Healthy Snacks

If you're anything like me, you enjoy snacking. It's become a bit of a pastime for me. A few chips here, some nuts there. A candy bar or two. Sugary popcorn, etc. Occasionally I have opted for veggie chips only to discover to my dismay that they are actually made from potatoes.

Although the potato is a vegetable, potato chips are not exactly healthy. Potatoes themselves are a starch, and they turn into carbs in your body which then get converted into sugars. This can raise your sugar levels to an unhealthy point.

Then I came across these gems.

They sounded too good to be true. Now, I am not a big connoisseur of things that grow on trees or in the ground. I can munch on carrots in moderation, but they usually have to be accompanied by something else—preferably a meat dish.

I have tried munching on the mini carrots you buy from the grocery store, but they usually end up turning white in my fridge, and then I have to throw away the shriveled pieces.

Then I saw these on Amazon.

These Are Actually Healthy

If you are not the kind of shopper who looks at labels, you should probably consider doing so.

It is important to recognize what you are putting into your body. What you eat can have an adverse affect on your health, or help contribute to your overall physical well being. Eating foods high in salt or fat can lead to complications such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.

The benefits of a healthy diet are not only physical; they can contribute to your mental health, as well. Good physical health can assist you in feeling better about yourself. When you have a good attitude and think good thoughts, you will find yourself more motivated to engage in your activities of daily living. (In the social work profession, the activities of daily living are so important that we abbreviate it ADLs.)

Back to these snacks. Let's take a look at the label:

  • Calories: 60
  • Sodium 6%
  • Cholesterol: 0
  • Carbs: 4%
  • Potassium 10%

Are They Good?

The first thing I noticed is that the portion size is pretty small; I'd say it is the equivalent of one serving of vegetables. Do these substitute for eating veggies as a daily requirement? Probably not in the grand scheme of things. But it appears as if they provide some of the vitamins and nutrients you can obtain by eating the actual vegetables. These are definitely more palatable, they don't require refrigeration, and they can be eaten easily.

They taste like just about almost any veggie snack I've tried. They have a nice crunch and then a subtle flavor I don't know how to describe, but it is pleasant. They are a little more salty than I like, but I think it is the sea salt that makes them a little tastier. Salts and sweets are two of the flavors the human taste bud responds to.

They really do not have a carroty taste, but sort of a chip-like flavor that you find in the other snacks. I think these will appeal to kids and other finicky eaters who are reluctant to try things other than chocolate ice cream or pizza. The audience for these is definitely larger because of their snackability. The aroma is nice and rich, and the color unique.

Air-Fried, Not Dehydrated

According to the label, these are air-fried, which means they are not dehydrated. And they taste air-fried, too. Even though they are crunchy, they still have a bit of give to them that is not dried out. The air-fry method implies that no unnecessary oils were used, which makes them healthier.

They are good for vegans and provide a good source of fiber and potassium.

Overall, a pretty good choice.
