2. Hidden Veggies

Ark Foods Cauli Mac + Cheese

Tastier than a bag of crudités, this is a great way to crowbar extra veg into your diet. The 140-calorie heat-and-eat dish has a big helping of vitamin C and fiber. For best results, add hot sauce.

3. Red Meat Swap

Pan’s Mushroom Jerky

If lunch was heavy on animal protein, opt for a light, nutritious snack. Mushrooms are meaty and carry umami flavor, making them a good stand-in for beef. Plus, ’shrooms contain more filling fiber.

Goodfish Crispy Salmon Skins

Environmentally friendly, these chips use Alaskan salmon skins that are a by-product of fishing. They undergo a proprietary frying process to retain omega-3 fat, which cold-water fish are coveted for.
