It's time for another trip to Trader Joe's! (But really, when isn't it?) Our latest haul revealed some new must-have items — here are a few of our top picks…

HG FYI: Trader Joe’s stock varies by location… Give your local TJ’s a call before shopping to confirm availability.

​​Trader Joe’s Eggwich Breadless Breakfast Sandwich

1 sandwich: 190 calories, 12g total fat (5g sat. fat), 610mg sodium, 3g carbs, 0g fiber, <1g sugars, 16g protein — SmartPoints® value 6*

Think of this like an Egg McMuffin with sausage… and no bread! These frozen bunless sandwiches have that fast-food breakfast flavor (in the best way possible): The egg bun is tender and not watery, the turkey sausage is tasty, and there's a good dose of cheese holding it together. Paired with a side of fruit, this is a totally terrific breakfast!

Trader Joe’s Vegan Enchilada Casserole

1 cup: 260 calories, 11g total fat (3.5g total fat), 660mg sodium, 35g carbs, 6g fiber, 4g sugars, 5g protein — SmartPoints® value 9*

This plant-based casserole is an absolute winner! It's made up of pinto beans and roasted veggies layered with corn tortillas and red chile sauce, then smothered in mozzarella & cheddar-style shreds… YUM. The vegan cheeses melt perfectly, the sauce is excellent, and the overall effect is deeply comfort-food satisfying. Find it with the refrigerated prepared foods! (P.S. The tray contains 2.5 servings; we'd definitely eat half the casserole for 320 calories.)

Trader Joe’s Vegan Tzatziki Dip

2 tbsp.: 50 calories, 4.5g total fat (4g sat. fat), 130mg sodium, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein — SmartPoints® value 3*

Dairy avoiders, your lucky day is here! This spin on the classic yogurt dip tastes so much like the real thing that you'd never guess it was vegan. The flavor is fantastic: cool, tart, and creamy, just like tzatziki should be. We would also use it as a salad dressing — add a splash of vinegar or lemon juice if it's a bit too thick to mix!
