popchips {giveaway} {closed}

Ok, so unless you live under a rock, you have heard of popchips, right? Ok, well maybe not everyone has heard of them because I just asked Scott about them (and he doesn’t live under a rock. ..) and he had never heard of them. ..

From the popchips website:

popchips are naturally delicious potato, tortilla and corn chips like you’ve never tasted before never fried (unhealthy). never baked (undelicious). We start with the finest ingredients, add a little heat and pressure, and pop! it’s a chip. the only thing added is a flavorful blend of seasonings for a snack so crispy and delicious, you won’t even notice it’s (we hesitate to say) healthier. thanks to the magic of popping, popchips have all the flavor, and half the fat of fried potato, tortilla or corn chips. what’s left out are a lot of calories and all the trans fat, cholesterol, fake colors and flavors (and greasy fingers) that give snacking a bad name.

Potato popchips come in 9 flavors: original, barbeque, sour cream & onion, sea salt & vinegar, cheddar, salt & pepper, chili lime, sweet potato and thai sweet chili. The tortilla popchips come in 4 four flavors including nacho cheese, ranch, salsa and chili limón. And did you know that Katy Perry has a signature flavor? katy’s kettle corn popchips.

And now Jillian Michaels has partnered with popchips. . .

One of my favorite tips of hers is this one. ..

“making wiser eating choices doesn’t mean you have to skip the fun traditions like taco night. when picking out your main dish options, always go with lean organic meat whenever possible. lean turkey and grilled chicken are great options. and if you love beef in your taco, just make it half lean grass fed organic beef and half turkey meat for a better option that still tastes great. having a burger night? instead of piling on the condiments, which are full of calories and high fructose corn syrup, try adding sliced avocado. they are full of healthy fats that are good for your body and skin! (then add a side of popchips instead of french fries.)”

AND she came up with a few recipes to pair with popchips –> I have never made my own hummus before, but I am thinking I might have to try. . .

Hummus (recipe from Jillian Michaels)
Pairs excellently with original and salt and pepper popchips

1(15 ounce) can no-sodium chickpeas
¼ cup fresh lemon juice, or to taste
3 tablespoons tahini
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, for garnish
1/8 teaspoon sumac or sweet, hot, or smoked paprika, for garnish


1. Place a strainer over a bowl and drain the chickpeas; reserve ¼ cup of the captured liquid.
2. In the work bowl of a food processor, place the lemon juice, tahini, garlic, and salt. Process until combined. Add the drained chickpeas and the reserved liquid. 3. Process until very smooth, scraping down the sides of the work bowl once or twice or as needed. Taste and add more lemon juice if desired. (The hummus can be stored in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week).
4. For a single snack: place 2 tablespoons of the hummus in a small bowl. Drizzle with 1/8 teaspoon olive oil and sprinkle a pinch of sumac over it. Pair with original and salt and pepper popchips for a healthy snack.

And now some super cool news. ..

    Popchips sound like a healthy snack I’d like to try when I have a craving for something salty and crunchy. I’d especially like to taste the sea salt and vinegar popchips–but they all sound delicious!

  2. yum, BBQ all the way!

  3. I’ve seen them before but never tried them. I think I’d go with my standby favorite flavor: sour cream and onion.
