Potato Crisps by Guiltless Gourmet
Get a healthy snack
When you are managing allergies, snacks are a definite problem. Most processed foods use a wide variety of ingredients, especially in seasonings. These can add whey, use wheat gluten or include tamari, making the apparently perfect snack off limits. Finding the right snack becomes an even bigger problem when you are trying to accommodate kids who would like something to share with friends, something just like the other kids get.
Guiltless Gourmet has come to the rescue!
I've discovered Baked Potato Crisps. Not only are these crispy chips completely gluten-free, they are also lower in calories than traditional potato chips. You can have a full 2 cups of these beauties for a mere 180 calories. They might be the first snack that is both truly guiltless and truly tasty.
This is a snack that will work for the kids as well as for your diet! You'll get 14 grams of protein in your 2 cups of chips, as well as 6 grams of fiber. You'll also get 25 percent of your daily iron requirements, some calcium and some vitamin C. These little beauties are also great if you're on a diet because they are low in fat. There's no trans-fat, either, and not a single artificial flavor or preservative is listed in the ingredients for Baked Potato Crisps.
It's nice to get some actual nutrition from your snack allotment.
What's better: I really liked these chips! Unlike many low-fat chips, these were really crunchy, and the taste was light. The sea salt flavor was perfect for this chip. There was no heavy greasy taste, and there was nothing left on my fingers afterward (except for a little salt). Also, because there is a reasonable amount of protein in these crispy treats, they are actually quite satisfying, unlike some low-fat alternatives.
Guiltless Gourmet's Baked Potato Crisps make a great snack if you are avoiding gluten; however, they won't work if you have soy allergies. The ingredients for the sea salt flavor are defatted soy flour, dried potatoes, expeller-pressed canola oil, tapioca starch and sea salt.
