vegetable chips

Vegetable chips have a health advantage over potato chips because they can be dried rather than fried. Drying the chips helps to create a naturally delicious, wholesome snack with more vitamins and nutrients than fried potato chips.

Whether or not vegetable chips are healthier than potato chips depends on the vegetable in question. Potatoes are typically not as nutrient-rich compared to beets, parsnip and carrots, all three of which make for nourishing and delicious vegetable chips. Jess, graze nutritionist

The bottom line is, switching fried potato chips for dried vegetable chips, you’re giving your body more vitamins and minerals, but still getting that delicious savory crunch.
