Healthy Root Vegetable Chips

These easy root vegetable chips are crispy and crunchy, but much more nutritious than store bought chips. You can season them with anything you like, from a simple salt and pepper blend to curry or dried herbs. Use a mandolin slicer to get thin, even slices. You can fry them in any high heat oil, but lard will give them the most flavor.
