A Bigtime Soup Scoop!
Zero-Point Soup Alert!!!!
Here's some super (or should we say SOUP-er) exciting news for you. While we were at the FMI Show (a huge food event in Chicago) YESTERDAY, we learned that Progresso will soon introduce "Progresso Light", an entire line of Weight Watchers endorsed soups. There will be FIVE veggie-licious varieties in all -- and they are as follows (drumroll, please): Italian-Style Vegetable, Vegetable and Noodle, Savory Vegetable Barley, Homestyle Vegetable and Rice, and Southwestern-Style Vegetable. A serving of each will have just 60 calories, contain less than 1g of fat and pack in 4 grams of fiber. That means these soups will technically have ZERO POINTS per serving and only 2 Points for an entire can. This could very well be the most exciting soup news the world has ever seen. The only thing is, you'll have to wait 'til August to try 'em. Good thing it'll be too hot to think about 'em before then...

These are actual long-lasting ice pops that eliminate the need to inhale your entire Popsicle in ten seconds flat on a hot day. No more super-melty treats that leak sugary drippings on your cute T-shirts, people. Plus they're fat-free with just 40 calories per pop (1 Point). YAY! (Oh, they're great for kids, too!)
A Healthy Bagel? - If you're anything like us you typically run screaming from bagels (ok, sometimes we just ignore them instead of yelling) -- but you may have to give holey b-fast bread another chance now that Lender's New York Style 100% Whole Wheat Bagel has been chosen as one of the best breakfast foods of 2007 by Health Magazine. The doughy delight beat out other bagels because it has 11 grams of protein & 10 grams of fiber! It does contain 270 calories (5 Points), but it's a BAGEL so what did you expect? If you are gonna splurge on a bagel, it may as well be one that has lots of protein and fiber, right?
