You SHOULD Eat That: Beanitos.

Every Wednesday, I cover something that we should be shocked that people actually eat. I never really go into what we should be eating, culturally or nutritionally.

Well, here's an actual recommendation: Beanitos.

Beanitos are bean chips. They have been around since January of 2010. There are a few flavors to choose from, including black bean, pinto bean and flax, cheddar, and BBQ. My friend says that they have just the right crunch to them. They're newish, so they might cost a bit more than the average bag of chips, but they sound amazing. Think of them as corn chips without the corn. 

And guess what? There's no corn in them! Their company policy is to be 100% corn-free. Mind, soy is the second most overproduced crop in the world, but no corn is at least a step in the right direction. They even advocate the labeling of all food as GMO or organic.

Finally, no, I have not tried these yet. A friend of mine is a huge fan of them. I still support their sentiment as long as they are honest about it. Buy them if you support organic food, proper food labeling, and the busting of the food factory that dominates the U.S. Vote with your dollar; big companies listen. This is not a matter of my personal taste so much as it is "rage against the food machine."

Support the cause these guys have going. Your dollar matters. Whether they taste good or not is a matter of personal preference. Point is, give beans a chance!
