My problem with processed chips/crisps, crackers and other "junk food " is not the nutritional label but the ingredient list. When I see ingredients that I can not pronounce my stomach gets queasy.
Last year I had a nice crop of flat leaf Kale. Toss with EVOO, sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Cook on a sheet pan in the oven until crisp. WOW
I have pan roasted Brussels sprouts for years. I always love the leaves that fall off and get crispy. Now I make Brussels sprouts chips
Break the sprouts apart and treat the leaves like Kale.
For a treat sprinkle sprouts or Kale with Nutriential Yeast or grated Parmesan Reggiano.
G loves popcorn. I have finally convinced him to get plain microwave popcorn
Dump into a bowl and season with salt, pepper and nutritional yeast
Sometimes smoked paprika
I use nutritional yeast on vegetables, popcorn in scrambled eggs.
It adds a cheesy, buttery flavor without any Cheese or butter
We've got a couple of go to snacks in this household. Celery features in the top 3, but that doesn't really apply, in there with it however are air popped fav-va beans, red pepper and chilli flavour and baked black beans (whole pods), smokey paprika flavour. There's a similar green pea pod one in wasabi and another in chilli that sometimes venture into the shopping trolley.
Hubby also has a soft spot for Cobbs slightly salted, slightly sweet popcorn. We stopped making our own when my dairy allergy reared its ugly head.
But I restrict consumption to one packet a week (everything seems to have 4-5 servings in them) unless there's a public holiday like today.
