Hungry Girl Today: 4.7.14
Spotted on Shelves...
Breyers Gelato Indulgences - These schmancy frozen treats are a touch higher in stats than we typically go for, but we're writing about them because they're THAT special. We tried the Tiramisu and Vanilla Caramel (amazing), and can only bet the Raspberry Cheesecake and Triple Chocolate are great as well. A 1/2-cup serving has 160 - 170 calories, 5 - 7g fat, 45 - 80mg sodium, 23 - 28g carbs, 0 - 1g fiber, 17 - 22g sugars, and 3g protein (PointsPlus® value 4 - 5*).
New Flavors! Luna Protein Bars - We love snacks that are high in protein and convenient, and the latest bars from Luna meet both criteria... plus, they're gluten-free. In Lemon Vanilla (sweet 'n citrusy) and Chocolate Coconut Almond (hello, Almond Joy fans), each bar has 170 - 180 calories, 4.5 - 7g fat, 140 - 160mg sodium, 21g carbs, 3g fiber, 12 - 15g sugars, and 12g protein (PointsPlus® value 4 - 5*). Find 'em at Whole Foods, Target, Walmart, and other locations.
Amy's Light & Lean Meatless Swedish Meatballs - Get ready to stick a fork into a new light entrée from Amy's. Complete with pasta, veggies, and a creamy sauce, this meatball bowl has a slim 260 calories, 5g fat, 500mg sodium, 42g carbs, 3g fiber, 4g sugars, and 12g protein (PointsPlus® value 7*). To the freezer aisle...
On-the-Go Morning Menu News: Finds and Free Coffee!
Taco Bell Egg and Cheese A.M. Grilled Taco: While most of the items on the Bell's new b-fast menu are problematic, this one -- which looks like a cross between a soft taco and a quesadilla -- is totally reasonable in the stats department: 170 calories and 9g fat (PointsPlus® value 5*). If you don't see the meat-free taco on the b-fast menu, just request it. P.S. Those A.M. Crunchwraps are bad news, with 650 - 710 calories a pop.
Dunkin' Donuts Ice-Cream-Flavored Coffee Drinks: These new beverages sound like they could be diet disasters, but they're not bad, as long as you order right. Get a small iced or hot coffee in Cookie Dough Swirl, Butter Pecan Swirl (a returning favorite), or Jamoca Almond Fudge Swirl for 110 - 120 calories (PointsPlus® value 3*). They're already sweet and slightly creamy, so no need to add sweetener or milk. Don't live near a DD location, or prefer a calorie-free dessert-coffee fix? Check out DD's packaged seasonal flavors... So good!
Free Coffee at McDonald's Through April 13th: Not to be outdone, participating McD's locations are giving out free small cups of McCafé coffee during the usual b-fast hours. We'll be pairing our freebies with Egg White Delight McMuffins and Fruit 'N Yogurt Parfaits! Woohoo!
It's official... The Hungry Girl Diet is a #1 New York Times Best Seller! Our brand-new diet book debuted in the top spot... YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!! Huge thanks to everyone who bought a copy, and if you haven't yet, grab one ASAP! This diet's the ultimate way to drop pounds, easily and deliciously! ***Need reasons to move more? Turns out that inactivity has a myriad of health risks... More than you might think. According to our pals and partners at About.com, sitting still can raise your risk of diabetes, low metabolism, heart disease, and mortality. Click for more info on the research behind these findings, plus smart and simple tips to help you break the habit of a sedentary lifestyle. ***This one's interesting... While on-the-go snacks are always in high demand, a new report states that 80 percent of snacks are actually being eaten at home. Sounds like a perfectly good reason to make these Chinese Chicken Lettuce Cups or BBQ Zucchini Skins... under 100 calories per snack! ***You may soon be tempted to swap your morning java for tea. But not just any tea -- Oprah Chai Tea! Developed by Oprah Winfrey (like there's another Oprah) with Teavana, the tea will soon be sold at Starbucks and Teavana locations. YOU get a chai! And YOU get a chai! Everybody gets a chai! ***Finally, is chewing gum no longer cool? Sales of gum have gone down 11 percent in the last 4 years. Come to think of it, we have been chewing less gum lately here at the HG HQ... Guess we're not alone. And that's all we've got. HG out!
