Replacement for chips?

I am trying to not eat carbs in the form of bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, etc. 

I am going to make Ceviche which is usually paired with some kind of chip.

Does anyone have a crunchy substitute I could use to eat the Ceviche with ? I thought about butter lettuce or something but I'd rather have a firm crunch to eat it with if anyone has ideas!

Ceviche Pairing on Feb 19, 2013 @ 05:53 pm

I think you're on the right track with the lettuce. It definitely needs something crunchy. I think you'd definitely need a crispier lettuce too. Have you considered a low carb bread/cracker option? I was addicted to those wasa crackers or just a thinner flatbread even?

I googled ceviche pairings and ceviche and popcorn came up too: http://www.thekitchn.com/post-52-89010

That might be interesting?

Thanks! on Feb 19, 2013 @ 09:19 pm

I ended up serving it on butter lettuce ( because it's easy to cup and wrap) but also had sliced cucumber ! Eventually I will get back to crackers, for now I'm trying to just keep it out to drop weight I need to lose . I also thought about plantains , I will try some of what you mentioned when I get where I want to be and add them back.

I am a carb junkie ! lol I miss them but I love the results on my health.

mini white cucumbers on Feb 19, 2013 @ 10:20 pm

this summer, buy seeds of the mini cucumber. plant your own cucumber. these kind can be put in a pot, matures at 2-3 inches. Very crunchy, better than the one you buy in stores and also bush beans. This beans can also be raise in pots.


So last summer, I manage to get my crunchies from 2-3 pots in the backyard.

I can't stop my carbs, i have 2 cups of rice each day. I am Asian, so I am doomed already.

This is a great recipe, they're crispy and guilt-free.

Kale and Organic Blue Corn chips are a really great alternative. I love potato chips, they're like a weakness for me too.

Here is a whole list of fruits and vegetables that you can turn into chips (and how long to bake them) Kale Chips are surprisingly delicious.

Cucumber. on Mar 01, 2013 @ 10:53 am


I love cucumber. I slice it up, and then top it with some of my favourites. I find that it has a nice crunch, and it's also extremely refreshing (not to mention super healthy, too).
