Try It Tuesday: Saffron Road Baked Lentil Chips #healthysnacks


TRY IT TUESDAY

Saffron Road Baked Lentil Chips

I love snacks, especially chips. I know it is mostly habit, but when I eat a sandwich I love having a side of chips. My favorite snack combo is to eat tortilla chips with salsa.

Lately, I have been looking for a healthier option. I have been trying to modify my diet and switch to foods that are lower in fat, calories, and have more nutritional benefits.

That is how I found Saffron Road Baked Lentil Chips.

Lentil chips are lower in fat and higher in protein.

Here is how they compare with two of my faves Baked BBQ Lays potato chips and Tostitos tortilla chips.

Lentil (serving size 20 chips) Baked Lays (serving size 15 chips) Tortilla (serving size 7 chips)
Calories 120 140 140
Total Fat 3g 3g 7g
Carbs 19g 25g 19g
Sodium 135mg 230mg 115mg
Protein 4g 2g 2g

After comparing the numbers I decided to try and see if I liked the taste. I bought the Sea Salt ones and they don’t have much flavor on their own. The texture reminded me of kettle chips. Very crunchy.

Because they are thicker, I found that they great for dipping. I ate with hummus, salsa, and cheese dip.

While eating, I could tell the chips were different than what I was used to eating, but it was not bad.

This is not exactly a low carb option, but you will find this is for you if you want a snack that is lower in calories and fat.

TOW Final Word: Saffron Road Lentil chips are a good substitute for potato or tortilla chips. Good source of fiber, gluten free, and less fat.
