kale chips

Baked kale chips. I’ve seen them before on this blog and this blog and wanted to make them ever since.

While I was on the Detox diet (now I’m on an elimination diet to try and figure out which food/s make my body crazy (more about that later) ) it was the perfect timing to make it.

They are so good, even my kids!!! eat them. And I don’t have to persuade them. I think that says it all. Kids eating leafy greens… I rest my case.

And you can eat as many as you want without the guilt feelings and without counting how many you had. (13 potato chips are 150 calories, but who eats only 13 potato chips, right? Not to mention the monstrous amounts of salt added.)

Baked kale chips

1 bunch kale, rinsed and spun dry in a salad spinner (or pat with clean towel to absorb water)

pinch of salt, black pepper

1/2 to 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

pinch chili flakes/paprika/Cheyenne power, optional

Remove the kale leaves from their tough inner stems. Tear with your hands to big bite-size pieces.

Toss with salt, pepper, chili flakes, and oil. (The leaves should only be lightly coated with oil.)

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until crisp.
