Save on What You Crave!
Save $$$ at YOUR Local Markets...
Everyone wants to save money on food. That's why EVERYONE needs to check out mygrocerydeals.com. It's a free website that allows you to create a personal profile and search for food bargains in your area. In addition, the site has recipes, nutritional information, printable coupons and more -- all in one place, so it's perfect for the lazy! Mygrocerydeals.com is new, so there are a few sections under construction, but there are plenty of deals to be had, people, so cut these guys some slack. (Pssst -- we've already saved $2.00 on a carton of Dreyer's Slow Churned Light Ice Cream...woohoo!)
Slower Eating = Fewer Calories?!
For years we've been told that eating slowly is the way to go, but now new research shows that we actually DO consume fewer calories when we don't rush through our meals. A study conducted by researchers at the University of Rhode Island found that women who ate quickly took in 67 more calories in 9 minutes than women who ate slowly did in 29 minutes. So slow down! No need to inhale that turkey dinner this week. Take small bites and relax a bit. Have a conversation and (yikes!) dare to put your fork down between bites.
Take Human Bites!
Stuff You Didn't Know You Needed...
Auto-Measure Spice Carousel - This one's WAY more fun than it sounds. Your 8 spice bottles will not only rotate, they'll be dispensed in convenient 1/4-tsp. servings (if you so desire). Yippeee!
Spin'nStor Salad Bags - Wash your salad, toss it into one of these kooky reusable bags, hold the top closed and spin it vigorously. They say all the excess water will collect in the unique "reservoir", and your greens'll be good to go. If this thing actually works, it'll be an INSANELY awesome find, huh?
Seasonal Spatulas - If you spend a lot of time flipping things in frying pans, you'll likely get a kick out of this snowman spatula from our fancy friends at Williams-Sonoma. Chances are, you're lacking in the "cute spatula" department (sad), so give this one a look...
Those fizz-tastic folks over at Jones Soda are at it again. Their new holiday pack of bizzarro beverages is out. Some of this year's freakish flavors are Sweet Potato, Dinner Roll and Antacid. And all are calorie-free (not that any human would actually drink these). ***Have you checked out the scratch 'n sniff ads in the new holiday issue of People magazine? 5 of Kraft's 31 ads smell desserty, while the other 26 smell like paper. Mmmmmm! ***Spud Alert! Keep an eye out for Healthy Mr. POTATO HEAD, who'll be floating down Broadway in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade for the second year in a row. For the 411 on this starchy dude, plus recipes and more, check out potatoheadquarters.com. ***Oh, now you can check out some of our stuff over at fitnessmagazine.com. The site is packed with lots of great info. That's all we've got. HG out!
