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?

    The #MeToo Campaign

    Fingers crossed that this trend continues. For the past 10 days, I've been feeling energetic for the first time since? It's been so long I can't remember. I'm feeling cautiously optimistic. It feels like I don't have depression anymore. What an amazing feeling that I hope never ends. Its kind of ironic as this time of year gets difficult with the shorter days. I've been using my Verilux lamp in the morning as I have for the last few years so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with why I'm feeling good? I'm feeling better now than I did a year ago. 

    Depression doesn't affect me in ways someone might think when it comes to energy. I'm high functioning in that I'm not catatonic. It's just that my energy is limited (occasionally it feels like gravity is turned up or I'm trying to walk through waist-deep snow thankfully not often). A friend once explained to me what it's like to have Lyme disease (unfortunately she has chronic…

    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 …

    Trying the 'New' Weight Watchers Program

    I've been on the new WW program starting January 11th, 2018 (to date 3/21/2018 I've lost 7 lbs).  Why? Because what do I have to lose besides pounds of course!? My sanity perhaps on what seems like a life long journey. Woops! Too late!

    My ultimate goal in life when it comes to health and weight loss is to be able to eat without counting calories or points. That can be very difficult for me. Since starting this blog I have earned a degree in Exercise Science and I now have certifications: ACSM CPT, ACE GFI and I've completed coursework to be a licensed coach in my state. With all my education and personal experience (80 lb weight loss) I would have thought things would be easier by now but they're not. Science has proven that when it comes to weight loss it's calories in vs. calories out. Unfortunately calorie counting doesn't account for all the psychological, sociological and biological reasons why we eat what we eat. I need to try a new approach so I'm g…
