Super Bowl Sunday is a time for lots of junk food while you’re watching the game, so it can be painful when you’re on a salt, fat and/or sugar-restricted diet. I wrote last year about some alternatives I’d found that included salt-fee chips.
This year, I’ve tested out a new variety of salt-free potato chips that I found at Whole Foods, Michael Season’s. I tried two varieties, Herb Garden Ranch and Asian Bar-b-que. The barbecue variety tasted less sugary than other similar chips, a good thing if you’re watching your sugar.
The nutrition breakdown, 17 chips has 140 calories and 7 grams of fat but only 10 mgs of salt. The fat content is still a little high so I have to limit my intake of these, but they were extremely tasty for being unsalted. I’d recommend them for game day, if you can find them. The company website suggests trying Kroger stores as well as Whole Foods and Amazon sells them too.
I don’t have Super Bowl parties at my house any longer because I don’t want to subject guests to my restricted diet. But I do plan to make low-fat stuffed shells for my wife and I using whole wheat pasta and my home-made low-salt tomato sauce along with low-fat cheese. We’ll make enough to freeze for more meals too, an example of cooking for multiple occasions to save myself some time down the road.
Happy Game Day!
