Yesterday i was shopping and spotted some multigrain tortilla chips. Are these healthier than regular. I found some salsa that has 20 calories for 2 tablespoons. lol i'm finding myself becoming calorie obsessed already and it's only been a week lol. O/t but i jsut wanted to add that i love this board and it is really motivating me to lose the weight. I can see myself in a sexy swimsuit by summer lol

Multigrain are better for nutrients, but you still need to watch the fat. If they are fried, they are still cooked in oil and not so healthy for you. If they are baked they are much better.

is it from Tostitos? I started buying them only because my family actually likes the taste... but I was reading the label and it's really not much different then the regular one.

What you can do that it's even better for you. You can buy whole wheat tortillas and pop in the oven.

Preheat broiler and get out a large cookie sheet for toasting tortilla chips. Spray with Pam Olive Oil (lightly), then cut into triangles. Arrange in single layer on cookie sheet and toast under the broiler, about 3-4 minutes per side. Watch them carefully, because they get too dark rather quickly. Chips will seem soft when you take them out of the oven, but they harden and crisp as they cool.

We do that with corn tortillas too so they taste more like the nacho chips but are baked and not fried.

Ana! What an awesome idea! I would have never thought to do that and I had pretty much given up on tortilla chips. I am going to have to try that.

Yes it was from Tostitos and guesss what. After i posted this question i ran back to the store got them and a jar of salsa ( 10 calories for each tablespoon). I got home got me out 20 calories of salsa ( 2 tablespoons ) loked at the back of the chips to see the serving amount... 8 freakin chips lol. I used to so much more lol, i don't think i'll be buying this anymore anytime soon lol. Right when it started to get good, boom it was all gone and i was left with salsa lol. The abked toritilla chips sound great, i'll definately have to try that some time sooN!

yeah.. it was too good to be true. DH and kids like the taste of it and since it's slightly (I mean really slightly) healthier i keep buying it for them.. but I hardly touch them.. I just make my own whole wheat chips.
