Hello all.

ok so I'm new here. I've never done a "diet" before. my dr has recently told me if i dont change my diet I'm gonna end up being diabetic. my question for you guys is ...
what would be a lower carb option for tortilla chips?

I have been ok ish with the change to my diet but the chips and salsa thing is killing me. lol

I used to take cucumber slices or zucchini slices to Mexican restaurants with me in a ziploc bag. I'm not a low carb person, but those worked for me. Good luck!

If it's at home, I would splurge on a serving of the real thing once in a while. Measure them out, savor them, and enjoy it! Total deprivation doesn't work and 1 serving of tortilla chips every week or so is not going to tank your diet- it's far better to indulge in moderation than to fall off the wagon and eat two baskets full the next time you're at a Mexican restaurant. Try eating a large salad dressed with lots of salsa and a few chips to munch in between bites of salad.

I second what gnat said, but if you decide to look for an alternative try this out:

Start with some of these

Cut into triangles

Bake at 350F for bout 20-25 minutes flipping once
get something like this

Now that you know how bad processed food makes you feel you can indulge in natural food which you love without any ill effects. Real foods don't have ingredients they are ingredients :)
