Perfect Bites Refrigerated Protein Snack

11 pieces: 160 calories, 10g total fat (1.5 - 2g sat fat), 30 - 40mg sodium, 10 - 11g carbs, 2g fiber, 7 - 8g sugars, 7g protein -- SmartPoints® value 5 - 6*

Have you tried Perfect Bars, the refrigerated nut-butter snacks you see at supermarkets and convenience stores? Introducing the brand’s poppable mini morsels, which are equally perfect! With less than 15 calories per piece, you can determine your ideal portion -- have a few for a quick pick-me-up or enjoy a full satisfying serving. Choose from Peanut Butter (yum) and Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter (double yum)! Find them at Harris Teeter, Wegmans, Safeway (southwest locations), and Vons. Just like the bars, you’ll find these in the fridge section…

Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk Blended with Real Bananas

1 cup: 80 calories, 2g total fat (0g sat fat), 150mg sodium, 15g carbs, 1g fiber, 12g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

OH, WOW. The brilliant minds at Blue Diamond blended banana into their unsweetened almond milk, and the results are mind-blowing! So rich, creamy, and delicious, and no added sugar. We’ve been adding it to our coffee, oatmeal, smoothies, and more! A little goes a long way. Track down a carton, and click here to see Lisa’s video review.

Yves Vegan Gluten Free Veggie Burger

1 patty: 110 calories, 6g total fat (0g sat fat), 400mg sodium, 5g carbs, 3g fiber, 0g sugars, 12g protein -- SmartPoints® value 2*

This is Lisa’s new favorite veggie burger! It reminds us of an old-school Boca patty -- really meat-like and satisfying -- and we're totally into it. Enjoy one on a flat bun, over shredded lettuce, on a lettuce bun, or in any HG recipe that calls for a meatless hamburger-style patty (like these!). Find ‘em at Whole Foods and Walmart in the refrigerated section.
