The Official HG Book Tour Dates -- Finally!
As you probably know by now, the long-awaited Hungry Girl cookbook: Hungry Girl: Recipes and Survival Strategies for Guilt-Free Eating in the Real World will hit store shelves on April 29th (pre-order it here). And, as part of the fun, we're going on the road for an official HG tour, from 4/29 through 5/21 -- with book signing events in TEN STATES across America (some states will even have TWO or THREE events!). At each one, not only will you be able to have your HG book signed by Lisa Lillien (aka Hungry Girl), but there'll also be free food samples (YAY!), special freebies (super-secret ones), a raffle for HG swag and other cool stuff, and more! OK, enough yapping... here are the official stops on the HG tour (these were chosen based on YOUR votes). Drum roll, please... New York! New Jersey! Boston! Washington, DC! Philadelphia! Atlanta! Chicago! Minneapolis! Dallas! San Francisco! Los Angeles! For the official event locations and details, CLICK HERE RIGHT NOW (and remember to let us know which event you plan to attend -- not a requirement, we just want to know how many goodies to bring!). Hooray! See ya soon!!!
Jell-O Singles - Sure you can get lower-calorie pudding, but these individual packets of just-add-milk instant pudding mix are SO cute, you just may want to give 'em a try. They come in Vanilla (sans milk, each one has 90 fat-free calories and 0g fiber -- POINTS® value 2*) and Chocolate (sans milk, 100 fat-free calories and <1g fiber -- POINTS® value 2*). And look for Sugar Free Singles (with fewer calories), coming soon...
Better'n Peanut Butter in Chocolate - OK, technically this one has only been spotted online, but we hear jars of this reduced-calorie, super-low-fat, chocolate-infused PB sub will be popping up in stores any day now. A 2-tbsp. serving has only 100 calories and TWO grams of fat, plus 2g fiber (POINTS® value 2*). Yay!
Free B-Fast TOMORROW... YAY!
Jamba Gets All Breakfast Happy and Gives Out FREE B-Fast Smoothies!
Hey, frozen beverage lovers. Jamba Juice is rolling out a new line of AM items! And to show you just how committed they are to making sure YOU don't skip breakfast, they're giving out FREE morning-meal smoothies and juices on April 8th. That's right! TOMORROW, before 10 AM, you can walk into participating Jamba Js and get yourself a totally FREE 12-oz. b-fast JJ! Woohoo! The lovely and talented folks at the double J are nice enough to provide nutritional info at their stores. But to save you some time, we're giving you our top picks from the new line -- the Sunrise Strawberry Yogurt Blend (12 oz. = 200 calories, 0.5g fat, 3g fiber -- POINTS® value 3*) and the Bright Eyed & Blueberry Yogurt Blend (12 oz. = 180 calories, 0.5g fat, 3g fiber -- POINTS® value 3*). BTW, we also dig the Jamba Light smoothies -- those each have 150 - 160 calories, a half gram of fat or less, and 2 - 3g fiber per 16-oz. serving (POINTS® value 2 - 3*). Heads Up! There are lots of Jamba offerings that have nutritionals in the 400 - 700 calorie range. So read the info carefully, and steer clear of the ginormous ones, willya?!
HEY! April 12th is National Licorice Day... and this year is the 50th anniversary of Red Vines. To celebrate, the Red Vines peeps are running a contest where fans can compete to have their drawings appear on Red Vines trays. Prizes include trips, scholarships, and more fun stuff. But more importantly, did you know that they make Sugar Free Vines that have just 13 calories each and that ALL Red Vines are fat-free? SWEET! ***Easter may be over, but you can STILL take advantage of Eggology's "Easter Eggschange" promotion. Simply send in an empty egg carton (to be recycled) and tell them why you love the idea of a healthier form of eggs (like their packaged egg whites!). Ten winners will receive $100 worth of products. You've got until 4/23/08 to get your carton and letter in. Egg-cellent (oh come on, what did you expect?). ***Recently published research out of Canada suggests that both too much and too little sleep can cause unhealthy weight gain. According to the study, there's a sleep "sweet spot" of about 7 - 8 hours per night -- less or more than that could actually lead to weight gain. For more info, click here. That's all we've got. HG out!
