I’ve been a lover of potatoes since childhood. Yes, potatoes. The starchy ones, not the sweet ones. Especially fries and chips. As I continue to be better and smarter in my eating habits, I’ve learned you don’t always have to go without; just substitute!

For all of you that are afraid of anything green, kale is definitely is very friendly with regards to taste and doesn’t take a boat load of seasonings to have a delicious flavor. I find that making kale chips is a fantastic alternative that gives me the crisp and just enough saltiness to calm the crave of wanting a big bag of potato chips. What’s great about kale chips is that it’s an easy and healthy recipe to eat and even faster to make.

Here’s what I used:

  • Kale, cut & washed
  • Olive Oil
  • Sea salt



-Add prepared kale into a large bowl

-Lightly drizzle kale with olive oil

-Work oil around on kale to spread evenly

-Lightly add salt


-Add kale to baking sheet & bake for 4 minutes at 400 degrees {Be careful: Kale burns easily}

-Remove from oven once crispy to your liking and let cool



Note: Make sure you drizzle the oil ever so lightly. Too much drizzle turns your kale into a soggy mess! Also, try to cut the kale into semi-medium pieces. Smaller pieces cook faster and tend to shrivel, leaving you with less leaves to eat.
