Seapoint Farms Gluten Free High Protein Organic Edamame Spaghetti and Fettuccine

2 oz. (about 1/4 box) uncooked: 200 calories, 3g total fat (0.5g sat fat), 0mg sodium, 21g carbs, 12g fiber, 3g sugars, 24g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

If you're craving noodles but prefer to avoid empty carbs, this pasta is a winner. Check out those stats... We've never seen pasta with so much protein and fiber! The only ingredient is organic soybeans (a.k.a. edamame). The flavor is yummy, and the texture is on point. Check the store locator, or one-click it on Amazon. P.S. We also LOVE the brand's 100-calorie packs of dry-roasted edamame!

Luna Rica Bars

1 bar: 160 - 170 calories, 8 - 9g total fat (2 - 3.5g sat fat), 125 - 140mg sodium, 22 - 23g carbs, 2 - 3g fiber, 16 - 17g sugars, 3 - 4g protein -- SmartPoints® value 7 - 8*

Rica is Spanish for rich and delicious, and boy oh boy, are these bars aptly named... They're filled with delicious nut butter, and the fruit & nut base is chewy and amazing! Check out the flavor combos: Chocolate Peanut Butter (Lisa's favorite), Chocolate Coconut Almond, and Salted Caramel Nut. Mmmmm! Look for them in stores nationwide or order online...
