    Sweet Potato Chips

    I've been on the PB for a little over a week and couldn't be more satisfied. I don't really crave any of my old foods and have been perfectly happy eating my fill of meats and vegetables. I do, however, eat half a sweet potato now and then do to my running, etc. I have some sweet potato chips in my cupbord and wondered what the consensus was on these and other vegetable chips.

    The sweet potato is fine, chances are they were fried in canola oil or some other frankenoil which makes them iffy.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Better than the last sweet potato chips I saw, first ingredient was corn.

    Every time I eat those premade sweet potato chips (even from reputable sources) I end up with digestive distress...I assume the oils. If I slice sweet potatoes and fry in coconut oil I have no issues. That is enough of an experiment for me!

    Frying them yourself in coconut oil is beyond awesome.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    I second this....nothing beats homemade. If you got a mandolin you can get them really thin too.

    i can't eat store-bought chips of any kind anymore because they make me queasy. i know it's the rancid oil.

    home-made chips are much awesomeness.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
