Fiber -- It Still Rocks!
Clearly, fiber is the hippest and trendiest thing in the world of food these days.And it seems like every day there's SOME new reason to love it.The latest news, from a study conducted in the UK, is that eating fiber-rich foods can actually help lower your risk of developing breast cancer. The new study suggests that pre-menopausal women who got at least 30 grams of fiber per day actually reduced their breast cancer risk by HALF.The good news for us is that so many foods are packed with fiber these days (click here for some of HG's faves).Our latest oddball fiber-packed discovery?FIBER-FILLED soda! Renew Nutrisoda contains one full gram of dietary fiber per serving. Weird!
New 100-Calorie Snack Alert!
From the wonderful world of Nabisco, the company that put 100-calorie snacks on the map (back in 2004)...100 Calorie Packs versions of chewy granola bars!Now these bars aren't just chewy.And they're not just granola-licious.They actually come flavored like all of your favorite Nabisco cookies -- Oreo, Nutter Butter and Chips Ahoy!We've sunk our teeth into ALL THREE of these bars, and the early reviews are in. The best of the bunch, BY FAR, are the Chips Ahoy! flavored ones. Next, the Nutter Butter. And sadly, the Oreo ones come in at a distant third (Oreo lovers should go for the 100 Calorie Packs Oreo Thin Crisps instead). Enjoy!
100 Cookie-rific Calories
Don't Be Chicken...Try it!
Spotted on Shelves...
Bumble Bee Prime Fillet Chicken Breast - Chicken in a bag? We were skeptical at first, but after trying these low-fat, skinless, boneless breasts that have just 110-170 calories each, we were sold. They're GREAT!
Kellogg's All-Bran Yogurt Bites - All-Bran flakes and sweet, yogurty nuggets make this new cereal taste good. 10 grams of fiber gives you an excuse to forgive the 190-calorie-per-serving price tag that comes with it.
Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Yogurt Blends - To be honest, we've been so busy obsessing over their Slow Churned American Idol Take the Cake ice cream (VOTE NOW, VOTE OFTEN!), we've completely ignored this new line of fro yo. It comes in flavors like Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Caramel Praline Crunch and Black Cherry Vanilla Swirl, though, so we NEED to try this stuff soon. Yum!
Looking for a way to slim down your smoothie? Smoothie King now offers you a chance to MAKE IT SKINNY!

It's worth a peek! ***Crisco is joining the ranks of trans fats ditchers. As of now, all of their shortening products are trans fat free. Seems like anything that contains trans fats just might end up a collectible that fetches big bucks on eBay (or big BUGS in your pantry if you forget to sell it). HA! ***In need of a super-duper bartender to whip up snazzy HG-friendly cocktails at your Super Bowl party (or other event)?Send an email to our pals at BarCandy. They do parties in NY & Los Angeles.
