Have you tried Kale Chips Yet?
I’m a fan of snacks.
I know some people who don’t really need to snack and others who feel like a snack keeps them going during the day. I have one snack during the day between lunch and dinner and then something small after dinner.
Sometimes I think it can be a habit but I also feel better when I have something small to tide me over until dinner since I feel it keeps my blood sugar more stable.
Also, snacks just taste good!
You’ve probably seen a lot of Kale Chip recipes all over the web but I wanted to share this one with you just in case a) you may not have seen this recipe before and b) it may inspire you to make these, like now!
I really, really dig Kale Chips.
They are crunchy which is my fave and also salty another fave. I also like eating them with or in a salad.
Since giving up pretzels, potato chips, crackers and other crunchy, salty and otherwise unhealthy snacks I was glad to have tried Kale Chips.
If you’re just now transitioning to a more whole foods diet and are ready give the regular chips the ole heave-ho may I caution you to wait a bit to try Kale Chips.
They are sometimes an acquired taste but if you season them correctly they can be a fantastic replacement for the snacks that are loaded with harmful fats, refined salt and high in carbs.
Another thing to be aware of is that our taste buds usually adjust to the change in diet after about about 3 weeks and then they’ll be ready for some yumminess that is Kale Chips.

- Bake at 250° for 8-10 minutes until kale is dark green and crispy (check often so they don’t turn brown as they will taste bitter)

- You'll want to eat these the same day you make them. I've tried saving them for the next day and they lost their crunch.
