It really is a journey, hour by hour and even sometimes minute by minute keeping your head on straight. Lifestyle change is more mental than anything. The rest of it is intuitive or a few minutes reading up on “how to”. I learned something valuable this week. Terra Chips made from root vegetables (parsnips, carrots, sweet potato, beet, and turnips) are delicious. Every ounce is one serving of vegetables. Sounds really good and you would think it all should check out okay. Yet it doesn’t and I’ll tell you why. Deep fried like potato chips and seasoned with enough salt to preserve a bucket of fish, these beauties once nutritious, fall into the same category as an honest bag of Lays potato chips.
Delicious, yes they certainly are but every serving is 150 calories and 10% of that fat calories. Now, okay it could be worked in but here’s the rub, each bag has 8 servings. When you open the bag the vast space from the opening to where the chips actually lay inside the bag makes 8 servings seem impossible to produce from one bag. The serving size is so small and the seasoning is so addictive you might as well forget about it. So what am I doing to deal with crispy, crunchy and a hint of salt? Don’t get all bent out of shape until you try this.
