So my husband has really become crazy about Kale. I bought a bundle of it a week or so ago. To be honest, I can’t even remember why I got it, but we ended up making a salad out of it. As if he took 14 shots of espresso and a multivitamin, he was ready to build a barn with his energy! Since, we’ve both become kind of crazy about Kale. Its tasty, versatile and really really good for you. Its like taking crunchy lettuce and sprinkling a vitamin on top… don’t do that though, that sounds gross.
And to top things off, I’ve been hearing lots of talk about Kale Chips. Coincidence??? I think not. It is time for two wonderful things to collide on the MyBetterBalance Blog.
Thankfully, there’s not much to Kale chips. They are pretty basic and can be altered if you want to get fancy. But I’ll keep it simple.
So you’ll need:
- large bowl of washed Kale. If its not pre-chopped, rip the leaves off the stalk into bite-sized pieces.
- Olive oil
In a large bowl, hand toss the kale with 1 Tbsp of olive oil and 1 tsp of salt. Lay out on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Toss the kale about 10 minutes in.
YUM!!!! Enjoy crunchy, chips that aren’t going to do a number on your waist line.
