Everyone has their favorite treat. I happen to love potato chips.
A reader sent me an e-mail asking for ideas to help her stop eating them. Fortunately, I had thought a lot about this topic.
My first line of defense for overindulging has been to buy Cape Cod 40% Reduced Fat Kettle Cooked Chips. For one serving of 140 calories, you can eat 19 chips. I like the flavor and the crunch (and they taste the same to me as regular chips).
BUT, this reader wanted to move on from potato chips and I hear her. I like to crunch on vegetables whenever possible when eating a snack. Some of the ideas below take a little more work than opening a bag of chips, but it is worth it for your health, right?
1. Sliced cucumbers with salt on the side for sprinkling.
2. Carrot sticks and hummus.
What do you eat instead of potato chips? Please share.
