This is our new favorite snack!
If you want something crispy and a little salty, ditch the potato or tortilla chips and add some serious goodness with kale chips!
Kale is considered to be a highly nutritious vegetable with powerful antioxidant properties; kale is considered to be anti-inflammatory.
Kale, as with broccoli and other brassicas, contains sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or minced), a chemical believed to have potent anti-cancer properties. Kale is also a source of indole-3-carbinol, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells. Kale is also a good source of carotenoids.
Potatoes and corn can’t hold a candle to that!
Chop up 2 large bunches of kale, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake in a 375 degree oven for approximately 8 minutes – until the edges of the leaves turn brown and they are thoroughly crunchy.
