My name is Chung-Ah and I am a pathological snacker.

It’s bad you guys. I’ll skimp on the main dish just so I have more of a calorie allowance for snacks later on.

Yeah, like I said, I’m a pathological snacker.

Fortunate for me, I just discovered Green Giant‘s very giant surprise. And no, it doesn’t come from the freezer aisle.

They have these new veggie snack chips, which are completely addicting.  They have Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips in Zesty Cheddar Flavor and it’s made with real vegetables, has 17 grams of whole grain per serving and it’s naturally flavored. They also have Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips in Sea Salt Flavor, my absolute favorite, and it’s made with real sweet potatoes, has 14 grams of whole grain per serving and the best part: it contains 40 percent less fat than regular potato chips!

So when I’m snacking the night away, especially in the 10PM-2AM zone, I don’t have to feel guilty about it. And I can feel ever better about it when I eat it with this avocado corn salsa. With just enough spiciness and a bit of tanginess, I could seriously snack on this all day, everyday!
