Has anyone tried the microwave potato chips? Do sweet potato slices work the same?

I crave salt all the time. When I do, I like to snack on:

-Small microwaved sweet potato dipped in mustard
-Tuna pouch or 1/2 can of sardines--both are naturally salty and easy to snack on with a fork
-Edamame with soy sauce or salt
-Apple slices with a little cheddar cheese

Edited to add that I agree with everyone, kale chips are awesome. My favorite topping is Old Bay seasoning.

Kale chips ?!?!? I have to try this. How did you season the salt and vinegar ones?

Thanks!

Veggies with ranch dressing.
Sliced Tomatoes with yellow mustard.
Tunafish with relish, low cal mayo on crackers.

I had to laugh at your phrase "massive bunch of kale". As near as I can tell kale by its very nature only comes in massive bunches. ;-)

Does, the toasting shrink it down some?

Kale chips!

Get a massive bunch of kale, wash and dry thoroughly, sprinkle salt to taste, spread on baking sheet. Cook at 300 for 20 minutes (longer if you want crisper chips, but not too long or they burn)

Ive made salt and vinegar kale chips, I've added crushed red pepper with garlic salt. Options are unlimited!!

Or, just get a jar of pickles ;)

Great suggestions! Thank you

Cucumbers dipped in soy worked like a charm last night but I am going to keep the rest of the SOS Salty list on hand for future panicked moments.

THANKS!!
Linda

YMWV, but:

- Pickled green tomatoes.
- Kosher-style dill pickles (must be refrigerated, and do NOT contain vinegar).
- Plain spoon-sized shredded wheat with salt and seasoning to taste, toasted in the oven, if you prefer.

I always crave a texture with my salt or sweet...

if I want crunch I do air popped popcorn sprinkled with brewers yeast, garlic powder and salt
or a pickle..or pickled okra...or veggies with braggs liquid aminos which I believe is GF

savory and salty: cottage cheese with kim chi or even with just a dash of braggs

creamy and salty I always go for a piece of cheese...like others on here! or make a yogurt dip with dill and eat with veggies

Salty sweet, I make *candied nuts* small cast iron get it hot (no oil) and sprinkle a little sweetness..brown sugar or molasses or honey and a dash of salt with 1/4c unsalted nuts (even raw ones) and sometimes I even add cayenne to give it a kick.

Popcorn? Is it gluten free? I did a search on the web and you can get fluten free microwave popcorn, but I don't know if regular popcorn is gluten free.

WE make what we call PB&J Mix
Peanut butter chips, cranberries (dried) and salted peanuts
Easy, delicious and as long as you dont over indulge in the chips its still healthy

This might involve a trip to the store but i really like it.

Trailmix-
1/2 c fiber one chocolate cereal
2 oz unsalted peanuts (thats what i use, u can try pistachos or almonds)
1 tsp honey
dash of salt
(that is the base recipe but i like to experiment with different things i have like a few chocolate chips, dried fruit, or a bran cereal)

I dont like eating things with salt but sometimes i treat myself with this its sweet and salty.
The reason i say to add a dash of salt to it instead of getting salted peanuts is because the already salted peanuts come with way too much salt for someone whos trying to eat healthy and a small dash of salt usually cures my salt craving.

Cheese does it for me. Like a low fat string cheese or a Laughing Cow Baby Bell or cheese wedge. At the same time I am getting some protein, fat and calcium.

Sliced cucumber dipped into soy sauce (the salty japanese kind like Kikkoman, not the sweeter kinds like China Lily brand). This is actually really good.
