Need some ideas on what to eat when you're on Atkins and craving salty/crunchy stuff - chips, crackers, etc. As much as I love sweets, it's the salties that are my major downfall...share your ideas?? Question

Turkey jerky?

Does anybody really think that they didn't get what they had because they didn't have the talent or the strength or the endurance or the commitment?

Ohhh, me too! I'm a salty crunchy addict.
I'm going to try baked zucchini chips. I've never tried them before but here is the recipe The picture shows them with the skin on.:
• 1 zucchini
• canola cooking spray
• seasoned salt, or other seasoning(s) of your choice

Preheat oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick foil, and spray with canola oil. Set aside.

Slice zucchini into thin medallions, about the thickness of a quarter. (You can either use a knife & a very steady hand, or a mandolin slicer.)

Lay out slices on prepared baking sheet, and spray tops lightly with additional cooking spray. Sprinkle with seasonings of your choice. (A note on seasoning, however - use LESS than what seems appropriate. These shrink considerably in the oven, and if you use too much it gets very concentrated. It's better to end up under seasoning and add more later.)

Place in preheated oven and bake 45 minutes. Rotate baking sheet, and bake an additional 30-50 minutes, until chips are browned and crisped to your liking. These are best eaten within a couple hours of removing from the oven, as they start to get chewy if left out. One zucchini makes one serving (1/4 C. - 1/3 C. of chips depending on the size of your squash).

I tried those zucchini chips, but overcooked 'em. The ones that weren't completely burned were pretty good!
Need to try it again...

Had to go to the kitchen and get one of my homemade pickles after reading your post. Smile Crunchy, salty, but not too much, and so yummy.
