The 100 Healthiest New Food Products of 2019
Americans are getting smart about what we’re putting into our bodies, and food manufacturers are listening.
Luckily for us, the products we can buy in grocery stores are reflecting all of these changes. And if you’ve walked into a grocery store at all in 2019, you know what’s coming: high-protein, low-sugar, plant-based, dairy-free foods. But just because a product meets these buzzwords, it doesn’t necessarily make it good for you.
That’s why our researchers at Eat This, Not That! compiled a list of some of our favorite healthy groceries that were introduced to grocery store shelves in 2019. These new essentials will help you snack smarter, meal prep more easily, and stick to your healthy eating plan all throughout the year.
We’ve done all the groundwork, so all you’ll have to do is add these 100 healthiest food products in 2019 to your next shopping list.

Just the Cheese Baked Cheese Bars, Grilled Cheese
Unlike other cheese crisp snacks, Just the Cheese is oven-baked, which caramelizes the cheese for a cheesier flavor and crunchier texture. Use these low-carb, high-protein cheese bars as a snack on their own when you’re on the go, or pair them with apples for an added serving of fiber.
Tru Fru Indulge on the Go Grab and Go Packs, Real Raspberries
Unlike the oil-soaked fruit juice concentrate that traditional chocolate-covered fruit snacks use, 100% real, freeze-dried fruit is the star of tru fru’s bites. Each whole, freeze-dried raspberry (rich in antioxidants and high in nutrients) is cloaked in a hearty layer of sustainably-sourced dark chocolate. The result is a snack with 6 fewer grams of sugar and real ingredients—you won’t find any corn syrup or canola oil here.

Each pack serves up 2 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein for nearly half the sugar you’d get if you grabbed a bag of Pop-Tarts. These don’t come frosted, so take the liberty of adding your topping of choice: peanut butter, chocolate hazelnut spread, or even a thick Greek yogurt mixed with a touch of lemon juice.
Daily Harvest Spinach + Shiitake Grits
The savory breakfast train is here and we’re all for it. Daily Harvest—a frozen meal subscription service—will send you this heat-and-eat cup of millet grits with mushrooms and spinach that tastes decadent, but is a nutritional powerhouse, providing 5 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein per cup.

We found the healthiest dairy alternatives for those looking to cut back on dairy as well as the most innovative dairy products of the year.
Wallaby Organic No Sugar Added Aussie Greek, Strawberry Rose
Right on the heels of siggi’s launch of the first no-sugar-added yogurt last year, Wallaby is hopping on the no-sugar-added yogurt trend. Their Strawberry Rose yogurt is sweetened only by organic fruit and kicks the dairy yogurt game up a notch by using all organic ingredients, including organic milk.
Califia Farms Ubermilk, Vanilla Unsweetened
What makes this milk Über? It’s that unlike other dairy-free alternatives that are often lacking in the protein department, Califia Farms bumps up the muscle-building macronutrient content with the addition of pea protein.
Two Good Blueberry
Thanks to a novel slow-straining process, Danone was able to get the sugar content of their dairy yogurt down to a measly 2 grams of sugar, whereas your standard dairy yogurt usually can only go down to 4 grams due to naturally-occuring sugars (lactose) in milk. The result is a low-sugar, protein-packed Greek yogurt.

Nancy’s Probiotic Oatmilk Yogurt, Blueberry
Oatmilk is trending, and for good reason. The milk alternative is creamier than the nut-based products we’ve become accustomed to, which makes it the perfect base for a yogurt. Nancy’s is the first oatmilk non-dairy yogurt to launch in the U.S. and it might also be the best. It comes packed with gut-friendly probiotics and 6 grams of faba bean protein.
Horizon Organic Protein Milk, Reduced Fat
If you’re looking for an organic high-protein milk, Horizon has you covered. This sip contains 50 percent more protein per 8-ounce serving than traditional dairy milk offerings.

The rest of these chips are Brussels sprout powder and kale powder, sunflower oil, and Himalayan pink salt.

Do away with that feeling of regret after making your way through a huge bag of empty-calorie cheese snacks. Instead, grab a bag of Peatos.
