I’m always on the lookout for healthy new products on the market. I especially like foods that come in portion controlled packs! Several of the picks for this post came from recommendations from my clients as well as trips to Whole Foods, Matter of Health, Morton Williams and random delis in NYC. I’d love to hear about any new products YOU come across. Add your ideas to the comments section and I’ll take a look!

 

 

Cauliflower Rice
Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower   &   Green Giant Cauliflower Crumbles

This is the newest craze! I actually wasn’t able to find the Green Giant crumbles at any store.  I heard they sold it at Whole Foods – however was told by a Whole Food worker they didn’t stock in. Check out your local Trader Joe’s!  Stay tuned for a blog post on Helathy Cauliflower Rice. And in the meantime, be on the lookout for these valuble little crumbles!Cauli Crumbles-16oz FINAL_sm

Belgiosa Mozzarella Cheese Pearls

Eden Pocket Snacks Pocket Snacks
Great little snacks. Nine varieties of nuts, seeds, and dried fruits that come in handy single serve packets that go anywhere
All are Gluten Free, low sodium, and kosher. Examples:
Quiet Moon: 1 packet   Calories: 140   Fat:11gm   Carb:10gm    Fiber: 4 gm   Protein: 5 gm   Sodium:15 mg
Pumpkin Seeds: 1 packet   Low Sodium: 1 packet  Calories: 200   Fat: 16 gm   Carb: 5 gm     Fiber: 5gm   Protein: 8 gm    Sodium: 100 mg
Dried Cherries: 1 packet   Calories: 90   Fat: 0 gm  Carb: 23 gm  Fiber:2 gm   Protein: 0 gm    Sodium: 10 mg

 

 

 

No Cow Bar Dairy and Gluten Free energy bar
These bars are loaded protein and fiber and super low in carbs and sugar. My favorite flavor is Peanut Butter Cookie Dough. Each bar has a whopping 20 grams of plant-based brown rice + pea protein, but just 2 grams of net carbs and 1 gram of sugar! To keep those sugar numbers low, No Cow Bars are sweetened with glycerin, erythritol, monk fruit extract and stevia. The erythritolbars2 (and prebiotic fiber) may be an issue for those with IBS  or similar digestive issues – just a heads up!
Serving size: one bar
Calories: 170  Fat:4.5 gm   Carbs: 25 gm   Fiber: 19 gm (4 gm sugar alcohols)    Protein 20 gm    Sodium: 200 mg

 

 

 

Mediterra Savory Bars
(Spotted at Fresh & Co)  These savory bars are a refreshing change from all the sweet tasting energy bars. They are packed with wholesome ingredients. Here are 2 sample flavors:Unknown

Tasty Dressings and Marinades
(Found at Whole Foods). No more boring salads and plain cooked meat! Use these dressings as a sauce for cooked chicken/meat/fish/veggie or to jazz up your salad. There are numerous dressing available. I picked a few of my favorite ones:

IMG_1831Carrot Ginger Dressing by Whole Foods (no oil) Eat Well Feel Great   Serving size: 2 Tablespoons   Calories:40   Fat: 0  Carbs:7   Fiber: 0  Protein:0    Sodium:95 mg

Fresh Avocado Vinaigrette Dressing by Cindy’s Kitchen  Serving size: 2 Tablespoons  Calories:60   Fat: 5  Carbs:4   Fiber:0  Protein: 0   Sodium:210 mg

 

 

 

Sahale  Snacks.
Delicious little on-the-go snacks with nuts, naturally dried, preservative-free fruit and other ingredients like honey, lemongrass, chipotle chili, and pure ground Madagascar vanilla beans. I found them at Morton Willams as FullSizeRenderwell as random delis in NYC.  7 different flavors including:
Berry Macaroon (dried blueberries, coconut, almonds)
Mango Tango (dried mango, almonds)
Raspberry Crumble (dried raspberries, cashews)
Serving size: one packet (nutrition content varies) ~ Calories 210  Fat: 15 gm  Carbs: 19 gm Fiber: 3 gm  Protein: 5 gm  Sodium: 105 mg

 

 

 

Flavored vinegars
Flavored vinegars  are one of my favorite ways to add flavor and zest to vegetables, salads, sauces, and marinades. I have a whole collection of them! They add minimal calories, sodium or carbs (but of the fruit vinegars do contain carbs so be sure to read labels if you need to be very strict with carb intake). Some of my favorite flavored vinegars are: pear, raspberry, fig, pomegranate, ginger, honey white balsamic and honey apple. IMG_1799
