Choosing a Dehydrator

When trying to lose weight and keep it off let’s just face it! It really is all about the food, that is why I really wanted to figure out if the sweet potato chips I ate yesterday were fried or not. After hours of searching and more searching (well it didn’t take me that long but I did get side tracked). I finally found out the sweet potato chips were fried… I should have known since the calorie count was pretty high but I was blindsided by my false hope. I am so mad at those fried sweet potato chips from yesterday; sneaky advertisers they really should put fried chips on the bag so all of the curious consumers can know. I guess they clearly don’t care about letting us know those important details.
I decided that after seeing this lovely post and the fried sweet potato chips from yesterday that I finished off today, that it is time to purchase a dehydrator. I am a lover of quick snacks but if I could cut my cost in half, and not be tricked in to buying healthy snacks that say one thing but mean the other. Why not try making them myself and see what I can come up with (sweet potato chips anyone?). I am not saying I will be the next Betty Crocker (well not yet) of the healthy foods we eat, but it will be nice to keep calories low since I am trying to loose fat not gain it.

I am on a budget, but of course when you have a budget you tend to want everything that is never in your price range. I really would love an Excalibur I see all the raw and vegan foodies with one, and they come up with some amazing dishes that just make me drool but I don’t have Excalibur money. I still want a dehydrator so I am going to get one that will give me the same results but a fraction of the price. I really liked this dehydrator and the this one, but I am one of those people who will spend thirty minutes to an hour on one item before I actually buy it. I am thinking about the first one but there are so many I can’t decide. I hope I do not have this problem when it comes time to upgrade cameras…

Question of the day: Do you have a dehydrator if so which is your favorite brand?
