One of the things I treat myself to once a week is a handful of chips. I usually have a hankering for something salty and most days I will have a handful of nuts that are lightly salted because they are good for you (usually almonds, cashews or pistachios are what I have on hand). But I LOVE chips....so if I've been good with my eating plan I treat myself to a handful of yummy salted chips.
My #1 fave are Kettle Chips with sea salt...mmmmmm YUM!
However I have 2 new favorites that I "try" to keep stocked...I mean try because my family usually eats them all up before I have my 2nd handful!
No none of them are Paleo approved...sorry...but I've gone into a more modified version of Paleo. I try to follow it 80% of the week and if I've been good I get a cheat meal and a cheat snack. So far it has worked well and I've dropped 16 pounds since I started. Next week I am starting low-impact exercise again now that the doctor says I can. So that means treadmill walks and light weights for a few weeks to get myself going again. Then I hope to begin my Pilates and Kickboxing again.
OMGosh if you love Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant (like my boys) then you will love these. They taste just like a hot wing and have just enough kick to keep you interested but not set your entire mouth aflame. I've had 2 handfuls out of 2 bags because the two boys in my house gobble them up...I might have to hide a bag LOL!
And then there are these Lays Garlic Bread flavored chips. And yes they are pretty reminiscent of real garlic bread without the warm butter dripping down your chin :) We discovered these down in South Carolina over Spring Break and were happy to see our local stores now carry them too! If you can't have the garlic bread this is a good treat to have to get the flavor.
No I don't know how much fat or calories are in 8-10 chips once a week...nor do I care to know LOL!
Everything in moderation.....
And when I have a sugar hankering I either eat a square of dark chocolate or have some
Gummi Bears. The dark chocolate is GOOD for you & the Gummi Bears have few calories and no fat. I love this brand of gummies the best...they are a bit more chewy than others so they keep your mouth busier longer. That means you eat less of them....I think!
What is your favorite treat to eat?
