? Food Swap Friday ?
SNACKS – I mean who doesn’t love an afternoon snack?? Salty, savory, and crunchy snacks are my go-to for sure. It can be challenging to find healthy snacks on the go that are made from whole foods without added preservatives and full of refined ingredients.
This week I chose chips as my food swap – KALE CHIPS are a wonderful swap when you are looking for a crunchy savory snack instead of grabbing a bag of chips that provide little to no nutritional value. These delicious kale chips by @rhythmsuperfoods come in many flavors and are crunchy, salty, filling, and super satisfying. See below for some fun nutrition facts comparing @rhythmsuperfoods kale chips to classic Lay’s potato chips.
Have you tried these yummy snacks before?

LAY’s CLASSIC POTATO CHIPS
? 1 serving (1 oz) about 15 chips: 160 calories, 10 g fat (1.5 g sat. fat), 15 g carbs, <1 g of protein
? Dietary fiber 1 g
? Fat content is coming from sunflower, corn & canola oil – these oils are highly refined & contain a high amount of omega-6 & 9 fatty acids.
? The American diet consists of an excess amount of omega-6 & omega-9 fatty acids – unfortunately, in excess these fats are converted to inflammatory promoting prostaglandins that can lead to cell damage throughout the body and long-term consumption lead to many chronic diseases.
