Kale Chips

These are like chips…. Only healthy! You can buy them at the healthfood store already done but they will cost you a small fortune and will most likely have more salt than you need. Even my husband kale-hater-Trav thinks these are delicious. You can sprinkle with a bit of parmesan if you like as well.

Kale contains some very powerful antioxidants that protect our cells from free radicals. One cup of kale contains nearly 20% of the RDA of dietary fiber, which promotes regular digestion, prevents constipation, lowers blood sugar and curbs overeating. It is an awesome veggie to aid our bodies in the detoxification process and contains lads of vitamins A, K and C.

1 bunch kale- leaves removed and washed (you can keep the stalks to chuck in a Veggie Stock)
Himalayan pink crystal salt- why this salt? Read more HERE
2 tsp olive oil

Wash the kale leaves and dry well. Tear into pieces and toss with the olive oil. Spread on baking paper on a tray and sprinkle lightly with salt. Bake for about 10-15 mins on 160C. Do NOT leave the kitchen. These have a habit of going from bright green and not cooked to complete chunks of char in a matter of minutes. Allow to cool and then eat them up! I am not sure how long or how to store these…. They never last long enough for that to be a requirement at our place.
