Kale Chips

If you are looking for a fun, healthy way to eat kale, then look no further!  These baked crispy kale chips are a light and tasty snack (or side dish).

Everyone has their cravings.  Some crave chocolate or sweets.  Others crave salty and crunchy.  Mine is ice cream.  If we have it in the house, it actually talks to me.  I hear it calling from the freezer.  And, no matter how hard I try to fight it, I find myself being led into the kitchen for “just a scoop”.  I even try to trick myself by putting the ice cream in a small drinking glass rather than a bowl. 

My rationale?  If I use a small glass it won’t hold as much as a bowl but it will still look full, thus tricking my tired brain.  Brilliant, huh?!?  I thought so! To avoid the calories all together, I just don’t buy ice cream.  That way it can’t call to me late at night when I have zero will power.

Sometimes, though, I crave salty and crunchy.  Usually, these cravings hit me in the late afternoon – around 3:00 pm.  That time between getting my son off the school bus and dinner.  I find myself scavenging the kitchen looking for anything that will satisfy me.  I just need a little something to get me through homework time and dinner prep.  Geez…I sound like an addict, don’t I?!?

This is where the crispy kale chips come in.  This easy, crunchy, slightly salty snack is perfect for these times.  I can nibble on as many as I want with zero guilt.  So much better than potato chips, crackers or pretzels.  Plus, when my son eats them, I know he’s getting a snack that tastes good and is good for him.
