Dr Travis Stork shared that downing a regular bag of chips isn’t great for your waistline, but he had some great “chip flips” you can start using tonight. Dr Rachael Ross started with Beet Chips, explaining that you can soak thinly sliced beets in vinegar before baking them in an oven for 15 minutes to create “rose petal chips.” Dr Stork said he’s not a big fan of beets but he thoroughly enjoys rose petal chips. You can also sprinkle them with a little salt for added flavor.


The Drs: Brussels Sprout Chips

They also suggested you create healthier chips using Brussels Sprouts. Peel the leaves off and mix them with some olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic before roasting them until they’re crisp. It’s basically just like kale chips, except you’re using Brussels sprouts instead.
