Chips - the basis of many evenings with friends and at the same time a symbol of unhealthy food. Anyone will say they could give up on them, but they won't eat the proverbial spinach during the movie! Luckily, we have a solution! What instead of crisps? Snacks that are not only healthy, but also extremely tasty!
Vegetable and fruit chips
You think - snacks, guess - chips! The association is as obvious as the fact that in the traditional salty or spicy versions they are very unhealthy. However, few people realize that in organic food stores it is becoming easier and easier to get fruit or vegetable chips, which are characterized by great taste and, more importantly, are healthy! A great example of this is organic pumpkin chips, which are packed with vitamins A, B, C and PP and a lot of potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus. Additionally, it is worth remembering that 100 g of pumpkin is only 30 kcal!
The second synonym for snack is a peanut, usually peanut with a lot of salt or in a crispy, spicy shell. These little calorie bombs are very easy to replace with nuts in their natural form, without any additives. Importantly, in this case we have a huge selection - cashews , walnuts , Brazil nuts, hazelnuts , pecans , macadamia nuts and many others taste great and contain a lot of nutrients. Almonds will also be an excellent choice for a film screening or a social event . They contain a lot of magnesium, copper and fiber, as well as tocopherols and amygdalin.

An interesting "snack" option will also be dried fruit - such as raisins known and liked in Poland for years. However, not only dried grapes can satisfy a little hunger. Products such as dried apricots, cranberries, figs, bananas and papaya will also be perfect. Of these types of options, it is worth paying attention to goji berries .

What else instead of crisps? An interesting and the most "modern" alternative to traditional snacks is undoubtedly the freeze-dried fruit . They are created in the process of water freezing, thanks to which they retain freshness, taste and all the nutritional properties of fresh fruit for a very long time. Thanks to the fact that any fruit or vegetable can be freeze-dried, we can enjoy delicious strawberries, blueberries and raspberries in winter and autumn. As a snack for long autumn and winter evenings, the latter is especially perfect.
