Comments:

Many people love corn and white potato chips but it is recommended to stay away from those for a variety of reasons. Corn and potato are both very starchy and high glycemic and impact blood sugar, cause insulin surges that increase inflammation throughout the body. These foods are like gasoline on a fire…they burn us up on the inside.

Additionally, most store-bought chips (even organic ones) use vegetable oils such as corn oil, soybean oil, cottonseed oil, peanut oil, sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, etc.  These oils are high in omega 6 fatty acids and are extremely inflammatory for the body as well.

Sweet potatoes are a MUCH better option when it comes to making your own chips.  Using organic butter or coconut oil is a significantly healthier choice.  Adding in anti-oxidant rich herbs and veggies makes this a fun, super delicious and nutrient dish!
