  • Corn Tortilla Chips

    My parents recently purchased a bag of Organic White Corn Tortilla Chips from Trader Joe's and I was wondering is it primal?

    The ingredients are White Corn, Lime, Vegetable Oil, and Salt.

    I know that flour is and grains are bashed, but what about these tasty chips?

    Corn is a grain and vegetable oil is a no-no too. A rare indulgence won't make you grow two heads or anything.

      If you want to indulge in chips, Terra chips are made of root veggies. Only problem with them are the oils they're cooked in, but otherwise they're pretty Primal.

        Those helped me reach the 255 that prompted me to find PB and lose 50 lbs--partially by dropping such things. They are VERY tasty, but I've found them to be utterly unsafe. :-)
        Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

          My experience with corn chips of any kind is that they are quite addicting! So even if u indulge as a cheat, beware, as u might end up eating the whole bag before you know it!

            Corn - no go

            Vege oil - no go

            Lime - yes

            Salt - yes

            I guess you can only lick the surface of the chips, haha...

                Haha, the comments are cracking me up--tortilla chips are one of my biggest obstacles, too (I have three amazing and authentic Mexican restaurants in close proximity). These chips are a grain-based food like any other, so just think of it like a piece of toast or something and make your decision that way, dependant on your needs and goals.

                Personally I've been allowing a few here and there when I go out, but I KNOW "a few" is way more than I think and as of this week I'm pretty much cut off. Besides, I'd rather just have the guac on a pile of carne asada and grilled veggies

                  lots of lit out there on the cancer causing effects of vegetable/seed oils that most chips are fried in. and corn is not primal.

                    I know the feeling. Thankfully, my preferred mexican food joint will give me lard fried pork rinds if I ask.

                      I have been giving tortilla chips some thought today... Stay with me on this one...
                      Tortilla chips come from tortillas (?), which can be made from flour, and I'm reading on this forum there is almond flour, which I'd never heard of before, so this leads me to wonder if there are some sort of almond flour tortilla chips out there?? If not, can somebody please make some that I can eat with salsa? That would be great, thanks.

                        Just found this recipe for Almond Flour Chips...The chips sure look passable.

                          Thanks! I may have to try making some, although I'd prefer just buying them seeing as how I'm a little lazy. Has anyone ever seen some at Whole Foods?

                              I haven't tried these cheese crisps, but they look like something you could eat salsa with: http://www.joyfulabode.com/2010/04/2...crisps-recipe/

                              I also love kale chips, but they are to thin and flaky for dipping.
