Fiber -- It Still Rocks!
Clearly, fiber is the hippest and trendiest thing in the world of food these
days. And it seems like every day there's SOME new reason to love it. The
latest news, from a study conducted in the UK, is that eating fiber-rich foods
can actually help lower your risk of developing breast cancer. The new study
suggests that pre-menopausal women who got at least 30 grams of fiber per
day actually reduced their breast cancer risk by HALF. The good news for us
is that so many foods are packed with fiber these days (click here for some
of HG's faves). Our latest oddball fiber-packed discovery? FIBER-FILLED
soda! Renew Nutrisoda contains one full gram of dietary fiber per serving.

New 100-Calorie Snack Alert!
From the wonderful world of Nabisco, the company that put 100-calorie
snacks on the map (back in 2004)...100 Calorie Packs versions of chewy
granola bars! Now these bars aren't just chewy. And they're not just
granola-licious. They actually come flavored like all of your favorite Nabisco
cookies -- Oreo, Nutter Butter and Chips Ahoy! We've sunk our teeth into
ALL THREE of these bars, and the early reviews are in. The best of the
bunch, BY FAR, are the Chips Ahoy! flavored ones. Next, the Nutter Butter.
And sadly, the Oreo ones come in a distant third (Oreo lovers should go for
the 100 Calorie Packs Oreo Thin Crisps instead). Enjoy!
Spotted on Shelves...
Bumble Bee Prime Fillet Chicken Breast - Chicken in a bag? We were
skeptical at first, but after trying these low-fat, skinless, boneless breasts
have just 110-170 calories each, we were sold. They're GREAT
Kellogg's All-Bran Yogurt Bites - All-Bran flakes and sweet, yogurty nuggets
make this new cereal taste good. 10 grams of fiber gives you an excuse to
forgive the 190-calorie-per-serving price tag that comes with it.
Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Yogurt Blends - To be honest, we've been so
busy obsessing over their Slow Churned American Idol Take the Cake ice
cream (VOTE NOW, VOTE OFTEN!), we've completely ignored this new line of
fro yo. It comes in flavors like Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Caramel Praline
Crunch and Black Cherry Vanilla Swirl, though, so we NEED to try this stuff
Looking for a way to slim down your smoothie? Smoothie King now offers
you a chance to MAKE IT SKINNY! Order yours that way and they'll leave out
the turbinado (raw cane sugar), and your 20 oz. beverage will have 100
fewer calories and 23 fewer carbs. Check out their site for complete
nutritional info. ***If you loooove Amy's foods (you know, our pals who
make all that awesome vegetarian stuff in your freezer and pantry!), then
check out their brand-new diet plan. Their site has a two-week plan, a
shopping list and more...It's worth a peek! ***Crisco is joining the ranks of
trans fats ditchers. As of now, all of their shortening products are trans fat
free. Seems like anything that contains trans fats just might end up a
collectible that fetches big bucks on eBay (or big BUGS in your pantry if you
forget to sell it). That's all we've got. HG out!
CHEW ON THIS:
