Bethenny LOVES her snacks, and she is able to approach snacking responsibly by paying attention not only to ingredients but also to calories per unit of volume. While calories can be the number one thing we look at, volume is just as important when deciding what snack foods you are eating.
Bethenny believes that, when making food choices, think healthy and high volume, as those foods will be the best “good investment” foods to fuel your body. With mentions of this in Naturally Thin, this simply means the amount of food we need to feel full is based on the volume of food we eat rather than the calories.
We have taken the nutritional information on the packages and calculated the calories per ounce in the snack foods found in Bethenny’s pantry. Chances are these are things you have in your pantry as well!
Skinnygirl Popcorn – 122 calories per oz
Veggie Straws – 134 calories per oz
Goldfish – 140 calories per oz
Pirate Booty – 140 calories per oz
Potato chips – 148 calories per oz
Don’t let those marketing tactics fool you, while having a snack full of veggies might be the best choice, we understand that sometimes you just want something salty or sweet. This is where Skinnygirl popcorn comes in as a high volume, low-calorie option. As you can see, paying attention to the nutrition panel of snacks is key. See below for more snack food comparisons, seeing which snack wins when it comes to calories per ounce!
