Crispy Baked Kale Chips

Crispy Baked Kale Chips

I’m going to be honest here – there are days when I was craving something crunchy and salty and devoured an entire bag of potato chips… and then lived to regret it… 😉  But these kale chips make for a deliciously crispy, guilt-free alternative… so go ahead and eat the whole bunch!  Kale is considered one of the world’s healthiest foods – high in fiber, and loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, it makes for an excellent post-yoga snack (or middle of the night snack, if that’s your bag, baby)!  P.S. My kids devoured these, so if you’re looking for a way to sneak more greens into their diet, then look no further… Nom! ♥
