Veggie Chips

Whether they're made from whole root vegetables or have just a dusting of dried spinach, veggie chips are no substitute for actual vegetables. Plus, they're often fried and salted, meaning they could be loaded with calories and sodium, Geagan says.

Smart Swap
Dig into air-popped popcorn, which has about 30 calories per cup and a higher concentration of antioxidants than some fruit. Still craving veggie chips? Choose a brand with at least two grams of fiber per serving.
As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.
