I like going to the movies.
When I do, I order popcorn. It’s my treat, my vice, my salt lick.
Ironically, I saw the movie Salt today.
(Jolie is amazing, the movie, “meh”.)
In my small popcorn, there were 225 calories, of which, 105 were from fat. I consumed 150 milligrams of sodium and 26 grams of carbs.
I guess I should reconsider my snack at the movies.
Consider the following alternatives for mindless movie snacking:
- 1 apple cut into slices dipped into 1T peanut butter
- sliced bell pepper with 2T hummus
- small bag of popchips
- 1/2 cup trail mix with m&m’s mixed in
- 1T almond butter with 2 graham crackers
Much better bang for your buck, don’t you think? I should practice what I preach!!
