Okay, so I'm in week 3 of my "Couch to 5K" running program, and it's going really well. And of course I'm doing my best to eat well, without killing myself. Over the long weekend, I kept my alcohol intake to 1 glass of wine, and 1 mimosa. Not bad for 4 days at the beach. I also only had 4 onion rings and 1/2 a raspberry shake when we hit up the classic Lakeview Drive In (which is a tradition, and far be it for me to stand in the way of tradition).
So this week, I'm working really hard to keep the momentum going. I went to Safeway today for lunch, to grab a bag salad. You may have seen their new-ish brand, Eating Right. They have really got the basics down, and now have some fun snacks that are not at all bad for you.
So I grabbed a bag of the awesome (and my new favorite snack of summer) Sour Cream and Onion Soy Crisps.
Oh god, are they good! You can have 17 of the delicious and tasty rounds, for a mere 110 calories! WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT?! I know, right?!?!?!
And, what's even better is that there's 7 grams of protein in each serving, and only 15 grams of carbohydrates. Plus, you're getting the obvious benefit of the soy, with only 3 grams of fat.
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE, SOY CRISPS?
They have like 5 flavors, but so far I've only got the sour cream and onion.
Oh yeah, there's also 2 grams of fiber. and they're only like $2.19 a bag. and there's 3.5 servings per bag.
Suck it, chips, I'm dating someone new, maybe you're heard of him, his name is Soy Crisps.
