Spotted on Shelves…

Trader Joe’s Savory Broth Chicken Flavor Reduced Sodium Liquid Concentrate

1 pouch: 20 calories, 1g total fat (0.5g sat fat), 360mg sodium, 3g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, <1g protein -- SmartPoints® value 1*

If you want something a little salty and savory that isn’t a major calorie commitment, broth is a perfect fix. And these single-serving packets of concentrate are perfectly portable! Just mix with hot water and sip away. Got a little more time (and ingredients) on your hands? Add cooked veggies and chopped chicken! HG Lisa is personally OBSESSED with this find.


Trader Joe’s Smoked Salmon Trio

2 slices: 80 calories, 3.5g total fat (0.5g sat fat), 610mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 11g protein -- SmartPoints® value 1*

What's better than smoked salmon? Flavored smoked salmon that comes three varieties to a pack! Try the Dried Dill, Beet Powder, and Black Pepper flavors. Then create your own snack combos. Dried Dill + light cream cheese + cucumber slices? YES. Beet Powder + everything bagel seasoning + lettuce cups? Heck, yes!

Trader Joe’s Spicy Thai Eggplant with Thai Basil

1 cup (1/2 package): 100 calories, 3.5g total fat (1g sat fat), 590mg sodium, 14g carbs, 3g fiber, 8g sugars, 3g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

The freezer aisle at TJ’s is a treasure trove, and this vegetarian entrée has earned a spot in our icebox. It’s VERY spicy, and the flavor is fantastic. Serve it up over cauliflower rice (it’s pretty saucy), and feel free to invite your protein of choice to the party. You’ll love it!
