself too busy staring at a computer monitor to get your cardio in, this is your lucky day!  Now you can pedal calories away while doing work (or reading HG) with the Geek-a-Cycle.  We're getting one of these for sure...

Lap Mugs - Mugs designed to nest easily and securely in your lap?  While they look cool and interesting, they're not exactly functional, 'cuz they sort of lean forward so you can't really fill them up. Bizarre!

Finger Forks - We're not exactly sure how or why you'd want to use one of these things.  And they come from the UK, so they're not the easiest to get your hands on (no pun intended).  But these kooky forks that you slip onto your fingers are worth viewing. 

 

The Buzz...

A recent Australian study revealed that people who shop for groceries online tend to make healthier choices than those who do their food shopping at the store. Experts say it's because people shopping online take the time to read about the healthier options that are available to them.  ***A new proposal hopes to make The Big Apple trans fat free.  The restaurant industry is up in arms over this and fears if trans fats are outlawed it'll create havoc in NYC.  Read about it here.  ***Need more to read? Check out this article about Hungry Girl...it's running in LA's popular Studio City Sun newspaper.  That's all we've got.  HG out!
