Healthy Crunchy: Three Guilt-Free Snacks You Can Make at Home When I snack, I try to stick to fresh fruits and vegetables, but sometimes I want something with crunch, not the moist crunch of a carrot but the carb-filled crunch of a potato chip. When I get really desperate for a treat, I leave the pre-packaged snacks–with their fat, chemicals, and processed ingredients–on the grocery store shelves and make my own healthy snacks using natural ingredients that I usually have in my pantry. My taste in snacks runs from the very simple (baked tortilla chips) to the unusual (roasted okra). But my very favorite, the one crunchy snack that almost everyone loves, is also the easiest to make: microwave potato chips. Microwave Potato Chips Ingredients medium russet potato parchment paper salt optional seasonings: chili powder, Creole seasoning, Old Bay seasoning, etc. Instructions Using a mandolin or v-slicer, slice one medium russet potato (peeled, if you like) as thinly as possible, taking care that all slices are the same thickness.

Buffalo Cauliflower with Blue Cheese Dip In a culture of fast food, quick and empty calories, and mind-twisting marketing, it’s sometimes hard to decipher what’s true, real, and good. Before we started eating whole foods, I sometimes felt like life was empty and tasteless. Greasy takeout and TV dinners were unfulfilling, but I wasn’t quite sure why. Discovering real foods and real people and the taste of fresh brewed drip coffee and a fresh salad of garden vegetables and tomatoes off the vine and local cheese and hearty whole grains opened up a whole new world to us. A world that tasted fresh and honest and REAL. It would be easy to turn your back on everything from that other culture. There are several versions of buffalo cauliflower floating around the web, and we found it a interesting take on a healthy alternative to a gameday food (looking ahead to the Super Bowl in a few weeks). And, what’s great about whole foods is that they’re also delicious — so they don’t taste like a sacrifice. Love roasted cauliflower?
