Quaker True Delights Instant Oatmeal - Creative oatmeal flavors alert!
Quaker is expanding its True Delights line with these brand-new instant
oatmeal packets -- there's Wild Blueberry Muffin (tastes like the real deal)
and Hazelnut Latte (more nutty than java-ish). They rule! Each serving has
150 calories, 2 - 2.5g fat, 200mg sodium, 28 - 29g carbs, 4g fiber, 9g sugars,
and 5g protein (POINTS® value 2*). YUM!
Phillips Crab Meat - Hassle-free crab? Sign us up! In pull-top containers,
there are four fat-free varieties with just 180mg sodium a serving: Jumbo
Lump, Backfin, Special, and Claw (kinda sounds like a team of crime-fighting
crustaceans, no?). Jumbo Lump is the most delicious; Claw's the most
affordable. Each 2-oz. serving has 40 calories, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars,
and 10g protein (POINTS® value 1*).
Eat Smart Simple Noodles Grab n' Go Cups - This stuff gets our "Awesome
Idea" award for the week. You get a cup with fresh veggies, a packet of
ramen-esque noodles, and a container of sauce -- Teriyaki, Spicy Orange, or
Kung Pao. Add water, nuke, drain, add sauce, and OMG! YUMMY LUNCH!
Each container has 210 - 240 calories, 7 - 9g fat, 360 - 570mg sodium, 32 -
37g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 8 - 12g sugars, and 4 - 5g protein (POINTS® value
5*). They're currently only available at select markets, so request 'em!
Workouts with Fido!
You need to exercise, your dog needs to exercise... Why not combine the
two? Well, short of walking and playing fetch (or bench-pressing your Bichon
Frise), it's hard to come up with activities you can do together. Hooray for
Tricia Murphy Madden and her best buddy (and Cocker Spaniel), Mona Lica!
They came up with "My Best Friend's Workout" for pets and their parents.
Choose a specific workout fit for your furry friend -- from little lap dogs to
older animals. Check out their DVD program to learn how your daily walk in
the park can become a full-body workout!
Easy Solution to a Super-Common Dilemma
"Help! A bunch of people are coming to my house for a Super Bowl party and
I don't have time to cook for all of them and I don't want them to hate me
for serving diet food but I don't want to be stuck with greasy pizza and wings
either and what if some of them are vegetarians and..."
BREATHE. The quick and easy fix for a party meal: SUBS. Subway has just
unveiled its new Fresh Fit Platter, loaded with Veggie Delite, Black Forest
Ham, Turkey Breast, Subway Club, and Turkey Breast & Black Forest Ham
sandwiches. There's plenty of meat and bread to satisfy huge appetites and,
if ordered on wheat, each 4-inch sub will have at least 3g fiber and only
about 150 - 215 calories and 1.5 - 3.5g fat (POINTS® value 3 - 4*). Just
make sure they don't add cheese. One platter serves 5 - 9 people (15 mini
subs), so plan accordingly. And check out last week's survival guide for some
added fun. It's gonna be OK.
Target's New Balancing Act
We like it when companies (especially big ones) step it up in terms of better-
for-you food. That's why we're SO happy that Target's private Archer Farms
label is branching out with its new Simply Balanced line. There are more than
70 items in the lineup, from granola bars to frozen pizzas. Each product has
no more than 30% of calories from fat, no trans fats, no artificial colors or
flavors, a limited amount of sugar, etc. Well done! STILL, check the nutrition
labels before you buy -- read those calorie counts closely. Now can we get
skinny mirrors in the dressing rooms, too?
We're big fans of Jordan's Skinny Mixes, new-ish and totally tasty cocktail
mixes with 0 - 5 calories per serving! They're 100% party-ready (just add
alcohol), available in select stores and online, and come in flavors like
Cosmopolitan and Margarita. And don't let the scantily clad cartoon hoochies
on the labels scare you away -- the stuff tastes GOOOOD. ***For a real, live,
thoroughly clad human traveling the world and fighting fat, here's Harley
Pasternak! He's picked up diet tips from around the globe and wants to
spill 'em. Click here to read more. ***We've mentioned that shopping can
burn calories, and researchers agree. According to recently revealed data,
the average woman burns about 48,000 calories a year SHOPPING. That's
based on about 3 hours of weekly browsing at a decent pace and includes
food shopping. FYI, said study was conducted by Skinny Cow. ***BAD
NEWS! Due to production delays, Kashi is now having a shortage of those
GoLean waffles we love. First Eggo, now this? Wahhhh! Low-fat Van's it is!
***Hey! Do you exercise regularly? Do you REALLY? Recently published poll
results show that the percentage of Americans who exercise regularly
dropped in 2009 (not by much, but still). Let's turn things around this year!
That's all we've got. HG out!
