Jackson Honest chips

Recommended Posts

Why are Jackson's Honest chips not allowed? It is a potato, sea salt, and coconut oil. Is this because most commercially prepared chips are unhealthy for you? Or maybe a mental thing that eating chips will lead to worse eating habits? Just trying to understand.. if it is a mental thing I am okay to eat them lol.

NO commercially prepared chips of any kind are allowed on the Whole30 and ddeep frying your own thinly sliced veggies to make 'chips' is also not allowed, however baking thin slices of potato or kale leaves is fine.

The idea is that we want to change the relationship with food and people do not eat one or two chips and then put the bag back... they are food without breaks, they're deep fried, they're not nutrient sound and they do not fit into the spirit (or rules) of the Whole30.

Potato chips are taking it right up to the razor's edge, whether they're fried in coconut oil or any kind of oil.   Potato chips are the forbidden fruit of the vegetable world and  they cause inflammation in the body.

The dis-Honest kind of chips have preservatives, artificial flavorings, dyes and sugar. The virtuous and simple potato would never do you like that.
