Spotted on Shelves...
Kellogg's Cereal Grab N Go Packs - If you still love sugary cereals as much as you did when you were a kid, but you're afraid you'll down an entire box in one sitting, these portion-controlled pouches might interest you. Available in Froot Loops (90 calories, 0.5g fat, <1g fiber -- POINTS® value 2*) and Corn Pops (70 calories, 0g fat, 0g fiber -- POINTS® value 1*). We like to toss em onto our fat-free yogurt. Mmmmm!
All-Bran Strawberry Medley Cereal - Just to balance out our promotion of sugary cereal, here's a healthier one, featuring bran flakes and squares, granola clusters, and real (freeze-dried) strawberries. This fiber-packed stuff clocks in with 170 calories, 1.5g fat, and 10g fiber per cup (POINTS® value 3*).
High Fiber V8 100% Vegetable Juice - It's the 75th anniversary of V8, and this veggie-rific beverage is still kickin'! We've heard there's a new high-fiber version (60 calories, 0g fat, 5g fiber, and a POINTS® value of 0* per 8-oz. serving) hitting shelves now.
75 Years of Drinkable Vegetables Weeeee!
Secret Nutritionals To Be EXPOSED?!?!
Remember the NYC push to get calorie counts posted on menus at chain restaurants? The rule flopped in the courtroom, since it was deemed unfair that only the restaurants already listing their nutritionals online had to comply. Some of those restaurants even rebelled by yanking nutritional info from their websites (ANNOYING!). Well the plan is back -- and it's better. The new NYC regulation (due to go into effect on March 31st) applies to ANY chain with at least 15 separate outlets, INCLUDING those that don't currently provide any nutritional info. So it looks like we could all be learning the calorie and fat counts from chains that currently keep that information under wraps -- places like T.G.I. Friday's and IHOP. Yowsa! More on this as the story develops...
February Is Heart Month...
Lots of celeb-centric, ticker-related red dress stuff going on this Feb., people!
Diet Coke & Heidi Klum - They go together like peanut butter & jelly! Okay, maybe not -- but they're teaming up to raise money for women's heart health awareness and research. Heidi will wear a red dress (the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness) to the Academy Awards, and you can enter for a chance to win it. The original John Galliano couture dress is valued at about $6,000... fancy! Diet Coke will contribute $1 for each entry (up to $250,000) to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health. Click here for the full scoop, and be on the lookout for Diet Coke's new packaging promoting heart health.
Campbell's & Toni Braxton - Designer Lisa Perry created THREE red dress designs for Toni (who is a heart disease survivor), inspired by Campbell's Soup. Braxton revealed the online voters' favorite at the Woman's Day Red Dress Awards this past Thursday. Campbell's is donating $1 to the American Heart Association for each vote that was cast. And NOW they're donating an additional buck (up to $75,000) for every click on the winning design, from now until mid-April. So go click-crazy for heart health!
Diet Coke -- Good for Heart Health?
$2 + 200 Calories = Fast Food Fun!!!
Quiznos may have some crazy-high-cal stuff on their menu, but they JUST introduced a couple of totally reasonable FLATBREAD SAMMIES with only around 200 calories each. Available in Balsamic Chicken (190 calories, 3.5g fat, 1g fiber -- POINTS® value 4*) and Black Angus Steak (200 calories, 4g fat, 1g fiber -- POINTS® value 4*), these lil' flatbread-wrapped sandwiches sell for just two bucks. (Just be careful when ordering -- the other Sammies have way more calories, unless you special order them without cheese and dressing.) We tried 'em... YUMMMMM! Go, Quiznos! ***Heads up, VitaMuffin fans! The limited-time-only Deep Chocolate VitaMuffin Lovin' Hearts are now on sale! Each super-cute 100-calorie treat has only 1.5g fat and a whopping 6g fiber (POINTS® value 1*). Get your orders in now... they come in a pretty red box and make a great guilt-free Valentine's Day gift! ***Speaking of Valentine's Day, if your sweetie watches his or her sugar intake, you'll be happy to know that those cute little conversation hearts now come in a Splenda-sweetened version. Woohoo! ***Miller Brewing is planning to roll out a brand-new, 64-calorie light beer targeted at women. Keep an eye out for Miller Genuine Draft Light 64... ***A new food "scoring" method is on the way. Later this year, the Overall Nutritional Quality Index (ONQI), a system that will provide us with an at-a-glance ranking of nutritional info and food comparisons, will be available in thousands of grocery stores. We're intrigued. That's all we've got. HG out!
CHEW ON THIS: Today, February 4th, is National Stuffed Mushroom Day! Why not whip up HG's Crazy-Creamy Crab Stuffed Mushrooms in celebration? You can eat TWELVE of them for just 135 calories and 3g fat!
