Silk Flavored Cashew Milk Silk Vanilla and Chocolate Cashew Creamy Cashewmilk - When Silk rolled out cashew milk earlier this year, we flipped for its creamy texture and stellar stats. Now the brand has unveiled two new flavors, and we can't get enough! In Vanilla and Chocolate, a cup of either has 80 - 90 calories, 2 - 2.5g fat, 170 - 200mg sodium, 14 - 18g carbs, 0 - 1g fiber, 12 - 16g sugars, and <1 - 1g protein (PointsPlus® value 2*). Rolling out nationwide this month... Look for them in the fridge section of the supermarket.

Popcorn Indiana Fit Popcorn Chips - Fans of this brand's low-cal popcorn, rejoice: These gluten-free, whole-grain crisps are just as "fit," and they come in fun flavors: Sweet Potato Cinnamon, Spinach Feta, White Cheddar, and classic Sea Salt. Mmmmm! A 1-oz. serving (about 15 - 20 chips) has 120 - 140 calories, 2.5 - 5g fat, 10 - 230mg sodium, 19 - 22g carbs, 1g fiber, 0 - 4g sugars, and 1 - 2g protein (PointsPlus® value 3 - 4*). Find 'em nationwide at Whole Foods, Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, and more.  

Balance Bar Dark in Dark Chocolate Caramel Macchiato - We never tire of tasty snack bars sporting fiber and protein, and we love that this delicious newbie even serves up antioxidants... Talk about an all-in-one quick fix! Each bar has 180 calories, 6g fat, 200mg sodium, 20g carbs, 4g fiber, 12g sugars, and 13g protein (PointsPlus® value 5*). Click to find, or buy online...
