Kale Chips

Yes, that's what they are called.....very unusual uh?

I love First for women...the magazine. It's by the candy, gum and other temptations at the checkout at WalMart. It is filled with recipes, coupons, beauty tips, etc.

Kristen Bell's slimming kitchen cure was just so interesting that I had to try it first.

"The actress calls homemade kale chips her "everything superfood", and for good reason! Kale is rich in fiber, which boosts satiety, and trace minerals that optimize metabolism. To make: Break up fresh kale leaves, drizzle with olive oil and add sea salt. Then bake in a preheated 400 deg. oven for 10 min., or just until browned. Kale is available st supermarkets for most of the year. Look for bunches with the darkest green color and the stiffest leaves.

The flavor is remarkable. Pure fresh kale in every bite. Crunchy with a hint of salt. I had to walk away from the chips to keep from eating the entire pan while standing in one place. If you like the flavor of greens, give this snack a try. I know it is not for everyone and I will be in trouble if there is a trace of the scent left in the house when you know who comes home.......ha. But if I don't contain myself they will all be gone before he gets home!

This looks like something I'd love! I will have to give it a try. (And since it doesn't sound like something my husband would like, I could eat them all myself, haha :)

I LOVE kale! I am sure this would be my new favorite way to eat it if I made it! The problem would be stopping myself! LOL! Hope you hid your scent in time! LOL!

A friend told me about these eons ago, however, I didn't try it either. I will now! Sounds good and definitely healthy.

Thanks so much for stopping by ~

Interesting but I think I would have the opposite problem at my house...fighting Brewmaster for the last one!

I've heard mixed reviews about kale chips on some foodie blogs. I guess if a person does not like them as a veggie they won't like them as a chip. I'd eat them and I'm sure they are good.
