Super Good for You Chips

We’ve all been there, craving a late night salty snack.  Well, I like to skip the potato chips and indulge in these super-good-for-you crispy kale chips.  I love them, my three and a half year old son loves them, and even my dog loves them.

I absolutely love kale in general.  A nutrient powerhouse, one cup of kale has zero fat and only 36 calories and is high in vitamins and antioxidants.  Any time you see a dark green such as kale, it is a sign that it is highly concentrated with nutrients.
Here are just some of its wholesome features:

  • Super rich in vitamin K (which translates into a super antioxidant!)
  • High in fiber (assists in gut health)
  • High in iron (per calorie, more iron than beef)
  • High in vitamin A (great skin, yes please)
  • High in vitamin C (great for your immune system)
  • High in calcium (per calorie, more calcium than milk!)

    I tried this recipe for the third time since I read it on this blog, and I LOVE it– It is so fast and easy. Tonight I made it to accompany my main course of grilled chicken breast (sorry vegan and vegetarian friends), with roasted portobello mushrooms and roasted red peppers—AWESOME–thank you for the recipe!!!
