Friendly Bacteria ROCKS!
Cool New Stuff
Kashi Vive Probiotic Digestive Wellness Cereal, Toasted Graham & Vanilla - Don't let the name scare you, this crunchy and super-delicious cereal (we LOVE it!) is packed with phytonutrients, probiotics ("friendly" bacteria), calcium and vitamin D and it contains a whopping 12g of fiber per serving.
Minute Maid Fruit Falls - Water with a splash of real fruit juice, this 5-calorie beverage is meant for kids, but we can't wait to get our hands on it (it even comes in a cool see-thru pouch).
100 Calorie Mini Bites, Sun Chips - The latest in this line of controlled-portion crunchy snacks from Frito-Lay (FYI, you get approximately 16 chips in each bag).
If you REALLY love bananas (like in an almost weird way), you may enjoy this funky banana cell phone cover. We're not sure why we included this in The Buzz, because it has nothing to do with dieting (though it is calorie-free), and absolutely no one except for us is "buzzing" about it. We just think it's cute. ***Oh, we finally had the chance to try Pepsi Jazz - the new zero-cal sodas in berry/cream flavors. Yikes. We wanted to love 'em, but they really don't taste very good. We predict a very short life for these fizzy disasters, so get your soon-to-be collectible bottles of it now. ***Our friends at the CSPI (Center for Science in the Public Interest) are going after the FDA. Seems they think the organization should be doing a better job of cracking down on companies whose labels include misleading or inaccurate info, and we wholeheartedly agree. Click here for details. That's all we've got. HG out!
CHEW ON THIS: Today, August 7th, is National Raspberries 'n Cream Day. Raspberries have an impressive 8g of fiber per cup, so squirt a bit of Fat Free Reddi-Wip on some and have a party!
