Spotted on Shelves…

Today’s finds all have one thing in common: They were suggested by members of the Hungry Girl Community: What's Chewin'? group on Facebook. Check ‘em out, and join the group for more!

Trader Joe's Chocolate Hummus

2 tbsp.: 50 calories, 1.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 90mg sodium, 9g carbs, 1g fiber, 5g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 2*

If you're looking for a better-for-you way to get a chocolate fix, this bean-based dessert dip is where it’s at. The texture is smooth and creamy, and the chickpea taste is nonexistent… Just rich chocolatey goodness! Stock up on fresh fruit, and get dippin’.

Ragú Simply Pasta Sauce Made with Milk & Cauliflower

1/4 cup: 35 - 40 calories, 2 - 2.5g total fat (1.5g sat fat), 310 - 320mg sodium, 3g carbs, 0 - <1g fiber, 1g sugars, 2g protein -- SmartPoints® value 1 - 2*

How good is this sauce? It literally gave us CHILLS when we first tried it! For those times you can’t be bothered to whip up a cauliflower-based sauce from scratch, Ragú is here for you. In classic Creamy Alfredo and a Garlic Parmesan potent enough to thrill any garlic fan, these tasty sauces are great pantry staples. Find them at Walmart in the spaghetti sauce aisle.

BUBBA Original Veggie Burgers

One 3-oz. burger: 110 calories, 2.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 250mg sodium, 18g carbs, 5g fiber, 1g sugars, 5g protein -- SmartPoints® value 3*

We have a new favorite veggie burger! These gluten-free and vegan patties are crammed with vegetables, edamame… They even contain diced apples! Texture? On point. Flavor? Incredible. Lisa chopped one up and added it to her lunch salad, and it was a total winner. Grab a box from the freezer aisle, and enjoy.
