Recipe: Tomato Chips

Eating healthy and eliminating processed carbohydrates isn’t always easy and a lot of the time you have to be creative in your meal choices. Almost all crunchy snack­­s are highly processed and made with unhealthy carbohydrates. If you have a dehydrator and like tomatoes then tomato chips are a great option!

Not only do they taste great, but tomatoes contain a powerful carotenoid named lycopene. Lycopene has been shown to help reduce the risk of prostate, lung, stomach and multiple other cancers. It has also been shown to help reduce oxidation and damage to the heart leading to a reduced risk of heart disease.

Tomato Chips
  • Wash and dry Roma tomatoes (I wash produce with a mix of white vinegar and water)
  • Slice into ¼ inch slices
  • Top with seasoning of your choice (garlic powder, sea salt, pepper, basil, oregano)
  • Place slices in dehydrator
  • Leave in dehydrator for 12­ - 24 hours until crunchy.
