Better Off Well




Healthy Nachos? Yes!

Sure, you can make nachos like these...

But these are not likely to leave you feeling very well...

and why put all that highly processed and chemical-laden junk into your body when there are healthier alternatives?

Except for a little chopping, these nachos are easy, and have received rave reviews from both women and picky husbands.

Be sure to use organic corn chips, as most corn grown in this country is genetically-modified, which is being linked to the growing number of food allergies in our children, though scientists are not sure why.
