Trader Joes Falafel with Tahini

20130430-091908.jpg

I’ve been keeping these frozen falafel in my freezer recently and they make a great go-to snack. They aren’t exactly low in WW Points but they are filling and definitely worth it! The frozen falafel costs $3.69 a bag and the tahini sauce is $2.49 (I believe)- this will get you about 4 servings.

WW Points: 9 for 3 falafel and 1 tbsp of tahini

Trader Joe’s Frozen Edamame

My mom turned me on to this frozen edamame from Trader Joe’s. For the past few months, my mom has raved about how it is the perfect go-to snack and how she “always finishes the bag.” Finally, about two weeks ago, I picked up a bag and I am in love! Now, I am buying at least 3 bags every time I go to TJ’s. For $1.69 a bag, why wouldn’t I?

I love that the only ingredients are soybeans and sea salt and that it only takes 2 minutes to defrost- thats right, defrost not cook! The entire bag is less than 400 calories and there is 10g of protein per 1/2 cup serving. It’s also fun to eat! For me, it’s the perfect snack to keep in my purse to snack on while I’m on the train home after a long night working at the restaurant. I usually defrost a cup (2 servings) and it’s the perfect snack.

WW Points: 3 points per 1/2 serving

(5 points for one cup)
