Kale Chips

Hoping to get to the grocery store tomorrow.  I've been without mixed greens the last few days and I'm missing eating salad at dinner.  It's amazing how my body has gotten accustomed to eating really good food like lots of fruits and veggies.  I noticed when my intake of these foods goes down my body actually craves them.  For veggies on hand I had some kale and decided to make some Kale Chips.

If you're interested in trying something different and healthy give this recipe a try:


Kale Chips

  • 1 bunch of curly leaf kale




  • Cooking spray




  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt (or to taste)




  • Preheat oven to 350.
    Tear the leafs into chip size pieces (discard the vein that runs down the center of the leaf).
    Wash kale and dry really well with a salad spinner and a paper towel or two (make sure the kale is really dry).
    Spray pan with cooking spray.
    Place dry kale on pan and spray the kale with cooking spray.  Sprinkle with seasoned salt and bake for 10 - 15mins (watch carefully so the kale doesn't burn).

    When it comes to kale chips people either love them or hate them.  I love kale chips and I hope you like them as much as I do.  Kale chips are a great way to get more veggies in your diet.  Enjoy!

    1. I love kale chips too. I've made them with olive oil and a little salt, and they taste so good. Lately, I've been making them with tahini, garlic, lemon juice, and tamari, and they are delicious. I find the food dehydrator works a lot better than the oven - they come out really crispy.

    2. Roxanna thank you for the info on the food dehydrator. I've never used one before. What else have you used yours for?

    Weight Watchers vs. Jillian Michael's

    It's been a little over 3 years (January 2010) since I started my weight loss journey. I reached my goal weight in May of 2011 (135 lbs). Since then it's been a yoyo and my trend had been going up over the last several months. My current weight is 150 lbs (I was 155 but lost 5lbs over the last few weeks). My goal is to lose the weight I put back on (20 lbs) plus an additional 5 lbs for a weight loss of 25 lbs in total. It's so hard keeping the weight off!!

    The strategy I'm now doing this time is different. I've decided to follow Jillian Michael's weight loss program instead of continuing on with Weight Watchers. I lost the 80lbs on Weight Watchers and the program served me well. It forced me to look at portion size, calories (with old points system), fiber, carbs, fat and protein (with the new points plus system).  It changed the way I looked at food. Instead of processed foods I focused on eating a variety of whole fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains and low …

    Healthy Boundaries?

    Growing up I always felt like I had to 'do what I was told' or else. A lot of what I learned as a child in terms of relationship bonds and my place in the world is mirrored in my adult relationships. It's taken me many years to figure what my mirror is showing me both good and bad.

    I'm guessing many woman (not all) have felt the pressure to conform to others expectations and at the same time not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings or risk being seen as uncooperative. The price woman have paid over the decades has been insurmountable. I think of the mom on Leave It To Beaver, and how woman either bought into or felt that's what they should aspire to. Later on in television was the Mary Tyler Moore Show. The show was about a single woman in her thirties working at a TV station. In the show she was portrayed as a strong independent woman who knew more than those she worked with. Many decades since then more women are in the workplace than ever and more are showing …

    Mini Blizzards

    Genius


    Mini blizzards are great when you want something sweet on occasion but don't want to kill yourself with tons of calories (there are still more calories in a mini blizzard compared to a cup of carrot sticks however).  This PB cup Mini Blizzard was perfect size and hit the spot.
