The Food Blogger’s Diet and a Giveaway
When you love food, love to cook and also love to eat, it’s easy to put on a few pounds. It’s even harder for Food Bloggers we love to share what we cook with others and we are also tempted by all those challenges we take part in.
As Spring is definitely here, I have decided that it is time to do something about those extra inches so I will be bringing you recipes and food ideas that are lower in calories, lower in fat and suitable to eat when trying to reduce your weight. This won’t be ‘a diet’ and I won’t be boring you with details of how I’m getting on, but I will be sharing the recipes.
I was lucky enough to be offered the chance to try Popchips and to offer a hamper containing a selection of 24 packs as a Giveaway to one lucky winner. These snacks are ‘popped’ using heat and pressure rather than fried or baked, which means that they have less than half the fat and fewer calories than the usual type of crisps. There are less than 100 calories for more than 17 crisps in each 23g bag which sells for 69p. There are five different flavours: original; barbeque; sour cream and chives; salt and pepper; sea salt and vinegar.
So what are they like? As you can see in the photo at the top, they look pretty much like the usual puffed potato snacks, however they are not greasy and there are no artifical flavours. You can buy Popchips at Waitrose and online from ocado.com
I do think they are quite expensive for what they are, but I did enjoy the Popchips
, particularly the Original flavour and compared to some other low calorie snacks they definitely have a more natural taste. Enter my giveaway to try them for yourself.
This Giveaway is open to UK residents only
More information about Popchips is available on their website popchips.co.uk
