Cross Cuisines Plantain Chips to the Rescue!

Every diet can present its challenges and Paleo is no different.

One of things people miss most when they give up snacks, such as potato or tortilla   chips, is the CRUNCH that comes when biting into them AND I have solved that problem!!!

Plantain chips! Best part is, they are available on the Cross Cuisine menu!

Served with my homemade guacamole and salsa and fried in healthy red palm oil, they are not only satisfying, but also legal on the Paleo Diet. In fact, they provide the crunch people need to stay on the diet. The reason I use red palm oil is simple: it is a traditional fat that has been part of people’s diets for at least 5,000 years. Derived from the fruit of the oil palm tree, it is a rich dark red and recognized around the world for its nutritional and healing properties.

Here are some of the benefits of red palm oil:

*Supplies fatty acids essential for proper growth and development.

*Provides an array of vitamins, including vitamins A and E, antioxidants, and other phytonutrients vital to good health.

*Packed with carotenes such as beta-carotene and lycopene.

*Although high in saturated fats, studies have shown that red palm oil protects against heart disease and helps maintain proper blood pressure.

*Some studies suggest that it protects against neurological degeneration, osteoporosis, asthma, cataracts, and arthritis and liver disease.

So the next time you’re planning a party or just watching a movie at home, remember to get a bowl of plantain chips. Snacking, without the guilt, is always a good time!
