I haven't found any banana or plaintain chips that aren't fried. Try slicing sweet potato, beets, or turnips very thin (use a mandolin) and spray with a bit of soy sauce before baking in a single layer on a baking sheet. If you want more salt, give them a sprinkle when they come out.

Aahhh chips!! How I love them!!! How they love my behind!!!
I totally quit buying them & my kids are grown & hubby doesn't eat them so, I'm lucky there!
But, I will buy a bag of corn tortilla or pitas & making my own.
I cook both kinds the same way
Cut into triangles, spritz with water, shake a little Herbamare or seasalt on them & bake until crisp.
Then you can have delicious salsa or hummus with them!!
YUMMY!!!

HEY YA'LL !!!!

Lately I've grabbed baby carrots when I get the munchies and start to crave chips. It does help. I think I need to just find some crunchy alternatives that will be satisfying, but not unhealthy. Banana chips are a good idea, but those can be fattening, too, because aren't they baked in oil?

I love chips too.. have you considered dried banana chips? They have a little crunch like chips but are bananas! :)

When I want to reach for the chip bag.. and sometimes I just do it.. I measure out a single portion. And when I see how TINY that is for that many calories... I usually want something else instead.

Any suggestions for battling the chip addiction? A bag of chips doesn't last more than a day or two at my house. I stopped buying them, but my husband and daughter keep bringing the damn things in the house and I CANNOT RESIST. Help!!!

I was at the store last night and I had a CRAVING I mean you would have thought there was crack in it CRAVING for peaches!

I bought a single peach-- and it was the most delicious piece of fruit I've ever had in my entire life. It was so juicy I had to use a paper towel. :)

Why am I bragging about my peach?? Because for the longest time I was a candy-a-holic... a true junk food lover.. and now all I want is fruit to satisfy my sweet cravings.

If you're like me.. and you were/are addicted to crap-- give fruit a try. I'm telling you- its good stuff. After a while you will CRAVE it, WANT it, and PERFER it over your old crap.
