Wowowow… These organic, gluten-free granola bars contain the same amount of nutrients as a full serving of veggies! They're also low in sugar, loaded with whole grains, and free of the top eight common allergens (meaning they're safe for schools). Best of all, the yummy taste and soft texture ROCK!

Schmancy acai bowls are all over Instagram, but buying them from smoothie shops is a pricey endeavor. And making 'em from scratch is a whole lotta work! Enter Dole's new fruit-and-granola-topped lineup. Available in awesome Original, tasty Tropical, and extra-filling Protein, we love that they come in portion-controlled containers. Find them at supermarkets like ShopRite, Stop & Shop, Wegmans, and Price Chopper.

When it comes to high-quality carbs, quinoa is a protein-packed all-star, but cooking it can be a bit of a pain. You’ve got to rinse it well, and those tiny seeds get everywhere! Keep things simple with this easy-cook version. It boils right in the bag, and it's done in 10 minutes! Track down a bag or two near you, and then check out these Hungry Girl recipes!
