There are often times between meals when I look for something to snack on, but its difficult to find something that is relatively healthy and low in calories. I’ve walked up and down the aisles in the supermarket to find low calorie chips or health bars, but a lot of the time there are ingredients in these items that add unwanted calories. While looking online for some inspiration, I stumbled upon this recipe from the FoodNetwork… Kale Chips. I recently made them for myself and really enjoyed them: it really is a good healthy alternative to chips, it has all the crunch with far less of the calories. Definitely worth a try:
1 head kale, washed and thoroughly dried
2 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt, for sprinkling
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Lay on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and salt. Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes. Serve as finger food.
