Operation Healthy Snack
So. I think I am going to start doing some "healthy snack" segments. No, I'm not going to give up my pie (have mercy!), but healthy snacks can go a long way in encouraging good eating habits through out the day. 'Cause a girl 'gotta eat, right?
On today's docket is Kale Chips. Have you heard the buzz about Kale Chips? Super tasty, an entire bunch costs about a $1.50, and all you do is wash, dry, oil, and salt. Good deal, right?

Strip the kale leaves off the woody stem and rip into eat-able pieces. Rinse and dry well (salad spinner works great!). Place in large bowl and add 1 T. olive oil and 1/2 - 1 t. salt. Now dive in and massage those kale leaves 'til they are all shiny and coated. Place on two parchment lined baking sheets (you want them spread out so they crisp and don't steam). Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
As Jane says, "Mmm, mmm. They're so good I's can't stops eating them!" Try 'em and tell me what you think!
