CINNABON IS YOUR NEW FRIEND
We admit it. We have felt hatred and resentment towards Cinnabon over the years. That freakish aroma that takes over every mall and makes it nearly impossible to focus on shopping is almost too much to resist. But now, thanks to their new Strawberry Minibon, you can take part in a Cinnabon experience for only 250 calories and 5 grams of fat. Don't get us wrong--it's not exactly a carrot stick, but it's 50 calories and 6g of fat LESS than their regular Minibon. And by the way, if you've ever broken down and had the Classic Cinnabon, you inhaled 730 calories and 24g of fat. But let's not dwell on the past...
BAJA BOB IS MAKIN' MARTINI MAGIC
Baja Bob, King of the Calorie & Carb-Friendly Cocktail Mixers, is at it again. This time he's tackling martinis. He'll soon introduce a line of martini mixers that'll blow you away. The cool new creations will come in Blue Raspberry, Cranberry Cosmo, Lemon Drop & Sour Apple, and will contain about 10 calories a serving (that doesn't include the alcohol, people). Like all of Bob's concoctions, they're made with Splenda. These magical mixers won't hit the shelves until next month. In the meantime, drown your sorrows in a Black Tai.
AVOCADOS = AWESOMENESS
If you think adding avocado to your salad is a bad idea, think again. New research shows that the "good fat" in avocados increases the absorption of disease-fighting nutrients like lycopene, beta-carotene and alpha-carotene, which are found in fruits and vegetables. In addition to helping absorb those cancer-fighting nutrients, avocados contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids, along with Vitamin E, lutein, fiber and magnesium. Trust us, even if you can't pronounce them, those are all good things.
