Soooooy Crunchy

In trying to help my mother lose weight, I am always on the hunt to find diet-friendly chips to satisfy her "need for crunch." The problem with most chips is it's hard to eat just one (or two, or three, or four...), and most chips are just empty calories, so if you're actually hungry, grabbing a bag of chips is sort of a waste. When I look for chips of any sort, I try to find ones with at least 2 or 3 grams of protein and fiber per serving (usually 1oz is a serving), and Glenny's Soy crisps definitely fit the bill!

Soy crisps in general are a pretty safe pick as far as chips go, as the soy they are made with packs a decent amount of protein. And the best part is these chips can often be found in your local supermarket! While Glenny's BBQ and Caramel soy crisps are my personal fav, Genisoy also makes delicious BBQ soy crisps (among other flavors) which boast decent stats, but for someone like my mom, the 140 calorie pre-portioned bags that Glenny's offers are perfect- this way if she eats the whole bag, it's not a diet disaster! And if you're having trouble locating them, there is always the option to order online!

Feelin' Frisky? Check your local supermarket to see if they make a knock-off soy crisp by their own brand. Stop & Shop's Nature Made brand soy crisps are actually delicious- even better than Genisoy in my opinion! Pin It
