Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips, Pico de Gallo flavor. 

Rice and Bean chips? Sounds healthy and indeed, they are SO delicious! Be sure to try them out, especially if you’re vegan.

Packaging: 9.5/10

PROPS to the packagers of these chips. The snack bags are so well designed, with earth-colored backgrounds and ”handwritten” notes pointing to different parts of the chip, emphasizing high fiver, high protein, gluten-free, and vegan qualities— ALL very attractive characteristics to Whole Foods frequenters. 

The ingredient list for the chips themselves is very brief— two different kinds of beans with rice and sunflower oil. The flavoring consists of more ingredients but they are all natural and include sea salt, celery powder, garlic powder, and tomato powder. 

Health: 9/10

These bean and rice chips are probably around 10x healthier (if not more) than regular potato chips. They are high in carbohydrates (27g per bag) and somewhat high in calories (210), but there is NO saturated fat, a good amount of protein for chips (6g), and not too high in sodium (rare). As with many of the products that I have reviewed, I approve of eating these as snacks but eat sparingly. Eating so many carbs will give you quick energy but doing so will unfortunately not fill you up as much as eating more protein. 

Flavor: 9/10

Beanfields chips are TASTY. Let me say that again: they are tasty AND healthy! That combination is so rare these days that I have to give these guys a big thumbs up. However, despite their savory flavor, I still had a mid-bag crisis when I started thinking that the flavoring was not strong enough. That was probably due to the large quantity of rice/beans that went into these chips (typical)— this would be the only reason for the 9/10 rating. 

Conclusion:

RECOMMEND! I ate a packet of these along with some pureed avocados and my soul was incredibly happy. I got my fiber, I got my protein, and man, these chips sure are tasty.
