***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
will happen in the very near future. Keep an eye out for the HTML versions in

Hungry Girl Today: 6.14.10
Spotted on Shelves...
Jamba Yogurt & Sorbet Bars - The smoothie people are invading your home
freezer! These swirl-icious frozen treats come in the following fun flavors:
Coconut Pineapple Passion Smashin' (Best. Bars. On Earth.), Vanilla
Blueberry Pomegranate Perfection (not our favorite), and Vanilla Strawberry
Jubilation (AWE-SOME)! Plus, they are all natural and contain good-for-you
probiotics. YEE-HAA! Each bar has 80 - 90 calories, 1 - 2g fat, 20 - 25mg
sodium, 18 - 20g carbs, 3g fiber, 12 - 13g sugars, and 1g protein (POINTS®
value 1*). Click to find 'em!
Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Fillets - Delicious lean chicken that's
ready to go? Yup! This stuff comes frozen and fully cooked -- just heat it up
in the oven or microwave. Each seasoned piece (about 3.5 oz.) has 110
calories, 1.5g fat, 230mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, and 24g
protein (POINTS® value 2*). Check the freezer aisle for this poultry ASAP.
Lucini Italia Gourmet Pouch Sauces - Such a smart idea -- that's the first
thought we had when these showed up at the HG HQ. The 3-serving pouches
are microwavable and can even be boiled -- which is VERY convenient. But
the amazing flavor is even MORE noteworthy! These all-natural, no-sugar-
added sauces come in Tuscan Marinara with Roasted Garlic, Spicy Tuscan
Tomato, and Rustic Tomato Basil. Each 1/2-cup serving has 60 - 70 calories,
3 - 4.5g fat, 410 - 480mg sodium, 7g carbs, <1 - 1g fiber, 4 - 5g sugars, and
1g protein (POINTS® value 1 - 2*). Click to find them in stores or just
buy 'em online!

Hungry Girl TV: Coming to a Living Room Near You!
This Dish Has Been Censored!
X-Rated Nutritional Info!
Watchdog group CSPI (Center for Science in the Public Interest) has just
released its 2010 Xtreme Eating Awards. Here are a few of the SCARIEST
items we spotted...
P.F. Chang's Double Pan-Fried Noodles Combo - Imagine a plate of greasy
egg noodles, fried in oil 'til crisp. Now add beef, chicken, shrimp, AND pork.
This can't end well. Not only does this dish contain a horrific 1,820 calories
and 84g fat, but it also has 7,690mg sodium!!! Even though this thing
supposedly serves four, those stats are still nuts. Make our So Low Mein w/
Chevys Crab & Shrimp Quesadilla - HOW is it that this seafood-stuffed item
has more calories and fat than a quesadilla made with pork? INSANITY!
These quesadillas are made of giant white-flour tortillas, cream sauce,
cheese, guacamole, sour cream... and some shrimp and crab. The total?
1,790 calories and 126 fat grams. ACK!
The Cheesecake Factory Pasta Carbonara with Chicken - We've called out
crazy restaurant carbonaras before, and we're glad CSPI caught this
absurdly heavy version. A serving has more than 2,200 calories and 80
grams of saturated fat -- that's not even the total fat count! Our version is
WAAAAY lighter. P.S. Click here for our Cheesecake Factory survival guide!
***Good news, chewers! Mimi's Cafe has undergone a Magnifique Menu
Makeover, which includes the addition of a Small Plates menu and new items
on the calorie-conscious Fresh & Fit menu. The Mini Wedge salad with 70
calories, the 255-calorie Petite Filet, and the Grilled Veggie Flatbread with
475 calories all sound PERFECT... ***Want to lose weight but need a little
extra help? Lucky you -- the Woman's Day SlimDown with Joy Bauer is here!
The nutritionist and Today show contributor is teaming up with Woman's Day
magazine and people like you for a "special weight loss project." (Oooh,
