Healthy or Not? Starkist Chicken Creations

When you see the name StarKist you may think tuna, but have you heard of their new Chicken Creations?  With only 70 to 90 calories and 9 to 10 grams of protein, this is a great grab-and-go snack when you’re short on time and looking for something to keep you fueled and satisfied.  With flavors like Buffalo Style, Chicken Salad, Ginger Soy, and Zesty Lemon Pepper, there is something for everyone’s taste buds. Keep in mind that the Buffalo Style and Ginger Soy flavors are considered high in sodium so be mindful of your total sodium intake for the day.

The American Heart Association recommends no more than 2,300 milligrams (mg) a day and moving toward an ideal limit of no more than 1,500 mg per day for most adults.

Next time you’re not sure what to have while on the go, consider this low carbohydrate, high protein snack.
