Bare Organic Apple Chips

Apple ChipsI found a new healthy product that I love and want to share with you! I’m very selective, so you know it’s good if I feature it in my new blog series: “Judes’ Supermarket Highlights.”

Bare Fuji and Reds Organic Apple Chips are crunchy, tasty baked apple chips made by slowly oven-roasting organic apples. That’s it: No added oil, preservatives, or sweetener of any kind are used to make them. I admit I wasn’t looking forward to trying these chips, but as a dietitian nutritionist, that’s what I do: find great-tasting, healthy food for people.

I finally tried them after a month of sitting on my cupboard shelf and was blown away. Other apple chips I’ve had were too sweet, too oily, or just unappealing. These were different. I promptly brought them to a women’s group event to get other opinions. I wasn’t delusional either. They were an instant favorite before I even had a chance to say anything about them.

According to their website, there are also Bare Apple Chips made from Granny Smith apples. I can’t wait to try those too.

Of course, I’m not recommending that you stop eating fresh juicy apples. But I am suggesting that these apple chips may be a good substitute for processed foods like potato chips or cookies, especially when you need a nice crunch!

Oyster October

"Les Poisson, les poisson, 'ow I looove les poisson!" That Little Mermaid song is dang funny even if it is somewhat macabre... October is National Seafood Month! If you're new to Foods with Judes, you will soon find out I have a great love for our underwater friends, both to protect and to eat! Seafood has extremely positive effects on our health and brain function. You can learn more about why this is true, in addition to other clarifying mercury tidbits in a previous article, "Seafood Newsflash." I could go on for days about health benefits of different kinds of seafood, but this month's healthy challenge will focus particularly on oysters. Don't worry - you don't have to eat them raw.

15-Minute Roasted Mexican Soup

I can't get enough of this 15-minute soup. It tastes like it been roasting for hours and it has, but by Trader Joe's and not by you! It’s quick and sooo good. You might be able to find these roasted veggies at other stores, but you will for sure find all the ingredients at Trader Joe's. It's a soup-er healthy, zippy, meal hack. This soup can be left chunky or blended smooth, either way it taste soup-perb. The blended version is perfect for those picky eaters who don't appreciate onions, bell peppers or black beans. Shhhh, they'll never know if you don't tell them. Top it with cheese, cilantro, avocados and/or tortilla chips or don’t add a thing to it. It’s a flexible meal using frozen ingredients that you can keep on hand and made on the spot.
