Smart Swap: Crackers and Chips

One of my followers asked what type of chips and crackers I serve with the Buffalo Chicken Ranch Dip and if I have any recommendations for good all-natural options. Great question! And why yes, of course I do :)

Packaged crackers can contain preservatives, artificial flavoring, and even artificial color. Here are my recommendations for all-natural or organic crackers:

Kashi
Original 7 Grain with Sea Salt Pita Crisps
120 calories, 3 g Fat, 5 g Fiber, 3 g Protein per serving

 

Original Heart to Heart Whole Grain Crackers
120 calories, 3.5 g Fat, 4 g Fiber, 3 g Protein per serving

 

Original 7 Grain Snack Crackers
120 calories, 3.5 g Fat, 3 g Fiber, 4 g Protein per serving

 

Annie’s
Organic Bunny Classics Buttery Rich
70 calories, 3.5 g Fat, 0 g Fiber, 1 g Protein per serving

 

Nabisco
Triscuit Original
120 calories, 4.5 g Fat, 3 g Fiber, 3 g Protein per serving

 

Triscuit Thin Crisps Original
130 calories, 5 g Fat, 3 g Fiber, 3 g Protein per serving

 

As for tortilla chips, most are already all-natural and consist only of corn, oil, and salt. However, organic tortilla chips will ensure the crop was not genetically modified (more on that in another post!) or sprayed with harmful pesticides.

Here are my recommendations for organic or non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) chips:

Garden of Eatin’
Blue, Yellow, and White Corn tortilla chips (all made with organic corn)
140 calories, 7 g Fat (6 g for Yellow and White), 2 g Fiber, 2 g Protein per serving

 

Bearitos (Little Bear)
Blue, Yellow, and White Corn tortilla chips (all made with organic corn)
140 calories, 10 g Fat, 2 g Fiber, 2 g Protein per serving

 

If you have your own all-natural favorites, feel free to comment with your suggestions!
