Lay's has many varieties of chip flavors like “Classic BLT”, “Barbecue” and “Sour Cream and Onion”. The ingredients list for these chips is a mile long! Although Lay's has begun to use more “natural flavorings” in their recipes, these flavorings consist of what they call “bacon type flavor” and “lettuce type flavor” which of course are all produced in a lab.
Because potato chips can become addicting and the serving size we actually eat is usually doubled or tripled, some find it best to stay away from chips like Lay's altogether. Although Lay's has a “low sodium” version of their chips, most contain an overabundance of salt.
Sweet Potato Sweet potato, a root vegetable often called a yam, is not really a yam at all, but rather a distinct variety of the Ipomea Batata family. Cultivated for thousands of years in the Western Hemisphere, sweet potatoes have become an important part of traditional American cuisine.
