great ideas

Kale Chips…..HA.

Not to be confused with curly mustard…..don’t put two leafy greens that look the same next to each other grocery employees, especially when one is extremely SPICY and NOT Kale. You know, customers might mistake the two, and accidentally use curly mustard in their attempt at a healthy smoothie and accidentally burn their throat. JUST saying. I’ve heard this kind of stuff happens.

Okay, so maaaaaybe I’m the only goof ball with that kind of luck. I swear I looked at the labels…ugh.

Point being, I’m trying to find a non bloaty way to incorporate Kale in our daily diets. First, I tried it raw, n’ every single time, bloat. Then, tried frying it, steaming it, etc…nothing but pain. Pain in the stomach, chest, and butt. Totally turned off after feeling like I was going to have a heart attack and baby all at the same time.

Been months since I’ve had it, and recently I saw bags of the stuff in stores as, “kale chips.” I was interested until I saw that they were priced at $7.00, yowza, too expensive for something that may just make me feel like a bloated dog again. So, decided to make some at home.

All I needed to buy for this recipe was the bunch of kale, had everything else, so already I was ahead of the game. I hate it when people say that, “ahead of the game, or game changer.” Whatever. So, I made the dang kale chips, and they were tasty.¬†Doubt they still have the same nutrients being cooked in this manner, but they’re probably not a bad snack option. It’d be great to serve to friends & family, maybe over a salad or soup. Glad I found a way to eat the leafy greens, I still feel a tad bit queazy when I have ’em but not nearly as bad as every other way. They were really good I tell you, between the fianc√© and I, they were gone faster than I thought they would be.

A win. Thumbs up to you kale chips…definitely baking you again.
