6 Things to Add to Your Grocery List

Sep 16 2016
These six items are so amazing that we'd hate for you to miss out... Add 'em to your grocery list STAT. (And for the rest of our supermarket recommendations, click here!)

Eat Well Embrace Life Hummus Singles

One 2-oz. container: 110 - 120 calories, 5 - 9g total fat (0 - 0.5g sat fat), 210 - 330mg sodium, 5 - 12g carbs, 2 - 4g fiber, 0 - 3g sugars, 3 - 5g protein -- SmartPoints® value 3*

Who hasn't accidentally gone overboard with a tub of hummus? And considering a standard 10-oz. container has around 600 calories(!), these portion-controlled (and portable) finds are a total win. In Tuscan White Bean, Edamame, and Zesty Sriracha Carrot (the best, by far!), you can't go wrong with these minis from one of our favorite hummus brands. Unless, you know, you don't get any of 'em.

Dave's Killer Bread Thin-Sliced Organic Bread

1 slice: 60 - 70 calories, 1 - 2g total fat (0g sat fat), 95 - 115mg sodium, 11 - 14g carbs, 2 - 4g fiber, 1 - 3g sugars, 2 - 3g protein -- SmartPoints® value 2*

You may have noticed that we're super picky when it comes to bread, so the fact that we're recommending this line means A LOT. We love that these slim slices are all-natural and hearty with impressive calorie counts. And they taste great! Try all four varieties: 21 Whole Grains and Seeds, Powerseed, Good Seed, and 100% Whole Wheat.

Dole Mixations

1 container: 70 - 80 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat fat), 5 - 10mg sodium, 17 - 20g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 14 - 15g sugars, 0 - <1g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

At first glance, these shelf-stable fruit cups might look like your average flavored applesauce... NOPE. This line features chunks of fruit stirred into blended sauces. Think peach-apple sauce with pieces of pineapple. Mmmm... And while they're sweet and yummy as is, they're even better (and extremely sorbet-like!) frozen.

Crunchies Freeze-Dried Beets

1/3 cup: 35 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat fat), 140mg sodium, 8g carbs, 2g fiber, 6g sugars, 1g protein -- SmartPoints® value 2*

Don't be fooled: Most veggie chips are fried in oil just like potato chips. So when these unique freeze-dried beet slices popped up in the snack world, we jumped all over ‘em. These are literally just thinly sliced beets zapped of all their moisture -- no oil, no salt, no nothing. Such a great snack! We even use them as crispy salad toppers. Try a bag ASAP.

Quest Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Protein Bar

1 bar: 190 calories, 8g total fat (1.5g sat fat), 180mg sodium, 22g carbs, 15g fiber, 1g sugars, 20g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

In general, Quest Bars are fantastic: phenomenal texture (like nougat!), plus loads of fiber and protein. But every once in a while, a flavor comes along that truly blows us away. Enter this new variety. Bursting with cinnamon, it tastes like a cross between an oatmeal cookie and a chocolate-chip blondie. You heard it here first... This one's a must!

Litehouse Guacamole Herb & Spice Blend

1 tsp.: 5 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat fat), 0mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- SmartPoints® value 0*

Oh look, another freeze-dried item on this list! But this one isn't a snack; it's a brilliant recipe shortcut. These are freeze-dried (plus some regular dried) spices, in a blend that's all ready to turn plain avocado into guacamole -- no chopping needed. YES, REALLY. Red onion, cilantro, garlic... Just add in a squeeze of lime and salt to taste. Crucial when it comes to surprise guests and sudden guac cravings!

Chew on this:

Woohoo, it's National Guacamole Day, September 16th! Grab an avocado and the last item on today's list...
