low carb chips or crisps

Green No Carb Crisps

I’m following a low carb diet at the moment. I’m not allowed anything involving rice, pasta, potatoes, bread. I’m not allowed anything with sugar, and that includes fruit, unfortunately. I am allowed meat, nuts and plenty of green vegetables.

At first, I was grumpy and felt a bit run down, but I adjusted quickly and it’s made a big impact: I’ve lost fat and my energy levels are a lot better. One advantage of this diet is that it restricts you from snacking: there are just too many opportunities to eat badly at work: cakes abound, and I love crisps. Cutting out those unhealthy foods is undoubtedly part of the secret to the success of this nutrition plan.

low carb chips or crisps

We experimented with making healthier crisps of our own, using a popular recipe for vegetable chips made from cabbage. They’re absolutely delicious and they fill that crisp-shaped hole in my life.


  • Big handfuls of savoy cabbage (kale is also good) – washed, pat dried and chopped into equal sized chips.
  • Sea Salt and fresh cracked pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of lime juice


  1. Preheat your oven to 150c
  2. Melt the butter in a bowl
  3. Toss the cabbage with the melted butter
  4. Season with the salt, pepper and lime juice
  5. Mix well
  6. Place the coated cabbage onto a baking tray and spread out so that nothing is overlapping
  7. Bake for 35 minutes
