Ooooooh... Fun 100-Calorie Cereals!
Spotted on Shelves...
Malt-O-Meal 100 Calorie Cereal Snack'ers - We've heard from LOTS of happy campers who dig these 100-calorie pouches of cereal, which come in three varieties -- Cinnamon Toasters, Blueberry Muffin Tops and Coco-Roos. Pour some Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze on top, or pop 'em straight. Mmmmmmm!
Silk Plus For Bone Health - Worrying about keeping your bones strong? Check out the latest soymilk from Silk -- it has 30% more calcium than regular milk, and it also contains NutraFlora (natural prebiotic fiber that helps you absorb that calcium). Each cup has 100 calories, 3.5g fat, 2g fiber, and 40% the RDA of calcium.
Birds Eye Steamfresh Singles - You love the ginormous bags, now love the mini single-serving versions. These portion-controlled packs of the steam-tastic veggies come in Super Sweet Corn, Baby Brussels Sprouts, and Sweet Peas. Yay!
Do Healthy Restaurants Make You Eat More?!
A brand-new study published in the Journal of Consumer Research found that people may actually consume MORE calories at so-called "healthy" restaurants (or when choosing "healthy" entrees) than they do at other places. How can this be? It seems many of these places prompt customers to indulge with side dishes, drinks and/or desserts. In addition, that same study found that people underestimate how many calories they are eating at these "healthy" dining spots by around 35%! That's HUGE! Brian Wansink, one of the head honchos behind the study and author of Mindless Eating, has discovered other interesting things about our eating habits. He says people tend to eat more when in the following situations: a. they're served food family style (with large bowls in the center of the table), b. they're eating straight from the bag or carton, c. they're eating their meals on large plates, and d. they're dining in front of the TV, in a car, or with friends. Interesting stuff, though none of it is very surprising to us...
Healthy Restaurants = MORE Calories?

Insulated Ice Cream Bowl - We don't know about you, but we are NOT slow ice cream eaters. We gobble the stuff. But, if there are any of you out there who like to take your sweet time when enjoying frozen dessert, you may want to hook yourself up with this insulated ice cream bowl. It keeps your ice cream cold and your hands warm. Woohoo!
Sushi Adhesive Bandages - We love sushi so much it hurts. It doesn't hurt us so much that we need to be bandaged or anything, but if it ever DID, we'd reach for these Sushi Adhesive Bandages. That way we'd show the world just how much we LOVE fish on rice (brown rice, when possible). Want your boo boo to feel better faster? Slap a bandage that features some yellowtail, shrimp and tuna sushi on it. Weeeee!
