With Memorial Day right around the corner, picnic season is about to get into full swing! I can’t wait because my husband and I spend many summer weekends at a nearby lake grilling. However, a lot of picnic food can end up being fatty, such as pasta dishes, prepackaged foods, brats, etc. My husband and I try to make conscious decisions regarding the foods that we bring, especially since we picnic so frequently. A couple of things that you can always count on finding in our coolers are fresh fruits and vegetables. They are healthy and easy to pack. Just wash, cut, pack, and go! If you want to change things up, bring along some corn, peppers, or zucchini and roast them on the grill for different flavors! We also bring whole grain crackers or chips, because there has to be something salty to snack on. 🙂 Much better than salads laden with mayo and prepackaged cookies and chips that you aren’t sure of what is even in them!
That is why I am excited to share these Kettle Brand potato chips with you! They use only natural ingredients with no trans fat, no artificial coloring, and no artificial flavoring. Everything is real! Just the way I like it (and the way it should be!)! Not only are Kettle Brand Chips all real, they also pioneered the kettle cooking style and have been making small batches for 30 years in Willamette Valley, OR. Other brands have tried to create knock-offs, but no other “kettle style” chip is a Kettle Brand Chip! Have a gluten-intolerance or just want to stay gluten-free? Well eat up, because Kettle Brand Kettle Brand Chips are gluten-free! One other great thing about these Kettle Brand Chips is that Kettle Brand uses no GMO ingredients. They have been using non-GMO ingredients since their founding in 1978 and have been working with the Non-GMO Project since 2009 to verify their products and ensure the integrity of their ingredients. Kettle Brand carries a wide variety of flavors ranging from Spicy Thai™ to Buffalo Bleu and Sweet Onion to Fully Loaded Baked Potato. With so many different flavors to choose from, you are sure to find a flavor that will pair perfectly with your next picnic! Be sure to check out their Facebook page to stay up to date on the newest flavors.
We tried the Reduced-Fat Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper, Jalapeno, and Red Chili. My husband loved the heat and kick of the Jalapeno chips and the spiciness of the Red Chili chips. I preferred the flavor of the fresh ground pepper and the fact that they were reduced-fat without tasting like they were low fat! Knowing that we had these flavorful chips to munch on the next time we grilled out, we knew we had to make a burger that would complement the chili and jalapeno chips. These chili lime feta turkey burgers did just that! The burgers are stuffed with feta crumbles, chopped jalapeno, chili powder, and a splash of fresh lime juice! Spread on some creamy cilantro lime sauce, top with lettuce and tomato and you have a new summer favorite! Do you love to go on picnics?
