At a dinner party a couple of weeks ago

The hostess served the best chips as appetizers. What ARE they .. and where can they be found?
She smiled, “Trader Joe's.”
My next visit, they found a place in my cart
Kala brought something similar to our Grazing Food Swap in September. She brought not one, but TWO kinds of healthy, homemade snacking chips.
My husband swapped for one, and I swapped for the other
It was my first time trying an alternative to the packaged, processed potato chips found at the grocery, and I was pleasantly surprised.
I went online to see what people had been up to in my newly found frontier of turning veggies into chips. Sweet potatoes, carrots, beets, even leafy greens like kale and spinach
How very cool
It seems, no matter what vegetable one uses, the process is essentially the same. Lay slices on a baking sheet, brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and bake for about 30 minutes. If a bit of fancy is required, simply brush with olive oil and sprinkle on a favorite seasoning
The chips stay fresh in an airtight container for several days. Guilt-free snacking at its finest.
ps: I'm thinking a Greek yogurt blend for dipping?
I've decided, veggie chips are going to find a happy home in our kitchen in the not so distant future.
Thank-you Kala, for introducing us!

I have had an addiction to veggie chips for many years. I absolutely LOVE the Terra chips, but hate to spend the money on them. Also, they do contain quite a bit of fat. Making my own allows me to buy my produce at a reasonable price (farmers market or my garden) and use the amount of oil and salt I deem appropriate.
LOVE the idea of a yogurt dip! mmmmmm!!!
