Food Should Taste Good
I have recently been introduced to these chips and they are fantastic! They sent me some samples and I was impressed with not only the taste and texture, but the nutritional aspects, too. Who doesn't love chips?
Food Should Taste Good is basically a tortilla chip, but they come in 11 different flavors like sweet potato, chocolate, olive, cinnamon, and buffalo. They also have usual flavors like yellow corn, lime, the works (think everything bagel), and jalapeno. My favorite is the multigrain. It has quinoa, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds in a tortilla chip that feels like a light cracker. It dips beautifully into my favorite sundried tomato hummus! Mmmm....tastes good! All of the chips have the flavors baked into them instead of sprayed onto the outside of the chip.
What I love from them nutritionally is that each of the 11 flavors starts with stone ground corn as the first ingredient. That means the most predominant ingredient is whole grain. They all also come in at or below 140 mg of sodium per oz serving. They all have at least 3 grams of fiber per serving and are trans fat free and cholesterol free. They are also all gluten free, certified Kosher, and do not use any genetically modified ingredients.
Tonight I made chicken wings for a TV segment I am doing about the Big Game tomorrow and I crushed up the Buffalo chips and used them as a breading on the wings. The wings were then simply baked in the oven. Turned out fabulous! They have other recipe ideas for some of the other flavors of chips, too!
