Sometimes you just need a satisfying crunch. When you are trying to eat healthy but crave a chip, Jica Chips might be the solution. Made from jicama, a root veggie you may have seen or tasted in Mexican cuisine, these chips are baked and come in a variety of flavors, including plain, smoked barbecue, white cheddar and cinnamon sugar. So why eat these instead of the standard potato variety?
They are low in fat and high in fiber. Compared to a standard chip, the company rates them as having 30% fewer calories, five times more fiber and 80% less fat. Jicachips uses olive oil and simple spices and ingredients you can pronounce as flavorings. They’re also non-GMO, gluten free and paleo friendly. They taste great, but another safeguard to eating less calories is the size of the bag: it’s 0.9 ounces, so if you happen to eat the whole thing, you don’t have to feel too badly (and I don’t advocate feeling guilty around food anyway!). jicachips.com
