Kale Chips



If you are searching for a healthy, salty, crunchy & savory snack, these kale "chips" are just perfect! Only 60 calories!!
They also contain 3grams of protein and natural immune boosting power.

In 1 cup of kale you get:
-calcium
-vitamins A, C & K (phytonutrients essential for immune support!)
-flavonoids & carotenoids (antioxidants associated with fighting cancer causing cells)
-Fiber (naturally helps to lower cholesterol levels, helping to prevent heart disease)

Instead of reaching for those potato chips, make this simple salty, savory snack instead!

Ingredients


Bunch of Kale (as much as you want!)
Olive Oil (we used Bragg's) *enough to lightly coat the kale
Soy Amino (we used Bragg's)
Seasoned salt to taste (we used the Trader Joe's sea salt/roasted garlic/onion/parsley) 
-optional: Nutritional Yeast (enough to light coat to give a mild cheddar flavor)

*tip: when buying kale look for dark bunches of kale & avoid brown or yellow leaves! 



Directions


  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a non insulated cookie sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. (no need to grease)
  2. Pull kale leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner or lay on towel and pat dry with another towel. Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt.                          *tip: use a large bowl to toss!
  3. Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 15 minutes.

What is your favorite "healthy" snack?
