Lookie what we/he got his hands on. My little monkey grabbed these bags so I decided that he needed to pose for the photo before he was rewarded with a tasting. Since we have been thinking about snacks that we are bringing to Disney for many days now, I have spent quite a bit of time in the natural foods sections. My little guy noticed these and declared 'chips!' and my eyes opened wide when I saw them. I am also always on the lookout for new foods that address those with dietary restrictions such as vegans and celiac disease and these chips by 'Rice Works' fit that bill. These folks just launched these brown rice chips and although they are not baked, they are: wheat and gluten free, contain no trans fat or no preservatives or artificial flavors. Therefore, I guess if you want to give in to your chip craving, these are a good option. Now, the tastings: the 'Sea Salt' are my favorite of the two. Not too salty, fresh tasting, full of sesame flavor. Yummy. My son agreed. Upon opening the 'Sweet Chili' offering, I was immediately confronted with the sweet chili smell and my taste buds were ready. I found them to be very seasoned, maybe a bit too much and they could remove a good 30 mg of sodium from each serving and be the perfect sweet & savory combination in my opinion. My sons review 'ummm but they get spicy on my tongue'. I will definitely be adding these to my list of chip indulgences and look forward to trying some of the other flavors. Thumbs up!
Back to Disney: I am so used to cooking for the family that the idea of eating out 3 times a day is too much for me AND I want to make sure that we always have quick breakfast and snack options on hand so here is what we have packed:
organic petite carrots
deli meats (I know nitrates are not great but all is moderation folks)
reduced fat cheese sticks
my favorite cascadian farm vanilla chip bars
Z bars that the kids love
Fiber one bars
roasted whole almonds
organic chocolate milk in travel sizes from horizon
pineapple jerky (post to follow upon my return)
I will fill you in on our restaurant/food adventures when we return.
