Waffle Alert: Fantastic HG Recipe TOMORROW!
Spotted on Shelves...
Kellogg's Eggo Special K 99% Fat Free Waffles - These low-calorie waffles (only 60 each!) aren't new, but they ROCK. An entire 3-waffle serving has just 1 gram of fat and a POINTS® value of 4*. We love 'em so much, we used 'em in our fancy loaded waffle recipe swap (but you'll have to wait 'til tomorrow to see it!).
Nature Valley Granola Bites - The peeps at Nature Valley have jumped on the 100-calorie bus (it's standing room only on that thing!). They've turned their crunchy bars into itty bitty granola bites and stuffed 'em in small 100-calorie bags. These are great as an on-the-go snack, with yogurt, or even mixed into cereal. Yum!
Pacific Foods Premium Artisan Inspired Organic Soups - These are the first organic soups to feature USDA-certified organic beef, chicken and pork. We can't wait to try the following, which each have 200 calories or less for an entire can -- Beef Steak & Fusilli Pasta, Chicken & Penne Pasta, Minestrone with Beef Steak, and Savory Chicken & Wild Rice. There are oodles of other kinds in the line, too -- most have pretty decent nutritionals, but be sure to check individual nutritional labels. We LOVE soup!
Is BK Getting Healthy?
Imagine a fast-food world where fries are made of apples, chicken tenders are free of grease, and a kids meal clocks in at 305 calories. WOWOWOW... sounds like an HG dream come true!!! Not a dream, people. Last week Burger King announced plans to add a slew of way-healthy kid-friendly stuff to their menu. This stuff is still in development, but here's a taste of what could be on the way...
Flame-Broiled Chicken Tenders - 145 calories and 6g fat per chick-tastic 4-piece serving. AWESOME!
BK Fresh Apple Fries - A 35-calorie serving of apples cut to look like fries and served in a french fry box called a Frypod. Super-cute!!!
Calorie-Friendly Kids Meals - Flame-broiled tenders, organic unsweetened applesauce, and low-fat milk -- all totaling just 305 calories and 8.5 grams of fat. BINGO!
The new additions will target the under-12 set, but we can almost guarantee there'll be gazillions of HG subscribers flocking to Burger King to try that stuff out -- especially those 145-calorie chicken tenders. Expect this stuff to roll out this coming spring. Thanks, BK!!!
Cordless Warming Tray - Here's one for the girl who has everything (or the girl who has a super-long walk from the kitchen to her serving locale!). This thing heats up fast and stays hot for an hour. Cool!
Bath Burger Gift Pack - Here's a burger that calorie-counters (even vegetarian ones!) can enjoy. It's a fast-food bath-time extravaganza, complete with a deluxe burger sponge, lemon mustard-seed body scrub, mango mayo body lotion, and strawberry ketchup shower gel. French fry soap sticks sold separately. (OK, the fries don't really exist, but they SO should!).
Can eggs and certain green veggies protect your eyes? New research shows that specific nutrients found in foods like spinach and eggs could reduce the risk of macular degeneration (an irreversible condition that leaves millions of Americans blind) in older adults. Lutein and zeaxanthin (found in spinach, kale, collard greens, romaine lettuce, broccoli, and more) MAY be able to help prevent it.

The good news? He actually suggested expanding the rule to include MORE restaurants, for a better shot at making it legal.

PMS chocolate?!This botanical-infused stuff promises to help combat your symptoms with its inclusion of things like white willow bark (a pain reliever), artichoke leaf (reduces bloating) and chasteberry (which can help control mood swings). All that for 70 calories per mini chocolate bar (which they recommend you chew THREE times a day). Can three tiny chocolate bars a day REALLY do all that?! Hmmmm... sounds fishy to us, but if you need an excuse to down some chocolate, this could be it. That's all we've got. HG out!
