Denise’s Crispy Kale

SONY DSC

 

Hi Everyone!

Here’s an easy and tasty way to incorporate kale into your diet! Kale is a super-star vegetable. High in antioxidants, loaded with vitamins A and C and with disease-fighting compounds, kale also contains calcium and it is one of the best sources of Vitamin K, which helps your body to absorb calcium to keep your bones strong and healthy.

One of my favorite ways to eat kale is crispy! It’s a yummy pick me up snack that is healthy and also satisfies if you’re craving something savory. Crispy Kale can be served as a side dish at lunch or dinner, or a satisfying snack while at work or in the car. Here’s how I make it:

SERVES: 2

EACH SERVING: 60 calories

INGREDIENTS:

1 large bunch of kale, washed, de-boned and trimmed (3 cups)

Olive oil spray

1 tbsp. kosher salt

2 tbsp. pressed garlic

1 tbsp. red pepper flakes

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Make sure kale is well washed and trimmed. Remove stems. Place on baking sheet. Spritz kale lightly with olive oil spray. Sprinkle with pressed garlic, kosher salt, and red pepper flakes and toss. Bake in oven until crispy, approximately 8 minutes.

It is Monday on my second week. To summarize last week I did all my workouts by getting up earlier. I did also manage to watch my portions and tried some of the recipes, which I thought were really good. I did eat a double portion last night for dinner :( cause I had waited to long to eat. But I did lose 6 lbs my first week! I look forward to this week.

I made this crispy kale chips today and it is delicious. I didn’t use any salt though cuz I find kale is naturally salty enough for my liking.
