  3. Everything but the bagel seasoning (1 tablespoon): Seasonings like everything but the bagel seasoning are typically very low in calories and SmartPoints. Let’s estimate it at 0 SmartPoints.
  4. Avocado (1 small, sliced): Avocado is a healthy fat and is assigned a relatively low number of SmartPoints. Let’s estimate it at around 4 SmartPoints for a small avocado.
  5. Assorted peppers (1/2 cup, diced): Peppers are low in calories and SmartPoints. Let’s estimate it at around 0 SmartPoints.
