LIVING CLEAN | NON-GMO SNACKS

If you're looking for better quality snacks to munch on while watching TV, then you've come to the right place. I enjoy snacking. Everyone who knows me, knows that potato chips are my guilty pleasure. Since I snack a little too regularly, it's beneficial to at least be eating snacks that are "cleaner". By "cleaner" I mean non-genetically modified, using high quality ingredients, zero trans fats and no additives/preservatives. If your budget allows for organic snacks, then the more to you but I understand not everyone can. I've done some research on my favourite "clean" snacks that I eat and I've listed them here if you're open to trying a better quality snack. Happy snacking!

Note: I'm not sponsored by any of these brands.

Why I love this company? First potato chip brand to be verified as using Non-GMO ingredients by the Non-GMO Project. They use healthy sunflower and safflower oils and they convert the wasted vegetable oil into biodiesel to run their company vehicles. For the most part they run their plant off solar panels on their rooftop. They purchase wind power to avoid using electricity in their US plants. They're aiming to make their chip bags biodegradable but haven't reached that goal yet; however they reduced their materials by 20% by removing a paper layer in their bags.
