Pam Professional High Heat - No-stick cooking spray is an HG staple. Pam's
newest version is specially formulated for high-heat cooking. So sauté, roast,
and stir-fry it up with less of that annoying residue. We love you, Pam!
Cascadian Farm Gourmet Organic Winter Squash - Feel free to defrost and
use this frozen squash in ANY HG recipe that calls for mashed butternut
squash. A half of a cup of mashed squash is about equal to a heaping cup of
raw cubes. It'll save you TONS of time, and probably a few bruises, too (b-
nut squash is NOT easy to peel, cut and de-seed!). This stuff is AWESOME!
Dreyer's/Edy's Limited Edition Slow Churned Pumpkin Ice Cream - That
Apple Pie find we featured last week isn't the only insanely great limited
edition fall flavor from Dreyer's. Their crazy-delicious Slow Churned Pumpkin
ice cream has just 100 calories and 3g fat per 1/2 cup. Just make sure to get
the one labeled Slow Churned, and NOT the regular Limited Edition version
(that one has more calories and fat). Stock up on the stuff, 'cuz it'll be gone

R.I.P. -- McDonald's Southwest Salad
Oh, it's a sad day at the HG HQ. Our inbox has been overflowing lately with
emails from people who are disillusioned... saddened... upset... and even
hopping mad because McDonald's is phasing out their limited edition
Southwest Salad. We knew it was coming. From day one, Ronald's PR team
(and all the signage and ads for this salad) warned that it wouldn't be around
forever, and that it could be leaving us at any time. But honestly, that
doesn't make losing it any easier. So long, warm cilantro-lime glazed
chicken. Bye-bye, black beans and roasted corn. Ta ta, tortilla strips. We'll
miss you, and we hope you'll be back next year so we can chew you again.
In the meantime, we here at HG are pledging to create a recipe for a super-
delicious swap for this salad and share it with all of you very soon (as in,
within the next few weeks!). So stay tuned...
Bodybugg Fever... Will YOU Catch It?
There's no REAL secret to losing weight. Just take in fewer calories than you
burn. Doy. But figuring out how many calories you burn is the tough part.
That's where the Bodybugg comes in. This funky little device is super-smart
and measures EXACTLY how many calories you're burning throughout the
day, no matter what you're doing (walking, sleeping, chopping onions, or
playing ping pong!). This is NOT a pedometer (or anything similar) -- the
science behind it is WAY more scientific and complicated. It's quite pricey
(although you do get a slew of online extras with your calorie-counting
armband), but we've spotted a half a dozen people sporting BBs in the past
week alone. The Bodybugg craze has officially begun! Click here for ALL the
details. Warning: Clicking could be detrimental to your wallet -- but this
product is definitely worth knowing about...
Chili peppers are HOT! Literally. And the HOTTER the pepper, the healthier it
is for you. Experts say capsaicin, the hot peppers heat-causing component,
has been proven to kill cancer cells, prevent sinus infections, serve as an
anti-inflammatory agent, and help lower body fat. Spicy foods also take
longer to eat and cause you to drink more water. Do NOT underestimate the
power of the pepper, peeps! ***Want a FREE sample of that FANTASTIC
Dunkin' Donuts coffee we're always yapping about? You can have one... just
CLICK HERE! ***People who keep track of what they eat are WAY more
successful at losing weight than those who don't. That's a fact. Journaling
works. And if you want GREAT journals, check out writetolose.com. Their
journals are EXACTLY what you need to keep track and STAY on track. Of
course, if you don't have a fancy journal, any paper will do (in other words,
NO EXCUSES!). ***HEY! Do something good today -- go to unclebens.com,
sign Ben's Journal, and raise money for needy kids. For each person
who "signs", Uncle Benny will donate one dollar to America's Second Harvest
Kids Cafe program. (It only takes a few seconds to sign up, and it's WAY
worth it!) That's all we've got. HG out!
