Hungry Girl Today: 4.21.14


Spotted on Shelves...

Wheat Thins Popped - These are definitely not your mother's Wheat Thins. Made with whole-grain wheat, potatoes, and rice, the new crisps are popped for a light 'n crispy snack. In Sea Salt, Spicy Cheddar, and Sour Cream & Onion, each generous serving (26 - 27 chips) has 120 - 130 calories, 3g fat, 230 - 290mg sodium, 23g carbs, 2g fiber, 2g sugars, and 2g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). They're just now hitting store shelves, so if you see them, snag 'em!

DREAM Blends Almond, Cashew & Hazelnut Drink in Original Unsweetened - Talk about unique... This dairy-free, three-nut beverage sounds, well, dreamy! Each cup has 50 calories, 2.5g fat, 125mg sodium, 5g carbs, 3g fiber, <1g sugars, and <1g protein (PointsPlus® value 1*). Plus, it's packed with bonus antioxidants and vitamins. WOW. Look for it at health-food stores and in the natural-food section of the supermarket, or order online.

Cap'n Crunch Cinnamon Roll Crunch and Sprinkled Donut Crunch - Your childhood favorite has a whole new spin, inspired by breakfast pastries! We're intrigued and excited by these sweet-'n-spiced and donut-style options. Each serving (3/4 - 1 cup) has 110 calories, 1 - 1.5g fat, 170 - 200mg sodium, 23 - 25g carbs, <1 - 1g fiber, 12 - 13g sugars, and 1g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). The Cinnamon Roll Crunch can be found at select grocers, and the Sprinkled Donut Crunch is available at Walmart.

The Latest Key to Weight Loss? Ditch Your Toxic Friends!
It's an old joke to say you lose about 150 pounds by getting out of a bad relationship, but wait! A recent study found that people who maintained negative relationships tended to put on more belly weight over a 10-year period than those who didn't. Reportedly, while there was some expected age-related weight gain across the board, those with stressful people in their lives put on even more pounds than those without them. So while we wouldn't suggest cutting ties with every family member who gets on your nerves, you might want to reevaluate any truly destructive relationship. (Critical frenemies and lousy significant others? You're on notice.) Then make like Elsa in Frozen, and let it go... It could help your mind and your body!

Yesterday, April 20th, was both Easter AND Lima Bean Respect Day. So we're gonna say that today is Jelly Bean Respect Day. Each Jelly Belly jelly bean has 4 calories -- eat 25 beans for about 100 calories! We can respect that...
