Lisa asks: What is your favorite kind of chip and what do you like to dip it into?


The potassium in potato chips can be beneficial to those who need more of it in their diet. I find, however, that the preservatives in potato chips can make me ill if I overindulge. Tortilla chips are the healthier and safer option, but there is little to no potassium in tortilla chips.

Tortilla chips have to be healthier. Look at the extremely long list of ingredients in any bag of potato chips. Then look at the ingredients in tortilla chips. Case closed.
