Apple Continues to ROCK...
Hey, control freaks! Looking for a new way to track exactly how many
calories you're burning and how much distance you're covering when going
for a walk or run? Check out the new Nike + iPod Sport Kit. All you need
are some running shoes (they recommend you get the schmancy Nike+ ones
with the handy little pocket for the iPod sensor, but any running shoe will do),
an iPod Nano, and the sport kit. Once you have your gear in place, you're
ready to rock 'n roll. Listen to music, start walking, running, skipping, etc.,
and keep track of all the essential info -- including speed, distance, and
calories burned. It just may be time to toss that pathetic plastic pedometer
out the window.

Ketchup on the Latest Condiment News...
In the ongoing battle of tomato-rific condiments, it looks like salsa may have
actually knocked ketchup out of the top spot (according to some published
sales reports). However, the original tomato-based condiment isn't going
down without a fight. The kooky folks over at Heinz are offering what we
think is the most unique ketchup-related opportunity ever (but truth be told,
we haven't come across many ketchup-related opportunities). They're
offering people the opportunity to order personalized bottles of ketchup. You
can design the labels to say almost anything, so be creative. The website
even shows you how they'll look. Weeeeee!
Cool Stuff We Found...
Flower Power - We're always telling you to ditch the yolks, but if you're
feeling crazy enough to have an actual whole egg every once in a while (the
yolks ARE packed with vitamin D), why not enjoy it poached (as opposed to
fried in butter) and shaped like a pretty flower?! How cute is that?!
Book Find - 101 Nutrition Tips For People With Diabetes - Here's an at-a-
glance, updated version of the bestseller. It's a must-read for anyone with
diabetes, or even anyone who knows and wants to help someone with the
disease. FYI, 14.6 million Americans have been diagnosed with diabetes,
and an estimated 6.2 million people are unaware that they have it.
Go Tuck Yourself - Designed for women with curves, Tummy Tuck Jeans
flatten your belly, contour your hips, and lift your butt. BTW, Rachael Ray,
Diane Sawyer, and The View's Elizabeth Hasselbeck are all fans.
Awesome mag alert! Kiwi Magazine is here. This brand new, full-color,
beauteous mag will help parents raise the healthiest kids possible. Chock-
full of great ideas, nutritious foods, recipes and more, it's a must-read for
moms! Check out kiwimagonline.com for the whole scoop. ***Wanna hear
something wacky? A recent study conducted in the UK found that men who
were hungry (as in craving food) found heavier women more attractive than
thin ones. Looks like depriving our boyfriends and husbands of food for a
little while might not be such a bad idea. ***A recent study found that
chocolate may help repair aging blood vessels. Keep in mind, this study
WAS funded in part by Mars (they make chocolate). That doesn't mean the
findings are untrue, but we just wanted to point that out. ***Surprising news
from the antioxidant front. Looks like the top five antioxidant-packed foods
are blackberries, artichoke hearts, concord grape juice, walnuts, and
strawberries. Noticeably absent from the top slots are blueberries, red wine,
chocolate, and green tea. Those foods DO contain lots of antioxidants, just
not as many. That's all we've got. HG out!
