I am currently on day 3 of a 6 day juice fast, and boy oh boy am I craving CHIPS! Actually I'm craving everything, and to be honest I would eat a piece of bark if it had BBQ sauce on it.  I made these absolutely simple and delicious Purple Sweet Potato chips a week ago and they were a major hit.  They are super simple to make and a great way to feed any chip craving! There are various benefits of Purple Sweet Potatoes.  They help regulate blood pressure, fight  cancer, maintain weight loss, boost immunity, aid in digestion, and it's one of the best sources of Vitamin A and a great food for diabetics.  Talk about a superfood! I like to dip the sweet potato chips in hummus, garlic dip or a delicious spicy vegan kale pesto dip, for which the recipe is included below.

Enjoy!
