Eating Clean // Kale Chips

May 13, 2015

Every once in a while I get an urge to try something new, and recently I've been working on eating a little cleaner. Even when eating clean, I still get cravings for snacks, especially salty ones. Instead of eating my weight in potato chips and pretzels, I decided to make kale chips.

At first I was intimidated by kale, that leafy green monster. When I realized that all you needed to do was chop it up and bake it, I was down for the adventure.

Kale chips have a very unique flavor, but they're a pretty good alternative for a salty snack. I experimented a little with my seasonings, and tried everything from garlic and salt to Old Bay.

To make kale chips, all you need is:
  • A bundle of fresh kale - I found this at my local grocery store for only .99 cents! (Kale chips cost about $7 a package at Whole Foods, so making them at home is so much cheaper!)
  • A tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Whatever seasonings you like!

Then, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Rinse your kale and shake off all the excess water. After that, you've just gotta pick the leaves off of the stems, and rip the leaves into chip-sized pieces.

Then, toss your kale with a little olive oil, and sprinkle your seasonings over it.

Once that's done, spread the kale out on a cookie sheet and pop it in the oven for 8 minutes or until the kale is crispy.

And then you're done! Allow to cool and enjoy!

What flavor kale chips would you make?

  2. I tried these ones and they came out awful, I don't know what I did wrong, maybe too much oil and too long in the oven. I really want to try them again because they seem like they could be yummy! I think I would put some black pepper on them, yum!
