The Truth About Banana Chips

Horror of horrors, I’ve discovered the most dastardly trick. Banana chips are not DRIED, they are DEEP-FRIED! Needless to say I’m taking them off the recommended foods list. 2 banana chips = 140 calories! 2 chips! 140 calories! I know that we don’t count calories here at the UnDiet, but that’s just too outrageous for 2 little chips!

Thankfully there are some great substitutes for one of my favorite snacks. Banana Crisps are lightly sweetened (sigh) and baked. Roasted Plantain Chips are roasted with a little oil and no sugar. Dried Bananas are simply sliced bananas, dried with nothing added. Nothing But Bananas Flattened are dried whole bananas. All of these can be found at Trader Joes and the Dried Bananas can be found at most health food stores.

I don’t make a meal of any of these, but they are great for a little snack or on the side with a sandwich or soup.

I've always abhorred the idea that the only way to lose weight is to starve yourself, eat foods that are foreign to you, or gulp down special weight loss potions. I've proved that it is not only possible, but it's easy and fun to lose weight The UnDiet way. The UnDiet is extremely flexible, allowing you to make deviations based on your personal taste, the choices confronting you at any given time, your mood, your cooking skills and the time you have available. A gourmet cook can be happy with The UnDiet as well as those who don't know or care what saute means. You can eat out at restaurants and parties and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat olive oil, butter, cream, meat, mayonnaise and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat until you're full and still lose weight, once you've mastered the basic principles of The UnDiet.
