Healthy Homemade Alternative to Potato Chips?

Good Questions

Q: I keep seeing all these articles and studies stating the obvious: eating too many potato chips will make you gain weight. I know this and I think many people with any ounce of common sense do too, but I LOVE potato chips. Is there anything I can make at home or product at the grocery store that is a healthy alternative to potato chips? I've done kale chips before and enjoy them, but something new would be great as well!

Editor: Kristin, we love these make-them-in-the-microwave potato chips. No oil needed!

DIY Potato Chips...in the Microwave

Try this with sweet potatoes as well, or even thin slices of beets, carrots, or rutabaga.

Readers, what else would you suggest to satisify Kristin's chip craving?
