Just in time to round out Eating Light month, and just in time for the Super Bowl, too, here's a question from Lindsey on chips and salsa: I love eating chips and salsa, although chips aren't really all that good for me. I was wondering if you had any ideas for a chip substitute that would be great for eating with salsa? Lindsey, well, if you love chips, we first off would suggest just eating them in moderation and not substituting anything! A handful here and there won't hurt. But they can be high in fat, and if you'd really like to avoid them, here are a couple suggestions. • Kale chips - These may not be strong enough to hold up to salsa, but they sure are good. • Dried veggies, like Snapea Crisps. We love these things, and they are very low in calories and carbs. You can find them at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. • Plantain chips. A little sweeter, but crunchy like a chip. • Thin, whole-grain crostini or crackers. Readers... what would you suggest? What do you like to eat with salsa?
