Fast-Food Breakfast Just Got Better!
Starbucks Introduces Reduced-Fat Turkey Bacon Breakfast Sandwich - While most of the new breakfast sandwiches on the menu have 400+ calories and more fat than we'd like, this egg-white melt has a slim 230 calories and 6g fat (PointsPlus® value 6*). Score! And let's not forget about the classic Spinach & Feta Breakfast Wrap...
Dunkin' Donuts Unveils Limited-Time Eggs Benedict Breakfast Sandwich - With an egg patty, Black Forest ham, and a Hollandaise-like spread, this new English muffin b-fast has a completely reasonable 300 calories and 9g fat (PointsPlus® value 7*). Sadly, there are STILL no Dunkin' Donuts locations near us in California. If you're one of the lucky ones, hit your local DD stat!
McDonald's Considers Extending B'fast Hours - Wouldn't it be great if one could grab an Egg White Delight McMuffin as a midday mini meal? Yuh-huh! Which is why we're very happy to hear McD's is considering selling breakfast items after 10:30 a.m. -- anyone who's ever rolled up at 10:45 looking for breakfast will surely appreciate this too! Hope it comes to fruition...

And remember to check out the HG tour dates while you're at it! ***In kiddie meal news, Burger King has swapped out its original French fries for the lower-fat Satisfries. Not a bad idea, but the apple slices are still your best (albeit slightly boring) bet. Bring back the Apple Fries, BK! ***Everyone's looking for that secret weapon in the weight-loss battle, and a new study suggests that weapon could be… seaweed! Researchers found that certain varieties of the ocean algae contain an element that blocks fat absorption and digestion. We're hoping they discover this also applies to those crunchy seaweed snacks we love! ***And after more than two decades, the slogan "Got Milk?" is being retired. The new tagline is "Milk Life," which is meant to emphasize milk's nutritional benefits. Think it'll catch on? That's all we've got... HG out!
