Trust me.. You would want to know how to make these healthy chips (especially if you love tortilla chips). Not only does it requires only 2 ingredients, but it is also so easy, with only 5 steps! 👏
I’m always looking for healthier alternative to food that I enjoy, and potato chips is no exception. What are the best chips for you? Mine has got to be the Kettle’s Jalapeno Pepper Chips. I still do have them once in a while to be honest. And I love that I do not feel guilty like I used to when I have them. I’ve come a long way, and sticking by my 80:20 rule (I hate to call it a rule though, cos it makes it sound restrictive when it’s really not) has really given me freedom in food that I’ve never experienced before and it has definitely fostered the healthy relationship I have with food now. Part of my journey include finding joy in food that nourishes my body and taste delicious at the same time. So it’s really no “sacrifice” as many would think of it.
As much as I would love to have kettle chips everyday I know that isn’t going to be good for my body and it will just make me feel sick overtime. So you can just imagine my excitement when I found a way to make eating chips a healthy thing! 😄
Yes, I’m not joking. Chips = Healthy. There, I’ve said it! 😱
I can have these for my breakfast if I want to. It fits a breakfast profile perfectly because these are the ingredients..
This ingredient is no stranger to us, it is rich in complex carbohydrates, fiber and Vitamin A. Found these facts on a site which I thought you guys might find useful;
- Sweet potatoes may help maintain a healthy blood pressure and protect against cancer.
- The high fiber content of sweet potatoes helps prevent constipation.
- One medium, baked sweet potato with skin contains just 103 calories.
- The fastest way to prepare a sweet potato is in the microwave.
- Although there is much confusion, sweet potatoes are not related to yams.
I guess you would already know by now that I love replacing any form of flour with grounded oats. I personally do not enjoy eating oats on its own so creating recipes with grounded oats has given me a way to benefit from its amazing nutritional profile.
Besides being rich in fiber, do you know oats contain an antioxidant compound called Avenanthramides, which is anti-inflammatory, promotes a healthy heart, and eases itch and irritants (good for skin - we get why there are so many oat masks out there now!)
See! These chips are made from great ingredients. Check out the recipe below;
