Soy Product #5
I was never a fan of chicken nuggets. I always found that there was something off about the taste, and when I did eat them, I was usually given a substandard, extremely low quality version served in my high school cafeteria (not that there really is a high quality chicken nugget…). Who knows where the chicken inside those nuggets came from, or if it was even chicken that they were stuffed with. Sometimes I’d actually find myself biting down on a piece of crunchy cartilage. The thoughts of what exactly might be ground up and thrown into chicken nuggets combined with the startling pieces of cartilage forced inside my mouth really turned me off from eating chicken nuggets all together.
However, I do enjoy chicken-free nuggets, especially when dipped in ketchup or BBQ sauce. While I don’t usually center my meal around these nuggets, they make a great protein-packed snack or side dish.
Just three of the nuggets pictured on the left contain 14 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber, with only 120 calories. While real chicken nuggets typically contain 10 grams of fat and 10% of your day’s cholesterol, grease-free, chicken-free nuggets only contain 2 grams of fat and zero cholesterol.
I particularly enjoy Health Is Wealth All Natural Chicken-Free Nuggets or Trader Joe’s Soy Nuggets because they are coated in whole wheat flour, instead of nutrient-free, refined white flour.
