I love all your Amazon recommendations, so I need to know… What’s in your Amazon cart RIGHT NOW?

Fun! I’ve always got several things sitting in my Amazon cart, just waiting to be ordered. Here’s what’s in there this week...

Brad’s Veggie Chips in Cheddar

1 oz.: 70 calories, 3g total fat (0g sat. fat), 250mg sodium, 10g carbs, 2g fiber, 2g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 2*

These chips are truly healthy... They’re plant based and 100% natural. And instead of being baked or fried, they’re air dried, which locks in the nutrients. I love that they’re crunchy and flavorful but also good for you! I’ve been crushing them up and sprinkling them on my eggs and adding ‘em to salads. There’s a 3 pack of the multi-serving bags, but the 6 pack is only a few dollars more...

SelfieWorld Premium 5-in-1 Bluetooth Selfie Stick

I don’t know why I’ve waited so long to jump on the selfie-stick bandwagon, but I’m having a hard time resisting this one. It works with 5 different camera modes, won’t drain your phone battery, and folds down to a size that’s small enough to fit in your purse! Plus, you can rotate the head until you find the perfect angle. So cool and under $20. I might get one for myself and one for my niece Lauren.

Mac Yourself Powdered Cheese Sauce Mix

1 tbsp.: 40 calories, 2g total fat (2g sat. fat), 890mg sodium, 3g carbs, 0g fiber, 3g sugars, 1g protein -- SmartPoints® value 2*

You know that magical orange powder at the bottom of blue-boxed mac & cheese? Now you can buy it as a standalone product and give ANYTHING that intensely delicious cheesy flavor! I know, I know... It’s not exactly the most nutrient-dense food find out there. But it tastes great, and a little goes a very long way!

Palmini Hearts of Palm Linguine

75g: 20 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat. fat), 140mg sodium, 4g carbs, 2g fiber, 0g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 0*

I’ve raved about this stuff in daily emails and on my podcast... It’s seriously amazing. Palmini is just canned hearts of palm cut into linguine-like strands, and it’s an unbelievable noodle swap. Just rinse and eat! Perfect for low-carb “pasta” salad. It has a slightly tart taste that's similar to artichoke hearts... I absolutely LOVE it. Okay, I’ve decided: Time to spring for a case!

Yougai Professional Manicure/Pedicure Set

It’s the summer of sandals, so my toes need to be at the top of their game. Enter this deluxe set of tools for at-home manis and pedis! It’s also a good idea to take your own set of nail tools with you to the salon... This way, you’ll know yours are the only fingers and toes that the tools have touched. This set is a bargain: 18 stainless-steel pieces plus a colorful case for about $10. If Lauren is lucky, I’ll get one for her too! :)
