Fake It

You Can Still Eat Chips! 

You put a chip in front of me and my fat little hand automatically grabs one and puts it in my mouth. It’s a phenomenon I’m yet to understand.

I love to make-and-fake versions of unhealthy food. (Health freaks, you can ignore this page!) These are just some of the ways I fake it for better health! 
 
I have a little addiction to all things chips. You put a chip in front of me and my fat little hand automatically grabs one and puts it into my mouth. It’s a phenomenon I’m yet to understand. As you can imagine with all the events and gatherings happening out there, and all those screaming supermarket shelves, this started to become a problem. So, as mentioned, now I’ll buy a potato and slice up my chips and cook them in the microwave or oven. No oil spray needed. 

I also cut pieces of mountain bread into smaller squares and toast them in the toaster. (Make sure you use a low setting and watch them as they cook!) Then I break them up for a crunchy fix. 

Otherwise, I’ll buy pita or corn chips, popcorn or chilli salted peanuts. 

For ‘fish and chips’ I make grilled fish and baked wedges. 

For ‘chicken and chips’ I steam chicken and make baked wedges. 

For ‘pizza’ I make healthy pita pizzas. 

Instead of lollies (candy), I’ll have liquorice or dried fruit. 

Chocolate? Sorry, I’m never giving up chocolate. But I do have organic 70% chocolate now. 

Instead of coke I drink mineral water. I like a fizz fix. 

Tomato sauce (ketchup)? I’ll go fresh diced tomatoes, please! 

I’ve switched to decaf coffee and herbal tea. 

And finally the new ‘Penina Burger’ is a falafel wrap with hummus! Delicious! 

So bake it to fake it, and you will really will make it! There’s truth in the statement.
