Living well with our health intact involves eating a wide array of foods to ensure we are getting a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals. protein, carbs and healthy fats. One of our favourite ways to eat kale these days is to make kale chips at home! Kale is naturally high in Vitamin A and C, while providing us with approximately 13% of our daily recommended intake of Iron.

Directions:

  •  Wash and dry kale leaves before cutting/tearing into 1” pieces (stem removed), 10 cups
  • Place raw kale into a large covered container or large zip bag with 2-3 TBSP of EVOO (or other healthy fat of your choosing)
  • Add fresh ground pepper and sea salt to taste
  • Seal the container or bag, toss to coat
  • Place kale evenly on cooking sheet lined with parchment paper
  • Bake 500 degrees for 20 min or Broil at 525 degrees for 4-5 minutes

I always burn the edges of my kale if I broil it (so if anyone has suggestions for that I’d love to hear ‘em please!), so I prefer to bake mine. It takes longer but it turns out the way I like them. The kale leaves should be very dry or it will take a long time to crisp! Variations to keep life interesting would include adding varying spices to the kale while tossing, rather than simply salt & pepper. Changing up the oil used will also add variety to the type of healthy fat you consume (always good to add variety!)
