Green Giant Kid-Friendly Veggies - Little ones do NOT eat enough
vegetables. And Green Giant is trying to change that. This month, packages
for SIX varieties of frozen and canned Green Giant veggies will feature
cartoon characters from the TV shows SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the
Explorer, and Go Diego, Go! The frozen veggies come in butter sauce and
include collectible stickers (thankfully, those aren't covered in butter!), and
all the veggie products are low in fat and have just 20 - 80 calories per
serving. KIDS, SHMIDS -- we want these, too!!!!
Yoplait Yo-Plus Yogurt - 110 calories, 1.5g fat and 3g fiber (POINTS® value
2*) in each tasty cup. This stuff is packed with probiotics and prebiotics to
help keep your digestive system in check, and it comes in cherry, peach,
vanilla and strawberry. Want more info about those fancy biotics and what
they do? Click here!
100-Calorie Sightings - HG subscribers have spotted 100-calorie packs of
M&Ms, Twix bars, 3 Musketeers bars, and Blue Diamond Almonds. Some
people enjoy celebrity sightings -- we live for 100-calorie pack sightings. (We
are what we are!) SEND YOUR SIGHTINGS TO US... It makes us happy!
Sometimes we read things other than nutrition labels. Here's what's HG-
worthy this week...
The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth - Acclaimed nutritionist Jonny Bowden
penned this book. It's packed with info (and glossy pics) of good-for-you
foods, and it ROCKS. It actually reminds us of our favorite food bible (we
LIVE for this one), The World's Healthiest Foods -- and if you ask us, there
should be room in your library for BOTH.
The Dorm Room Diet Planner - Dr. Oz (Oprah's BFF) has a daughter named
Daphne, and she's written some super-fantastic books. This latest one is a
companion book to her first book, The Dorm Room Diet. It features tips,
checklists, and room to track your progress... plus it comes with a workout
DVD! Both of these books are must-haves for college students -- so spread
the word if you know anyone who's currently away at school.

not always easy to find all of their stuff at supermarkets), you'll get FREE

Bargain Alert! We spied these useful and adorable MESÜ portion control
bowls over at Delight.com (a site that sells all kinds of cute stuff), and in the
spirit of keeping portions and calories in check, our pals over at Delight are
giving HGers a 15% discount on these bowls (and everything else on the
site) until the end of September. Just use code HUNGRYDELIGHT to get your
We LOOOVE almonds, so we hope the following is true. A study published in
the British Journal of Nutrition says all kinds of INSANELY good things about
almonds -- like how people who eat them regularly weigh less than people
who don't, and how the fiber in them may actually block some of the fat and
calories they contain. We kid you not. It's worth reading about, so click here.
***Speaking of nuts, a seemingly kooky yet reputable study is claiming that
the color of your tablecloth can actually affect how much you eat. It says
bright yellow and orange cloths make you eat MORE, while brown, navy and
dark green ones cause you to eat less. We say how much you eat likely has
more to do with how good the food is than the hue of your table skirt ("table
skirt"... hee-hee!) -- but who knows?! ***Wanna win a trip to have dinner
with the world's STEAMIEST chef? Or how about a trip to Miami for a private
cooking class and a VIP gourmet dinner? Check out the Glad Steamiest Chef
Sweepstakes ASAP for all that and more. Cool stuff! ***Tired of confusing
nutrition labels? Next month Kellogg's will roll out their new "Nutrition at a
Glance" labels on their ready-to-eat cereals. The new packages will feature
easy-to-read nutritional highlights (like calories, fat and sugar) right on the
front of the box. We haven't seen 'em up close yet, but Tony the Tiger
says, "They're GRRREEEEEEATTTTT!" And, on that incredibly corny note, we
are happy to report... that's all we've got. HG out!
