More Healthy Donuts on the Way!
Holey Moley... Lots of Donut News!!!
We've been drooling (from a distance!) over Rachael Ray's decadent, high-calorie dishes for quite a while now, but we are thrilled to report that she's going Hungry Girl on us (perhaps we've turned her into a lover of guilt-free foods). The Rach has signed a deal with Dunkin' Donuts to help create better-for-you options at the donut chain. We're looking forward to seeing what the Double R and the Double D conjure up. If you're impatient and can't wait months or years to try a "healthier" donut, check out Holey Donuts, a NY-based operation that specializes in super-low-fat donuts in all sorts of insanely delicious flavors and varieties. Our fave is their kooky Donut on a Stick. A word of warning -- while low in fat, these donuts still aren't exactly low-cal, so be careful not to get too crazy with 'em. They're hard to resist (and don't say you weren't warned). And worry not; when Rachel's DD items hit the market, we'll be here with the 411.
Yes, we read things other than nutrition labels sometimes. Check out these new books...
Guide to Healthy Fast-Food Eating - When it comes to fast food, we need all the help we can get. And this handy dandy pocket-sized book from the American Diabetes Association may help you make smarter decisions in a pinch. It contains menus and nutritional info for 13 national fast food chains, including BK, KFC, McDonald's, Papa John's, Domino's, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, Subway, Wendy's and Taco Bell.
HG spied these new ice cream treats...just in time for the warm(er) weather!
Dreyer's/Edy's Loaded Frozen Dairy Dessert - Fully stacked and packed with tons of mix-ins (like cookie dough, Oreo-ish cookies, brownies, etc.), this frozen dessert line has officially freaked us out. Why? Because there's no mention ANYWHERE of it being "light" or "low" or "reduced" -- yet, for the most part, it's got calorie counts and fat stats similar to their Slow Churned Light Ice Creams. Interesting note -- this stuff is called "frozen dairy dessert" (not ice cream), and the first ingredient listed is skim milk. Click here for more info, full nutritionals and a list of flavors. (Pssst we've tried several flavors and they're head-explodingly delicious.)
Klondike Slim-a-Bear 100 Calorie Sandwiches - These slightly smaller versions of those all-too-familiar round chocolate-cookie ice cream sandwiches are PERFECT. They have just 100 calories and 1.5g of fat each, and they manage to pack in 2 - 3g of fiber apiece, too. Find these 2-Point treats in both Vanilla and Chocolate versions. That skinny polar bear sure knows his stuff!
The Skinny Cow Mini Fudge Pops - If you're in the market for a lower cal fudge pop, check out these skinny minis! Each one has just 50 calories and a single gram of fat. Not bad! (And what is it with these hefty mammals and their weight loss?!)
Breyers Double Churned 100 Calorie Cups - In two flavors (Vanilla Fudge Swirl and Cookies & Cream), these perfectly portioned cups are satisfying and delicious. These are FANTASTIC for anyone who can't be trusted around quarts (or even pints) of ice cream.
Ok, we were wrong. We thought maybe Subway would hold onto their high-fiber flour tortillas (120 calories, 8g fiber!) as a bread swap, even though they ditched their low-carb wraps. They didn't. Now their only tortilla option is their 190-calorie, 1-gram-of-fiber one. That makes us sad. We can all sit and whine about it, or we can take action. We vote for ACTION! Click here to email Subway and beg them to bring back the lower cal high-fiber tortilla. Oh, please remember to be nice and tell them how much you love Subway, too! ***Artichokes are an antioxidant-packed superfood. We LOVE 'em -- so much so that we find ourselves sporting Artichoke Apparel every now and then (yeah, we're geeks, but T-shirts with artichokes on them are sorta funny!). ***Weight Watchers recently announced the launch of Weight Watchers Online for Men and eTools for Men. The men's version of WW Online will have more male-centric info and imagery, plus tips from guys who have successfully lost weight on WW. Pass this info on to anyone and everyone you know who may be interested -- it's important! ***We're getting serious with you for a minute -- March of Dimes WalkAmerica kicks off at the end of this month. This event is raising funds to find causes of and ways to help deal with premature birth (the #1 cause of newborn death). So click here to see how you can help by finding a local team and walking (you'll burn extra calories, too -- an added bonus!). That's all we've got. HG out!
Let's Bring Back the Low-Cal Tortilla!
CHEW ON THIS: Today, April 9th, is National Chinese Almond Cookie Day. Each one has about 90 calories and 5g fat. You're way better off eating a fortune cookie, which has a fraction of the calories and is fat-free.
