Kale Chips

As you clean up your diet, it gets harder and harder to tolerate junk food. It just makes you feel like crap. One particular junky junk food is chips.

As you can see from the photo, I'm not entirely against chips. However, also notice from the photo that the potato chips are generously topped with a much healthier option: crispy, delicious, green kale chips.

Kale is apparently a super food. As far as nutrition goes, we should all eat more green leaf vegetables. Kale is great as is - in a coleslaw, wilted with onions, in a soup, etc - but they completely transform when tossed in a bit of oil and seasonings and then placed into a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes. They go all crispy and delicious. Prepared at home, which, as you can see, is super easy to do, beats the bagged kale chips by a long shot.
