Indulgence Options: The Chocolate Brownie

Guilty pleasures. We all have them, and despite knowing they're not good for us we just can't help popping them into our basket on our weekly shop. In this blog series I'll hopefully be showing you healthier options for your favourite indulgences, as well as giving you one of the best options for when you just can't help yourself!
For today's Indulgence Options? The most delicious of foods from the bakery!

Indulgence: The Chocolate Brownie

I don't believe anyone when they say they don't like chocolate brownies - especially when they've just come out the oven and are all warm and gooey! Yummmm.... But don't worry if you're eating healthily, all is not lost! I've hunted around the three major supermarkets' online stores to find you a 'healthy option' as well as the best option if you really can't help yourself!

Healthy Option: DevilMoo Fro-Yo by YooMoo
I'm sure you're sick of me mentioning these already but if you fancy a bit of brownie without anywhere near as many sins, you really have to try Yoomoo's Devilmoo Fro-Yo. At only 151 calories per 150ml tub, sprinkled with chocolate brownie pieces and swirls of choccy sauce as well as being topped with cute little chocolate stars, its a super light alternative for all you chocoholics out there. With the sun seeming to peep out from behind the rain now, it'll be great for warmer weather haha. :)

If You Can't Help Yourself: Weight Watchers  Double Chocolate Brownies
After a long-winded search through every ready-made brownie products on Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury's online stores that had all the nutritional information I needed, the Weightwatchers Double Chocolate Brownies seemed to be the best option out of them all. They contain just 3.3g fat and 167 calories per dessert, and also has a significantly lower carbohydrate content per 100g than the majority of the other brownies on the market. If you really can't help popping some brownie in your basket, then reach for this!

What do you think of my new blog series? What foods would you like to see in the next Indulgence Options post? Let me know! :)

Disclaimer: Because of a limited time span I was only able to look at foods from the top three supermarkets in the UK (Asda, Tesco & Sainsbury's). I looked at nutritional values per 100g to make it fair, as I am aware that serving sizes can be different through various brands. The method used was to award points for the highest protein, lowest fat, lowest carbohydrate and sugar, and the lowest sodium content as well as calorie content.
This is a light-hearted look at the food industry where I give alternative food options, and should in no way be taken as being scientifically proven.
