Kale chips

Soul Food

I’m blessed to have a number of food allergies that I’m very grateful for as they keep me on track and encourage me to live a healthy life.  Great reframe right? I’ve always enjoyed homemade goodies and prefer to live a preservative free life, so with the latest Kale craze I thought I’d try it out. Oh my goodness what I discovered wasn’t life changing but it sure was nourishing! You see I love savoury snacks and can easily inhale a bag of corn chips in one sitting if I’m not careful. As it happens, once I got started with thinking about making these kale chips, I was on a roll. I made sweet potato chips, which didn’t work out as crunchy as I would have liked, but I devoured them anyway!

And I made apple, cinnamon and turmeric tea which was delish. There’s loads of info and recipes out there for this tea so do your own research if you want ok?  I’m wanting to shed a bit of holiday weight and get more greens in to my diet and am motivating myself to eat something different every day. My intention is to always aim for food that my body will thank me for. Anyways, here’s the recipe for Kale Chips. I’ll put up another blog about the apple and cinnamon tea and pass on sharing the recipe for sweet potoato chips!

Kale Chips

All you need is a bunch of kale, paper towel and a hot oven.

Instructions:

Before you wash and dry your kale, turn the oven on to about 210 degrees

Strip the leafy parts of fresh kale from the stem, wash, pat dry and lay out on a baking tray. Pop in hot oven for about 12-15 minutes. What you’re hoping for is that the kale wil be really dried out but not burnt.

Shake the tray as the chips should move easily on when done. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before devouring.

Check out the youtube clip I made about how to make these yummo kale chips and refreshing apple, cinnamon and turmeric tea 🙂

And the proof is in the tasting right?

    Always good to know of healthy alternatives. I too have food intolerances, and I love the positive slant on this!
