Sweets for the Heart

Even the healthiest of eaters have a hard time compromising a sweet craving with nutrition and, most importantly, taste.

A sugar-free Atkins bar is not a comparable replacement to real chocolate (which, even when made with 70% cocoa, needs sugar to taste good).

Similarly, fat-free ice cream is a tasteless, watery concoction unworthy of the “ice cream” moniker.

So where does one turn? Well, if you’re a caramel fiend like myself, look no further than Glenny’s Caramel “sweetheart” Soy Crisps.

Although they are advertised as heart-shaped, that romantic notion appears to have gone out the door, as all the crisps are a more standard round shape.

Each 1.3 ounce bag packs a mere 140 calories, 3 grams of fat, and 4 grams (1.3 teaspoons) of added sugar (no artificial sweeteners here!).

Even better? They are completely free of saturated and trans fats!

As an extra bonus, you get 3 grams of fiber and 9 grams of protein.

That’s what I call a sweet deal.
