Aug 6 2018

Spotted on Shelves… Trader Joe's Edition!

Verry Cherry Plum 

100g: 82 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat fat), 0mg sodium, 19g carbs, 1.4g fiber, 13.2g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 0*

This isn’t a plum with cherry flavoring... The Verry Cherry Plum combines the best of both stone fruits, and it’s GMO free! If you’re indecisive at snack time, this fruit mashup will make things a little easier. P.S. You can find these at other stores as well, but we scored ours at TJ’s!

Trader Joe’s Smoked Salmon Poke Bowl

1 bowl: 240 calories, 5g total fat (1g sat fat), 800mg sodium, 39g carbs, 2g fiber, 8g sugars, 11g protein -- SmartPoints® value 7*

Here’s another fun food hybrid for you... This grab & go bowl is like the lovechild of a lox breakfast sandwich and traditional Hawaiian poke! Just plain brilliant. Stick a fork (or some chopsticks) into brown sushi rice, marinated smoked salmon, pickled veggies, sweet onion, zingy ginger, and blood orange ponzu sauce. The perfect quickie meal when it’s too hot to cook (i.e. every day this summer). Find it in the fridge section, by the salads and sushi rolls.

Trader Joe’s Mini Dark Chocolate Mint Coins

8 cookies: 140 calories, 7g total fat (4g sat fat), 65mg sodium, 20g carbs, 2g fiber, 11g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 6*

PEOPLE. These are the best li'l Thin Mints knockoffs on the face of the planet. Eat EIGHT of them for under 150 calories. The dark chocolate is nice and rich, which makes them extra satisfying. HG tip: Try these frozen! We're totally addicted and definitely not eating them right this second. OK, we might be…
