Hungry Girl Today: 6.3.13
Mmm, Mmm Molokai!
Spotted on Shelves...
Bai5 Molokai Coconut - We're fans of both Bai5 antioxidant-infused beverages and low-calorie coconut drinks, so we're super-excited about this new offering from Bai5! Packed with electrolytes, it's the first seasonal (a.k.a. limited-edition!) variety from the brand... We can't wait to see what's next. Each 8-oz. serving has just 5 calories, 35mg sodium, 1g net carbs, and 1g sugars (PointsPlus® value 0*). FYI: There are 9g carbs in total, but the non-net carbs here have no calories or effect on blood sugar. Look for this in stores, or grab some online!
Krave Black Cherry Barbecue Pork Jerky - Another product we LOVE has a brand-new flavor?! YAY... It's like Christmas in June! Fans of sweet 'n savory jerky need to pick up a pack of this all-natural meat snack. The taste is fantastic, and the texture? SO tender. An ounce has 90 calories, 2.5g fat, 360mg sodium, 7g carbs, 0g fiber, 5g sugars, and 11g protein (PointsPlus® value 2*). Available in most states (click to locate) and online.
Pearls/Early California Black Pitted Olives To Go! - Here's an unusual on-the-go snack! With no messy liquid to drain, these olive packs are pretty darn convenient. Each 4-olive serving has just 15 calories, 1.5g fat, 95mg sodium, and 1g carbs (PointsPlus® value 0*). BTW, there are around 10 olives per pack, and we'd eat them all at once. Find these online and in select stores. (Click for places that carry the brands.)
Win Big & Meet HG... You've Got TWO Chances!
Steve Harvey's Hungry Girl Fan Challenge - Lisa and Steve are teaming up once more for a fun recipe contest! Last time, it was all about sweet treats under 200 calories, inspired by the latest HG book, Hungry Girl 200 Under 200 Just Desserts. This time, Steve's looking to HG fans for their most inspired guilt-free recipes... So get creative! You could find yourself in Chicago for an appearance with Lisa on Steve Harvey in the fall. Send in those recipes!
StarKist Charlie's Salad Stars Contest - Charlie the Tuna and HG want YOU to enter this super-cool contest on Facebook! Just create a salad using your favorite StarKist tuna pouch, take a picture of your creation with the pouch, and send it in. One grand-prize winner will get a trip to Los Angeles to visit Hungryland (the brand-spanking-new HG HQ) and have lunch with Lisa! (Contest ends 6/18/13. See official rules for details.)

Salads, Salads, Everywhere! (New Fast Finds)
Burger King BBQ Chicken Salad - Yum! When ordered topped with Tendergrill chicken (not the fried Tendercrisp!), this fresh new salad has 300 calories and 14g fat (PointsPlus® value 8*). These numbers DON'T include the honey mustard dressing, which would add 220 calories and 18g fat. Luckily, the salad already comes with BBQ sauce, so you could skip the dressing entirely and still have a stellar meal!
Starbucks Zesty Chicken & Black Bean Salad Bowl - Talk about unique! In addition to the chicken 'n beans, this bowl packs roasted corn, jicama, feta, quinoa, a mild chili vinaigrette, and more. All that for 360 calories and 15g fat (PointsPlus® value 9*). Impressive!
Wendy's Berry Almond Chicken Salad - It's baaaack! We're thrilled to see this DELICIOUS limited-time-only salad has returned for the summer. A full-sized salad with fat-free raspberry vinaigrette has 460 calories and 16g fat (PointsPlus® value 12*). The dressing accounts for 100 of those calories, but that's for TWO packets. Use just one packet if you want to slim down the stats!
We love starting The Buzz with good news... EVOL Foods are coming to Target! If you're new to the world of EVOL, we recommend the Teriyaki Chicken Bowl (260 calories, 3g fat, PointsPlus® value 6*). And we're pretty excited to try the new Gluten Free Chicken Burrito + Guacamole (260 calories, 7g fat, PointsPlus® value 7*). Pssst... EVOL is LOVE spelled backward! ***The "health halo" strikes again… A study recently published in the International Journal of Obesity found that subjects served themselves larger portions of items marked as healthier than they did standard foods and drinks. The subjects also erroneously guessed that the healthier products had fewer calories. Remember to read nutrition panels (stats and serving sizes!), and don't judge a food solely by its health claims. Just because a food is all-natural, reduced-fat, gluten-free, etc., doesn't mean it's automatically a good choice if you're watching your weight. It truly is case by case. ***Wanna counteract the effects of junk food on your brain? Omega-3s, like the ones found in fish oil, could help! Data from 185 research papers suggests that while fish oils don't have a direct impact on weight loss, they might slow the ability of refined sugars and saturated fats to influence the part of the brain that controls food intake. Feed your head... ***Finally, fans of Iron Chef America can have their own Kitchen Stadium moment... Well, sort of. The new Iron Chef America À La Cuisine frozen meal kits allow you to dish out a dinner for four in about 15 minutes. Each complete serving of Beef Mongolian, Butter Chicken, Sesame Beef, or Spicy Szechuan Chicken has 225 - 295 calories and 1 - 4g fat (PointsPlus® value 6 - 7*). Just don't add too much oil while cooking, or those stats will soar. And that's all we've got. HG out!
