Guilt-Free On The Go...

Good news for the calorie-conscious (and the very busy).  The demand for "quick and easy" food options is continuing to grow, and so is the American public's desire for healthier snack food.  That's why more and more convenience stores are introducing better-for-you options, like pre-packaged salads and reduced calorie sandwiches.  You'll likely even find small cups of fruits & veggies that fit perfectly in your car's cup holders (you can't say that about a Big Gulp!).  Embrace the concept -- when in need of a roadside snack, opt for healthy items and ditch the chips &  candy...we need to make sure the good stuff stays on the shelves!  For more convenience store tips, check out HG's cheat sheet.
Good Karma...For You & Your Pet!

Don't buy your pooch junk food this holiday (enough with the Snausages already!).  Instead, dress your pet up in STYLE with colorful collars and/or leashes from SOCOCO (Socially Conscious Companion). Their "Good Karma" line is stylish 'n comfy, and a portion of the proceeds benefit the Baphumelele Children's Home in South Africa.  Check out for fun, socially conscious gift ideas for friends and pets!

The Buzz...

Natural edible food coatings containing sticky sugars, oils and fats may help keep deadly E. coli bacteria away from fresh produce.  But who wants to add a sweet fatty layer to their fruits & veggies?!  Yikes!***Arby's is joining the likes of Taco Bell, KFC and Wendy's by cutting trans fats from popular menu items, and by May of 2007, the chain promises that 75% of their menu will be trans-fat-free.  Yay!  ***With cold & flu season here, you should know that experts say working out too much when you're coming down with a cold may be a bad idea.  While moderate exercise is ok, some experts insist that heart-pumping workouts can actually prolong your illness.  So if you're feeling under the weather, listen to your body and take it easy with the exercise. ***Ohhhh... do NOT miss a chance to get a sneak-chew of the all-new HG-developed FUDGY PEANUT BUTTER CHIP VitaTops.  On sale tomorrow.  That's all we've got.  HG out!

***Thanks so much to everyone who emailed condolences about the loss of my cat, Mischief.  Your heartfelt messages and acts of kindness mean so much to me.  -- Lisa
