Hungry Girl Today: 7.19.10
Spotted on Shelves (Exclusive Elusive Edition!)...
Duke's New York Roadhouse Sauce - BBQ sauce lovers, grab a notepad. You
NEED to remember the name of this stuff. It's AMAZING. (Yes, NYC has good
BBQ; get over it.) A 2-tbsp. serving of the original or Hot-N-Spicy has just 35
calories, 250mg sodium, 8g carbs, and 6g sugars (POINTS® value 1*).
Order some, people!
Gourmet Basics Smart Fries - Friends, these are super-fantastic, light 'n
crunchy air-popped potato snacks. Get 'em in Vintage Cheddar, Honey BBQ,
Jalapeño Heat, Honey Mustard & Onion, Classic Sea Salt, and/or Vinegar
Splash. A 1-oz. serving has 110 calories, 1.5 - 2g fat, 330 - 410mg sodium,
22 - 23g carbs, <1g fiber, 0 - <1g sugars, and 1g protein
2*). They're currently sold only in select stores in NYC, but you can order
them online (in single-serving pouches!)... or take a road trip to the Big
Apple and pick up some Duke's sauce while you're there!
Boca Java Coffee - Whatever the weather, we need java in our bocas! If
you're on the lookout for fun flavored beans -- which are virtually calorie-
free -- peruse this lineup. Options include Chocolate Cherry Celebration
(Mmmm), Bananas Foster Float (WOW!), and even Maple Bacon Morning
(ACK!). Order online and try to contain your excitement until the coffee
arrives. (Pssst... There's a Coffee of the Month club! And this stuff ROCKS
iced! OK, bye.)
The Food World Gets App Happy (Mobile Apps, not Meal Starters)!
There's an app for pretty much everything these days -- check out a few new
ones we've been eyeing...
Weber's On the Grill - No better time to download this one. For the novice
griller, there's a guide with basics (lighting the grill, safety, etc.) and a guide
with cook times for various food items. Watch a celeb chef in action, view
recipes, assemble a grocery list... There's even a timer. Hot stuff!
FitClick Mobile - If you're looking for something to help you with your weight-
loss/weight-management endeavors, check this out. Create your own diet
plan; log your meals, snacks, AND exercise (the built-in database will track
your calories); view fitness demos; and more. So helpful!
GoodGuide - Sure, we all want groceries that are healthy and good for the
environment... but it's REALLY hard to know what to get! With this app, you
can simply scan product barcodes at the store -- using your phone's camera
feature -- and get instant ratings on health, social responsibility, and
environmental impact, as well as an overall GoodGuide rating. That's a load
off our minds...
Hey, Bagel! Have You Lost Weight?
Restaurant Trend Alert: Flat Sandwich Buns!
Now that calorie counting is in vogue and supermarket shelves are
overflowing with 100-calorie-or-so flat rolls (Sandwich Thins, Deli Flats, Bagel
Thins, etc.), slim sandwiches are officially IN. And restaurant chains are
taking notice. Einstein Bros/Noah's New York Bagels recently launched Bagel
Thin Sandwiches, which look GREAT. The Tuna Thin and Turkey Thin each
have just 250 calories and 6 - 9g fat! (FYI, the Thins themselves have 120
calories each.) And those Egg White Flatbread Sandwiches at Dunkin'
Donuts? They're now sporting a sleek round style and appear to have less
bread and more filling. Each one has 290 - 330 calories and 8 - 12g fat. (Yup,
the stats increased slightly; but at least it's due to the extra good stuff.)
Hmmm... Between these good 'wiches and Burger King's Tendergrill Chicken
Sandwich with its new lower-calorie ciabatta bun, the world of grab 'n go food
is looking better and better! Skinny rolls = our BFF.
Been itching to try the new McDonald's Real Fruit Smoothies? Consider this
your calamine lotion. (Or don't. Eww.) Participating McD's locations are giving
out FREE SAMPLES of the Wild Berry and Strawberry Banana smoothies this
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (7/22 - 7/24). FYI, a full-sized 12-oz. drink
has 210 calories, 0.5g fat, and 2 - 3g fiber. Not bad! And click here for a $1-
off coupon that's good 'til mid-August. ***Have you heard about the "pizza
diet" guy? Matt McClellan just finished biking up the East Coast promoting
pizza as a diet food (um, BTW, he owns a pizzeria), after reportedly losing
nearly 25 pounds in 30 days eating nothing but pizza. P.S. His month of
weight loss also included an increase in activity, for a total of one hour of
exercise every day... but yeah, SURE, it was the pizza that did it. PEOPLE!
It's all about calories in versus calories burned. ***Looks like 2010 truly is
the year of the sandwich. The latest? The Candwich. That's right. A sandwich
that comes in a can. Flavors include two PB&J combos (one strawberry; one
grape) as well as BBQ chicken. It's all just so wrong... especially the part of
the label that reads, "Candy Surprise Inside." Yeesh... ***We like our
portable peanut butter in portion-controlled pouches (NOT canned
sandwiches!), so we're THRILLED that Justin's Nut Butter is now available at
SuperTarget locations across the country, in jars and packets. Go, Justin!
That's all we've got. HG out!
