Pita chips are a healthful alternative to potato chips when you're craving a crunchy snack. Consume pita chips in moderation to keep calories under control.
A serving of 14 pita chips contains 130 calories, according to FatSecret. This serving size contains 5 g of fat, 3.5 g of which are monounsaturated. It contains 260 mg of sodium, 19 g of carbohydrates and 3 g of protein.
Pita chips are a good source of monounsaturated fat when brushed with olive oil. When monounsaturated fats replace saturated fats in your diet, they can help reduce blood cholesterol levels and reduce your risk of heart disease or stroke, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Make your own light pita chips. A recipe at Cooks.com calls for whole wheat pita bread rounds. Brush with heart-healthy olive oil and season with herbs. Bake instead of frying to limit fat. Pair with hummus, tabouleh, salsa, guacamole or artichoke dip.
