The Kewlest Kid on the Block!
Reed Alexander is our new BFF! Not just because he plays the hysterically
evil Nevel on iCarly (that IS pretty awesome, though), but also because he
has launched his very own website called KewlBites, targeted at helping
everyone -- especially teens -- eat smarter and feel better. Oh, did we
mention that Reed is 14 years old? Yeah. He's not a nutritionist or Doogie-
Howser-type doctor, he's just smart: He did a bunch of research and lost
about 15 pounds, and now he wants to share his newfound knowledge. We
think his site is totally worth passing along to middle/high school students...
but really, anyone could benefit from this info. GO, REED!
The Apple of Our Hungry Eyes!
Way to join the party, Applebee's! The casual neighborhood chain has finally
released a line of lightened-up meals -- all-new entrées under 550 calories.
We've tried them, and they're ALL incredible. Every single one. (Pinky
swear!) BTW, we nabbed the individual calorie counts from our California
menus, and the highest-cal meal tops out at 500! Here they are now...
Grilled Dijon Chicken & Portobellos (450 calories) - Grilled chicken is topped
with those portobellos as well as roasted red peppers, cheddar cheese, and a
Dijon sauce. AND it comes with steamed herb potatoes and a side of
veggies. We love this!
Spicy Shrimp Diavolo (500 calories) - For those who like it HOT, this meal of
chilied-up shrimp, spicy tomato-basil sauce, veggies, and Parm-sprinkled
whole-wheat pasta should give your hunger a fiery kick to the curb.
Asian Crunch Salad (490 calories) - Greens, sugar snap peas, roasted red
peppers, and cukes are topped with grilled chicken, sliced almonds, and an
Asian vinaigrette dressing. AMAZING!
Asiago Peppercorn Steak (390 calories) - This grilled sirloin with cracked
peppercorn and melted cheese is crazy-good. Piles of mixed veggies and
potatoes accompany it. WOWOW, it's good.
Grilled Shrimp & Island Rice (290 calories) - You get skewers of seasoned
shrimp over tropical rice, plus a lovely assortment of veggies on the side.
Mmmmm.... so much delicious shrimp!
Good news for residents of California, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and
Arizona: VitaTops are now being sold at select Costco locations, for a limited
time only... And at great prices! As for everyone else? Don't miss an
amazing Vita special coming up in tomorrow's HG email! ***Pop quiz,
hotshot! Celestial Seasonings has launched its PossibiliTEAS Facebook quiz,
and for each person who takes the quiz, CS will donate a dollar to protect
tropical forests. A mere $15 saves a whole acre, so take the test and pass it
on! ***Dunkin' Donuts is REALLY getting into the guilt-free game! You can
now order ANY of DD's breakfast wraps or sandwiches with egg whites. A
Bacon, Egg White & Cheese Wake-Up Wrap has 180 calories and 8g fat!
Were so proud... Now come to CA already!!! ***Reader's Digest recently
polled 16,000 people in 16 countries worldwide to find out opinions on dieting
and body-consciousness. Nearly 70% of American women think our culture
focuses too much on weight, yet 85% have tried to lose weight at some
point. Click and read more about who feels the most pressure to be thin, who
pops the most diet pills, etc. ***Anyone freaked out by the Red Robin burger
in our recent Yahoo! story on 1,000-calorie meals? Check out the Customizer
feature on the chain's website to make sure that if you DO end up there, you
DON'T end up with a 1,000-cal meal. We'll be playing around with this fun
feature in our free time... That's all we've got! HG out!
