Fresh produce is a great way to find inspiration, and this recipe was no exception. Simply using a vegetable peeler on a bunch of parsnips and carrots, tossing them with a bit of olive oil and sea salt and baking them up, and voila; a bowl of nutrient-dense chips ready for chowing down on. What a great way to to get extra veggies into your diet!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This recipe is a great way to satisfy that salt craving without the added fat and sodium found in most store-bought chips. Carrots and parsnips are great choices because they are sturdy and hold up well during the baking process, and you get the added benefit of the vitamins and minerals found in them!
