Savory Sweet Potato Chips

I don't know about you, but I'm always looking for healthy snacks (mainly chips..:) that I can easily make at home.  I like to chip away without the guilt...:)  And, they're lots of fun to make with kids!

Below is another yummy nutritious snack recipe from my dear friend, Pam Mahon of Chow Bella.  Pam loves teaching people the benefits and healing powers of whole foods, inspiring them to make permanent changes in their diet and lifestyle.  And, she'll create a program uniquely suited to your lifestyle.  I highly recommend her.  She's awesome!  Check her out:

Savory Sweet Potato Chips from Pam Mahon of Chow Bella, Nutrition Made Simple:

     •   1 large sweet potato, beet or favorite vegetable
     •   1/2 tsp sea salt
     •   1/2 tsp pepper
     •   1 tbsp olive oil
     •   Optional: see below

    •   Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking dish with parchment paper.

     •   Peel the skin off the sweet potato and discard.  Thinly slice the sweet potato so you have lots of thin strips of the sweet potato flesh.  Place the strips onto the parchment lined baking sheet.  Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.  Using your fingers, mix the toppings into the strips of sweet potato until evenly coated.

     •   Bake for 20-25 minutes until the edges are just turning light brown and the strips are crisp.  Remove from oven and serve immediately.

Optional:  You can make chips with any vegetable - Carrots, zucchini, beets, fennel or potato.  Experiment using different spices such as garlic salt, cumin, cinnamon, cardamom or a packaged spice blend.  Try adding fresh herbs like parsley, rosemary, thyme, dill or cilantro for added flavor.  Herbs are loaded with health benefits.

Enjoy, and as always love hearing from you!
