Watch Out for These Chips!

I have recently been using a calorie counting app on my newly repaired iPhone called Lose It. This has given me a greater perspective on everything that I put in my mouth on a daily basis, often causing me to think twice about my calorie choices. For this reason, I decided to check out some information online about the worst chips that you could eat since I wanted to still integrate chips into my diet a few days a week. What I found was somewhat shocking!

The worst potato chips on the market are the Boulder Canyon Malt Vinegar and Sea Salt chips. They claim to be natural, but they have more than twice as the sodium as many leading brands on the market. Instead, it is better to try a low-sodium alternative, like Popchips Salt and Pepper. Another top choice to avoid is Ruffles Cheddar and Sour Cream chips, which are full of fried potato calories. Instead, Baked! Lays Barbecue Flavored chips would be a healthier choice with full flavor and barbecue goodness. The bottom line is that you have to think through everything that you eat on a daily basis so that you can make smarter choices while still enjoying delicious foods.
