Crunchy Chicks

Having healthy food on hand in the pantry and fridge are a must in my house.  I love taking the time to cook a delicious and seasonal meal with fresh ingredients. But there are days when I am in and out of the house or simple do not have the time or energy.  So snacks are a must. My husband has a love affair with chips.  I try to keep other snacks on hand to prevent him from caving and going to the local co-op. The co-op is a block away, so this happens often.

Snacking on whole foods will leave you much more satisfied.  Having a handful of Crispy Chicks leaves my tummy full, while a handful of corn chips leaves me unsatisfied and wanting more.

Crunchy Chicks are a great snack or are a fabulous topping on a salad for an extra crunch. You can be creative with the seasonings. Try a savory crunch with garlic or rosemary or a sweeter treat  with maple syrup and cinnamon.  These little guys are great for kids too!
