YEAH! Out with the chips, in with the fruit!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Thank You all. By what I have read, I bet those darn salsa and chips was one of the reasons why I'm having a non moving scale. I was eating them everyday!! I got addicted to them! So now I know to limit them.

Roxie, what brand of chips is that that claims no trans fats?

That's your best bet I think! I eat chips on occasion, but try to keep them out of the house as much as I can.

I don't eat those potato chips with olestra anymore...I tried them once, a long time ago but didn't really like them. That is why I have switched to pretzels and baked chips.

I was just wondering about the info about it.

With further thought about this subject, I'm better off with hummus and crunchy veggies with it. I'll make this my goal... emoticon

Oh God!! Olestra!! You have to know anything with a warning label can't be healthy! It used to come with a warning label on the bag that it might cause oily anal leakage or something like that! I don't know if it still does I haven't looked at it since seeing that!

Annie, what about baked chips? Or pretzels? There's also the new oil that is used in making the Lays Chips...olestra.

Whats your opinion on this? Because, I also have cravings for some crunch...I've been switching to pretzels and baked chips for a once in awhile snack...usually on the weekends.

Mine says 0 trans fats on the nutrition facts. I understand when labels place all sorts of claims on the front, consumers really need to read the ingredient list and the nutrition facts to be sure.

If it says "zero transfats" anywhere on the label except what is in the "nutrition facts" box then it can still have trans fats in it. The FDA has let the food manufacturers get away with this little deception as long as a "serving" has .5mg (or less) trans fats in it. Then you have to ask, what does the package say a "serving" is??
They are supposed to list the actual amount of trans fats in the nutrition facts box.

Labels are tricky things. If you really, really don't want to put bad stuff into your body knowingly then I say, don't eat chips; not every day--only on a very special occasion and then stick to 2 or 3 chips.

If there is any oil in the chips during the cooking portion of its trip through the plant then you can be sure there are trans fats in the final product.

Refined oils are another problem for our health...another story, another time.

Sadly, Annie is right. Aside from a very rare occasion (I'm talking less than once a month), I just stay away from ANY kind of chip, be it organic or not.

Sigh.......

I totally forgot to mention a more important negative aspect of chips whether they are organic or not. That is they have been taken to a very high temperature which most of us have learned is damaging to our bodies when mixed with starches like potatoes and corn. I'm talking about acrylamide. There's also the issue of trans fats. Organic trans fats aren't any better for us than conventional ones. And they are present in anything that has fat in it that was cooked at a high temperature...unless you know your fats and watch the thermometer closely.

I was in that same section of the store the other day and noticed the chips and salsa too. I bought them. I had too. I'm a potato chips addict, but haven't had any since eating clean.
I'm going to allow myself one single serving of chips with one single serving of salsa once a week, probably on the weekends when I'm watching football with the hubby.

Here are my tortilla chips ingredient list:
Organic yellow corn, Expeller pressed oliec safflower and/or sunflower oil, and/or Expeller pressed canola oil, sea salt.

There are 65mg of sodium per serving (14 chips).

Oh, and the salsa has sea salt also.

If you make sure the salt you are consuming is a natural seas salt then you don't have to worry as much about getting too much salt. The trouble with a snack like chips and salsa is more the grain in the chips. It is just so hard to eat only 3 or 4 chips! I'm talking about weight gain here more than high blood pressure issues.

I have read in more than one place that regular table salt is the culprit that raises blood pressure and that natural sea salts, because of the balance of other minerals actually are good for us. Table salt is pure sodium whereas sea salts have several other minerals such as magnesium, potassium, boron etc. Like all nutrients, they work together (synergistically) to keep us healthy.

I prefer to dip thin apple slices into hummus or guacamole and stay away from chips except for rare special occasions. No way to get around it; chips are bad news...IMHO

How much salt is in a serving of your salsa and chips? And do you use salt any other time? The old standard was around 2000mg of salt a day but I believe some are lowering it even more.....

Every day is *the day.* Dream it. Live it. Love it.....with all your heart & soul.

Ok, our local food store has a green wise section with mostly clean eating foods. They have organic salsa and whole wheat tortilla chips made with flaxseed and sea salt.
My question is how much is to much. You know most of us women crave salt and sweet during that time. I was SOOO proud of myself because I substituted eating junk food for eating fruit. but I substituted my salt fix with salsa and chips but everyday. It that to much salt intake?
