Potato chips? Really? That’s not a healthy food!

You’re probably right about that. But life happens, doesn’t it?

Life, and more specifically our eating habits, are all relative. Eating fish or turkey is usually better than pork or beef, but even better than that is including more nuts, seeds, avocados, cheese, and eggs in the diet for protein purposes. Every little step we take is what matters; each action does not matter so much in the grand scheme of our physical health so much as it matters in our habits. By bringing mindfulness  to our actions we can stray as long as we are mindful and do it consciously. So today, this is the lesson:

If we want to eat potato chips, we can find a healthy version of it!

And this is exactly what I would like to bring your attention to today:

Jacksons Organic Potato Chips:

The great thing about these is not just that they are organic. The great part is that they are cooked in coconut oil instead of the horrible, often-rancid oils that most potato chips are cooked in.

“Vegetable” oils such as safflower, sunflower, peanut, or canola contain high levels of omega-6 polyunsaturated fats – of which excess can be harmful to our health. Most people already eat enough of these oils every day. Replacing this fat with coconut oil (a healthy, saturated fat) likely makes eating these potato chips much better for our health.

At the end of the day, are they still potato chips? Yes, maybe not the best for you, but the fact that they are organic and made with coconut oil is a big plus.

The best part? These are usually $3-4.

I found them for 99 cents at my local Grocery Outlet. How is that for a steal?

Keep bargaining for your health my friends.
