Best Keto Chips Recipes For You

Best Keto Chips Recipes For You

We all know the many benefits of a keto diet and are motivated to the new changes in our dietary habits. However, transitioning isn’t as easy, especially if you are on a high carb restricting diet. Usually, people think of a keto diet as something that is very restrictive, and you have to consume a lot of fat and protein.

The most difficult part is giving up on your favorite foods, especially those kept you company during late nights while completing school projects or presentations for office meetings. One of those things is chips. There aren’t many healthy keto friendly options available in the market and the ones that they are, are very expensive.

Chips that you have been eating until now are majorly made of starchy vegetables and are fried in oil that isn’t the healthiest for consumption. What is more disturbing is that after these vegetables and corn tortillas are sliced, they are dipped in different types of chemicals to preserve them for longer time, make them tasty, and enhance their color. Eating these chips puts you at a higher risk of lifestyle-related disorders like hypertension, hyperlipidemia, liver and renal issues, and cardiovascular dysfunctions.

One serving of 15 potato chips gives you 160 calories of energy that comes from 15 grams of net carbs and only 2 grams protein and 10 grams of fat.

What Chips are Low in Carbs?

Luckily, you don’t have to give up completely on your favorite salty snack. There are several high fat and high protein options made from foods other than starchy vegetables. Here are some low-carb chips that make ideal and healthy keto diet snacks:

1. Kale Chips

Kale Chips

Kale is a superfood, so its chips are going to be equally good. One serving of 15 kale chips contain 2.7 grams of net carbs and are usually baked olive oil, which is a healthy alternative to sunflower oil. Read the label carefully so that you don’t pick up something that it contains trans fats, sodium, or preservatives. Kale chips come in a variety of flavor but stick to salt as it doesn’t contain added sugar.

2. Pork Rinds

When you think of a perfect keto snack, the first one that comes to your mind is pork rinds. It is a delicacy made from a pig’s skin and is roasted or fried in pig fat.

It is enjoyed as pork cracklings, scratching, or greaves in the United Kingdom, chicharron in Spain, and kaiings in South Africa. An ounce of pork rinds contains 152 calories of energy, 15 grams of fat, 17 grams of protein, and no carbs at all. It is a rich source of sodium but on a keto diet, it is a good thing as your body loses a lot of sodium during the first weeks.
