You are as scrumptious as a good bunch of kale.

I don’t know why, but the diet I was on (should really still be on it but… nahhhh) really made me crave potato chips (which I’m not supposed to have at all – no potato, plus it’s fried in all sorts of badness) so I had to find something that could work well in it’s place. Nuts are so boring to me and they just didn’t satisfy my need for a crunchy snack like a chip can. So I turned to good ol’ kale chips!


The first time I made these they were wayyyyy too salty. The recipe I used gave no indication of the amounts of things to use so I was just guessing (something I am not good at doing apparently). I could tell I liked kale chips through the saltiness, so I had to give it another shot when I got back on the diet. Here’s my recipe (with measurements!) in case you want to give them a go – they’re super easy!


Kale Chips


3 stalks of kale
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon sea salt


Preheat over to 150 degrees celcius.
Cut the large ribs out of the middle of each kale stalk.
Cut or break the leaves into approximately 2 inch sections.
Pop the kale into a bowl and drizzle with the olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt and give it a good toss.
Lay it all out onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Put it in the oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until crisp and darkened.
Take them out of the oven and let cool for a bit. Enjoy!


P.S. I didn’t just want to call this post ‘kale chips’, so I started Googling kale puns (good lord, what is wrong with me?) and I found this post; 25 pick up lines for kale lovers. Apparently there are other people out there as cool as I am. ;)
