Spotted on Shelves...
Nissin Choice Ramen, Savory Herb Chicken and Slow Stewed Beef - If you secretly covet just-add-water ramen noodles but don't love the nutritional price you need to pay for them, you should check these out. A serving of each noodley creation has 140 calories, 1g fat, and 2g fiber (POINTS® value 2*). Compared to the company's regular ramen, that's 50 fewer calories and 6g less fat per serving, not to mention 25% less sodium. It also comes in Shrimp Supreme, but that one's harder to find.
Egg Beaters With Yolk - Good news for egg-lovers! Egg Beaters now makes a line of their liquid egg substitute with just a touch of yolk. There's the original flavor, Southwestern, Cheese & Chive, and Garden Vegetable. A 1/4-cup serving (the equivalent of 1 egg) of each has 40 calories and 1.5 - 2g fat (POINTS® value 1*). Not bad! The only bummer is that it appears the yolk-infused flavored varieties are replacing the lower-calorie fat-free flavored ones. But they'll still have the 30-calories-per-serving fat-free original kind (whew!).
Lucky Pot Stickers with Sweet & Sour Sauce - If YOU'RE lucky, you'll find these guilt-free Asian dumplings at your local supermarket. Look for them in the freezer aisle (usually with the vegetarian foods). You can have three of these stickers with a tbsp. of the sauce for 90 calories, 1g fat, and 1g fiber (POINTS® value 2*). They're INCREDIBLE! FYI, there's also a version that comes with Traditional Sauce, if you like to keep it classic.
Buy 2 Packs of Bars for Your Free Pedometer!
Get Fit, Eat Bars, and Get a Free Pedometer!
Free Pedometer from Dr. Melina! - Buy two 15-bar packs of Dr. Melina's super-delicious Protein Bars on Amazon (they're not called super-delicious, but we added that because they ARE super-delicious), and you'll get a FREE Omron HJ-151 Aerobic Hip Pedometer (it counts steps, calories, and distance, and has an approximate value of $19.99). Just email your receipt (by 4/6/08) to firstname.lastname@example.org. BTW, each protein-packed bar has 180 calories, 5 - 6g fat, and 5g fiber (POINTS® value 3*). Go, Melina!
Meet FitDeck - If you dread exercising, this handy little deck of cards (that comes in a cute holder!) might be just what you need. It features 50 basic body movements (in three levels) that require NO equipment or machines of any kind. For a few extra bucks, you can even get a DVD that shows you all the exercises in action. VERY cool!
Weeee... Wii Fit! - This won't be out until May, but if you have a Nintendo Wii, you can start getting excited now. Complete with a wobbly Wii Balance Board that you stand on, Wii Fit allows you to participate in activities like skiing, hula hooping, yoga, push-ups and other strength training exercises, balance games and more (some serious calorie-burners)! AND, you can check your BMI and even track your progress. Amazing!!!
If you're one of those people who simply has NOT been able to get over the phasing out of the McDonald's Southwest Salad (even with our official HG recipe swap), you'll be THRILLED to know that this limited edition, seasonal salad is BACK, BACK, BACK! Find the super salad (which is packed with corn, black beans, tortilla strips and more) at McD's NOW thru the summer. Yay! ***Yes, shelves are overflowing with 100-calorie packs of EVERYTHING (including our latest sightings, Swedish Fish and Sour Patch Kids!). But did you know that there are now portion-controlled snack packs for your pooch? We spied 50-calorie pouches from Pup-Peroni. They look so much like human versions of snack packs, you need to be careful not to eat 'em. The thing is, who knows how many calories regular dog treats have anyway?! ***Hmmmmm... Can tight jeans make your abs flat? The authors of Flat Belly Diet! think so. They say that "mind tricks" like holding on to your too-tight jeans and keeping them in full view during meals may be one of the keys to shedding pounds. We say schlepping your snug "goal pants" to a restaurant on a date would just be weird (and possibly off-putting, no?). So only do this in the privacy of your own home, people (not that you needed us to tell you that). That's all we've got. HG out!
CHEW ON THIS: Today, March 31st, is Oranges & Lemons Day. Celebrate by chewing oranges and downing some Crystal Light Lemonade... Weeeeeeee!
