5 Tips for Happy Snacking
I'll will be completely honest with you about this, I happen to like potato chips. I rarely eat them because I try to avoid the calories/fat but when I do eat potato chips, I savor every single moment of them. And then I feel guilty afterwards.
Green Giant™ Veggie Snack Chips are something new that I have tried lately. At first, when I saw the word Veggie, I automatically dismissed these chips because I thought that they wouldn't be a good substitute for chips.
However, my son opened the bag and tried them right away. He LOVED them and I thought that they smelled great so I decided to give them a try. I loved them so much that I might not buy chips again. The Green Giant Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips in Garden Ranch are my new favorite snack.
Note how the bag is all crinkled. My three children ate the entire bag over the course of a few days and then tried to hide the evidence. But I found them out!
We tried out the Green Giant™ Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chip – Garden Ranch and Green Giant Multigrain Sweet Potato Chip – Barbecue. They have so many great flavors that your snacking options are endless.
So I admit it, I live in a family of snackers. But there are several rules that we follow in order to snack happily.
5 TIPS FOR SNACKING HAPPILY
1. Everything in Moderation.
Read the labels and learn what a portion size is for the snack you are eating.
2. Pick Your Favorites.
I tend to not try too many new snacks because I am familiar with what I eat. I always have a few favorites on hand to snack when I feel the urge.
3. Drinks Lots of Water.
Every time I have any snack, I always eat it while drinking a big glass of water. I feel fuller and rarely eat as much as I would without water.
4. Take Small Bites and Eat Small Portions.
The smaller the bite, the longer it takes to eat. I always slow down and take the smallest bites possible along with a small portion.
5. Chew Everything Many Times
This is key for me. You want your food to be completely chewed. Most people don't chew enough.
