DJ & A Healthy Vegetable Snacks

Carmina has rubbed on to her friend how to eat healthy snacks living in California. We come across when friends influence you to eat healthy as we begin to age you start to think how to balance our snacks. You love to eat mushroom, broccoli and potato you can eat it as a chip but the healthy version. Carmina was able to try the Original Potato Wedge kind of remind you eating a baked potato with chives. Mushroom chips are not that salty yet hard to bite into if you're an elderly.  DJ & A Healthy Snacks can be found in your Dollar Tree Store or purchase online at  DJ & A  to find out what other chips of vegetables you would like to try.
