Johnsonville Flame Grilled Chicken Breast

Here's something to add to your timesaving meal-prep arsenal! Marinated and fully cooked, this poultry comes in five delicious flavors: Garlic & Herb, Teriyaki Glazed, Black Pepper & Sea Salt, Southwestern Seasoned, and Honey Mustard Glazed (the HG favorite). Create an easy meal around your flavor of choice! Chopped Southwestern Seasoned chicken in taco shells? Sliced Garlic & Herb chicken over a salad? Get creative! In supermarkets nationwide.

Stubb's Marinades

If you actually have some time to prep your protein yourself, we recommend these low-calorie marinades! Choose from Beef (Soy, Garlic & Red Pepper), Chicken (Citrus & Onion), Pork (Chiles, Lime & Ginger), and Texas Steakhouse (Ancho Chile & Garlic). They're made by the sauce experts at Stubb's, so you know they're good. Plus, grill season is coming, and it's best to be prepared...

Thindulgent Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Bark

Before you balk at the points value, know this: The serving size for these tasty chocolate treats is much larger than you need for a single snack session. Just half of that (a few pieces) will obliterate a chocolate craving! In Milk Chocolate: S'mores, Caramel Pretzel, and Cashew Toffee (the best!), and in Dark Chocolate: Almond Sea Salt. This stuff rocks hard! Available at Bed Bath & Beyond, Fairway Market, Morton Williams, Hy-vee, Albertsons/Safeway, and more.

Buzzworthy: Clear Coffee is for real!

What the what?! Apparently, a java company has managed to produce coffee that's transparent rather than the usual murky brown. And the bottled drink is made without sugar, artificial flavors, or preservatives. We love the idea of coffee that won't stain our teeth, but we can't help but wonder how it tastes! Would you drink clear coffee? Sound off on Facebook!

Is Whole Foods truly about to drop its prices?

If you've ever complained about the high prices at Whole Foods Market, get this: The natural-food retailer is reportedly looking to offer more affordable goods, but without losing their connection to local food companies. Word is that investors are pushing for the chain to run more like a big-box store, but small brands are concerned they won't be able to get their products on shelves. Time will tell...

And that's all we've got. 'Til next time… Chew the right thing!
