I consider myself to be a healthy eater most of the time. I'm a vegetarian (24 years and counting), and try to eat whole foods that are primarily organic and/or local. But I have a thing for chips. I love nachos. I love chips and dip. I love chips and guac. I love chips and salsa. I love chips with a side of chips. And admittedly, being pregnant has only amplified this undying affinity for the incredible invention known as the chip.
I very rarely do food or drink reviews on the blog. But thanks to my more-than-mild chip obsession going up against my efforts to eat healthy, I just couldn't turn it down when I was approached about trying out the new Green Giant™ Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips in Garden Ranch and Green Giant Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips in Barbecue. And I'm so glad I did. Not only are they both absolutely delicious, they're made using better ingredients than your traditional flavored potato or tortilla chip. The Roasted Veggie Chips are made with real vegetables and whole grains, and the spices include things like evaporated cane syrup (instead of icky high fructose corn syrup), and quinoa (my favorite), garlic, tomatoes, broccoli and carrots (instead of weird artificial flavorings and MSG). The Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips are made with real sweet potatoes and whole grains, and are 40% less fat than regular potato chips. Score.
My new favorite afternoon snack consists of an apple, a glass of mint infused water, and a bowl of the Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips. My chip craving is satisfied without the extra fat and grease, and I feel like I'm still able to enjoy myself without completely sacrificing nutrition. It's a win-win you guys. For those of you who are fellow chip lovers, I suggest giving these babies a try. They also make a great party snack, and are so good with your favorite sandwich (my husband has been eating with sandwiches them incessantly).
Any other usually-healthy-eaters who are also chip fanatics? What are your favorites?
