From all the low-carb alternatives to potato chips I've tried, mixed vegetable chips are amazing and probably the most similar. Just be very careful how much of them you eat, they are not carb-free!
I used carrots, beetroots and parsley roots but feel free to use just one of these, or try other options such as sweet potato, celeriac, zucchini or turnips.
Are Parsley Roots and Parsnips The Same Vegetable?
Don't confuse parsley root with parsnip. They may look similar but are definitely not the same!
Parsley root is pale, almost white and has a clean, fresh parsley-like aroma and flavor. It is usually longer and slender and sold with the leaves (parsley leaves are used as a spice). Most importantly, they are very low in carbs (less than 2 grams of net carbs per 100 grams), which makes them similar to carrots.
Parsnips are slightly yellow in color and more bulbous compared to parsley roots. They are sweeter and are rarely sold with any leaves. Most importantly, they are much higher in carbs (round 13 grams of net carbs per 100 grams), which makes them similar to sweet potatoes. Here is a great comparison of these two very similar types of root vegetables.
