You guys! I opened up my fridge today and the entire middle shelf was green!  My fridge is rocking the pantone color of the year more than I am.  I’m not the most trendy person with fashion but with food I sure am!  Before we get to the kale chips I have to tell you some exciting news.  We recently just added a juicer into the family and I’ve been juicing all the things.  Beets have to be my absolute favorite and this juicer will hopefully convert my husband into a beet-liever too (see what I did there!).   I’m kind of obsessed with it and can’t wait to share my juicing recipes with you.  I’m totally sipping one right now as I write.

Kale Chips

Onto the kale chips!

If you listened to my Instagram story the other day I mentioned that I don’t really like to have chips in the house because I have little resolve to stay away from them.  That is mostly a true statement.  As I wrote, my fridge is mostly green.  I simply cannot eat enough salads in the next 3 days to go through all the greens in there.  Making kale chips is the best way to use up those greens instead of letting them go to waste.   When at the grocery store, purchase an extra bunch of organic kale to make these crunchy yummies.  This is a much cheaper and healthier option than a bag of potato chips.  An organic bunch of kale cost $1.99 where as a bag of potato chips may cost closer to $3.

And what a fun activity to do with your kids! They would love ripping the leaves from the stem.  My science brain goes right towards teaching them about dehydration and water properties.  Anyone else?

I have tried so many different bags of kale chips and I remember the first time I tried one was before making them at home.  I was so turned off by them because the bagged kale chips were always so salty or not crunchy enough and honestly just plain nasty.  Then my mom made some during a visit home and I could not stop eating them!  I was addicted in one bite.  Homemade kale chips are delicate and you get to dictate the taste by adding the flavors you want.  So worth it.

Enjoy a bowl of these guilt free! Just be sure to check your teeth before you leave the house. I can’t wait to hear about your adventures trying out this recipe!  Please come back and tell me how it goes and stay tuned for more recipes!

    This sounds very interesting. I have only tried Kale in a juice smoothie that I tried a while back and I have to admit I wasn’t impressed, but maybe I will give it another try! Kale chips sound like they may not be half bad.
