EatSmart Naturals Garden Veggie Crisps 100 Calorie Packs - We like these
all-natural snacks, which happen to have 40% less sodium than regular
crisps. The stats can rack up quickly with a multi-serving bag, though, so
we're psyched about the new portion-controlled packs. Each has 100
calories, 5g fat, 105mg sodium, 13g carbs, 1g fiber, 0g sugars, and <1g
protein (POINTS® value 2*). Click here to locate, and let the crunching
3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp Bars - If we didn't have a little chocolate
decadence every now and then, we'd likely crack and do some damage.
These new Truffle Crisp treats are a great way to indulge. A 2-bar pack has
170 calories, 9g fat, 30mg sodium, 20g carbs, 0g fiber, 18g sugars, and 2g
protein (POINTS® value 4*). Mmmmm...
Lightlife Smart Wings - Hot wings are good, but their stats are typically
CRAZY (the deep-frying, the fatty skin, yada yada!). Kill your cravings with
these meatless faux-drummies in Buffalo or Honey BBQ. (We like spritzing
the Buffalo ones with Wish-Bone's ranch spray dressing.) Eat 4 wings for
110 - 120 calories, 0 - 3g fat, 430 - 680mg sodium, 6 - 16g carbs, 4g fiber,
<1 - 9g sugars, and 13g protein (POINTS® value 2*). Click here to find 'em,
and tell your vegetarian friends!
Tips on Shelf-Preservation!
Ever find yourself standing at the fridge, sniffing some food item and
wondering, "Is this still okay to eat? It SMELLS okay... but maybe it's not."
Quit the game-play. If you want some tips on food storage, expiration vs.
sell-by dates, kitchen safety, etc., go to ShelfLifeAdvice.com NOW. It's a
REALLY useful resource that can help protect you from eating icky, spoiled
food AND save you cash by keeping that food from spoiling in the first place.
We're sooooo behind that. "How long do bacon bits last?" (Four months in the
pantry!) "Has my baking powder gone bad?" (If it doesn't bubble in hot
water, it has!) "How long can I wait before I need to get rid of this old jar of
jelly?" (If it's more than a month old, believe it or not, it could be time!)
ShelfLifeAdvice.com ROCKS. And FUN NEWS BREAK: Scientists in India say
they've discovered a way to produce tomatoes that stay fresh a month
longer. YOWSA! That's an extra 30 days you get to hang out with your
tomato pal before chomping on it. Weeeee!
Bready to Roll!
It seems like every week there's some new, low-calorie bread item popping
up. (We're not complaining!) Last week, it was the Nature's Own Sandwich
Rounds; the week before THAT, we gabbed about Thomas' Bagel Thins. Well,
hold onto your Laughing Cow, people, because Sara Lee has just introduced
a brand-new product -- 130 Calories & Delightful Bagels, which come in Plain
and 100% Whole Wheat. Each of those nicely sized bagels has 130 calories
(duh!), 1g fat, 330 - 340mg sodium, 24g carbs, 6 - 8g fiber, <1 - 1g sugars,
and 10g protein (POINTS® value 2*). If you like Sara Lee's Delightful bread,
you'll flip for these. And if you're a loyal supporter of Arnold Select/Oroweat
Sandwich Thins, you might be interested in this: Food Network cutie Claire
Robinson of 5 Ingredient Fix put together a few quickie recipes using our
favorite thin buns, plus 10 tips for keeping things speedy in the kitchen.
Check it all out and CHEW!
Sad news! Dreyer's/Edy's Loaded, the guilt-free line of goodie-packed frozen
dairy desserts, has been discontinued. Let's see if we can make change
happen -- CLICK HERE and beg them to bring it back!!! (If the site is slow,
give them a call!) ***Love scones but fear the nutritional stats? Check out
these all-natural, just-add-water scone mixes from Ella Baking Mixes. A good-
sized scone from a batch of 10 has about 190 calories... WORTH IT, but
make 'em smaller if you want 'em snack-sized and lower-cal. Bonus: They've
got omega-3s and soy protein! ***Guiltless Gourmet, king of no-guilt tortilla
chips, has a new flavor that sounds AWESOME: Spinach Artichoke Parmesan!
Chips with dip-flavor already on 'em? YES!!! ***Oh, cool contest alert! Take
the America's Wellness Challenge by this Sunday (2/28) for a chance to win
$15,000. Even if you don't nab the cash prize, you'll learn a LOT about the
state of your health and what you could do to improve it. Truly worth
entering... ***Want some new, low-cal condiments in your refrigerator?
Maybe Mustard Girl All American Mustards are right for you. Super-tasty...
but we suspect Mustard Girl may be working nights as St. Pauli Girl. (What?
They wear the same uniform!) ***And what goes with mustard better than
ketchup? Have you seen the new Dip & Squeeze ketchup packet from Heinz?
It's genius! It holds three times the amount compared to an ordinary packet,
and the alternate methods of opening allow you to dip or squeeze to your
heart's content -- mess-free! And, speaking of our favorite sweet tomato 'n
vinegar dip, starting this summer, Heinz's core line of ketchup will have 15%
less sodium. Nice! That's all we've got. HG out!
