We interrupt this Friday…

by Jenn (eating bender) on July 11, 2008

To bring you some special Eating Bender announcements!

1) I have officially teamed up with Foodbuzz! I’m really excited to become a part of such a foodie-oriented community :mrgreen: As you can see to the right of this post, I will be featuring their widget on my blog from now on. Thanks, Foodbuzz!

2) I will be traveling this weekend to visit my mom’s side of the family! I will try to post if I have Internet access, but if you don’t hear from me, I will be back on Sunday night with a recap post!

3) As is customary with a short, non-picture post such as this one, I will include links to some articles I found particularly interesting today!

First of all, make sure to wear your sunscreen if you’re going to be outside this weekend. That said, when you are in the store and choosing a sunscreen to use, make sure you pick the right one or you may get “burned” HA! Can’t take the credit for that one, unfortunately. If you want to know more about the second link, check out the source here.

And finally, are you a fan of 100-calorie packs? I know I have bought various foods in this form on occasion – Teddy Grahams, Ritz Chips, Chips Ahoy…but not lately. This video from the Today show takes a look at just how healthy those “portion control” snacks are – check it out!!

Have a great rest of your Friday, and enjoy the weekend 8)

Oooh, so much exciting news!! Fun!! Have a wonderful time visiting your family :0)

I have never (and never will) purchase/eat those 100-calorie packs… I’d rather eat real food to satisfy my appetite :0)

I saw that same segment on the Today Show this morning. That guy was pretty harsh on those poor Teddy Grahams.
