Trader Joe’s has become known for getting even the pickiest of us to eat our cauliflower. (Seriously, if you haven’t tried their riced cauliflower yet, go buy some now.) Their latest concoction, a low-carb, wheat-, sugar-, dairy-, and egg-free version of the Italian dumpling, is sure to be another hit.

Love pasta, but hate the carbs? Just substitute the cauliflower gnocchi for the traditional potato-based dumplings in this tomato sauce dish and you won’t even miss the extra fat and calories.
Organic Pepper Jack Cheese
This cheese from California and Wisconsin is made by adding organic green and red jalapeño peppers brined in organic vinegar and salt during the cheesemaking process. It’s great for burgers, pairing with sliced meat and crackers, or even by itself.

Shred up this peppery cheese and sprinkle it over the top of some tortilla chips and beans and settle in for family movie night. We recommend adding sides of sour cream, guacamole, and pico de gallo for extra flavor!
