Healthy crunchy snacks
Here at Snack Spy HQ, we always keep an assortment of chips and popcorn on hand to power us through stressful afternoons—the carbs give us a quick hit of energy while the crunch instantly eases tension. So when a nutritionist mentioned that snacks made with coconut oil could also speed slimming, we were intrigued. Turns out, the medium-chain triglycerides in coconut oil prod the thyroid to produce more metabolism-revving hormones—an effect shown to help women burn an extra 190 calories per day. That’s a perk we need to cash in on, so we took another trip down the snack aisle and came up with some delicious offerings made with coconut oil. Score!
