So its late at night, your home alone, and you’ve rented a movie to pass the time. What goes better with a movie than a bag of chips? Well…. not much.
Its almost like you can hear the bag of delicious, crunchy, salty, chips whispering, “Eat me! One won’t kill you!” But, seriously when was the last time you only had a handful of chips and left it at that? Hmmm… let me think…. well never.
Lately, I have been trying new healthy food substitutions for all the things I use to love, but are horribly bad for me. Some have been a great success and others have been an epic disaster. Lets just say… somethings are meant to be left unhealthy.
One tasty treat I did come across, which turned out to be a great success was kale chips. I know its probably something that most people have heard of but it definitely is a must try. It is a great substitution for those crispy, crunch, salty, high in fat and calorie chips.
What your sexy self will need:
1. A head of Kale
2. Olive Oil
3. Any seasoning ( I use garlic, ground black pepper, and a pinch of salt)
Wash the kale thoroughly, and pat dry with a paper towel. Cut out the stems, and slice the kale leaves into smaller squares.
Put the cut up kale into a bowl and add a teaspoon of olive oil. Lightly mix kale, and rub the pieces with your fingers to make sure each piece is covered with oil.
Then add your seasoning. You can spicy these babies up however you like, but remember to use herbs and spices (such as Miss Dash) that do not contain salt or sugar.
Lay the kale chips out in a single layer on a baking sheet that is lined with tin foil. Bake at 350 for 8-15 minutes – usually depends on what type of kale you use, but always keep checking because there is nothing more disappointing than burning your delicious treat.
TA DA! you have a delicious, crispy, tasty snack! Caution, they are so delicious you may or may not eat the whole bowl!
