Popchips Healthy Snacking Tips and giveaway

Monday, 8 April 2013

Never fried and never baked, popchips are popped just like popcorn. They have all the flavour but half the fat of fried crisps and less than 100 calories per serving. Sounds good right? Where Are My Knees have one case of 24 mixed flavours to give away. 

The Where Are My Knees team have tried them (our favourites are the barbeque and thai sweet chilli) and they make a super tasty and guilt free snack. The Popchips pledge is: 'no fake colours, no fake flavours, no preservatives, no fluorescent orange fingertips, and no wiping your greasy chip hand on your jeans' so swapping your regular bag of crisps for a bag of popchips would be a smart move.




Consultant Nutritionist & Registered
Dietitian
,
Azmina Govindji RD MBDA has the following snacking advice:

  1.  Regular meals and healthy snacks help you to stay energised and avoid binge eating. 
  2. A cup of hot soup or diet hot choc works wonders  - great, filling comfort food! 
  3. When you’re on the go, make sure you have lower fat treats in the car or in your bag. Planning ahead can reduce those unhealthy impulse buys. Pack some popchips, a packet of nuts and raisins or some dried fruit the night before… 
  4. A colourful array of fruits and veggies gives you essential nutrients that help your energy levels and immune system.  
  5. Sometimes you’re not hungry but just need something to crunch. Keep a snack attack box in your fridge – e.g. carrot sticks, olives, cucumber sticks, cherry tomatoes, radishes, pickled onions.  

    Alternatively, try distracting yourself by doing something completely different like making a phone call or going for a walk
    – taking your mind off food will help to curb your craving.
Snack Swaps 

Instead of 
Choose 
Why? 
Regular crisps 
popchips 
Neither baked nor fried! Choosing popchips makes sure you’re getting around half the fat. 
Regular hot chocolate with cream 
Diet hot choc made with skimmed milk, sprinkle on a little cocoa powder 
Skimmed milk is 0% fat yet in a hot drink it still adds creaminess, colour and flavour. Using a diet choc powder helps you cut down on sugar too. 
Chocolate bar 
Jaffa cakes 
Jaffa cakes are lighter than regular chocolate. 
Sugar-rich breakfast cereal 
Bowl of porridge made with semi skimmed milk and dash of honey 
Oats can help reduce your blood cholesterol and a little honey is likely to give you far less sugar than many breakfast cereals.  



If you want to win the case of Popchips just leave a comment with your contact details below. For an extra entry you can follow @WhereAreMyKnees on twitter and let us know that you have done this in a comment on this post. The giveaway will end on the 18th of April at 9pm.

  25. Oh what a great competiion, I love Popchips - I think the barbeque flavour are my favourites. Although I'd be quite concerned about how quickly I'd get through 24 packs...!

    1. Hi John

      They are really tasty! I have bought them in Waitrose, Sainsburys and Boots before. Think they are quite widely available now, hope this helps.
