4 Healthy Party Snacks That We Just Can’t Stop Eating
Don’t let a junk-food craving derail your healthy lifestyle. We taste-tested healthy party snacks just for you. (OK, maybe for us, but mostly for you.)
Chew on these facts before you pick up healthy party snacks!
A 50-gram serving of cheese puffs (25 to 30 puffs) has 310 calories, 23 grams of fat and 380 milligrams of sodium. Plain potato chips are only slightly better: 280 calories, 18 grams fat, 330 milligrams sodium. So we found options that, while not exactly health foods, cut at least half the fat-but still taste good.
Healthy party snacks: Multigrain chips
Made with whole-grain flours, they have great crunch and a spicy taste. A 50-g serving (29 chips) has 240 calories, 9 g fat and 240 mg sodium. Pass the bag!
Healthy party snacks: Spiced tortilla chips
We tried baked organic corn chips coated with chili, paprika and turmeric spices. The heat builds as you munch (yum!). A 50-g serving (32 chips) has 210 calories, 5 g fat and 360 mg sodium. No salsa required.
Healthy party snacks: blue potato chips
“Wow” is what we all said when we bit into these thick chips made from blue potatoes. They’re satisfying, yet are the lowest-sodium chips we found. A 50-g serving (21 chips) has 230 calories, 9 g fat and 90 mg sodium. We’re already hooked.
Healthy party snacks: Baked cheese puffs
These may have a neon-bright orange colour, but they’re so yummy and crunchy you’ll conveniently forget all about that. A 50-g serving (60 pieces) has 230 calories, 9 g fat and 430 mg sodium. You might even want
to lick your fingers.
