It’s the combination of salty and crunchy that gives potato chips their allure. Depending on the flavor, a 1-ounce snack bag has at least 150 calories. Munch your way through a large 8-ounce bag and you’re looking at 1,230 calories — not counting any dip.
Better Bet: Dip celery or carrot sticks in hummus. You’ll get a satisfying crunch with fewer calories and more nutrients.
