Healthy AND Tasty Snacks-really

July 12, 2011

One of my favorite places to browse is TJ Maxx; I can always depend on them for cool finds in the check out line. They really know how to get us, don’t they? Well today was no different –  I found another tasty treat. As previously stated, I am a confirmed potato chip junkie. So it doesn’t take a whole lot to peak my interest when it comes to the crunchy, salty goodness of potato chips.  My new friends are Glories Sweet Potato Chips and Avocado Chips by Good Health Natural Foods. Ok, so ‘friends’ may be a little bit of a stretch, but at least I don’t feel as guilty after eating them.

I’ll start with the Glories Sweet Potato Chips, for they are indeed glorious. The first bite was heaven; there was a burst of subtle sweetness with a mild hint of salt at the end-a perfect blend of salty sweet. This was my first time experiencing sweet potato chips in a bag. I was skeptical at first thinking the experience would be loaded with artificial syrup and enough salt to send someone’s blood pressure to the moon. But not so with Good Health Natural Foods. This chip boasts low sodium, GMO (genetically modified organism) free, and gluten free. Check out the nutrition facts:

The Avocado Oil Potato Chips with sea salt were on point too. Good Health Natural Foods made a wise decision in choosing this beneficial and flavorful cooking agent. AO is a monounsaturated oil that helps to reduce LDL cholesterol (that’s the bad one). Avocado oil is also an excellent substitute for olive oil as both have an excellent, distinct taste; and they both work wonders for the skin and hair. Here is the nutritional info – doesn’t look bad at all:
