Healthy Benefits of Kale Chips

Kale is a super-nutritious green that has many health benefits including lowering cholesterol and protecting against cancer.

Actually, kale is often referred to as one of the healthiest vegetables on the planet.

Like cabbage and broccoli it is a cruciferous vegetable.

The nutrition superstar has only 35 calories per cup and is high in fiber but the primary reason it is so highly acclaimed is the high concentration of antioxidants and vitamins A, C and K as well as phyto-nutrients.   It is also rich in lutein known for promoting eye health.

  2. Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces.

3 Kale Chip Notes:

You can use any kind of oil you want but grape seed oil has great health benefits.

They must be eaten the same day they are baked as they get soggy in storage.

Be careful with the salt as when kale is raw it is natural to add too much, then it concentrates when the kale is cooked.

Healthy Snack Chip

Kale chips are a great snack that is really healthy!

When you make and eat kale chips you eat more than a one cup portion because when you start crunching the flavor is powerful!  One time I sat down with 3 friends and ate a whole head of kale that had been turned into chips….

I bet you can’t eat one!!

Think of all the nutrients you are getting when eating kale chips for a snack!
