***ATTENTION TEXT-ONLY HG SUBSCRIBERS (this means YOU!): Since only
a tiny fraction of our audience receives our emails in text-only form, and the
emails look so much better designed in HTML, we have decided to stop
sending out the text-only versions of Hungry Girl newsletters. This change

Spotted on Shelves...
NutriFit Mighty Mixes - These little snack packs of dried fruit, nuts, etc., are
GENIUS -- the PERFECT emergency food! There's Mighty Man Mix (with
sunflower seeds, almonds, cranberries, and dates), Mighty Munchy Mix
(almonds, cranberries, pineapple, and roasted corn), and Mighty Mom Mix
(cranberries, soy nuts, and raisins). All the mixes contain dark chocolate,
too. Each pack (about 1.5 oz.) has 160 - 180 calories, 3.5 - 7g fat, 27 - 30g
carbs, 2 - 3g fiber, and 2 - 4g protein (POINTS® value 3 - 4*). And no, you
don't need to be a man or a mom (or a munchy) to enjoy this stuff. Click
here and scroll to order! (They're not on shelves yet.)
Betty Crocker Gluten Free Cake Mixes - Betty is on a ROLL! Last week it was
instant mashed potatoes, and now... cake mixes that are friendly to those
who avoid gluten. In Devil's Food Cake and Yellow Cake, a serving of the
mix itself has 140 - 170 calories, 0 - 1g fat, 34 - 36g carbs, 0g fiber, and 1 -
2g protein (POINTS® value 3*). But don't just follow the box instructions!
Check out our tips for keeping your cake's stats under control before you
bake. Heads up: Betty also makes gluten-free brownie and cookie mixes.
Health Valley Organic Vegetarian Chili Black Bean Mole with Coffee and
Cocoa Flavor - This new chili from Health Valley ROCKS! It's SO delicious
and unique, PLUS it's got 40% less sodium than other brands. A cup of the
bean-packed goodness has 200 calories, 3g fat, 36g carbs, 7g fiber, and 11g
protein (POINTS® value 3*). Do NOT be scared by the cocoa-and-coffee
thing -- it's REALLY, REALLY good!
Our Current Favorite Color: GREENE!
By now, you've probably heard all about Mr. Bob Greene, the man behind
Best Life and trainer to (drumroll, please...) Oprah!!! If you haven't stopped
by his website, we encourage you to scope it out (after you're done reading
this news, of course). The latest from team Greene? Well, Bob has a new
book out called The Best Life Guide to Managing Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes,
featuring a special Best Life program for those with diabetes or pre-diabetes.
If that's you (or a loved one), check out the book! And the REALLY exciting
news? We've partnered with our buddies at Best Life to offer YOU, the HG
readers, one FREE month as a member of the Best Life website, using either
the regular program or the new program for people with diabetes/pre-
diabetes. We like Bob's whole change-for-life mentality, so if you're looking
for a boost in the right direction, take this offer and run with it... on a
treadmill... while watching Dancing with the Stars. (BTW, we're enjoying
Kelly O. way more than we expected to.) Click here to register for your free
month! (Sign up before 11/30/09.)
Death of a Corn Dog... Could Waffles Be Next?
We're very sad to report that our beloved Morningstar Farms Corn Dogs
(both the full-size and the minis) are likely gone forever. After mysteriously
disappearing over the summer, due to a so-called "temporary out of stock
situation," the world's best meat-free corn dogs have officially been
discontinued. Soooo sad... Rest in peace, corn pups. In other news, another
of our freezer-aisle staples -- Eggo Nutri-Grain Low Fat Waffles -- has been
reported MIA. Apparently, flood damage and technology transitions at Eggo
have led to supply issues, and the waffles aren't expected to be fully back in
stock 'til mid-2010. ACK! Click here for the latest info, and grab some Kashi
GOLEAN Waffles to comfort you during this difficult time...
Have you noticed that lots of food products are getting makeovers these
days? The latest one we've spied is 100 Calorie Packs (by Nabisco), or
should we say, "Nabisco 100 Cal." New logo. New box. Not sure why. It's
kinda cute, but we think we like the old packaging better. You?
***Ooooh, "coming soon" alert! Mann Packing, creator of our beloved
Broccoli Cole Slaw, will soon launch Lo Mein Stir Fry, a broccoli slaw mix
complete with cooked noodles and teriyaki sauce -- and it clocks in at just 80
calories per serving. Nicely done! ***A recent study found that people who
chewed sugar-free gum for a total of one hour in the morning consumed
fewer calories overall compared to non-gum-chewers. Fascinating stuff, but
even more interesting? The study was funded by the Wrigley Science
Institute (as in Wrigley gum), whose primary purpose is to conduct research
related to the "benefits of chewing." Hmmmmm. We're on board with the
whole gum-chewing thing, but just remember to stick with sugar-free gum!
***Falling stats update! We've noticed that Green Giant Just for One Broccoli
and Cheese Sauce now contains 40 calories per tray, instead of 45 calories.
Same delicious, portion-controlled goodness, but with five fewer calories.
PAR-TAY! That's all we've got. HG out!
