Guilty pleasure du jour . . .

My friend Amber mentioned Pacific Natural Foods' almond milk on her lovely Girl Healthy blog this week. Since I needed some groceries I thought I'd give it a go. I typically use rice milk since I cut out a lot of dairy to manage my asthma better, but I like almond milk and was interested in trying this affordable brand at Trader Joe's.

And this is how my love affair began. While looking for the milk, I passed the potato chip aisle. I don't know how it knew my name, but this plump, beautiful bag of sweet potato chips began calling to me. How can I ignore a calling, so I purchased a bag and tore into it in the car on the way home (one of many reasons why I should eat before shopping for groceries). Oh. My. Mercy. Each delicious chip makes my tongue sing. Trader Joe's claims on the bag that "they're made with fresh, vibrantly colored sweet potatoes, and they retain the sweet potato's delicately sweet flavor." They are divine! When I got home, I tried them with a bit of pineapple cream cheese. Now while this combination probably nulls and voids the low sodium, low sugar, good fiber qualities of the chip, your lips will want to kiss themselves for getting to savor such a treat. I hope I can refrain from finishing the bag this afternoon.


Kissing my new guilty pleasure, the love of my day . . .

I was a full fledged adult before discovering the deliciousness of sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes with coconut, sweet potato fries (my favorite), and sweet potato chips..... yummmmmm!
