Kale Chips

Kale Chips are my new favorite snack. They are easy to make, gluten free and healthy. I like to use the packaged Kale from Trader Joes, it is already washed and cut up! Otherwise, I pick up about 4 bunches at the farmer’s market. This snack doesn’t last more than a day in my house.

Ingredients:

  • Kale (4 bunches)
  • 1 garlic clove chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon of  sea salt
  • Olive Oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spread out kale onto cookie sheet.
  3. Drizzle with Olive Oil.
  4. Sprinkle chopped garlic across kale.
  5. Season with sea salt.
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes. Keep a close eye on the kale as it can burn easily. It’s ready when the edges start to brown.

Benefits of Kale*:

  1. Low in calorie, high in fiber and has zero fat
  2. High in iron
  3. High in Vitamin K
  4. Filled with powerful antioxidants
  5. Great anti-inflammatory
  6. Great for cardiovascular support
  7. High in Vitamin A
  8. High in Vitamin C
  9. High in Calcium
  10. Great detox food
