Hungry Girl Today: 02.12.07
Lost Pounds = Monkey Love!
One Vancouver photographer is trying to lose weight AND do something
incredibly nice for primates. Nicholas Beatty, who tried to lose weight in 2006
but failed, tipped the scales at 285 lbs. right after the holidays. Now the
pressure's on. He's turned his 2007 weight loss goals and new diet plan into a
fundraising effort to raise $25,000 for Oregon Primate Rescue, a non-profit
shelter for former pet and rescued research monkeys. Make your pledges
and find out all about the Pounds for Primates campaign here. Good luck,
Nicholas. Hungry Girl subscribers and monkeys everywhere are counting on
Spotted on Shelves...
All-Bran Crackers, Multi-Grain - We've been hearing a lot about these new
fiber-packed snack crackers. Each 18-cracker portion has 130 calories and
6g of fat. Not terrible, and fiber-lovers will LOVE getting 5 Gs of the stuff in
The Laughing Cow Light Cheese Spread - Ok, we haven't seen these with our
own eyes, but apparently tubs of spreadable Light Swiss Original have been
popping up in stores in Denver and various other cities. If you've seen them,
let us know!
Crystal Light White Tea With Blueberry Flavor - Infused with antioxidant
vitamins A, C and E, this new Crystal Light On The Go flavor has just 5 sugar-
free calories a serving. We're looking forward to sampling it.
MORE Better-For-You Chocolate On The Way...
Never one to be left in the dust, Hershey's is following in the footsteps of
fellow chocolate maker, Mars (the creators of HG fave, CocoaVia). Next up
for the classic candy company are three new products -- whole-bean
chocolate, antioxidant milk chocolate and organic chocolate bars. The whole-
bean stuff will have 40% LESS sugar plus added fiber, the antioxidant milk
chocolate will appeal to milk chocolate fans who want the health benefits of
dark chocolate (sign us up!), and the organic bars are, well, for organic food
fans. Hey, we love our CocoaVia, but you'll never have to twist our arms to
get us to check out other chocolate options with a healthy spin!
Sad movies may make you eat more! A recent study of 38 administrative
assistants found that they ate 36% more popcorn while watching the
tearjerker "Love Story" than they did while watching the funny upbeat
film "Sweet Home Alabama." There's nothing conclusive here, but we think
it's an interesting finding and can even understand the psychology behind it.
Lots of people eat more when they're sad and need a distraction. Just
something to chew on. ***Want to do something good for the Girl Scouts and
our overseas troops? Many GS troops are offering you the chance to buy
cookies to send to our deployed soldiers. Check with your local GS council
for details. You'll get the satisfaction of buying Girl Scout Cookies without all
the nasty calories. Yay! ***Dole is putting healthy vending machines in 15
schools across 4 states. The machines will feature healthy fruit bowls, salads,
sandwiches and wraps. Let's hope they expand this effort soon! ***Heads
up! Vitalicious has FINALLY launched its Canadian site. Give it a look, eh?
That's all we've got. HG out!
