Kale chips

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.[1]

Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and reasonably rich in calcium.

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.[3][4] Kale is also a good source of carotenoids.[5]

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.
