Better Than Chips – $0.57 per serving

Better Than Chips – $0.57 per serving

At least that’s what my boyfriend said when I had him try these. So you’re allowed to have potatoes on Whole30. After all, they are a vegetable. Originally, Whole30 took potatoes out of the allowed eating plan because they thought Americans just ate too many potatoes. Really what they meant was that Americans ate too many french fries and potato chips.

So they put potatoes back on the allowed list with the caveat that you couldn’t deep fry them or eat commercially fried potatoes.


Thank goodness too because potatoes are so CHEAP! Here’s what it cost me:

I baked them and all I did to grease it up was use liberal amounts of my coconut oil cooking spray. This was SO easy and took about 10 minutes of prep:


These did not last more than 5 minutes between me and my boyfriend:


Stuff to buy:

  • red potatoes
  • sweet potatoes
  • coconut oil cooking spray


  • Curry
  • Cinnamon
  • Garlic Powder

Stuff to cook with:

  • As many baking pans as you need to spread each chip out (I used one big and one small)

How to cook it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Slice up the potatoes into chip-like shapes.
  3. Throw them in a bowl, add spices (be liberal on the curry and garlic powder, light on the cinnamon), and mix with the potatoes.
  4. Spray the baking pans with cooking spray. Spread out the potato slices so they’re not on top of each other.
  5. Put in the oven for 12 minutes. Potatoes should be soft but not crispy. Increase temperature to 400 degrees. Put in for another 12 minutes.
  6. Let them cool for a bit so you can take them off the pan and eat them!
