A Cheesecake Factory SHOCKER!
The Cheesecake Factory's got a new line of "Weight Management" salads
(snappy name) that aren't exactly "light" but contain under 590 calories
each. They are, as follows: Weight Management Asian Chicken Salad, Weight
Management Spicy Chicken Salad, Weight Management Pear and Endive
Salad, Weight Management California Salad, and Weight Management
Seafood Salad. These sound great and we plan on reviewing them officially
(and bringing you full nutritionals) soon. In the meantime, order that
dressing on the side and go easy on the fatty ingredients to save where you
can. 590 calories isn't exactly low for a bowl of greens, and it certainly
makes us wonder how many calories are in their REGULAR salads...
Omega-3s: All The Rage!
Yoplait Kids with Omega-3 DHA - The fruity, creamy, kid-fave yogurt is now
packed with this important nutrient that stimulates brain growth during early
childhood developmental stages. No worries, it's also good for adults, so feel
free to share these with the kiddies!
Odwalla Nourishing Food Bars in Berries GoMega - While many of Odwalla's
full-sized bars are omega-infused, this is the only one that comes in a
convenient snack size, too. The 110-calorie version (with just 2.5g fat) has
500mg of Omega-3s and the 220-calorie bar has a whopping 1000mg of the
Gardenburger California Burgers and Breaded Chik'n Patties - New veggie
options from our pals over at Gardenburger -- and they're packed with
Omega-3s. Yay! The burgers have just 90 calories and 3.5g fat but the chick-
swaps have 140 cals and 9gs of fat.

garlic thru a press before cooking it can preserve much of the herb's healthy
compounds. You learn something new every day. ***Did you know that
chewing sugar-free gum may actually fight the development of cavities by
stimulating production of acid-neutralizing saliva? And xylitol, a common
ingredient in many sugar-free gums, has cavity-fighting properties, too. So
chew it up! (FYI...Xylitol is very harmful to dogs so keep the pups away from
it.) That's all we've got. HG out!
