I am a lover of healthy snacks, but sometimes a girl craves a handful of greasy, salty potato chips. Ya feel? Lucky for you (and me), I found a recipe for homemade potato chips that are low fat, cheap, and made in your microwave! Yummy snack here we come!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large russet potato, scrubbed and sliced thinly16117462567_751b5aacf8_b
  • Salt
  • Optional: olive oil and other seasonings.

Slice your potato very thin into 1/8 or 1/16 inch slices. Put the slices directly into cold water and let them sit for 5 minutes, then rinse them in cold water until clear. Use paper towels to dry the slices, then line a glass plate or tray with parchment paper and arrange the slices on it. Make sure they do not touch each other or they will stick together. If you like you can sprinkle your slices with salt or seasonings, or you can even brush them with olive oil. Place them in the microwave and cook them on high for 3 minutes. After that, flip the slices over and microwave them on 50% power for about 2:30. If you see slices starting to turn brown, take them out and continue cooking the rest. Keep doing these steps with the rest of your potato slices until they are all cooked. If you don’t gobble them up right away, store them in an airtight container for future snacking!

Simple snacking at its finest.

As some of you may know, I recently began living the vegan lifestyle. Vegan means no animal products and dairy products and things of that sort. I wanted to start living a healthier lifestyle! One of my favorite vegan snacks is bananas. If you follow my Instagram then you have seen the picture of me surrounded by bananas! I have been using all kinds of recipes to work bananas into my diet, and this smoothie is one of my findings! It is so nutritious and delicious!

-1 avocado

– 2 frozen bananas

– 1 cup vanilla yogurt

– ½ cup orange juice

Now I know some of you went “EWWW” when you saw the word “avocado,” but you cannot even taste it. Plus, avocados are an amazingly awesome source of vitamins and healthy fats. All you have to do is combine all of your ingredients into a blender, blend them until it is all smooth and there are no lumps, and viola! You have a delicious, nutritious snack on your hands!

If you make this sweet treat comment below and let me know what you think!
