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

New Flavor! Mousse Temptations by Jell-O, Chocolate Mint Sensation - We're
THRILLED to announce this all-new option in the Mousse Temptations lineup.

SPOONABLE! Each snack has 60 calories, 3g fat, 100mg sodium, 10g carbs,
<1g fiber, 0g sugars, and 2g protein (POINTS® value 1*). And no, you don't
have to wait 'til after dinner to have one...
Bush's Best Grillin' Beans, Texas Ranchero & Black Bean Fiesta - Sure,
homemade baked beans are good. But if you don't have time and want
delicious ones fast, check these out! Both new flavors sound worthy of any
backyard bash (or indoor meal). A 1/2-cup serving has 110 - 120 calories, 1 -
2g fat, 570 - 630mg sodium, 20 - 21g carbs, 5g fiber, 2g sugars, and 5 - 6g
protein (POINTS® value 1 - 2*). We can't wait to give 'em a try...
Kellogg's FiberPlus Antioxidants Cereal - Super-charged breakfast items
make us happy. Fiber PLUS antioxidants? Score! A 1-cup serving of the Berry

fiber, 12g sugars, and 3g protein (POINTS® value 3*). A 3/4-cup serving of

Step Away from the Bison...
Total Recall: Keeping Tabs on Your Food
First it was ground beef. Then kid-geared cereals from Kellogg. (The cereals
above in "Spotted..." were NOT included in said recall.) Just recently, select
cans of Chicken of the Sea solid white tuna in water were recalled due to
badly sealed packaging -- FYI, no reports of illness. Now, it's bison meat
being called back for possible E. coli contamination -- at least six cases of
illness have been reported. Scary stuff. If you want to be in the know on
breaking recalls -- food, medicine, cosmetics, and more -- check out
Recalls.gov, where six different government agencies report their most
recent recall info. You can also sign up for email alerts. And if you have an
Android phone, click here to download the new mobile app. We hope
Blackberry and iPhone versions are on their way soon... Stay safe, people!
You Are NOT Free to Chew Aboard the Cabin
It's a good news/bad news kind of day... Besides being the butt of
comedians' jokes for years ("What's the deal with airplane food?"), it turns
out those in-flight meals might be worse than we thought. FDA inspectors
recently found (if you're currently eating, you might wanna stop) bugs,
bacteria, and more awful stuff in many locations where airline entrées are
prepped. Yet another reason to bring your own food. ***Speaking of on-the-
go snacks... Looking for a new one? FiberGourmet -- the company behind a
slew of delicious, super-high-fiber food items we enjoy -- just debuted Light
Wheat Snacks: yummy crackers with half the calories of standard kinds.
PLUS, FG has lowered prices on its pastas and single-serving cake mixes and
is offering free shipping on orders over $75. Time to stock up! ***Did you
know that even the basic raw chicken sold at supermarkets could be full of
unnecessary amounts of salt? Chicken breast meat itself has around 70mg
sodium per 4-oz. serving, but packaged kinds from some brands have up to
FIVE times as much sodium. Do your homework! Read labels and you'll find
stuff that doesn't include all the excess salt -- like Foster Farms'. ***HG
