Chip alternative

I am down about 30 lbs. I love salsa but all the chips I've looked at are high carbs. Using celery or cucumbers as the "Dipper" just isn't the same. Anyone know of a low carb chip alternative?.

Cheese chips

Found idea on pinterest. I made mine in the oven using pre-sliced cheddar cheese cut into fourths. Make sure to use parchment paper.

Raw. You can buy the whole thing—warning, it’s ugly—and cut it up yourself which is what I did for years. Now I’m often lazy and buy it precut at Trader Joe’s. Yum!

OMG! I just discovered jicama last summer and it changed my world. I don’t know who loves it more; Mason or me. That boy is a serious food whore.

I started making Parmesan crisps for my guacamole and those guys are a minor miracle too.

Fried pork rinds, like the kind made by Frito-Lay called Baken-ets. Zero carbs!

How about Lays Poppers? 24 of them are only 2 WW points!

I'm going to look for this and give it a shot. I'm about 90 miles from the nearest Trader Joe's so I'll be cutting it up myself.

Pour a jar of salsa over boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cover them, and bake them. The chicken comes out moist and you get to pile on the salsa! If you're eating potatoes, it's good as a baked potato topper.

If you’re serious about weight management, you might want to consider making kale chips.
Quote:
Directions
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Lay on a baking sheet and toss with olive oil and salt. Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes. Serve as finger food.
