Green Giant Kid-Friendly Veggies - Little ones do NOT eat enough vegetables. And Green Giant is trying to change that. This month, packages for SIX varieties of frozen and canned Green Giant veggies will feature cartoon characters from the TV shows SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, and Go Diego,Go! The frozen veggies come in butter sauce and include collectible stickers (thankfully, those aren't covered in butter!), and all the veggie products are low in fat and have just 20 - 80 calories per serving. KIDS, SHMIDS -- we want these, too!!!!
Yoplait Yo-Plus Yogurt - 110 calories, 1.5g fat and 3g fiber (POINTS® value 2*) in each tasty cup. This stuff is packed with probiotics and prebiotics to help keep your digestive system in check, and it comes in cherry, peach, vanilla and strawberry. Want more info about those fancy biotics and what they do? Click here!
Sometimes we read things other than nutrition labels. Here's what's HG-worthy this week...
The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth - Acclaimed nutritionist Jonny Bowden penned this book. It's packed with info (and glossy pics) of good-for-you foods, and it ROCKS. It actually reminds us of our favorite food bible (we LIVE for this one), The World's Healthiest Foods -- and if you ask us, there should be room in your library for BOTH.
The Dorm Room Diet Planner - Dr. Oz (Oprah's BFF) has a daughter named Daphne, and she's written some super-fantastic books. This latest one is a companion book to her first book, The Dorm Room Diet. It features tips, checklists, and room to track your progress... plus it comes with a workout DVD! Both of these books are must-haves for college students -- so spread the word if you know anyone who's currently away at school.
Books About Food = Fun!
FREE SNACKS, FREE SNACKS! (It's True!)

Woohoo!
FREE SHIPPING AT AMY'S!! - Ooops, we're screaming again. But FREE SHIPPING IS AWESOME! Now when you shop for Amy's stuff online ('cuz it's not always easy to find all of their stuff at supermarkets), you'll get FREE SHIPPING on orders over $30.00. That's fantastic... and this offer will not expire (this is what they tell us).

We LOOOVE almonds, so we hope the following is true. A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition says all kinds of INSANELY good things about almonds -- like how people who eat them regularly weigh less than people who don't, and how the fiber in them may actually block some of the fat and calories they contain. We kid you not. It's worth reading about, so click here. ***Speaking of nuts, a seemingly kooky yet reputable study is claiming that the color of your tablecloth can actually affect how much you eat. It says bright yellow and orange cloths make you eat MORE, while brown, navy and dark green ones cause you to eat less. We say how much you eat likely has more to do with how good the food is than the hue of your table skirt ("table skirt"... hee-hee!) -- but who knows?! ***Wanna win a trip to have dinner with the world's STEAMIEST chef? Or how about a trip to Miami for a private cooking class and a VIP gourmet dinner? Check out the Glad Steamiest Chef Sweepstakes ASAP for all that and more. Cool stuff! ***Tired of confusing nutrition labels? Next month Kellogg's will roll out their new "Nutrition at a Glance" labels on their ready-to-eat cereals. The new packages will feature easy-to-read nutritional highlights (like calories, fat and sugar) right on the front of the box. We haven't seen 'em up close yet, but Tony the Tiger says, "They're GRRREEEEEEATTTTT!" And, on that incredibly corny note, we are happy to report... that's all we've got. HG out!
CHEW ON THIS: Today, September 10th, is TV Dinner Day. Celebrate with a Lean Cuisine Panini or some TV-friendly entrée from Amy's. Yum!
