So this weekend was glorious and nothing says summer like chips! However if your slimming down or if you just enjoy eating healthy food (or just enjoy eating) I’m the latter. I have an alternative for you. Skinny.
Now I’m not saying you can beat deep fried food (you can’t) but it’s a tasty healthy alternative. 
So tuck in and pray that we have more sunny days like we had this weekend!
