Starbucks: Thanks a Latte!
This is a big week, people! Tomorrow, April 4th, Starbucks will launch their new Tazo Matcha Green Tea Latte. And not only has it been getting rave reviews from insiders who have gotten sneak sips of the stuff, but it's also the lowest calorie latte the chain offers. A short version made with nonfat milk contains just 70 calories and no fat. An iced one has just 80 calories. Want to make yours even lower? Have your friendly neighborhood barista leave out the 1/2 pump of melon syrup. You'll save calories and get more of the green tea flavor. FYI, this new green tea bev contains the same amount of antioxidants as a similarly sized glass of OJ. Tea-rific!
Buy Me Some Grilled Shrimp & Cracker Jack...
When you think of baseball food you think of peanuts...popcorn...hot dogs...pretzels. On opening day ALONE, each stadium can expect to serve up a minimum of 10,000 hot dogs, 2,500 bags of peanuts, and 1,800 gallons of soda. But Aramark, the food and facility managers behind your favorite stadiums are adding some gourmet foods to their offerings this year. Keep an eye out for shrimp dishes, mahi mahi, beef filets and salmon to show up at a baseball game near you. FYI, some stadiums are already offering healthier options -- Fenway Park serves up tofu burgers, veggie dogs and fruit cups, while various other stadiums are serving baked potatoes, grilled chicken breast and more. We STILL say bringing your own grub to baseball games is probably your best bet, but it's nice to know that healthier food is now an option.
Healther Fare: Homerun or Foul Ball?
Spritz it up, Spritzy!
New & Hot!
Here's what people are talking about...
Wishbone Salad Spritzers - Why drown your poor, defenseless salad in goopy dressing? Wishbone's new Salad Spritzers in Balsamic Breeze Vinaigrette, Italian Vinaigrette and Red Wine Vinaigrette have 10 calories and 1g of fat for 10 sprays (that's just 1 calorie per spray, in case math isn't your thing).
Folger's Simply Smooth Coffee - Does coffee give you tummy "issues"? Be on the lookout for the first-ever nationally available stomach-friendly coffee. Simply Smooth will be available this month in regular and decaf.
Weight Watchers Snack Cakes, Lemon Cake w/Lemon Icing - These things aren't large by any stretch of the imagination, but if you want a sweet, cakey, lemony fix for one point, check out WW's 80 calorie, 2.5g fat, 2g fiber fluffsters.
We had an AWESOME time chewin' it up at ExpoWest last month.
