An A-peeling Snack

Since the invention of chips in the 1800s, people from all walks of life have already collectively decided to make chips the number one snack in the world. It’s in the grocery stores and convenience stores. There might even be one in your pantry right now. Life would have been all well and good except for one thing: store-bought chips are not healthy.

Now the question is, “What’s a healthier way of enjoying chips?

Potato, Beetroon and Sweet Potato Chips made with Rosemay and Sea Salt

The Future is Homemade

We already know that store-bought chips are made in huge quantities in big factories. What we don’t know is how they are made and what is in them. The thought of a voluminous amount of potato chips cooking in oil at the same time is already scary. If we will go as far as thinking of all the by-products that create? It is enough to say “no” to store-bought chips in the future.

The safest and healthiest way to go about eating chips is to make them yourself. Today, we will give you some ideas of what chips to make and how to make them healthy and tasty. We’ll give you three different kinds of chips you can eat any time of day or night without feeling guilty.

Beetroot Chips

Beetroots are a great source of many vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, potassium, iron, manganese, folate and many more. They are also associated with many health benefits including, lower blood pressure and improved blood flow.

Ingredients:

Cooking Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees. Using a mandolin or knife, cut the beetroot into thin slices. Place in a bowl and pour olive oil over beetroot, ensuring each piece is coated and seasoned with sea salt. Allow the beetroot to rest for 30 minutes. The sea salt will draw out excess moisture from the beetroot. Place the beetroot on a baking tray lined with baking paper and rosemary. Ensure the beetroot slices are not touching each other. Turning the beetroot halfway, bake for 40 mins or until crisp.

Sweet Potato Chips

The fibre, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals in sweet potatoes offer many benefits such as improved gut health, enhanced vision and better brain function.
