Don't be fooled by the sea of spinach chips, carrot chips, and pepper chips lining the snack aisle these days. Oftentimes these are no healthier for you than Ruffles. Most still use potato as their base, and then sprinkle in a little spinach, tomato, or pea powder for color – and not a lot of added nutrition. "The product might be called 'spinach chips,' but if you look at the ingredients list, you'll often see that there's not much spinach in there at all," says Salge Blake. "It's usually listed at the very end, and it's often just a powder." Also, regardless of whether chips are made from potatoes or another vegetable, if they're fried in saturated-fat-filled oils, steer clear.
