Try bare All Natural Crunchy Apple Chips.

3. Popcorn
Popcorn is a grain, just like rice and wheat. Try to avoid popcorn that is slathered in butter or other toppings. There are many healthy flavored popcorn brands to choose from and they are usually a much healthier option than a bag of potato chips.
