Hello Weight Loss Nation!
It's Concoction Friday, and I have an awesome recipe for you this week.
Last week, I talked about the beautiful, healthy & sexy Strawberry and I gave you a Strawberry with Avocado Salsa recipe.
If you missed last week's episode, get over to iTunes and listen to it right after this episode.
You'll want to eat this week's chips with that delicious Strawberry Salsa!
THIS WEEK’S EPISODE
You know the saying……”You just can’t eat one!”
I know if I open a bag of organic blue chips, it’s history! That’s why I’m giving you this choice of crunchy, chip-alternatives. Their healthier and….most important….still taste pretty good!
They will have WAY less salt than store-bought versions, and you can make some gluten free.
You know how I like SIMPLE! All you have to do is SLICKE, RUB IN OLIVE OIL, BAKE …….and the best part……start munching your all-ready portion sized snack!
For a vitamin-A-packed snack, slice up the sweet potatoes with the Mandoline Brush them with olive oil, and top with minced garlic, minced rosemary, and a little sea salt.
If you don't have time to cook, try "Food Should Taste Good" Brand. Their Sweet Potato Chips are tasty and pretty healthy.
Here's what's on the Food Should Taste Good Brand Label.
