We all have those moments when those salty potato chips look oh-so-tempting and weakness starts to take over. I’ll admit that I’ve given in to those moments multiple times, until recently.
Who knew kale would be the answer?! Kale is filled with powerful antioxidants and is high in vitamin A, vitamin C and calcium making it a healthy and satisfying alternative.
These delicious kale chips will help satisfy your snack cravings, and have the added benefit of filling your body with the fibre and micronutrients it needs.

Simple and Delicious Kale Chips
1 kale bunch (we used curly kale, shown above. However, you can use lacinato, or redbor kale as well)
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
1/2 lemon, squeezed
Salt and pepper to taste
Additional: get creative and add different spices like cumin or red pepper flakes. For vegans- nutritional yeast is a good cheese substitute
Preheat your over to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
Thoroughly rinse and dry kale
Cut the stems off the kale
Chop into large, chip sized pieces
Put into a bowl and toss with extra virgin olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon, other spices of your choosing and salt and pepper
Place on a tray and bake for 15 minutes
Take out and flip the kale chips to bake the other side
(*Check on the kale often when baking so it doesn’t burn. Every oven is different and yours could be done sooner!)
Bake for another 10 minutes or until crisp
Take out and let cool, then enjoy!
