“Tuna sandwiches are one of my go-to lunches, and they just got a major upgrade with Fishwife’s Albacore Tuna in Olive Oil. Each can is packed with a high-quality tuna filet under a glossy layer of luscious olive oil. The tuna is tender, buttery, and flakey with a flavor and texture far exceeding any canned tuna I’ve ever had. If you like it hot, Fishwife also has a spicy version that seasons the fish with hot paprika, cayenne, white pepper, and garlic. I made this tuna into a tuna salad with salty capers, briny olives, and sweet pickles, but you can also enjoy it on its own with chips, on a bed of lettuce with an acidic vinaigrette, or folded into lemon pasta.” — Olivia Tarantino, Managing Editor

Because there are already beans, veggies, and plenty of flavoring, all you have to do is add them to some rice, and you have a tasty meal.” — Boesch

It now uses avocado oil as its main oil, which provides a ton of healthy monounsaturated fats, and the sodium levels have been reduced by 20% from the original recipe. I’ve always loved the original Beyond Burger as a way to lower my intake of red meat and saturated fat, so I was so excited about this new release from a brand I trust.” — Boesch

“Chocolate and hazelnut is one of the best flavor combinations of all time, but it’s hard to justify consuming 21 grams of sugar in a 2-tablespoon serving of Nutella. That’s where Chosen Foods’ new Chocolate Hazelnut Spread comes in. It has all the nutty, chocolatey flavor I crave, but with almost half the sugar of Nutella, which makes my healthy dessert of chocolate-dipped strawberries even more satisfying.” — Tarantino

“Graza changed the extra virgin olive oil game with the launch of their squeeze bottles back in 2022, and they did it again with these beer can refills that launched in May 2024. My pantry is always stocked with backups in case I ever run out of food during cooking, and these refills are a welcome addition to my pantry. They’re nitrogen-sealed, meaning the olive oil will stay fresh for longer by preventing oxidation, and perfectly portioned to refill Graza’s squeeze bottles.” — Tarantino

“I don’t really have a sweet tooth, but that doesn’t stop me from occasionally craving chocolate. I recently tried Spring & Mulberry’s Mulberry Fennel chocolate bar and fell in love. This 72% cacao bar is sweetened with dates—and that’s it. Zero refined sugars. Paired with mulberries, the dates add just the right amount of sweetness to complement the licorice flavor of fennel. And perhaps my favorite feature is the 3 grams of fiber you get in each serving, which totals 11% of your daily recommended intake of the under-consumed nutrient.” — Tarantino
