Al Dente Pasta Company Carba-Nada Egg Fettuccine

1 1/2 cups (2 oz.) dry: 170 calories, 1.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 15mg sodium, 24g carbs, 7g fiber, 2g sugars, 15g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

This pasta has a LOT going for it: It’s low in net carbs (17g), it’s high in protein & fiber, AND it cooks up in 3 minutes flat! It’s made with digestive-resistant cornstarch, something similar to soluble fiber. We love the texture: It’s al dente, just like the name promises. Click here to find it in stores, or order from Amazon or the Al Dente website. And check out the other Carba-Nada shapes & flavors too!

Treeline Creamy Soft French-Style Treenut Cheese

1 oz. (28g): 90 - 100 calories, 7 - 8g total fat (1g sat fat), 90 - 100mg sodium, 3g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 0g sugars, 3 - 4g protein -- SmartPoints® value 3*

Whether you've ditched dairy or just love deliciously cheesy things, you've got to check out this vegan line. The creamy nut-based cheeses come in Sea Salt & Pepper, Scallion (our favorite), Chipotle-Serrano Pepper, and Herb-Garlic. We dipped carrots into them, but they'd be great spread over crackers or in a wrap! Click to locate, or order online.

Lesser Evil Mini Cookies

3 cookies: 100 - 110 calories, 5 - 8g total fat (2 - 3.5g sat fat), 30 - 45mg sodium, 5 - 8g carbs, 2g fiber, 3 - 5g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

Ready to fall in love with some lower-carb cookies? These soft-baked treats are tasty to the extreme! They’re made with almond and coconut flours and sweetened with coconut sugar. Try both the Almond Butter Chocolate Chip and Snickerdoodle varieties. Available in Whole Foods, on Amazon, and via the brand’s website.
And that's all we've got. 'Til next time, chew the right thing!
