Fruity ‘n Frozen!
Spotted on Shelves
Weight Watchers Smart Ones Fruit Inspirations - The first line of nutritious frozen meals made with real fruit, lean protein, and veggies. There are FOUR varieties of these fruity entrees -- Honey Mango Barbeque Chicken, Pineapple Beef Teriyaki, Orange Sesame Chicken, and Cranberry Turkey Medallions. Each one contains 240 - 350 calories, 3.5 - 8g fat, 0 - 4g fiber, and a POINTS® value of 5 - 7*.
Betty Crocker Fiber One Premium Muffin Mix - Yep, it’s true -- this limited edition, bake-at-home muffin mix has been spotted on shelves across America in Apple Cinnamon. Each serving of the dry mix (1 muffin's worth) contains 130 calories, 3g fat, and 5g fiber (POINTS® value 2*). Prepared according to the package directions, each muffin would have 190 calories, 9g fat, and 5g fiber (POINTS® value 4*). But we say get creative and experiment -- you could probably save lots of calories and fat grams using ingredients like canned pure pumpkin, egg whites, and Unsweetened Almond Breeze instead!
100-Calorie Packs of Kettle Bakes Potato Chips - What a find! Kettle Bakes ROCK, and now the Lightly Salted Potato Chips are available in 100-calorie bags. Each 0.8-oz. bag has 2.5g fat and 2g fiber (POINTS® value 2*). Just be careful not to eat five bags at once.
American Idol Slow Churned Light Ice Cream -- It's BACK!
A new season of American Idol is upon us, people. And you know what that means… it’s SLOW CHURNED IDOL ICE CREAM TIME! Like all of the Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Light Ice Cream flavors, these have awesome nutritionals -- a half-cup serving of each has 100 - 120 calories, 2 - 4g fat, and 0 - 1g fiber (POINTS® value 2 - 3*). Here are the FIVE flavors being offered up this time around:
Cheesecake Diva - Cheesecake-flavored light ice cream, with brownie chunks and pretty fudge swirls.
Cookies 'n Dreamz - Chocolate light ice cream crammed with crunchy pieces of chocolate cookies.
Mint Karaoke Cookie - Mint-flavored light ice cream mixed with chunks of chocolate cookies.
Most Orange-inal - Vanilla light ice cream with swirls of orange sorbet.
One Split Wonder - Banana-flavored light ice cream with swirls of fruit and gooey fudge.
Recent studies show that Americans are slowly changing their eating habits for the better as opposed to “dieting”. In other words, they’re living their lives HG style! That’s one of the reasons Kraft decided to rename its South Beach Diet line South Beach Living. We’re totally on board with this. The SB Living line features a SLEW of new products, including TWO you can get free samples of right now -- the Granola Clusters (each portion-controlled pack has 130 calories, 4g fat, 6g fiber and a POINTS® value of 2*), and the Tide Me Over Drink Mix (each serving contains 30 calories, no fat, 5g fiber and a POINTS® value of 0*).

We interrupt this HG news to bring you an insanely cute photo of a crocheted frozen dinner. We’re obsessed with this item (and desperately want to cheer up the salisbury steak).

Now new research shows that oatmeal may do even more for us, like reduce blood pressure, weight gain and the risk of type 2 diabetes.Click here to read more about why oatmeal ROCKS. Then go eat some! Mmmmmm! ***Jack in the Box has some new lighter menu options, the most impressive being their GRILLED Chicken Strips! A four-strip serving has only about 180 calories and 2g fat (POINTS® value 4*). But go easy on the teriyaki sauce it's served with (that adds about 60 calories per oz.). Also keep an eye out for the company's new "Smart Choice" logo, which'll point you in the direction of their lighter options. That’s all we’ve got. HG out!
