We all have cravings from time to time. Whether it is for something sweet or salty, everyone gets them. And guess what? It’s okay to give into your craving, but there are smart ways to do so. Just make healthier choices. Whenever I get a craving, and I really want that cookie or something crunchy, I always think about healthy alternatives that still satisfy what I want without breaking the caloric break. Sometimes baked apple chips, which are both sweet and crunchy, do just the trick. Baked apple chips can be a great swap for regular potato chips.
There are many benefits of making small replacements to healthier choices. Less sugar, fewer refined carbs, and closer to their original form than any processed snack. You can enjoy without having to feel guilty or ruining your diet. Personal trainer and sports nutrition specialist Jarenn Stewart always carries them with him as an on-the-go snack. "They are a great snack since they are low glycemic and won't cause insulin spikes," says Stewart.
Apples alone have many health benefits. According to livescience.com apples are high in fiber, vitamin C, low in calories and sodium, and do not have fat or cholesterol.
"Apples contain insoluble fiber, which provides bulk in the intestinal tract. The bulk holds water that cleanses and moves food quickly through the digestive system." 
They function as antioxidants and have cardiovascular benefits. The reason lies behind the fiber that they contain and the polyphenols that are found in high amounts. 
Now that you are all caught up on the benefits of apples, you can see how they are the perfect substitution. Make them sweet or lightly salted, depending on your preference. There are so many different ways to make them. You can sprinkle cinnamon, nutmeg or both! My favorite way is by sprinkling cinnamon on top. PaleoLeap.com gives a great receipe I like to follow:
