10 Healthier Snacking Chips


Even the ads for chips dare you to eat just one. But the truth is that most of us can’t even stop at a handful, which is why these healthier snacking substitutes offer a lighter yet just as tasty alternative to salty, high calorie, and trans fatty bagged chips. All you’ll need to whip up your own batch is a thin chip slicer (such as a mondoline), a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and an oven (in many cases a toaster oven will even do the trick)…

So get munching on these ten healthier snacking chips…

1. Whole Wheat Pita

Nothing makes perfectly crisp triangles for dipping like whole wheat pita or tortillas. Simply lay flat and cut like a pizza into wedges. Brush with a little extra virgin olive oil (or leave them dry) and tossing them in the oven for 5 minutes until toasty brown. I like to dip mine in hummus or a yogurt dip mixed with fresh herbs like dill and chives.
