You know that Lay’s Potato Chip challenge: “Betcha can’t eat just one“?
I vividly remember coming home from school as a child and wolfing down half a bag of Sour Cream and Onion Potato Chips in one sitting. I’m not proud. Nowadays, I don’t even buy the stuff because I know what a danger it is for me. But Lay’s wasn’t kidding; there is definitely something about a chip that physically prevents you from just putting the bag down and walking away.
Is it an addiction? Perhaps. Luckily, most addictions can be cured with the proper procedures. When smokers decide to quit, one common way to combat cravings is with a faux cigarette, a placebo if you will. The trick lies in tricking yourself. You’ve got to make your brain think it’s getting what it wants.
The same idea can be applied to those dastardly potato chips. You’re stronger than they are. All you need is a replacement, something to curb those salty, crunchy cravings when they come at you full-force. This, my little cookies, is where my Spicy Italian Kale Chips come in.
