    Pork rinds are good. I like fried begonia leaves. Salty and tart.

    Trader Joes has chips cooked in olive oil and they are DELICIOUS!! I get them in an occassional moment of weakness, but chips are my Achillies Heel in the Paleo world, so I try to steer away from them.

    Chips are paleo. Good roots fried in good fats are nothing to avoid for most people. Just filter out GMO, bad oils, bad roots, etc.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    make your own, they are amazing.

    the key is finding good potatoes. we use maris piper in the UK.

    I also have beetroot and sweet potato chips (we call them crisps over here)

    I just slice them thinly, place them all on baking paper with a a bit of oil and put them in the bottom of the oven on high. you can tell when they are going to turn as they have that nice crisp golden coating.

    turn the oven off, let them dry out in the oven for about 30 mins and there you go. homemade chips

    You all may want to have a look at this:

    Top Twenty Acrylamide-Rich Foods

    in particular the data table below the articles. Look at the data measured from chips made by Trader Joe's ...

    You can also have a look at this interesting article ... and laugh at what you would need in your kitchen to vacuum fry potato chips

    If its just once a week, I don't think it's a big deal, but if you must replace them, I'll put in another vote for fried pork rinds.

    Baked lotus root chips are amazing. Baked Lotus Root Chips | jugalbandi

    You can find lotus roots at Asian grocery stores. Make sure you only buy them if they look fresh. The thinner you slice them, the crispier they get, but I like them not too thin so that they're crispy on the outside but chewy on the inside.
