Kale Chips


Kale, yes!  Okay, I'm going to be super honest with you--I'm not the biggest fan of cooked kale.  I like it raw in a salad (drenched with Whole30 approved Tessemae's Creamy Ranch dressing), but cooked--not so much.  Kale is super healthy for you!

-It's high in omega-3 & 6 fatty acids, which helps with glowing skin
-Low in calories, but high in fiber (which aids in digestion)
-1 cup of kale contains 3 grams of protein (which ladies, we usually don't get enough of!)

We have all seen posts on Pinterest about Kale Chips, and I've tried to make my own but have never succeeded (they usually just ended up burnt!)  I finally looked into a couple different recipes and came up with my own that I finally liked (after a couple of failed attempts.)  Here you go!


All Heart Kale Chips:

-Line a cookie sheet with a bunch of kale (sorry, I don't do specific measurements like ever)
-Drizzle generously with olive oil then massage with your hands to get it evenly coated
-Add red pepper flakes to taste and nutritional yeast if you want a cheesy flavor
-Cook at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes until crisp
(you just want the edges crispy...if you do it too much longer it will be burnt to a crisp and just crumble)
-Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste
(don't add this before--it settles to the bottom of the pan and when you scoop it out, it all comes out SUPER salty)
-Lay out a paper towel in a bowl to catch excess oil and enjoy!  You can store in an airtight container to enjoy later and add to other recipes (don't put it in the fridge because it will get soggy!)
