Lean Cuisine Spring Rolls - HOORAY for quick, crunchy, guilt-free finger food! These new Casual Cuisine items from LC -- in Fajita-Style Chicken, Thai-Style Chicken, and Garlic Chicken -- make a fun app or hot snack. A 3-roll serving only has 200 calories, 7 - 8g fat, 580mg sodium, 20 - 24g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 3 - 4g sugars, and 10 - 15g protein (PointsPlus® value 5*). We'll be grabbing the Garlic Chicken ones when we don't feel like making these guys (such similar ingredients!)...
Weight Watchers Coffee Cake - Before you tear into these individually wrapped snack cakes, here are three things to know... One, they're a tad on the small side. Two, they're REALLY delicious (as in hard to stop at just one). Three, if you're gonna have one with your coffee, pair it with some fruit (PointsPlus® value 0*) to keep you from getting hungry and grabbing another pastry. Each cake has 120 calories, 3.5g fat, 150mg sodium, 25g carbs, 5g fiber, 11g sugars, and 2g protein (PointsPlus® value 3). P.S. The filling tastes AMAZING.
Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta - You love regular pasta but aren't nuts about its low nutritional value and high stats. Shirataki noodles don't do it for you. What's a carb-lover to do? Try out these white-style noodles, enriched with calcium, vitamin D, and fiber! A 2-oz. uncooked serving has 180 calories, 0.5g fat, 5 - 15mg sodium, 43g carbs, 7g fiber, 1g sugars, and 6 - 7g protein (PointsPlus® value 5*). And there are SEVEN varieties, like Elbows and Extra Wide Noodles. We LOVE options!
Foods Worth Ordering Online!
While it can seem like a hassle to order food items, some things are so worth it. These are our latest picks...
Lucero Flavored Balsamic Vinegars - We'll admit it: We're suckers for fancy vinegars. So much flavor + so few calories = true love. With 25 calories per tbsp., Lucero serves up five INSANELY amazing flavors: Blueberry, Fig, Peach, Red Apple, and Wild Cherry. They're sweet and slightly tart, in a very good way! And since a little bit goes far, a bottle will last a long time. Try 'em drizzled over berries or some grilled veggies. And check out this sampler pack of mini bottles!
New Varieties! Bagel Spice - Despite the "Spice up your life!" labels, these virtually calorie-free seasoning mixes have no affiliation with the Spice Girls. We previously mentioned the salt-free original blend, but now there's a Zesty Jalape
