Kale Chips


March 1, 2013 by Sam

Kale is wonderful, but not everyone is a fan of eating it. I personally think it’s because many people don’t know much about it, or how to cook it. I like to include kale in as many of my meals as possible. I’ll blend kale into any soup, add chopped kale to a smoothie is great nutrient without altering the taste, and my personal favorite way to eat kale: kale chips!

First, let me tell you why you should be eating kale. Kale is an excellent source of Vitamin K, Vitamin C, calcium & beta carotene. Kale also contains sulforaphane, a phytochemical shown to reduce the risk of cancer & protect the heart from vascular inflammation.

Next, let me tell you how you should be eating kale. Always eat kale with some source of good fat: grass fed butter, good olive oil, grease from nitrate free bacon, coconut milk, etc. Vitamin K & carotenes are both fat soluble so humans need some kind of fat with the kale for our bodies to absorb the nutrients.

Kale chips are easy to make and are a great snack. They have an excellent light and crunchy texture that everyone in our house enjoys. I must warn you: they can be addicting! But there are worse things to be addicted to than kale.
