That is a rough one as I love them too!! They make different products that are better for you than traditional chips but still taste alright. Sweet Potato chips for exampe. There are these things called 'pops' in the health food aisle which are also tasty. And we buy non salted pretzels. Of course, there are baked chips too which are a bit better.
You could cut or buy carrots in coins and dip them into dip like a chip.
Indulge occasionally but make them a treat. good luck
I also like chips...I would not eat them regularly but keep them as a treat,. they also have some really tasty thin crispy chips now, we love with some low cal dip...I am lucky in the fact I really love veg and will eat them with a dip more than chips..
Try popchips. They are low calorie, and also very tasty. They come in cheese, sour cream and onion, salt and vinegar, barbecue, etc. They are my go to snack whenever I'm craving chips, and with only about 120 calories per 21 chips, they are definitely a calorie bargain!!
Another thing you can do is make sweet potato wedges! (this probably works with regular potato too but sweet potato has a better nutrition value):
-1 large sweet potato
-salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
-mixed herbs (rosemary,basil, whatever you like even cumin or chili powder)
1. preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fareinheight
2. peel potato and cut into wedges
3.mix together the wedges, olive oil, salt, pepper, and spice of your choice
4.place wedges on flat baking tray that is wrapped with foil and bake for 25 minutes.
They should be tender and golden at the end. This makes about 2 portions.
Try Special K chips.. A lot better than regular chips and only about 60 calories! If not that, smart pop popcorn is a good alternative. You get your salt fix without being super unhealthy. You can eat it as long as you use moderation.
