Green Giant Chips: Salty Snacking with Less Fat!9:37 PM
I have been a little bit more "snacky" since I've become pregnant. My favorite time to eat crunchy, salty treats is right before bed, as I'm watching my favorite shows or while on Facebook. While I usually feel a little guilty about eating too many, it helps to have some portion control and be a bit wiser about the chips and crackers that I indulge in.
When I recently sampled Green Giant's Veggie Snack Chips, I was expecting them to taste.. like veggies. These crunchy, savory, and delicious snacks, however, were exactly what my cravings needed, and it didn't hurt that they are made with real veggies!
My husband actually commented that the BBQ Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips were the best BBQ flavored chips he's ever eaten. I had to agree, and we weren't exactly hating the fact that they contain 40% less fat than your typical chip:
We also gave the Roasted Veggie Tortillas Chips a try (in Garden Ranch flavor.) These had a nice corn flavor, a robust ranch kick, and were really very filling! I liked that the chips had 18 grams of whole grain, as well. I ended up eating less of them than my typical corn chip -- which is probably a good thing since I'm eating before bed. (What's also amazing is that they are made with red and green peppers; I'm not a fan of them, personally, but it didn't affect my opinion of the flavor!)
These snacks are so satisfying, that I've been able to avoid eating them with dips or salsas. They are great by themselves, but I also find that pairing them with some fresh veggies (like little tomatoes out of my garden, carrots, or fresh cukes) is a nice treat to "up" the crunch factor!
These are just 2 of the available flavors you can find at most stores. I'm looking forward to giving the Roasted Veggie Tortillas Chips in Zesty Cheddar and Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips in Sea Salt a try!
