Friday Favorites: Food Should Taste Good BrandAngela | January 28, 2011
We don’t eat a lot of processed food around these parts anymore. I try to make pretty much everything I can, if it is at all possible. But, there are some things that just are more convenient to buy already made. Cereal fits in this bucket, as do chips.
I know, I know. Health purists would balk at even mentioning chips. But, let’s keep it real. Chips have a place even in a healthy diet, especially these chips. I just stumbled upon them one day on a trip to QFC. We never go to QFC (they’re a Kroger chain for non-Washingtonians), but, it was the day before Thanksgiving and 2Chili needed poultry spice to make his dressing, so we just popped in to the closest store while we were out and about. (By the way, have you ever read the ingredients label in poultry spice? It’s amusing – it says, quite simply, that the ingredients are “spices.”)
I tried the sweet potato tortilla chips first, and they were so good that I went looking for more, and as it turns out, Amazon Fresh carries quite a few varieties for $2.79-$3.29 a bag. That’s not bad!
And the ingredients are good. Here is the marketing lingo from the package:
- These chips are good from the inside out
- Certified gluten free, kosher (OU), low sodium, and have a good source of dietary fiber
- They are all-natural with no genetically modified ingredients or anything artificial
- Good source of dietary fiber
- No cholesterol and no trans fat
And, here is the ingredient list for the multi-grain variety:
Stone Ground Yellow Corn, Non-hydrogenated Canola Oil, Brown Rice Flour, Flax Seeds, Turbinado Cane Sugar, Oat Fiber, Sesame Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Quinoa, Soy Flour, Sea Salt.
I can usually pick any label to pieces, but, I really find this one to be perfectly fine. Oh, did I mention they’re good? They pass the 2Chili test, so not just health nuts will find them good. I have a slight flax allergy, but for some reason these chips do not set off any of the symptoms, which is a bonus!
Here is the nutrition info on the multigrain:
If you’re looking for a healthier chip to partner with your sandwich or salsa, perhaps check these out. We always have some in our pantry!
