Kale Chips – Part of Luna’s Snack Arsenal

on March 7, 2014

Yes, you can make your own kale chips with a dehydrator or baked in an oven.  I just don’t have a minute to spare with Luna, no Luna’s dad in the picture, work, and projects that are works in progress.  Luna is my little eating machine and I cannot leave the house without being armed with an arsenal of snacks.  I usually have a variety of assorted nuts (cashews, Brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflowers seeds, walnuts), a banana or blueberries, Lara Bar – Apple Pie, Brad’s Raw Sweet Potato Chips or Alive & Radiant Foods Kale Chips in Perfectly Plain.  

The Alive & Radiant Kale Chips have six simple, clean ingredients – Organic kale, organic pumping seeds, organic lemon juice, organic chia seeds, organic extra virgin olive oil, and Himalayan crystal salt.  All organic and legible! Keep it simple!  

You can also eat a half a bag of these chips and will get 5g of protein, 2g of fiber, 5g of carbohydrates, 9g of fat and only 110 calories.   You’ll also get vitamin A & C, iron, and calcium… Pretty good for a snack on the go that you don’t have to make! 

IF you wanted to make this on your own, heres how:

From Scratch-Baked Kale Chips 

Preheat oven to 250F degrees  

1-2 bunches of kale wash and dry. Tear leaves off spine and into bite size pieces.

Mix 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil with 1 teaspoon of sea salt in a bowl or use ziplock bag.  Add kale in and coat.

Place on baking sheet so the leaves are not piled up.  You can sprinkle Himalayan sea salt and red pepper flakes to spice it up.  

Cook for 20-30minutes, keep checking chips so they don’t turn brown.  

That’s it!
