~Cheese Wiz: It contains natural transfat; known as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which has anti-cancer attributes. Cheese Wiz has more of this cancer-fighting compound than any regular cheese.
~Pork Rinds: 1 oz provides a whopping 17 grams of protein (9x protein than a serving of potatoe chips). It is composed of a healthy fat called oleic acid commonly found in olive oil along with stearic acid, a type of saturated fat that doesn’t raise blood cholesterol.
~Hot Sauce: With our snacks, flavors are important – from putting spice on our popcorn to our favorite chips, hot sauce is the #1 ingredient and it helps you lose weight. Capsicin in hot sauce, curbs appetites by reducing levels of the hunger hormone, gherin and raising levels of GLP-1, an appetite suppressing hormone.
~Popcorn: Low in nutrition and calories but increases levels of polyphenols. It has antioxidants that protect against heart-disease and certain cancers. Popcorn has the highest level of polyphenol out of all snack foods.
~ Chocolate: Heart healthy (Polyphenols) compound found in red/wine and green tea is a very high component of this snack loving favorite.
~Sourcream: Low in sodium. A couple of tablespoons is only 52 calories and around 2 grams of fat;less than a 12oz glass of 2% reduced fat milk.
