Carrot Chips- carrots are cheap about $2.99 for 5 lbs. Just slice them thin place in a microwave safe plate for about 3 minutes. Wipe the plate dry add a light coating of nonstick spray to your plate turn the carrots over and they only need 1-2 minutes more and you have chips. Finish with some fresh ground sea salt.
Potato Chips- Potatoes are forking cheap. You can usually buy a ten pound bag of spuds for less than $3.00. Potato chips cook up faster than carrots in the microwave. Just slice them thin and try 3 minutes in the microwave. Wipe out plate or bowl and potato that isn’t done put back and microwave 30 seconds at a time till done. Finish with sea salt
Pop corn not from a store bought bag with that yucky chemical goo but using dried kernels. Just 1/4 cup of kernels in a brown paper lunch bag that is folded close. Let the microwave go about 2 minutes (or when you hear the popping almost stopping) and you have cheap healthy pop corn. No fat is needed. Loose pop corn is very cheap and a 10 lb. bag will last you a year and it only cost about $1.00 a lb. I do note for the best tasting and textured pop corn you need to use the BIG kernels.
