Hungry Girl Today: 01.03.11
Spotted on Shelves...
Thomas' Cinnamon Raisin Bagel Thins - Now THIS is the kind of item to kick off a new year! Each sweet 'n slim bagel has 110 calories, 1g fat, 160mg sodium, 25g carbs, 5g fiber, 6g sugars, and 4g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). We can't wait to smear these things with fat-free cream cheese...

HG Bitty Bites!
The Hungry Girl TV Show Debuts This Week!
In case you've been under a rock (or just not reading your HG emails), Hungry Girl premieres on Cooking Channel THIS SATURDAY (1/8/11), at 4pm ET/1pm PT! Tune in for guilt-free tips, restaurant-ordering tricks, Lisa (HG herself!) cooking in the kitchen, and all kinds of fun. The first episode is all about... PIZZA! Do NOT miss it. And don't miss tomorrow's email for a sneak peek at the episode!
Not One, But TWO New Books Are on the Way!
This spring, we're bringing you a MASSIVE cookbook PACKED with amazing meals... Hungry Girl 300 Under 300: 300 Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Dishes Under 300 Calories. AHHH! Then in the fall, the long-anticipated, oft-requested, sleek and sensational ultimate supermarket guide will arrive!!! YES, it's coming, people! Could we BE more excited? No... we could not!
Site Makeover: EZ Print Recipes, Enhanced Search Feature & More!
In the past month or so, you might have noticed a few changes around the Hungry Girl site. In case you haven't (we understand -- December was a blur), look for these awesome changes... There's a new "print" button for easy, printer-friendly recipes! We have a snazzy new layout. (Have you SEEN the beauteous homepage?!) New Weight Watchers PointsPlus® values for recipes have infiltrated our archives and book site. And our search function is better than ever. (Find the search box in the upper right corner of the homepage.) Yay!
Mystery Noodles on the Way!
Low-calorie-noodle lovers, listen up! A WHOLE NEW SHAPE of Tofu Shirataki noodles is coming soon... and we can't tell you what it is but it rhymes with flackaroni! ***Uh oh. A recently published study suggests that eating lunch in front of the computer could lead people to eat more later in the day than if they were eating undistracted. Computer-bound subjects had a fuzzier memory of what and how much they ate for lunch; this worries us, what with our hard-working, chewing-while-typing ways... ***Time for some good news (for us ladies, at least). New research from Northwestern University shows that while regular exercise keeps weight gain to a minimum in aging men AND women, the ladies are likely to gain less over the years. Active females averaged 13 fewer pounds of weight gain compared to not-so-active women, while the male exercisers gained 6 fewer pounds than low-activity guys. Get moving, everybody! ***Good news/bad news: Wendy's has FINALLY launched its breakfast menu (YAY!), but most of the items in the lineup have somewhat scary stats (BOO!). The bright spots on the menu are the Fresh Seasonal Fruit (grapes, apples, and strawberries or pineapple!) and the Good-to-Go Oatmeal Bar (baked fresh and served warm, for a reasonable 280 calories). The Mornin' Melt Panini? Fuhgeddaboudit. ***And finally, a story that actually kind of confuses us. A new zero-calorie candy, already sold in Brazil and expected to branch out, allegedly improves health, increases energy levels, slows aging, and gives you a better complexion... and contains no fat, preservatives, sugar, or sodium. Um, beauty candy? We don't really believe it; but if it turns out the stuff works AND won't kill us, we might buy stock. That's all we've got. HG out!

CHEW ON THIS:
Today, January 3rd, is National Chocolate-Filled Cherry Day! It sounds a bit difficult to actually fill a cherry with chocolate, so we'll be sipping some Cherry Bomb Iced Mochas instead!
