What can I substitute for potato chips?
Asked by on Feb 05, 2009
My big problem is that I love potato chips. Whenever I eat a sandwich, I have to have them or I can’t eat. What can I do to fix this problem?
When it comes to eating potato chips, you can:
- Continue to eat a small portion of potato chips. Everyone has discretionary calories. It’s your choice
- Eat a healthier salty-crunchy food: Baked Lays, pretzels, crisp bread, mini rice cakes, popcorn, or baked pita chips from a recipe
- Eat a salt-free crunchy food: apple, sugar snap peas, baby carrots, radishes, sunchokes (Jerusalem artichokes), jicama, vegetable chips, popcorn, unsalted pretzels and rice cakes
- Eat Baked Kale Chips: People rave about this recipe and say it is the best substitute for potato chips
Review your options and decide which one feels best. Now give it a try. When you shop for chips, choose those that are lowest in saturated fat, trans fat, total fat, and sodium.
