Go Soy! Glennys Soy CrispsPosted by foodforthought
Some brands have become synonymous with healthier snacking. Since the arrival of Glenny’s brand snacks on store shelves, the company served as an innovator to turn common snacks into healthier options. One of the most innovative for its time were the soy crisp varieties, a model other brands have since tried to copy. But is the seemingly healthier chip truly better for you?
The answer is almost unequivocally, yes. Out of all the healthier chip options I have reviewed or are out there on the market, the soy crisps are the best option. Not only as a substitute for the potato chip, but as some varieties, like the apple cinnamon flavor, make for a great substitution for that something sweet as well. The flavor reminds me of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, a breakfast cereal with a lot more sugar and calories per serving. One bag gives you 9 grams of soy protein, 3 grams of fiber for a low amount of sodium (180 mg), fat (3 grams) and calories (140 grams). I have also used their sea salt and salt and pepper flavors as a substitute for melba toasts with tuna or hummus spreads. So not only can you satisfy your need for the munchies, but perhaps utilize it in place of other sweet or higher calorie choices in meals. Their price is also relatively comparable to the snack food category as opposed to the health food standard, and many stores put them on sale.
Food for Thought:
What Glenny’s Soy Chips did was more than become an alternative to the potato chip, which might have been their initial goal, but they have opened the door for soy chips to serve as a tasty and satisfying, healthier substitution for a lot more than just a snack craving. Think outside the box with these soy chips….what do you substitute Glennys Soy Crisps for in your meals or snacks?
