Spotted on Shelves… Trader Joe's Edition!

Trader Joe's Cauliflower Gnocchi

1 cup: 140 calories, 3g total fat (0.5g sat. fat), 460mg sodium, 22g carbs, 6g fiber, <1g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

Homemade gnocchi is a LOT of work (and CARBS). Let TJ's do the heavy lifting for you with this wheat-free, lightened-up frozen find! Made with 75 percent cauliflower, it’s way lower in carby calories than your average doughy dumplings. Cook it in a skillet for best results... Then toss it with your favorite marinara or some Parm, light butter, salt, and pepper!

Trader Joe’s Egg White Salad with Chives

1/2 container (3 oz.): 60 calories, 3g total fat (0g sat. fat), 320mg sodium, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 7g protein -- SmartPoints® value 1*

Fresh egg-white salad that's ready to eat and SO low in calories that you could eat the entire tub without giving it a second thought? That deserves some major love! Variations on this salad come and go, but this chive-studded staple will always have a place in our hearts (and refrigerators!). And since TJ's locations have plastic forks available by the exits, this is a great item to grab for an on-the-go protein fix. If you haven’t yet tried it, NOW is the time.

Trader Joe’s Green Goddess Salad Dressing

2 tbsp: 20 calories, 2g total fat (0g sat. fat), 95mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- SmartPoints® value 1*

At first glance, you might mistake this product for a bottled green smoothie, but look again: It's a blended vegan dressing made from herbs, veggies, and cold-pressed lemon juice! The thick texture comes from the avocado and pureed produce, and the flavor is off-the-charts amazing. Plus, HELLO, that calorie count cannot be beat! Find it in the refrigerated produce section, near the bagged lettuce.
HG FYI: Trader Joe’s stock varies by location… Give your local TJ’s a call before shopping to confirm availability.
