Eat These Chips!

fishandchipsWhen I was growing up, Arthur Treacher’s Fish and Chips was a popular fast food franchise.  Eating fast food fish was praised as a healthy choice.  Here’s the breakdown for the standard Fish & Chips dinner:

1590 calories, 86 g of fat, 95 mg cholesterol, 2980 mg sodium, 163 g carbs, 10 g fiber, 44 g sugar, 34 g protein, A, C, Calcium, Iron, 15, 20, 25, 35% respectively.  (Taken from the Arthur Treacher’s website).

Today, I had a grilled, whole trout, a cup of mixed baby greens, and root chips.

298 calories, 14 g of fat, 50 mg cholesterol, 155 mg sodium, 22 g carbs, 5 g fiber, 2 g sugar, 20 g protein, A, C, Calcium, Iron, 203, 108, 10, 14% respectively.

Of course, there’s no comparison and you know what the right choice is.  But the big surprise is the tasty root chips, packed with flavor, crunch, and tons vitamins and minerals, as compared with potatoes.  Root vegetables are a staple in the paleo diet, along with leafy greens and fish.

  1. Are those Root Chips the Ones from Terra brand? I love their Sweet Potato chips but I try not to eat them too much since they are made with non-Paleo canola oil. And also when I open a bag I can’t stop eating them LOL!
