In terms of veggies, usually green means good and Kale is KING! Kale is one of the most nutrient rich vegetables and is chocked full of vitamins and antioxidants. Kale only has 33 calories per cup. There are many ways to prepare this leafy wonder but perhaps my favorite way is to bake it into crispy Kale chips.
To make Kale chips, buy (or grow) Kale stalks or the chopped kale in a bag. Wash the stalks thoroughly then remove the fibrous large center stem. Tear the Kale into small leafy pieces and place on a tinfoil lined baking sheet. If you did buy the chopped Kale, still go through it and remove any of the big stems. Spritz the Kale with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle with sea salt.
Bake the Kale on 350 degrees for 20 minutes (give or take a few minutes depending on your oven). The Kale should shrink dramatically in size. You’ll be left with crispy, salty, healthy chips. It doesn’t matter if you can’t stop after just one…eat the whole tray if you’d like!
