Our No Fast Food WeekThanks to The Real Deal Snacks for sponsoring this post.
Last week, I challenged the hubby and myself (and by default, the kids) to a week without fast food. The reason was twofold. First, to save money. Second, to eat healthier, and change our "lets just get fast food" habit.
By the end of the week, the hubby had lost 5 lbs, and I had lost 3 lbs. Certainly a huge success as far as I'm concerned. At the end of the week, we did have a cheat meal from Dairy Queen... and on top of it being only moderately tasty, my weight had gone up the next day. Not cool. So, I'm back on the no fast food challenge again. This time, it will be for two weeks, and I'm confident that I can do it.
Having quick meals at homemade it easier to say no to fast food. It was also great to have some veggie chips on hand as a late night snack.
These Veggie Chips from The Real Deal Snacks are hands-down my favorite ships. I'm partial to the sriracha flavored ones. They pack a huge flavor punch, and the 100 calorie bags give you the perfect amount, so you don't need to worry about eating too many.
They are made with 51% real green peas, corn and rice – and there’s a serving and a half of vegetables in every once!! They come in 3 great-tasting varieties (Original, Sriracha and Aged White Cheddar) and they are gluten-free, kosher, non-GMO and have 80% less fat than potato chips. Oh, and did I mention how absolutely amazing they taste? Healthy and delicious don't always go together... but they do here!
