Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend with Sea Salt, Garlic & Onion

1/4 tsp.: 5 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat fat), 80mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- SmartPoints® value 0*

This may be the seasoning find of the century... It makes anything taste like an everything bagel! We've been sprinkling it on egg whites (scrambled and hard-boiled), steamed broccoli, and cucumber slices topped with light cream cheese. We're in LOVE with this stuff! It even inspired our Everything Bagel Bites recipe. It can be ordered via Amazon, but it's pricey. Find it at Trader Joe's locations for a lower price.

Frontera Gourmet Mexican Cuisine Frozen Bowls in Chicken Fajita and Barbacoa Taco

1 bowl: 260 - 290 calories, 2.5 - 6g total fat (0.5 - 2g sat fat), 480 - 700mg sodium, 36g carbs, 8 - 9g fiber, 7 - 8g sugars, 22 - 23g protein -- SmartPoints® value 7 - 8*

Over the years, we've sampled more than our fair share of frozen entrées. Well, these bowls from chef Rick Bayless are, HANDS DOWN, some of the best we've ever tried. They taste ridiculously fresh, have the perfect amount of rice (not too much, like some other frozen meals), and are loaded with flavor. In addition to these tasty varieties (which we're obsessed with), check out the Tinga Taco and Veggie Taco. Nice work, Rick! Click to locate.

Delighted By Dessert Hummus

2 tbsp.: 50 - 80 calories, 1 - 6g total fat (0.5 - 5g sat fat), 15 - 35mg sodium, 7 - 9g carbs, 1g fiber, 4 - 6g sugars, 1 - 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 2 - 4*

Yes, you read that right -- this is hummus that tastes like dessert! We were skeptical (and slightly confused) at first, but it's CRAZY good. Made from garbanzo beans, it's vegan-friendly, gluten-free, non-GMO, and free of peanuts and soy. The dip comes in four sweet flavors: Vanilla Bean, Choc-O-Mint, Snickerdoodle, and Brownie Batter. We love them ALL. Perfect for fresh-fruit dipping and graham-cracker spreading. Click to locate! P.S. Boar's Head also makes dessert hummus, and it's delicious!
