Surprising Point Rip-Offs

Panera shortbread cookie: 10 PointsPlus. This cookie is maybe four bites, and that’s being generous. I’d recommend passing.

Nachos. Yes, I’m sure you know that these are a bad choice. But every time I cave and go to tally them up, I really can’t believe it. It certainly doesn’t help that they’re served on a never-ending platter either. Just 3 cheese nachos is 9 PointsPlus. Scary!

PowerBar Fruit Smoothie: 6 PointsPlus. This might not seem so bad, but that 6 points is almost completely wasted since there are only 6 grams of protein. You can have an Atkins bar with almost 20 grams of protein for 5 PointsPlus, which of course, will stave off hunger much longer. Not to mention, Atkins bars taste better! And have you seen how many flavors they have? Plus, many boxes include a coupon for your next box. Protein AND savings? Yes, please!
