Salt-free, fat-free potato chips: why not make your own

I’ve written about salt-free potato chips I’ve bought as a substitute for the regular potato chips I once loved. But while they were salt-free, they still are fat laden, so I’ve stayed away from potato chips, by and large.

Recently, however, I found a microwave device that promised me potato chips in the micro in minutes, no oil needed. The idea was too good for me to pass up, so I bought TopChips by Mastrad for $20.95 at a kitchen store.

Salt-free tortilla chips – they’re available; watch the fat though

Chips of almost any kind are likely off your menu if you’re on a restricted diet. Most are loaded with salt and, depending on how they’re made, fat as well. Yet when you crave something crunchy (and you don’t eat nuts like me) what can you do?

Salt-free tortilla chips are out there. I’ve found them at both Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. The Trader Joe’s variety, TJ’s orgnaic white corn tortilla chips, has 0 mgs of salt and 7 grams of fat per ounce. The Whole Food option, 365 chips, also white corn based,  has 0 mgs of sodium and 6 grams of fat per ounce, so the Whole Foods brand is the better choice, given it’s lower fat content. Each has zero sugar.

Here's what one ounce of tortilla chips looks like. Is it enough for you?
