Kale Chips!

Kale is a highly nutritious vegetable that has antiflammatory properties and powerful antioxidants! Kale is a very good source of iron, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin K, and Vitamin A.


The perfect snack!! So easy, and quick! 



Grab a fresh bushel of Kale and rinse, ensuring to dry with paper towels or a salad spinner to remove excess water

Break into small or medium bite sized pieces and spread out over a cookie sheet


Drizzle 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and a dash of sea salt over the kale. I ended up using my hands to gently toss and have the olive oil/sea salt combo spread evenly.


Bake in oven at 400 for 15 minutes until crispy. Keep a watchful eye as you do not want to burn them. 


Remove from oven...and enjoy this nutritious snack, guilt free!!

My kids love Kale chips! I make it on the BBQ in the summer all the time. I pick it right out of the garden and it makes the most amazing "pre-super snack"... teehee... little do they know how many nutrients they are consuming :D
