Hopping on the sweet potato toast trend just got easier! Sweet PotaTOASTS are freezer-aisle slabs of roasted sweet potato. They’re like tasty little blank slates, ready to top however you like! We’re thinking PB&J, light cream cheese & everything bagel seasoning, and avocado & cherry tomatoes, just to name a few. Try both the original and the Sea Salt & Olive Oil.

STOP SCROLLING! This brand-new (and delicious!) product deserves your full attention. It’s a shelf-stable, gluten-free veggie-based rice made with nutrient-packed ingredients like lentils, chickpeas, and green peas! It has TWICE the protein of white rice, with FIVE times as much fiber and almost 40 percent fewer net carbs. WOW. Each serving also delivers 10 grams of complete protein, which is impressive for a plant-based product. (Side note: This is the brainchild of our good pal Keith who created Popchips!) Try all four varieties: Original, Lemon Pepper, Spanish, and Garlic Herb. Find it in the rice aisle at Whole Foods, or order online!

SmartPoints® value* not what you expected? We follow the same method as WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers) when calculating the value of a recipe: We add up the SmartPoints® values* of the individual ingredients using the Recipe Builder, not the calculator. (Many foods have a value of zero and remain zero in recipes.)
