These crispy, crunchy chips are great way to get your family to eat a powerhouse veggie. A word of warning—they’re incredibly addictive…but in this case, that’s a good thing. A serving of these will set you back just 35 calories and they’re rich in fiber, calcium, and potassium, all key nutrients that help protect your ticker. Compare that to a serving of potato chips, which will cost you 150 calories and are loaded with sodium.(And really, who can stop at just one serving?!)

This recipe makes 4 Servings
Ingredients:
  • 1 large bunch kale
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt or coarse sea salt
Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat two large baking sheets with nonstick oil spray.

Trim the stem ends off the kale, and cut or tear the leaves into 2-inch pieces. Divide the kale pieces between the two baking sheets and spread them into a single, even layer. Liberally mist the kale with nonstick oil spray and lightly sprinkle them with salt. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the kale is crispy to the touch and the edges are beginning to brown.
