Kale the Guilt

I lack self-control when it comes to snacking. Put me in front of the TV with a bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos and I can guarantee the entire bag (regardless of size) will be devoured within one episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. To mitigate my bad snacking habit, I've been trying to replace empty calories snacks with healthy and sensible alternatives. One of my favorites is kale chips. 


Kale is a low calorie leafy vegetable that's highly nutritious and contain potent antioxidant properties. By simply roasting them and sprinkling a tad of sea salt and olive oil, I'm able to transform a healthy vegetable into a delicious snack, "kale-ing" the guilt of snacking!


Simple Kale Chips Recipe


Ingredients:
1 bunch of kale
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt (and any other seasoning) to sprinkle

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Discard kale stems and wash thoroughly
3. Dry kale in a salad spinner or with paper towels
4. Tear kale into 1.5 inch pieces
5. In a large bowl mix dry kale with olive oil and sprinkle salt (just a pink or two- it's easy to over salt them) and mix
6. Spread kale out on two baking sheets
7. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned
