Greens for people who don’t like greens

Kale Chips are a super light healthy snack that is surprisingly tasty!  If you don’t normally get a lot of leafy greens in your diet, try these out.  They are really quick and easy, plus kale is high in vitamins K, A and C and has been proven to reduce the risks of some types of cancer.

Ingredients

  • 1 large bunch of  kale
  • 1 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Remove leafy parts of the kale from the stems and throw out (or compost :)) the stems.
  3. Chop the kale into squares or strips about 1-2 ” in size
  4. Whisk the olive oil and apple cider vinegar and pour over  the kale
  5. Hand toss the kale to make sure that the leaves are all lightly coated in the oil and vinegar (a little goes a long way…don’t over coat)
  6. Lay the bunch of kale out on a cookie sheet.  It will start out as a big bunch.
  7. Salt and pepper to taste
  8. Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes tossing about every 5 mins or so until the kale is dried and crispy
  9. Enjoy! 🙂

  1. I find that the best way to get people to eat greens is to add bacon, preferably cooked.

    However, pork bellies are on the rise on the commodity market. Not surprised bacon is so popular. It’s my favorite food group.
