The folks at General Mills make a ton of our go-to products, and we're always jazzed to hear about a massive product launch. Well, one is in the works right now! Here are a few guilt-free picks we're extra excited about...

Danger, TGI Friday's diners: The chain has just launched a new $10 Endless Appetizers promotion... but most of the dishes included in the offer have 730 - 1,430 calories and 34 - 87g fat per order! The only options below those ranges: Garlic & Basil Bruschetta (350 calories, 21g fat) and Pan-Seared Pot Stickers (590 calories, 25g fat). If you're dying to take advantage of the offer, stick to those picks. ***We've discovered a sugar-free drink mix so fantastically delicious, it's worth ordering online: Crush Pineapple Singles to Go Drink Mix! Only 10 calories per packet, and it's AMAZING in slushies made with lots of crushed ice and a little canned fruit packed in juice. Snag some ASAP! ***Exercise is always good for you... isn't it? When it comes to staying active in the summer heat, it can be downright dangerous if you're not careful! This article over on Health (an HG partner) has tons of great tips to keep you safe while you sweat. ***Wondering which fast-food restaurants are the top performers in terms of taste? A new Consumer Reports survey found that when it comes to burgers, The Habit Burger Grill edged out cult-faves In-N-Out Burger and Five Guys Burgers and Fries. And Chipotle took the top spot in the burrito category. Check out our TOP ATE Tips for Fast Food Trips and Chipotle Survival Guide, and click for the full survey listings! ***And we've got good news and bad news from the frozen-entrée world. The folks at Healthy Choice announced they're updating their 100% Natural Café Steamers line to feature larger portions of veggies. YAY! But over at Lean Cuisine, they're putting an end to their Delicious Rewards program. You can still earn and redeem points for the rest of 2014, so get on it. And that's all we've got. HG out!
