I thought I would title this post chips, well because I used to really love chips (especially Ripple Sour Cream & Onion), and sometimes the thought of eating a whole bag creeps up on me and wishes I could. But as part of my clean eating, which I enjoy much more than a bag of chips, I needed something to fill the void of chips, so I did a little research online and I found Kale chips. They can be made at home and even better they are one of the most nutrient dense foods you can eat. So now you are probably wishing I would stop
talkingtyping, and share the recipe with you already! So here is it..
1 bundle of Kale
1 tsp Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
Wash the kale and rip the leaves away from the stem.
Place leaves into bowl and toss in olive oil and sea salt.
Place on baking sheet and into the oven for 10 minutes or until the leaves are crunchy and brown on the ends.
Since I am on the topic of crunchy foods to replace chips, I thought I would mention popcorn. Popcorn is actually a whole grain, so it can be healthy for you if it is not drenched in butter and salt. All I do is place a small amount of olive oil into a pot on the stove top with 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels on medium heat and place lid on pot. I shake the pot about 3 minutes into cooking (my thinking is that it will prevent the kernels from sticking to the bottom of the pot but I have no real reason haha), anyways…after all the kernels have popped, take off the stove top and place into bowl. You can add a small amount olive oil and/or sea salt, cinnamon, pepper, chili pepper or whatever salt-free spices you would like.
I hope you all are enjoying my posts and if you have any ideas for me, please feel free to let me know!!! This is still all so new to me and am trying my best to let you on in my journey. Hopefully I can inspire you to join me on my journey of getting healthy, eating clean and exercising.
