  Best Ready-to-Go Store-Bought Finds

Evol. Mini Burritos

1 burrito: 180 - 190 calories, 3 - 4g fat, 310 - 360mg sodium, 28 - 32g carbs, 2 - 4g fiber, 0 - 1g sugars, 7 - 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4 - 5*

Burritos are good, and small-sized foods are always fun. Plus, these things are pretty low in calories -- perfect as a snack or mini-meal. And they come in three varieties, including a meatless one. Track down some of the freezer-aisle items here, or stock up for next time by ordering online. 

 
  Wholly Guacamole Double Dip

2 tbsp.: 35 calories, 2.5g fat, 115mg sodium, 2g carbs, 1g fiber, 1g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*

This guac topped with a layer of spicy pico de gallo is an AWESOME party-ready find. In fact, there's pretty much a Wholly Guacamole product for every need. Eating guac by yourself and don't want to overindulge? There are 100 Cal Snack Packs. Like it hot? There's a Spicy flavor. Only eat organic? They've got organic guacamole. Find WG goodies in the refrigerated produce section of your local supermarket. Heads up: This product is being repackaged as Wholly Salsa Guacamole & Spicy Pico dip, so look for that label later this month.

 
 
 
  Guiltless Gourmet Yellow Corn Tortilla Chips

1 oz. (about 18 chips): 120 calories, 3g fat, 250mg sodium, 19g carbs, 2g fiber, 0g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

Tortilla chips are a fiesta-time necessity; less necessary is all the fat that typically comes with conventional crisps. So chomp on these! Yellow Corn is our go-to variety for classic tortilla-chip flavor, but there are MANY other kinds from which to choose: Unsalted, Blue Corn, Mucho Nacho... even Spinach Artichoke Parmesan! Click, locate, and chew accordingly.

 
  Sinless Low Calorie Cocktail Mixes

3 oz.: 5 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*

Looking for a super-simple way to whip up calorie-slashed margaritas and more? These just-add-alcohol mixes ROCK. The stevia-sweetened sippers come in Margarita, Strawberry Margarita, and Sweet & Sour. And they taste FANTASTIC. Sweet, slightly tart, and all-around delicious. Click here to track down a bottle for this weekend, or order some online for future celebrations.

 
 
 
  HG's Cinco de Mayo Supermarket Staples!


When it comes to the building blocks of DIY, guilt-free, Mexican-style goodies, there are a few key items. Cheese tops the list -- reduced-fat Mexican-blend and fat-free cheddar shreds are ideal for topping off chili, fajitas, and more. Beans are crucial, especially black beans and fat-free refried beans. You're also gonna want tortillas; 6-inch corn tortillas are great for soft tacos, and these fiber-loaded flour tortillas are perfect for burritos. Taco shells are a must for crunchy tacos -- the flat-bottomed finds are the way to go. Salsa is essential -- we LOVE the black-bean-and-corn varieties. Finally, if you want to skip the ground meat in your meal but not the beefy taste, meatless ground-beef-style soy crumbles are a great solution -- click here for the 411.
