Chips are usually made of potatoes or corn. Let's invite a lower-carb option that has higher nutritional value and less effect on blood sugar. Say hello to Zucchini Chips!

- Slice zucchini into thin circles.
- Dab-dry the zucchini with a paper towel.
- Toss the zucchini slices with olive oil and some salt in a bowl until they are fully oiled.
- Arrange the zucchini slices on a baking sheet so they can bake evenly. *NOTE: Use parchment paper instead of placing directly on sheet so your zucchini slices will not stick.
