Just about all of us love to snack. It might be a mid-morning snack to help you make it to lunch, a mid-afternoon snack to boost energy, or an evening snack to curb late-night hunger. No matter when we snack, we often don’t make the wisest of snacking choices.
That afternoon snack might be our favorite candy bar, which might help boost energy due to its sugar content, but it will not keep the hunger away for long and the crash after the initial sugar rush can be more draining than not snacking at all.
Similarly, we often choose potato chips as our evening snack. Many potato chips taste quite good, and they make a convenient snack, since we can simply grab the full bag of chips and enjoy them while watching a movie or our favorite television show. But the problem is we often will eat that full bag of chips, which is definitely not the healthiest. Better options are available.
Soy protein chips can provide a more nutritious and healthier option than regular potato varieties. Lets take a side-by-side look at what’s in a single serving of each. Typical potato chips have about 160 total calories and 90 calories from fat in a single serving, compared to only 100 total calories and 15 calories from fat in a serving of Revival’s Lightly Salted Sunshine baked soy protein chips. A serving of typical potato chips also provides a whopping 10 grams of total fat (16% of our daily recommended value), while a single serving of Revival’s Lightly Salted Sunshine baked soy protein chips contains only 2 grams of total fat. That’s 5 times less fat and over 60% fewer calories! If that isn’t enough, Revival baked soy protein chips provide 7 grams of protein or 14% of our daily value compared to only 2 grams of protein in a serving of typical potato chips. So, baked soy protein chips provide fewer calories, less fat, and more protein than a typical potato chip.
What about compared to a typical baked potato chip, you ask? That is a good question. Typical baked potato chips certainly contain fewer calories and less fat than regular versions, making them closer to baked soy protein chips, but Revival baked soy protein chips still provide about 3 times more protein than a typical baked potato snacks. That can be a critical difference in our snacking habits. One of the reasons we can often sit down and eat through a large bag of typical potato chips is that they are generally not filling. In comparison, the extra protein in baked soy protein chips helps us to feel full. This can be important if we are trying to control our calorie intake.
So the next time you reach for a bag of chips to go with your favorite movie, consider baked soy protein chips… the choice is easy!
