Dreyer's/Edy's Outshine Fruit & Veggie Bars - Vegetables are sneaking into everything these days! These delicious new frozen bars contain at least 25 percent veggies (from juices and purees). Try the Blueberry Medley, Tangerine Carrot, Apple & Greens, Peach Mango Medley, and Strawberry Rhubarb. WOW! Each bar has 60 calories, 0g fat, 0 - 25mg sodium, 14 - 16g carbs, 0 - 1g fiber, 13 - 15g sugars, and 0g protein (PointsPlus® value 1 - 2*). They also come in a multipack of smaller bars with 35 - 40 calories each. At Target and Walmart locations, and supermarkets nationwide.
Dunkin' Donuts Limited Edition Spring & Summer Flavored Coffee - BREAKOUT flavors here! DD's latest seasonal coffees taste AMAZING. In Peach Cobbler, Coconut, and Toasted Almond, these ground coffee beans are virtually calorie-free. Just be careful with the add-ins, of course! Find them in grocery stores from now until September. Did we mention they're INCREDIBLE?!
All Natural Hi I'm Skinny Sticks - Sure, the name is silly. But, OH BOY, these snacks are good. They taste a little like Bugles, and the texture is more substantial than other veggie-stick snacks. There are four Multi-Grain varieties (including our favorite, Tangy BBQ), plus Veggie Tortilla and Sweet Potato. Each 1-oz. serving (about 34 sticks) has 120 - 130 calories, 6 - 7g fat, 90 - 360mg sodium, 16 - 18g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 0 - 5g sugars, and 1 - 2g protein (PointsPlus® value 3 - 4*). Click to locate, or order online. A few flavors even come in 100-calorie bags!
Two Exciting New Salads at Wendy's!
Asian Cashew Chicken Salad - Edamame, spicy roasted cashews, and grilled chicken... YUM! Before dressing, a full-sized salad has 290 calories and 10g fat (PointsPlus® value 7*). The Asian vinaigrette dressing is light, but stick with one packet (not two!) for 50 calories and 1.5g fat. This salad also comes in a half-size portion.
BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad - Mmmm... Fire-roasted corn, bacon, and grilled chicken! Skip that BBQ Ranch dressing (each packet has around 100 calories and 7g fat) BUT keep the Honey BBQ Glaze -- the salad will then have 390 calories and 15g fat (PointsPlus® value 10*). Click for the half-size stats!
Breaking Chews from Natural Products Expo West!
Every year, we take a trip to the Natural Products Expo West in sunny Anaheim, CA, and spot a TON of goodies about to burst onto the market. Here are a few finds that are available right now!
GoodFoods Tableside Greek Yogurt Guacamole - This creamy avocado dip is mild but totally flavorful! Best of all, it comes in portion-controlled containers, each with just 70 calories and 5g fat (PointsPlus® value 2*). Find it at Whole Foods, and dip away!
Beyond Meat Beef-Free Crumble - We've raved about this brand's Chicken-Free Strips, but these crumbles are new and very impressive. In traditional Beefy and southwest-esque Fiesty, each 1/2-cup serving has just 90 calories and 4.5g fat (PointsPlus® value 2*). Track some down...
Phoney Baloney's Coconut Bacon - One hot trend at the Expo: Coconut EVERYTHING. This meatless swap for bacon bits has just 25 calories and 2.3g fat per 2-tbsp. serving (PointsPlus® value 1*). Smoky, salty... definitely unique! Track some down, or order it online.

Snack smart! ***More and more information is coming out on how good fatty fish is for us humans.

Don't miss this Thursday's email for a CRAZY-TASTY salmon foil-pack recipe! ***Finally, we're not sure whether this is a fun idea or a terrible temptress of one… Oscar Mayer has developed an alarm-clock device that will wake you up to the sound AND smell of sizzling bacon.
