Do you love the crunch or the saltiness of Chips? Yes potato chips, tortilla chips, pita chips, any chip out there. What is it about chips that you LOVE or need?


I have never been a fan of potato chips, but get me tortilla/ corn chips or pita chips and it is all over! So when trying to lose weight and get healthy I had to find some alternatives to fix my craving of salty and crunchy.  Here are just a few that I came up with, because these are what I like, so I hope they help you as well!




  • Dried Fruit, especially Banana or Apricot Chips
  • Fruit: Apples, Peaches, Jicama,  and Pineapple (many others as well)
  • Veggies: Carrots, Celery, Cucumbers, Peppers, Edamame



  • Nuts and Seeds, sea salt or unsalted (always seem to work for me)
  • Popcorn (homemade is best, but always un buttered) make your own and you can spice it how you like =)
  • Rice Cakes (work for crunchy as well)


  1. Take a sweet potato, zucchini, red potato, egg plant, or any other veggie that you can think of- slice thinly, drizzle with EVOO, add sea salt/ Himalayan salt, bake in oven on 225 for 30-50 minutes, rotate and bake for additional 20 min or until crisp
  2. Slice apples, peaches, or any fruit, sprinkle with cinnamon and  bake for 30-50 min on 300
  3. Take Kale cut, rinse, pat dry with paper towel and drizzle with EVOO and any spice you may like and bake on 400 for 15 min or follow recipe
  4. Take chickpeas and roast Follow this recipe
  5. Juice or make a smoothie with your favorite fruits and veggies! (My favorite is Carrots, apple, and beets!)

Baked Kale Chip: The Potato Chip Alternative

So my family loves Potato Chips and that has been a “snack” I do not keep in my house! So a friend of mine has been talking about Kale Chips for a month now… so when I was at the Market- I picked up some Kale!!! Yesterday I was in the fridge and I wanted something salty… Pulled out my Kale and Turned on the oven!

Directions: Set oven @ 350, Grab a bunch of Kale, Cut stem off, Break/Cut Kale into bit size pieces, Wash and Dry in salad spinner. Place kale on baking sheet- drizzle Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Sea Salt (or whatever seasoning you would like) *** I also added some garlic powder and Parm Cheese (made it too salty for me) Bake for 10-12 minutes and take out (want to cook until slightly brown but not burnt)

They were delicious!!! My daughter had me make more!!!

I hope you can substitute your favorite potato chip for a healthy Kale Chip!!
