muffin or shoved into a tortilla, check out the latest from Jimmy Dean. Egg
whites, reduced-fat cheese, turkey sausage, potatoes... all in a nukable bowl.
The bowls each have 230 calories, 7g fat, 19g carbs, and 2g fiber (POINTS®

Burger Bonanza! Best Bets Vs. Meaty Monstrosities...
If you EVER eat burgers out, you NEED to take a look at this fairly
comprehensive list of nutritionals from a bazillion restaurant chains (fast food
and sit-down). It may shock you. It may FREAK you out. And it may
pleasantly surprise you (though that last one isn't likely). In any case, you
have to find out how many calories are in our country's popular hamburgers.
Here are a few highlights (or should we say, lowlights)...
Chili's Smokehouse Bacon Triple-The-Cheese Big Mouth Burger without side
of Jalapeño-Ranch Dressing - 1,840 calories!!!
Johnny Rockets Bacon Double Cheddar Burger - 1,400 calories!!!
T.G.I. Friday's Jack Daniel's Burger - 1,540 calories!!!
Red Robin A.1. Peppercorn Burger - 1,440 calories!!!
Okay, has your curiosity been piqued? Click here. And one little bit of info.
When we crave a burger, we opt for a single from In-N-Out -- protein style
with grilled onions, and ketchup & mustard instead of the regular sauce. That
burger only has 160 calories -- so low that we've been known to swallow two
at once (taking the time to chew them, of course!).
If you're a fan of Sharon's Sorbet and you haven't checked the labels in a
while, you may be surprised to learn that several of the fruit-flavored
sorbets -- which used to have 70 - 90 calories per half-cup serving -- now
have 80 - 130 calories. According to the folks at Sharon's, they reformulated
their sorbets months ago to make them sweeter and to improve the
texture... thus the extra calories. But we also learned they're planning to
reformulate AGAIN very soon, making the switch from corn syrup to brown
rice syrup -- and they suspect calorie counts may go back down a bit! We'll
keep you updated. ***Hey, Starbucks morning visitors! The Bucks wants you
back so badly, they'll give you a deal by offering you a $2 beverage after
2PM! Just show up with a receipt from that AM, and you can get any Grande
iced drink for just two bucks! Woohoo! ***Speaking of coffee, did you know
that drinking a caffeinated beverage after a workout could help refuel your
muscles? It's true, according to recent research. Click here to read more
about how ingesting caffeine with your carbs could help your muscles after
exercise.***OOOH, did you know that we're SNACK, er, SMACK in the
middle of moving to brand-new groovy HG offices? It's true! And some of our
favorite food peeps have decided to join in on the excitement and nourish us
while we transport our items to our new home. So what's keeping us
energized and full? South Beach Living bars, Kim's Light Bagels, Lightfull
smoothies, and Pizza Fit 'n Free. Yum! More info, pics of the new place, and
special offers from those sponsors coming soon. Woohoo! That's all we've
got. HG out!
