Today is a good day!
Fall is in the air and I am excited for the magical new beginnings that this will bring.
For you today, this magical new beginning could be a baked kale chips recipe that I am about to share with you…
If you do not already know how to make your own kale chips and you love kale like I do then….
GAME CHANGER ALERT.
As I toss aside my dinner to write this post (kale chips, chicken, and a coke zero), something additionally incredible comes to my attention which I must share with you.
I have completely devoured an entire bag of Ulitmate Spicy Curry Lime Kale Chips from Solar Raw (not sponsored but I should be) and it was only 200 something calories!!
I feel really good.I’ve been working all day, I am full, and all it took was a bag of kale chips.
Oh, and a bit of chicken.
Let’s face it, as a single lady I do not have time to make dinner when I get home each evening.
I just don’t want to.
I could lie to you and say that I eat on point all the time just like some of my Instagram posts suggest, but I don’t.
And I want to make another point-
Sometimes the idea of a “traditional” full meal is not appealing to me.
Sometimes I just want to embrace to the fullest extent the true bachelorette that I am and go for something that requires minimal effort- but is still healthy.
And sometimes I just want chips – but not that greasy potato kind that has me feeling like garbage after.
I feel like this kale chip fully encompasses all of my desires.
I also feel like I am totally not alone with this thinking….
There are some great pre-made kale chips out there. They are just too yummy that I eat the whole bag. Not that it matters… but then the next day I am left wanting more….
For a variety of reasons, I feel like everyone should know how to make their own simple easy kale chips… especially all of you ladies out there who might just be needing a night of ….
Chips & Chicken.
so without further ado, here is my quick and easy
Khale Chips Recipe
You can make them ahead of time so that they can be your “go to” after a long day.
I head kale- washed, de-stemmed and torn into pieces. (Go ahead and use your best judgment for the sizing, have some fun).
1-2 tbsp oil (Olive, avocado, sunflower- whatever you’ve got)
Seasoning (curry powder, chili powder, turmeric, salt… what do you like?)
Optional: Soaked cashews crushed up
Preheat oven to 250F degrees… you want it LOW. This is the secret to bake the kale into the chip right in my own opinion.
Massage oil into the kale in a big bowl. Add the seasonings, nutritional yeast, and crushed cashews if desired (don’t forget some Himalayan salt).
Spread on a cookie sheet.
Put it in the oven and check frequently after 15-20 mins.
You can flip if you want, it will be crispy when ready.
Let them cool, before storing in an airtight container.
I don’t know how long they last. They never make it past a day around me.
