With OODLES of Fiber!
Spotted on Shelves...
Fiber One Breads - We don't have full details just yet, but this brand-new line of bread products is popping up on shelves in the Northeast. Bagels, breads and english muffins have been spotted -- and a serving of each contains as much as 56% of the daily value of fiber. Yowsa!
Pringles Baked Wheat Stix Packs - These part stick/part cracker treats, which have just 90 calories and 3.5 - 4g of fat per pouch (POINTS® value 2*), are a nice departure from Pringles' Stepford potato crisp line. Available in Pizza, Crunchy Wheat, Honey Butter, and Vanilla (the Vanilla and Pizza ones rock our socks off!). Yum!!!
The Skinny Cow Skinny Dippers - It may be cold out, but it's not too chilly to enjoy these new frozen, chocolate-dipped, 80-calorie treats from our svelte mooing pal. With only 3g fat (plus 2g fiber!) per pop, these each have a POINTS® value of 1*. Flavors include Vanilla, Mint and Caramel -- and of course, they're ALL dipped in chocolate!
100-Calorie Snacks -- Watch Your Backs!
Are 100-calorie snacks becoming passé? Are they SO last year? Well... maybe not, but there are a SLEW of new portion-controlled products that are popping up with fewer than 100 calories (see "Spotted on Shelves..." if you don't believe us!). And why not -- if the competition for pre-portioned low-cal treats is so fierce, dropping calorie counts a little isn't a bad way to go. Some of our favorites include...
Quaker Chewy 90 Calorie Granola Bars - Each yummy bar contains a gram of fiber and has just 1.5 - 2g fat (POINTS® value 2*). We especially love the new Dark Chocolate Cherry flavor!
Special K Bliss Bars - These 2g-of-fat, 90-calorie snack bars (POINTS® value 2* each) are fruity & chocolatey. Go for the Raspberry (it tastes EXACTLY like red Swedish Fish!) or the Orange (also super-good).
Promax 70 Calorie Bars - Each of these little bars has just 70 calories and 1.5 - 2g fat but is still packed with 5g protein (POINTS® value 2*). Flavors include Cookies 'N Cream, Double Fudge Brownie, and Nutty Butter Crisp. Impressive and satisfying!
Keep 'em coming, snack makers!!!
Let the Games Begin! How Low Can You Go?
Eat Out, Eat Right: The Guide to Healthier Restaurant Eating - This third updated edition of Hope S. Warshaw's book contains a gazillion ideas for eating better while dining out. You'll find general tips as well as info about specific chain restaurants. We're fans!
The Black Book of Hollywood Diet Secrets - Chew like the stars! This book serves up diet secrets from J. Lo (she sniffs grapefruit oil), Carmen Electra (hey, so does she!), Cindy Crawford (her trick is a vinegar-soaked salad before heading out to dinner), and more! From authors Kym Douglas and Cindy Pearlman.
Kim Lyons' Your Body, Your Life: The 12-Week Program to Optimum Physical, Mental & Emotional Fitness - This is a GREAT book from The Biggest Loser trainer Kim Lyons and Lara McGlashan. It'll inspire even the most exercise-resistant human to change his or her lifestyle. This book is motivational, accessible, and not getting the attention it deserves (just our opinion).
Hey, sodium-counters. More good news for you... 48 of Campbell's soups are getting salt-slashing makeovers! The new "Campbell's Select Harvest" line and the kid-friendly soup lineup will feature reformulated favorites with a "heart-healthy" 480mg of sodium or less. That means there'll soon be a total of 85 Campbell's soups with a low or reduced sodium count... YEEEE-HAAAAA!!! ***Just wanted to clear up all the Starbucks Frappuccino rumors. We, too, have heard that The 'Bucks is ditching their Frap Light bases. Not so. Starbucks is phasing out their CRÈME Frappuccino Light bases, but the company's keeping its regular Frappuccino Light bases (for the blended coffee drinks). A subtle difference, but a difference nonetheless. ***Listen up, Vita lovers! A brand-new HG-developed VitaTop is on the way (this could very well be the best flavor EVER)! Stay tuned for all the deets... ***Our good pals over at healthydiningfinder.com have added some new restaurants to their ROCKIN site. Now you'll be able to find HDF-approved items at Red Lobster, Cousins Subs, On The Border, and Mimi's Cafe. Woohoo! ***And if you're still reading this, good for you -- you get FREE STUFF!Click here to get a coupon for a FREE full-size bag of yummy Flat Earth Crisps, while supplies last (just don't eat the whole bag at once). That's all we've got. HG out!
