Kale Chips...are DA BOMB....204 Days to go

Alright, I know it isn't clothing related...but not all my posts are, and many of my readers are interested in improving their I figured you may be interested in Kale Chips! They are SUPER easy to make, super delicious, and super healthy.  They are so good that I've replaced regular potato chips with them (and I LOVE chips, they are my biggest vice! Or, they were)

Here's how ya do it:
(Preheat oven to 350 degrees)
1) Tear up some Kale, put it on a cookie sheet.

2) Drizzle the kale with olive oil (I measure it out first so I don't glop too much on. I use 1 tbsp for a cookie sheet full) 

3) Toss the Kale in the olive oil on the sheet, to make sure it is well covered. 

4) Put some spices on it. I use salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a teeny bit of sugar.

5) Bake for 11-15 minutes (depends on your oven, check EARLY and only cook it longer if it really needs it. Better to err on the side of undercooked on this one, as it burns easily)

6) Cool, and eat. Yum  yum yum!

Any other good healthy snacks you are a fan of? I've also been really digging Kettle Corn lately...mmm, I should make some of that...soon....


  1. Wow, kale chips? I am Portugese and never heard of these; they sound delicious! I'm going to try these this week. Thx!

  2. Yeah, they sound disgusting but have a really lovely roasted, nutty, rich flavor. Lemme know how they turn out! Enjoyed peeking at your blog!:)

  3. So, tried these... actually they sounded good so I made them for my super bowl party and they went very fast! They are delicious!!!

  4. We've done this with beets and lots of times with sweet potatoes. Both are super yummy! Will have to try it with kale... I never would have thought of it!

  5. Wow, that is great news Lent! I am glad you liked them. And n8swife, I haven't tried it with beets and sweet potatoes, what a great idea! Thank you for sharing!
