Trade Up Tuesday: Crunchy Veggie Snacks


With only a few days left in March, have you tried a new food this month? Remember we are celebrating National Nutrition Month® and encouraging our guests to Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right.

Today, for our Trade Up, we wanted to show an easy way that you can choose a better-for-you crunchy veggie snack. These are  portable snacks that you can keep at your desk, in the car or in a lunch box. They offer such a great crunch without lots of calories.

Trade Up from:
Daily Crave Veggie Chips
NuVal 10
to
Snapea Crisp Black Pepper
NuVal 55

Take a closer look and see why the Snapea Crisps get a better NuVal score (remember NuVal is one simple number that ranks foods 1-100 with higher scores meaning better nutrition). Ounce for ounce both snacks offer about the same calories and fat but the Snapea Crisps have half the sodium, 5x the fiber and 5x the protein. Fiber and protein also keep us full longer. So while you'd be eating the same amount of calories with either bag, the Snapea Crisps will probably help curb your hunger better.
