Cedarlane Refrigerated Protein Bowls

One 10-oz. bowl: 300 - 310 calories, 6 - 15g total fat (1 - 8g sat fat), 590 - 640mg sodium, 28 - 44g carbs, 1 - 4g fiber, 4 - 5g sugars, 14 - 22g protein -- SmartPoints® value 8 - 11*

We’ve been fans of Cedarlane's frozen meals for a while, but we’ve just discovered this spectacular refrigerated lineup! We fell hard for the comfort-foody 3 Layer Chicken Enchilada bowl, with its tender chicken, tasty beans, gooey cheese, and savory tomato sauce. It’s a little like a casserole, but you don’t have to share! There are other options too: Chicken Fajita, Green Curry Chicken, and Chicken Shawarma. Click to locate. We found them at Target!

Golden Nest Chicken Bites

1 oz.: 90 calories, 1g total fat (0g sat fat), 270mg sodium, 10g carbs, 0g fiber, 9g sugars, 9g protein -- SmartPoints® value 3*

These jerky snacks are so fun! They're individually wrapped squares of tender peel-apart chicken in Honey Teriyaki and Honey Sriracha flavors -- super fresh taste, and the texture rocks. The packaging makes them awesome for on-the-go snacking. We also love the French translation on the bag -- "Poulet Bouchées" sounds way fancier than Chicken Bites. Look for them in Ralphs, H Mart, Safeway, Albertsons, and Rouses, or order online

Vegan Rob’s Probiotic Cauliflower Puffs

1 oz. (about 1 3/4 cups): 140 calories, 8g total fat (1g sat fat), 160mg sodium, 17g carbs, 2g fiber, 1g sugars, 3g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

These crunchy snack puffs are unique and so delicious! The flavor is mild and slightly sweet, and the vegan cheese ingredients bring the yum. Vegan Rob makes a SLEW of creative plant-based crispy snacks made with everything from beets to Brussels sprouts, but this cruciferous pick is our current favorite. We LOVE that they come in both mini bags and multi-serving bags. (FYI: Each mini contains a 1.25-oz. portion, so the stats will be slightly higher than the ones listed above.) Click to locate, or order from Amazon.
