Veggie Chips are Almost Enough to Replace Ruffles. Almost.

You know what is awesome? Veggie chips. I’m eating veggies I never would have eaten before (albeit in chip form).

I’m on a detox this week, so I can pretty much only eat vegetables and fruits, not much else. Fun times. But, I was at the store yesterday, and in desperate need of a change from a salad (with no bacon–oh, the inhumanity!) at lunch, and sauteed zucchini and mushrooms for dinner. I’m a chip lover normally, so I was trying to figure out what I could dip into hummus or guacamole, while sticking to my detox. I came across the almighty veggie chips! I could not stop eating them when I got home, dipping into garlic hummus. Ridiculous. I know I could make them myself, but I am way too lazy to mandoline-slice vegetables I have to go to a specialty produce store to find.

The furthest I go with that stuff is slicing up corn tortillas and baking them to make chips.

So, this will apparently be the way that I eat beets, taro, sweet potato, and some other things I can’t pronounce (lies, I can, but I’m too lazy to go look at the bag).

What healthy things do you like to snack on? I need more suggestions. Detox only goes another 4 days, but we can always use healthy suggestions, especially for the kids.
