Weight watchers chips

Postby Fiona25 » Wed Feb 27, 2008 12:47 pm

I don't know how long they've been out but I only found them in the supermarket yesterday :P

I'm going to be having a serve (approx 8-10 chips) with my fish and salad tonight for dinner! Naughty me eating carbs at night but i'm going to live a little :wink: :)

So for anyone that is interested here are the nutritional stats:

115gram serve

Calories - 152

Fat - 3 grams

Protein - 2.4 grams

Carbs - 26.5 grams

Fibre - 3.6 grams

Not too bad considering they're hot chips - yummo!
Saying goodbye to calorie counting AND scales for a while.

WW do a sour cream as well, :D sweet chilli sauce isnt all that bad either if your not using much. I can tell you what they are in WW points, but that doesnt mean much for calorie counters! LOL

Let me know what you think of them Ali and i'll report back too :D

I'm sure you can find a 'light' sweet chilli sauce too!

I'm so going to get some light sour cream and SWC when I go shopping next and am going to have wedges too one day :D

Isn't it amazing how you slowly figure out that you CAN enjoy your favourite foods in a much healthier way?

Chips - pita chips

Ice - cream - light and creamy

Chocolate - low carb varities such as atkins or darrell lea sugar/carb free or small servings such as fun sized smarties, freddos etc

Cheese - lots of low fat varieties

Yoghurt - I've just found the non fat yoplait for me range and YUM! Only something like 70-80 calories for 175grams :shock:

Dips - the philli ones are great and very low in fat

Peanut butter - still high in fat but the light ones are ok

Bread - 100 calorie wraps are great

Meat - lots of lean, heart smart stuff out there

Jelly - sugar free diet jelly!

And so much other stuff, I get so excited when I find a fave food in a low cal variety :D

Yup, there is a light sweet chilli sauce. Look in the asian foods section. It's delish :D It's "Ayam" brand and has a yellow label. It's only 80kJ per 100g :)

OK, i went shopping and saw the WW wedges, etc but didn't get them....I still dont want to eat carbs for dinner and knew I wouldn't be able to resist if i bought them....so, I'm going back on Saturday to have them for lunch (after the gym)! YUM!!

Oh - and Fi...I found the 100 cal wraps (multi grain!) so I'm having one of them for lunch tomorrow!! YUM again!

I LOVE THIS SITE!!!

Well I had my chips last night and YUM :D

Thanks for the heads up on the sauce Em!

I actually compared the WW chips to some woolies crinkle cut ones I have and while they're slightly higher in fat, they're MUCH lower in salt, so they may even be the better way to go?? Only an extra 60kj or something per 100grams.

I'm so going to have wedges with light SWC and light sour cream next week - yum!!!

I've decided since this is the first weekend I have 'off' for so long, I'm going to work my butt off!!

I'm going to do my work out at the gym then clean, clean, clean (ready to pack up and move) so I'm going to treat myself to the WW Wedges with WW Sour Cream and Sweet Chilli Sauce....YUM!!!

Something needs to get me through my house work!! Haha! :lol:

Fiona, I just had my 100 cal multigrain wrap for lunch. When I was making it last night, I wasn't overly impressed - I thought it might be a little cardboard like.

I put ham, a kraft free singles slice, avocado and lettuce on it (was lacking imagination)....and OMG - it rocked!!! I'd love to have another one cos it was so nice (even though I can't cos I'm at work and only bought one) but I think after 15 minutes or so, I'll be quite content!

200 cals all up!

THANK YOU for the heads up on that one!! YUM! I love this forum more and more everyday! :mrgreen:

Ali the only thing that sucks about the wraps is that they don't fill me up much!

I tell you what rocks on them though. Lettuce, cheese, WW grilled bacon, avocado and tomato - YUM!!! You can also go all out and put a few slices of 40% less fat salami on them!

I make my own chips and wedges.

I cut up 1 medium potato in to thin strips for the chips and into wedge chunks for the wedges. I then place the cut potato in a microwave proof container and boil them to soften the potato, once boiled, lightly spray with crisco cooking oil spray and sprinkle with paprika and put them in the oven.
