If you're still telling your kids to not eat potato chips, it's probably because you didn't know you could make them in your microwave without a smidgen of grease. For real. I could tell you more, but I suspect you're already in the kitchen trying this out.
- One Russet potato sliced paper thin
- Salt (optional)
- Parchment paper
Cut a sheet of parchment paper to fit a plate. Lay discs of potato on top in a flat layer, none touching. Sprinkle layer with salt, if desired. Cover with another sheet of parchment paper. Microwave for 5-6 minutes. Discs will have become lightly browned potato chips.
Kids can help: Cut paper to shape, lay out slices of potato

This kid-favorite gets a healthy makeover to fuel your child's busy body all day long. Make these the night before to save time in the morning. Top English muffin halves with jarred marinara sauce (if your child won't object, add chopped steamed broccoli or spinach to the sauce.) Sprinkle pre-shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Let cool, then wrap up.
