SWEET POTATO CHIPS


There is a great new company at PapaLena.com that has beet chips and sweet potato chips. Both have about 9 carb grams per serving, and both are low on the glycemic index. Just remember to have equal grams of protein with them - a slice of ham, or turkey, or chicken, or a protein drink or lowfat ounce of cheese.
If you want to make your own sweet potato chips, here is the recipe:
BAKED SWEET POTATO CHIPS
Heat oven to 350. Peel sweet potato (works with yams too) and slice thin, as if for a thick potato chip. Cover a cookie sheet or baking pan with foil, sprayed lightly with vegetable spray. Lay sweet potato chips on the foil, rubbing each one slightly in the veggie spray. Then lightly spray the tops with veggie spray, sprinkly with your favorite spice (I use garlic salt or something called crazy salt). Bake for 20 minutes, turn, sprinkle that side, and bake for another 10 minutes.
Enjoy without guilt!

Yay! I can have something crunchy and salty when I have PMS and not go off my low glycemic index diet! Thanks Martha!

I would love to ask you a few questions-first, how many grams of carbs a day should I be aiming for? I am not diabetic, I am doing low g.i. for weight loss. I try to keep a serving of food to under 25 grams of carbs per serving, is that about right?

Secondly, where do you buy things like high protein vanilla pudding that you used in the cheesecake with strawberries recipe? If you could reply by email at elizabeth@table4five.net, I would really appreciate it!
