kale chips to balance my over-indulgence of chocolate

The sweets have taken over our house lately.

With Valentine's Day parties and the recent Chocolate Lover's Festival I'm beginning to not feel so good.

I need some balance.

I'm not a big fan of kale in green smoothies or sauteed for that matter and I have always felt kinda bad about this. I feel like it's so healthy I should like it. :)

But I LOVE kale chips. In fact, my whole family does.

Kale Chips:

a bunch of kale cleaned and torn
2 tsp. olive oil
sea salt

toss the kale with the olive oil until leaves are coated well. Lay out onto jelly-roll pan (trying not to over-lap the leaves). Sprinkle with sea salt and bake at 350 for 7-8 minutes.

They are so good you won't be able to stop snacking on them!

You can also put them on a salad for a little crunch.

Question of the Day:

Do you like kale and if so how do you prepare it?



  1. Wow, Amelia, thanks for the recipe. I, too want to like kale since it is so healthy. I need to get back to some good habits. I think that I eat more in the winter.

  2. I usually eat kale in soups, never heard of them as chips before, fabulous! I visit your site enough, love it, and just realized that I hadn't made it official yet by following you. Sorry! I fixed it and I am now :). Have a great day! Miriam@Meatles Meals For Meat Eaters

  3. Love kale (of course) your chips look awesome!

  4. I've been meaning to make kale chips for months now--literally. I'm newly resolved to do it. :) I mostly sautee kale and serve it with stir fry. When I sautee it, I like to add a little spicyness to it--cajun seasoning or something.

  5. I have been hearing a lot about these kale chips lately. They look so good and sound like a really healthy and delicious snack.

  6. You can also saute it and put it on pizza, where it crisps on top similar to kale chips (but not as crispy.)

  7. I enjoy kale very much! Orzo and kale makes a wonderful dish too!

    Have a lovely day,
