Morningstar Farms Veggie Cakes - In both Ginger Teriyaki and Southwestern Style, these little patties are great as a side dish, as a mini meal, or scrambled into egg whites. Each one has 110 - 130 calories, 1.5 - 3g fat, and 2g fiber (POINTS® value 2*). Pssst... the Southwestern Style cakes are better than the Ginger Teriyaki ones!
All-Bran Fiber Drink Mix - If you think a 20-calorie drink mix (POINTS® value 0*) that packs in 10 grams of fiber sounds weird, you're not alone. But these come in Iced Tea and Pink Lemonade, and we're willing to at least give 'em a try.
New Flavors of Luna Bars - YAY... new Luna Bars are popping up everywhere! Check out the two newest flavors -- Berry Almond and Chocolate Raspberry. These have 180 - 190 calories, 4 - 5g fat, and 3 - 5g fiber per bar (POINTS® value 3*).
Eat Rite = Eat WRONG?!
Just a friendly neighborhood HG warning -- if you happen to stumble upon pizzas or other frozen foods made by a brand called Eat Rite, be afraid. Be VERY afraid. We've heard LOTS of buzz from subscribers who are extremely skeptical of the accuracy of their nutrition labels. Some have even had said foods TESTED only to find that their nutritional content was shockingly higher than the labels state (we have even SEEN these results, and although we cannot verify for sure that the info provided in these lab results is true, we personally believe it is). Consider yourself warned. We were lured in by the personal pizzas years ago but ditched them when we finally admitted to ourselves that the buttery-tasting crust and puddles of oil that formed on top of 'em meant they probably had more than the 210 - 245 calories and 3 - 5g fat printed on the labels. In the meantime, drown your sorrows in this very entertaining video about those same sorry pizzas, brought to us by our good pals over at WhateverHollywood.com. If anyone can help us feel better about sad news in the world of guilt-free foods, it's these girls. And while you're there, don't just watch their "Love at First Bite" pizza video -- watch ALL of their videos. DO IT!!! These girls ROCK and are our new BFFs!

Things You Need to Know About...
Electric bras and restaurant calories on your phone?! WOWOWOW!!!
Text Message for Restaurant Calories... Yay!!! - Do you dream about walking into a restaurant and having all the nutritional info right at your fingertips?! Well pinch yourselves, people, because that dream is now a reality. There's a database of about a bazillion jillion chain restaurant foods and their calories, fat, carbs, and protein -- and you can access the nutritionals simply by texting the restaurant name and menu item to DIET1 (34381). Within seconds you'll get the answer sent to your phone! Go on. Try it. We've tried it out, and so far the info seems fairly accurate... have fun and let us know what you think!
Electric Bras?! YUP! - These heart-rate-monitoring sports bras give new meaning to the words "wireless bra". The bra sends info to a watch you wear on your wrist (good thing... 'cuz lifting your shirt to see if you're at your target heart rate would be a little embarrassing!). Some of the fancier watches even track calories burned and more. Check 'em out. They're fun and functional!
Here's a weird one for you. We've learned that frozen pickle popsicles -- or "Pickle Sickles" -- are taking the world by storm!These chilly treats are made from real pickles and pickle juice, and they're being picked up by schools and moms everywhere as a healthier alternative to sugary popsicles. Freaky -- but we have to admit, we're actually looking forward to tasting them! ***Paying more attention to food labels these days? You'll be happy to know that ConAgra (one of the largest food companies in the world) is launching its own nutrition guide featuring the USDA MyPyramid, plus easy-to-read info making it much simpler to understand. Keep an eye out for these specially labeled packages starting in May. ***Tomorrow's the BIG day, peeps! The latest (and greatest!) HG-developed VitaTop is making its debut! DO NOT MISS THIS LAUNCH... and our free-shipping special -- yay!!! ***Everyone knows that exercise is good for you. But here's a little motivational info in case you're a couch potato who's convinced you're a lost cause. Studies show that even if you start exercising later in life, you can still reap HUGE health benefits from it. But the earlier you get movin', the better! So consider this the kick in the pants you need to start working out. Oh come on, just do it! That's all we've got... HG out!
A Frozen Pickle Sensation!
CHEW ON THIS: Today, March 3rd, is National Cold Cuts Day. Celebrate with pickle spears rolled in slices of lean turkey breast... Weeeeee!
HG Oops! In Friday's "Food Fakers!" email, we mistakenly said that a serving of Ken's Steak House Dressing in Lite Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette has a POINTS® value of 3* -- it actually has a POINTS® value of 2*. We still think that 80 calories and 6g fat is pretty high for a light dressing, but we're sorry for the POINTS® misprint and wanted you all to know.
