I LOVE snacks, especially when I can easily make them out of ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.

When I first transitioned to a healthier way of eating, I thought all of my new snacks were unremarkable substitutes for the processed junk that I had previously been chowing down on. After cleansing my palate, I realized that these snacks are not meant to substitute the sugary confections and salt licks that I enjoyed in my former life. My new snacks are not only healthier, but more flavorful and filling than their processed counterparts.

These kale chips are a prime example of the phenomena that I am describing. What started out as, “Groan…kale chips? Really?” has become “There better still be some kale chips left when I get home!”  Yes, I am totally serious.

Try these recipes out and see if they don’t have you mean-mugging your household when they’re gone. (Don’t say I didn’t warn you – if you want to see my take on nacho flavored kale chips, click HERE)!

To Prepare Kale Leaves for all recipes:

1. Spray 1 bunch of kale with a veggie wash and rinse well (or just rinse well if organic).

2. Remove stalk from kale and tear into chip size pieces. Make them larger than you want the chip to be because they will shrink while baking.

3. Dry leaves in a salad spinner to remove excess water and pat dry with a paper towel to remove any remaining visible water if necessary.
