Kale Chips!

The Bestest, Cheapest, Fastest, Crunchiest Snack.  KALE CHIPS – There are many great reasons why I love Paleo Pitch-Ins at the gym.  First, I get to see everyone all cleaned up with nice looking hair and the dirt is scrubbed off their hands. Secondly, it’s a great opportunity to try foods you wouldn’t have even though of before!  During our last pitch in, Michele Y. brought Kale Chips.  They were a DIVINE snack, crunchy and mildly salty like a potato chip.  Michele shared the recipe on the Hoosier CrossFit Facebook Wall, and now I’m sharing it on the Blog for Archiving!

1 bunch kale (approx. 8 oz.)
1 TBSP olive oil
1 pinch salt/salt to taste

Optional: pinch of cayenne, garlic salt, or whatever spice you’d like…

Preheat oven to 300*.

Rinse & dry kale, remove stems & center ribs, and cut into large pieces. Then toss in a large bowl w/olive oil & salt, etc. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet and pop ’em in for 20 minutes. Voila!

What’s a KALE CHIP good for?

You can put it in a small baggy and ration it throughout the week if you are a student.

You can carry some in your purse and sneak it into the movie theater.

You can enjoy it as a midnight snack.

You can take it on road trips.

You can put it in your husband’s lunch box with his other primal Goodies.

I made them for the first time today and I want you to try it out ASAP!
