Chewy, Protein-y, Snacktime Fun!
Spotted on Shelves...
Slim-Fast Protein Snack Chews - We love small pouches that contain several smaller edible things. These little protein-packed snack treats from Slim-Fast are tasty, chewy, sweet, and individually wrapped. And a whole pouch of 'em (FIVE) contains just 100 calories and 3.5g fat, but no fiber (POINTS® value 2*). They come in two flavors -- Caramel (good) and Peanut Butter (better). Click here to find the Chews near you!
Amy's Quarter Pound Veggie Burger - If, like us, you dream of over-sized frozen veggie burger patties (yeah, we need to get out more), you will go gaga over this ginormous burger from our BFFs over at Amy's Kitchen. It's HUGE and has a totally reasonable 220 calories, 5g fat, and 6g fiber (POINTS® value 4*). It's got walnuts, veggies, grains, and even some BBQ sauce inside!!!
Philosophy's Candy Cane Bath and Body Collection - Okay, we know these items aren't edible, but since we recently broke the news to you about peppermint causing you to eat fewer calories (even just sniffing it!), we thought this new line of minty stuff from Philosophy would interest you. There's a 3-in-1 multipurpose product (shampoo, body wash, and bubble bath!), a scrub, a flavored lip shine, and MORE! All calorie-free with a POINTS® value of 0*!
Top Four Airlines for Healthy Snacking (and info on some of their offerings):
1. United (offers yogurt and mixed fruit for breakfast) 2. Continental (features turkey sandwiches with light mayo on the side as a snack option) 3. Midwest (serves roasted chicken salad in a pita for lunch and dinner) 4. Delta (has Kashi cereal and fruit as part of their fancy EATS menu)
Northwest and Southwest airlines came in at the bottom of the pack. Please keep in mind, in-flight food options vary based on so many things -- flight time, domestic vs. international, class, etc. So make your choices carefully. In general, airlines are serving WAY too many carby treats with little nutritional value, so your best bet is to pack your own on-the-go snacks and whip 'em out of your carry-on when you're hungry (that's what we do!).

Calling All Moms!
Choosy Moms Choose MomLogic
If you're a mom (or know one), check out the brand-new momlogic.com. It bills itself as a site "for thinking moms who don't have time to think." MomLogic is jam-packed with breaking news about health, food and family, plus it features celebrity mom interviews and other mom-related stuff to help women stay connected to each other and to the world. Every now and then, they even link to HG (so you know they're cool!). Recent stories include one on some of the WORST foods in the world according to Men's Health, and a feature on the Jessica Seinfeld/Sneaky Chef controversy (Sneaky Chefwas out first, but Jessica didn't steal the idea -- both books ROCK, and that's our two cents, not MomLogic's!). The site is in beta mode (still in testing stages), but check it out, click around, and tell all the moms you know about it STAT!
A recent study found that kids will actually eat healthy foods at school. It seems school lunch sales were NOT affected when cafeterias offered healthier foods. Even better is the fact that these meals don't necessarily cost more to produce. Perhaps we'll start to see kids everywhere dining on healthier foods soon?! ***After 10 years on the air, Food Network has canceled Emeril Live. Emeril will continue on with his other show, The Essence of Emeril, but his live show (the one with the band) will tape its last episode on 12/11. It's the end of an era... ***100-calorie foods continue to populate store shelves. Sometimes these foods are AWESOME and other times, well, they're just laughably tiny portions of regular products. Have you spotted any particularly silly and disappointing 100-calorie foods? WE WANNA KNOW!Email us and tell us all about it. That's all we've got. HG out!
