Kale Chips Anyone?

by Melissa Paris

Move over salty potato chips! Instead of indulging on unhealthy, greasy snacks, kale chips are a healthier (and much more delicious) alternative to satisfy your cravings. Kale is a great source of fiber, Vitamin A, C, and K, beta-carotene, calcium and iron, so crunch away!


  1 bunch of kale, washed and dried
  1 tablespoon of olive oil
  1 teaspoon of seasoning (curry/garlic/Italian)


  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  Remove the leaves off the thick stems into and tear into medium sized pieces
  Drizzle olive oil in large bowl
  Add choice of seasoning
  Bake for 15 minutes, or until they are crispy

Kale also contains a host of anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory flavonols, such as quercetin, to help defend your body from the stresses of modern life
