Angel Hair Tofu Shirataki Alert!!!
Whoa! Big news, people. In just a few short weeks, House Foods, the people who brought us Tofu Shirataki in Fettuccine and Spaghetti shapes, will officially unveil their brand-new (and quite possibly their GREATEST) tofu noodle shape! If you read the title of this story (and we assume you did because you NEVER skim HG, right?), you know IT'S ANGEL HAIR!!! We've tried it, and we're in love. Why? Because it's thinner than the other shapes, and therefore it tastes even more like REGULAR pasta. Of course it has the same insane stats (the whole 2-serving bag has 40 calories, 1g fat and 4g fiber -- POINTS® value 0*). Only a select few stores have Angel Hair Tofu Shirataki right now, but by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, it'll be available pretty much EVERYWHERE the other Tofu Shirataki shapes are sold. Now THAT'S something to be thankful for! (Pssst... do NOT miss our official GUILT-FREE PASTA FOOD FIGHT featuring Tofu Shirataki noodles and a competitor -- this Thursday!)

SPOTTED ON SHELVES
General Foods International On The Go Coffee House Drink Mixes - These handy, 60-calorie packets with 3 - 3.5g fat each (POINTS® value 1*) fit right in your purse and come in Vanilla Latte, Hazelnut Cappuccino, and Café Mocha. They turn a boring cup of water into a creamy coffee CLASSIC instantly, complete with FOAM. Yum!
Healthy Choice Café Steamers - There are literally a DOZEN varieties of these steamable frozen meals in stores now -- everything from Cajun Style Chicken & Shrimp to Grilled Whiskey Steak. For the most part, each of these has 220 - 300 calories, 3 - 8g fat, and 3 - 5g fiber (POINTS® value 4 - 6*) -- only the General Tso's Spicy Chicken has higher stats. Click here to see all the varieties and the full nutritional info (including the specific POINTS® values for each!).
Handi-Snacks Sugar Free Pudding - In Chocolate, Vanilla, and Creamy Caramel, these 45 - 50 calorie, 1g of fat pudding cups (each with a POINTS® value of 1*) just may give the Jell-O ones a run for their money, due to their low calorie count (10 - 15 fewer cals than the Jell-O Sugar Free Pudding Snacks). Find these in the shelf-stable pudding section (usually near the cake mixes and baking stuff).
Cute vitamin alert! If you like your vitamins cartoony and chewable (we do!), check out this line from St. Hill Pharmaceutical featuring The Simpsons. The sugar-free chewable vitamins come in several flavors and varieties -- there's the standard daily multivitamin formula in Grape, Orange and Cherry-Berry; Extra C Formula in Strawberry; and Berry Squirts Omega 3 Formula (which we assume is berry-flavored!). There's also the Germ Defense Effervescent Health Formula ones, which are sugar-free fizzy tablets that you drop into water, in Fruit Punch. And coming soon are the Calcium Formula in Chocolate, the Iron Formula, and Sugar Free Multivitamin Strips (they dissolve on your tongue) in Watermelon. This line may be geared toward the kiddies, but we still think it's eeeexcellent…***A recently published study shows that the rate at which your body burns fat could be elevated if you break up your long cardio sessions. The researchers found that breaking up a 60-minute treadmill workout into two 30-minute ones (with a 20-minute break in between) caused study participants to burn more fat than they did during one super-long session. If this really works, THAT ROCKS! Wanna read more?

For more on that, click here. ***Vitasoy holiday beverage time! Just a reminder that Vitasoy's super-delicious holiday beverages (Holly Nog and Peppermint Chocolate) are hitting shelves NOW. They have 120 - 140 calories and 2 - 4g fat per cup (POINTS® value 3*), so we usually use just a few ounces of 'em to spike our coffee. SOOO GOOOD! Look for them on shelves with the other non-refrigerated boxed soymilks in supermarkets, specialty shops, and natural foods stores. That's all we've got. HG out!
