Diet Tips: Replace your potato chips with THESE healthy alternatives

We all have those hunger pangs between our meals where we crave something crunchy to chomp on. And when it comes to crunchy snacks, the first thing we think of is potato chips. Who doesn't love a pack full of delicious, masaledaar potato chips? But we cannot emphasise the importance of eating healthy and eating right. Potato chips might help your cravings but they're not healthy.

They are fried and full of carbs and add on extra calories to your diet. And if you're someone who absolutely loves potato chips, you might want to work on changing this habit before it destroys your diet and your health completely. It's essential to remain health-conscious and make healthy choices and avoid anything that can harm your balanced diet. Pick a healthier alternative to these unhealthy munchies and chomp on something healthy.

Here are some healthy alternatives to pick from

1. Makhana

Makhanas are healthy and light and crunchy. Moreover, you can easily get multiple flavours in Makhanas these days as they've become a popular healthy alternative to chips. They're slightly more expensive than chips but it's healthy and worth the expense.

2. Popcorn

Some freshly popped popcorn with some salt can make for a healthy alternative as it can curb your craving and leave you feeling full for a longer time.

3. Kale Chips

Kale is not very easily available in India but these days you can easily find some kale chips online as the healthy food trend grows. If not that you may want to invest in finding some fresh kale and baking your own homemade kale chips.

4. Banana Chips

Replace your pack of potato chips with a pack of fresh banana chips. Bananas are full of nutrients and are great for your health and if you bake them at home, they can be even healthier than any store-bought banana chips.

5. Beetroot Chips

Not many people like beetroot but beetroot chips can taste nearly as delicious as potato chips. You can easily buy seasoned beetroot chips in India these days or you can make some freshly baked beetroot chips as per your tastebuds!

6. Khakra

If nothing else, you can always chomp on some crunchy desi homemade khakras and another add on is that you can bake them which makes them much healthier. They also happen to be low in calories and don't add on to your calorie intake.

Khakra? Are you serious? Do not eat that. Potato is great. Just make sure your chips are oven baked, use rapeseed or olive, make sure they are free from gluten, milk, garlic, onion. The only safe foods on your list are kale chips and popcorn.

The issue is not that they are full of carbs. it's the amount of calories they have, mostly because they are fried and absorb a lot of oil. You can eat anything and not get fat as long as you burn dem' calories.
