I have re-discovered jicama! It's sweet and crunchy! Great sliced up or cubed.

I just recently found snow peas at my grocery store, not exactly chips (not chips at all really), but they're crunchy and only 13 calories for half a cup! I eat them plain, but you could dip them in something?

Popcorn! One of my favorite snacks is popcorn, so I have cut out calories by making it myself! I don't have an air popper yet, so I've been popping a large pot on the stove with some sunflower oil (it's really not filled with calories, the amount of popcorn I yield vs. the amount of sunflower oil I use makes it to be about 20 calories per cup). I usually season it with a spritz of butter spray (only a spritz, if you start drowning it in butter it gets unhealthy!) and a little seasoning of my choice. My favorites are cayenne pepper, garlic seasoning or Ms. Dash no salt added hot and spicy (I like things spicy if you hadn't noticed). I have a handful of that every now and then and it's delicious!

I hope you're kidding! Chips don't fit very well into a weight loss program. Occasionally, maybe once a week, but not regularly. Try some celery - it's very crunchy.

I'll have a few almonds or a piece of fruit instead of chips.

100 calorie bag of popcorn (if you have somewhere to pop it)...or you can pre-make some air popped popcorn with your favorite topping and pack it with your lunch :)

I still like my chips also. I do have the Special K chips often. What I do for my chips buy a bag of the 1 oz bags of chips. I limit myselft to one bag. It helps with portion control. I have noticed that once you open a big bag of chips, I tend to eat a lot. But with the 1 oz size bags that are perfect portion control.

Special K chips have 90 calorie packs and I find them to be just enough. The other thing I've been having are Pretzel Crisps - they come in buffalo flavor, jalapeno, everything and a few others. About 110 calories for about 15 and 1.5g of fat.
Ooooh, I kale chips! I gotta admit, I'd love potato or tortilla chips, & occasionally I indulge, but eating raw veggies fills me up SOOOOO much more than chips! Just sayin'.

pop chips are pretty good and calories are within a good range. I think its like 130 for 18 chips?? My fav are the BBQ ones. also veggie chips are pretty good with salsa.

So, I've been really good about what I eat. However, I still haven't found an alternative to the convenience and satisfying crunch of chips. I tried more vegetables, but they didn't cut the mustard. I've successfully found a "healthier" corn tortilla chip, and am making sure to only eat 1 serving for 140 calories. But I would love to find a lower calorie option that fills the crunch and convenience I crave.. Any suggestions?
