A best-selling author, the nutrition expert for Today Show and the name behind a private dietetic practice, you could sayJoy Bauer knows a thing or two about health and nutrition.

Any dieter will confess that cravings are their downfall. You want something chewy, or sweet, or salty, or crunchy. And sometimes- you just have to give in.
Recently, an issue of US Magazine featured actress Eva Mendes saying that sometimes, she just has to have Pringles. I’m not sure which variety of the crave-worthy snacks she indulges in, but here is what Calorie-Count showed for a serving (14 chips) of the original Pringles:
- 160 calories
- 11 grams total fat, 3 grams saturated
- 1 gram protein
The nutritionist Joy Bauer suggested to Eva and other crunchy-cravers that they replace the Pringles and other chips with Glenny’s Soy Chips. Actress Terri Hatcher of Desperate Housewives is a big fan, too! A 1.3oz bag of Glenny’s Soy Chips has less of the bad stuff and more of the good stuff, like:
- 110 calories
- 2 grams fat
- 7 grams protein
Glenny’s Soy Chips come in more than one dozen flavors- sure to satisfy anyone’s craving, whether that be salt and pepper, sea salt, white cheddar, barbecue, caramel, cool ranch or even apple cinnamon.
Check out Glenny’s for other healthier snack options like yummy little 100 calorie brownies, marshmallow treats and snack bars.
