If you told me I could only have one snack and only one snack guess what it would be? Not chocolate, candy, or cake. It would definitely be potato chips. I am a “salty” kinda girl, and that is how I enjoy my snacks. I bag of potato chips at my house doesn’t last very long. I was recently introduced to Kettle Chips and decided to purchase two bags in some of my favorite flavors. (My favorite is the Jalapeno – salty and spicy YUM!)
Now as most of you know I’m currently following an eating and work out plan so these chips don’t fall into that plan currently. However once in a while I do treat myself to a little snack and when I’m done with the program I intend on being able to work into my eating habit foods that I enjoy. Kettle Chips are “The Real Kettle Chip” because they are made with real ingredients. Check out the label, for the most part I can read and understand everything in these chips.
As we have evolved we have begun to learn more and more about food and both the good and bad effects it has on our body. I for one am most interested in what is “good” for my body. While eating an entire bag of Kettle Chips might not be the right thing to do, having a handful when I get that snacking urge once in a while is ok in moderation. The Kettle Chips carry non-GMO products. I admit I had to google what GMO meant…
Genetically modified foods (GM foods, or biotech foods) are foods produced from genetically modified organisms (GMOs), specifically, genetically modified crops. GMOs have had specific changes introduced into their DNA by genetic engineering techniques. These techniques are much more precise than mutagenesis (mutation breeding) where an organism is exposed to radiation or chemicals to create a non-specific but stable change. Other techniques by which humans modify food organisms include selective breeding and somaclonal variation….[source]
So after a little research I have to say non-GMO is sounding like a good way to go!
I wish I knew then what I know now when it comes to food. I was never one to contemplate what I was putting in my mouth. Unfortunately due to the “unconcern” or lack of knowledge my boys have grown up to be “not too healthy” eaters. However it is never to late to change. Though I don’t plan on stocking my pantry with potato chips to be eaten bags at a time. I feel a little better giving the kids a treat like Kettle Chips with real ingredients.
Has your eating habits changed as you have grown older? Do you prefer real ingredients when cooking for your family?
