Re: Frito's

corn is a grain, its bad for you.

you can find numerous sugar-free jerky and other meat snack items online. We get some from U.S. Wellness

For example: http://www.grasslandbeef.com/Detail.bok?no=845

We buy almost all our meat from them, they ship it to our door.

woops, WFS link

Re: Frito's

I guess I should re-state my question. I think I didn't express what I was looking for very well. Let's remove brand names and look at ingredients:

Question:

In the eyes of the paleo diet, is

"whole corn, corn oil, and salt"

any better or worse than

"Enriched Bleached Wheat Flour [Flour, Reduced Iron, B Vitamins (Niacin, Thiamine Mononitrate (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Folic Acid)], Corn Syrup, Sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Water, Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable and/or Animal Shortening (Soybean, Cottonseed and/or Canola Oil, Beef Fat), Whole Eggs, Dextrose. Contains 2% or Less of: Modified Corn Starch, Glucose, Leavenings (Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Baking Soda, Monocalcium Phosphate), Sweet Dairy Whey, Soy Protein Isolate, Calcium and Sodium Caseinate, Salt, Mono and Diglycerides, Polysorbate 60, Soy Lecithin, Soy Flour, Cornstarch, Cellulose Gum, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Sorbic Acid (to Retain Freshness), Yellow 5, Red 40"

for you, or are they both equal no-nos/cheats?

Re: Frito's

I'd say just as bad, though the corn chips are probably better regarding chemicals/soy, etc.

Re: Frito's

Thanks Christina. I just was seeing if I could make a "less bad" choice.

Re: Frito's

They were delicious! Not as good as my bean and cheese burrito and my quasadilla yesterday but still pretty good.

I say they are paleo because like 75% of the people on here and all of the book authors, paleo is a term we can throw around to mean anything we want.

But seriously 4.49 for 20 nuggets that aint a bad deal!

Do you have a program or something that has the ingredients for every food ever made?! If so, can I get it. Cause you are quoting ingredient lists like crazy!!
