Nutrition / March 10, 2014

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.

Try them for your next movie night!

Ingredients:

  • 1 kale bunch
  • 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
