Wednesday’s Helping: Pickle Chips instead of Potato Chips

A healthy snack to satisfy munchies

If you’re avoiding fatty potato chips or yummy cheese puffs, the Mixed Stew crew suggests snacking on pickled treats instead to lower your calorie intake. Young papaya and young mango have the crisp bite and tangy flavor that’s ideal for pickling. A little goes a long way and you can even pack small servings in ziploc bags with lunch for taking into work. Additionally, each serving contains all-natural fruit nutrition and fiber that’s not available in processed food items, such as crackers or even pretzels. One of the best advantages in making homemade pickled fruit is that you can control the pickling ingredients that go into preparing and seasoning each new batch.
