Smart Chicken® Brats:
Smart Chicken® brats are the closest thing you will taste to the “real thing,” without the artery clogging “saturated fat.” No kidding, to me they taste like the real deal! I should know, I am from Wisconsin and I am half-German! Ok so that does not really make me an expert – but it does sound convincing
– right! Now, the true test would be offering one to my grandfather to see if he notices the difference!
Regular brats have around 220 calories, 22g of total fat and 8g saturated fat. Smart Chicken® Brats contain only 160 calories, 7g fat and 2g saturated fat. Quite the difference! Fat is cut by 1/3rd, saturated fat by 1/4th! OK, don’t ask about the sodium – it is still pretty high in the chicken brat!
Additional tip: Fill up on fewer calories and add nutrition by using plenty of grilled vegetables, lettuce, Sauerkraut (if you like it) and whole grain bread! And always, keep your portions in check by only having one brat! This weekend I had my “Smart Chicken® brat” with grilled peppers, onions and mushrooms. Delicious!
Stay tuned for more…
