Do you know which option for breakfast, snack time or dessert has more calories? Take our quiz and find out how much you really know!
- Which is worse: Pancakes or French toast? The “worst” award goes to: French toast. Three slices of French toast - without butter and syrup - clock in at 450 calories. 200 MORE calories than the pancakes. To make your pancakes even healthier, grab a bag of frozen, unsweetened fruit, and melt it in the microwave. It’ll make a kind of syrup that’s only 19 calories per quarter cup. 10 times fewer calories than regular pancake syrup!
- Nacho-flavor tortilla chips or classic potato chips? Of course, neither one is very healthy, but the potato chips win the “worst” award. A one-ounce serving has 150 calories and 10 grams of fat. 10 more calories than tortilla chips, and 2 extra grams of fat.
- Brownies or blondies? Those deliciously dense chocolate chip cookie bars - blondies. They may be light on the chocolate, but blondies contain extra butter and sugar to deliver that delicious vanilla-y flavor. In fact, a two-inch square blondie contains 234 calories – twice the calories of a brownie! You can make them both a little healthier. Simply make your recipes with almonds instead of walnuts, egg whites instead of whole eggs, and applesauce instead of butter.
