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?

    7 1/2 Weeks Post Op - 185lbs

    It's been almost 8 weeks since my surgery. I never thought I would see this day! The aqua therapy and physical therapy has paid off (as well as the surgery). My leg and back are pain free. Yesterday at my last physical therapy appointment I hopped, skipped, jumped and ran on the treadmill for 2 minutes! Pain Free!!! I never thought I would hear myself say the words: "I ran". My recovery time for this surgery was a lot tougher than the surgery I had last year. It feels like I can start to move forward. Unfortunately during my recovery time for comfort I've done a lot of eating. When I was actively exercising/running I would get a runners high. I think that was a big help to keeping me on track with my eating. The endorphins gave me a comfort high. However when I feel stress and lack of control and running isn't an option I tend to gravitate to food. Food and the pleasure of eating it is something I can control. Unfortunately there is a down side and that is we

    Sonya 'Lost It'

    Well it's now after Christmas and before New Years as I write this post.  I have been on hiatus for a long time on my blog.  I've been spending some of my time thinking about what I was going to write. I have been through some difficult times starting back in late October.  What I am about to write is very personal.   I feel a little bit foolish for sharing this with everyone as most people don't share their 'business' never mind posting it in a blog.  My hope in this post is to not have people feel sorry for me but that readers get an understanding for my situation and also an understanding of others who are going through something similar. Taking a deep breath. I am currently being treated for depression and anxiety and I'm almost finished with an intensive outpatient program at a local hospital (thankfully it's an amazing psychiatric hospital about 40 minutes from my home). For those who are reading this and have either gone through a depressive

    - 4.4lbs It's a great day!

    I've been stuck for so long at the 143 - 144lbs range I thought I would never lose any more weight so it seemed (7 weeks of being at that weight).  As my body has gotten smaller it is less willing to let go of the fat.  I think it's amazing how our bodies adapt to changes in our diet and exercise.  Today I stepped on the scale and it said a - 4.4lbs!  WOW!  Finally my hard work paid off.  I must say some of what may have helped is I started a new training program to prepare for my 12 K in addition to lifting weights again, drinking more water and being super diligent about keeping track of everything I put in my mouth. I'm feeling sore today after my Butts and Guts class yesterday morning.  I had a different instructor and my muscles have taken notice :-)  Today I ran 2 miles at a relaxed pace on the treadmill with a very small incline of 1.2.  I ran/walked 2 miles in 22 mins and 15 seconds.  Tomorrow I'm scheduled to do 30 - 40 minutes of cardio other than running
