Ithaca Cold-Crafted Hummus

2 tbsp.: 50 - 70 calories, 3 - 5g total fat (0 - 0.5g sat fat), 95 - 150mg sodium, 5 - 6g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, <1 - 1g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 1 - 2*

The packaging says "this hummus tastes fresh," and it doesn’t lie! This is hands-down some of the best store-bought hummus we've had, and we really love the flavor lineup: Classic, Smoked Chipotle, Roasted Red Pepper, Kalamata Olive, Fresh Lemon Dill (the HG favorite), Fresh Lemon Garlic, and Fresh Lemon Beet. No preservatives, no soy, and no artificial ingredients. Click to locate!

RightRice Medley with Ancient Grains

1/3 cup (dry): 170 - 190 calories, 1.5 - 2.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 290 - 390mg sodium, 33 - 34g carbs, 5g fiber, 2 - 4g sugars, 8g protein -- SmartPoints® value 5*

MAJOR FIND: These veggie-based rice medleys are like modern day Rice-A-Roni! In addition to a blend of lentils, chickpeas, peas, and rice -- like the classic RightRice we love -- this line features quinoa and bonus veggies. Real rice texture, fantastic flavor, and nearly 30% fewer net carbs than white rice! Choose from Fried Rice, Cajun Spice, and Harvest Pilaf (Lisa's favorite -- it has pumpkin seeds!). Available at Whole Foods and on Amazon… You’ve got to try them!

1 patty: 150 calories, 4.5g total fat (0.5g sat fat), 560mg sodium, 8g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 21g protein -- SmartPoints® value 5*

These vegetarian freezer-aisle burgers are so good, we could eat them all day long! They have an impressively beefy taste and texture, and they're SO high in protein. Consider them the latest addition to our meatless arsenal. Also noteworthy? Alpha Foods’ Grilled Chik'n Strips -- meatless, tasty, and perfect over a salad. Click to find Alpha Foods near you.
