BTD Forums  /  Cook Right 4 Your Type  /  Dried veggie chips for weight loss
Posted by: Seraffa, Wednesday, January 18, 2012, 7:22am
Well, I'm afraid I have to ask for a source for dried veggie chips or either make them now in order to expect weight loss, being a Nonnie. Otherwise I just grab my dry compliant cereal and munch away!

I don't have a dehydrator. Used to in the past. Now all I have is the oven.

Sometimes fresh veggies are just too heavy on my stomach late at night, when as an A, I should STOP EATING ALTOGETHER.

But also, the dried veggie chips can encourage me to drink more water.

Any suggestions/recipies?

Chips even vegetables are a key "fun" but not really nutritious .... to keep the maximum vitamin and vitality of nutrients it is better to eat fresh steamed vegetables and why not go quickly on the grill if you need as it cracks a bit ... chips and vegetables will be able to for a drink ....

Kale and Chard washed and torn into workable sizes, tossed in olive oil and salt and bakes in the oven are beyond delicious.  delicate but fantastic...

you don't want to brown them just cook until they are crisp.

also you can bake asparagus same way.. they taste like french fries when browned...

you can search here on this site or google for Baked Kale chips to get a recipe.

as stated above in my first post: All I have is an oven (and 2 jobs that don't pay much!) Its winter; why are we talking about grilling?

If you don't have time to dry your own veggies, see what's available at your local stores. I know I've seen dried veggie chips at Whole Foods, but I forget if I didn't buy them because they contained corn ingredients (which may not  be a problem for you as an A) or if they were simply too expensive. I've also seen dried veggies in regular supermarkets in the baby food section, marketed for toddlers. I haven't read the ingredients, so I don't know if they contain any avoids, but it's another possible source for dried veggies.

The bottom line is that you need to stop "grabbing food and munching away." Eat when you're hungry, and don't eat when you're not hungry. Water or compliant herbal tea is a nice choice in the evening when you "want something" but aren't really hungry.
