    How to stay in shape like the stars of Fifty Shades of Grey? Here are some healthy food options and good foods for fans of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

    healthy food options, good foods, fifty shades of grey

    Fifty Shades of Grey is already over, at least in the movie theater. Most of you have seen it. Those who did see it would surely want to know how the stars have stayed in shape during the shooting.

    If you’re committing to your fitness goals, just like Dakota Johnson of Fifty Shades of Grey, you can start by opting for good foods and healthy options.

    After watching the film, forego your traditional snacks that you pick in your favorite grocery store.

    Instead, pick these smart swaps.

    Fifty Shades of Grey healthy options for a snack #1 – Protein Chips

    What’s a snack without chips that you can munch on while you’re doing whatever it is that you need to do.

    Unfortunately, potato chips that you can purchase in a grocery store are loaded with fats. The worse thing is that they have tiny serving sizes that you can’t limit yourself to.

    You can opt for raw vegetables.

    However, if you really want to munch on potato chips, try swapping traditional chip with protein chips.

    They’re still a chip but they’re mostly protein. That said, you’ll surely satisfy your cravings. The great thing is that they’re made of whey protein.

    Sadly, protein chips are not always available in a grocery store. You may need to shop in a specialized store to pick one.

    Fifty Shades of Grey Healthy Options for a snack #2 – Turkey

    Buffalo wings are a favorite snack of people who are living a sedentary lifestyle. Although they contain protein, they’re still loaded with fats from their sauce and condiments, like blue cheese.

    Instead of Buffalo wings, try replacing them with tender turkey breast that contains 60 calories per serving. Look for turkey breast snack that’s low in sodium but no nitrates.

    When the film is available for rental, you can rent it out and watch it with your friends at home. Prepare this snack while waiting for Christian Grey.

    Fifty Shades of Grey healthy options for a snack #3 – Pretzels

    They’re always a mainstay as a movie snack. It’s true that they’re low in fat. But they lack in protein. The worse thing is that they’re loaded with sodium that will leave you feel dehydrated after consuming a pack of pretzels.

    Instead of the usual pretzels that you buy, opt for natural protein pretzels that contain at least 12 grams of protein per bag. If you could find a pretzel bag that’s gluten-free, then that would be better.

    Fifty Shades of Grey healthy options for a snack #4 – Protein Peanut Butter

    It may not be in Christian Grey’s or Anastasia Steele’s fridge but it should be in yours. The usual peanut butter contains at least 190 calories per serving or per two tablespoons.

    Instead of hurting your belly size while watching the film, try looking for a protein peanut butter spread that contains 14 grams of protein. A regular peanut butter does have protein but its content is not high enough to satisfy you.

    Fifty Shades of Grey healthy options for a snack #5 – Cookies

    Chips Ahoy is a savory snack. It’s true. But it’s loaded with carbs and fats. Not to mention the calories with little amount of protein.

    If you’re going to eat cookies while reviewing this film, opt for a protein cookie. Some supermarkets do sell protein cookies that are gluten-free and low in sodium.

    Fifty Shades of Grey healthy options for a snack #6 – Dips

    What’s the best dip for your vegetable chips? Try having a calorie-free dressing, instead of the usual ranch dressing that you serve on the table that’s loaded with fats, carbs and calories.

    A calorie-free dressing may not have protein content but it doesn’t have calories, fats, and carbs. It’s still a win-win.

    Conclusion

    Sticking to your fitness goals isn’t that hard with the help of these healthy alternatives. They still taste pretty good and they give you high amount of protein to satisfy your cravings and hunger while you’re waiting for that helipad scene (or the elevator) on Fifty Shades of Grey.
