Healthy Food Swap: Kale Chips

We all have cravings. I, myself, have one for some savory chips. Unfortunately, this isn’t a very healthy option. SWAP your Potato Chips for Kale Chips instead!

While potato chips may be delicious, they aren’t very helpful to our body’s insulin levels and are full of Butylhydroxytoluene, commonly known as BHT, which is frequently used by the food industry to prevent rancidity in packaged baked goods and snacks.

On the other hand, Kale Chips are both delicious and nutritious! They contain dietary fiber and calcium, as well as vitamins A, C, K and B6. It also has protein, thiamin, riboflavin, folate, iron, magnesium and phosphorus. Here’s an easy recipe!

How to Make Kale Chips: 

  1. Gather ingredients:
    1. Kale
    2. Olive oil
    3. Salt and Pepper
  2. Chop up kale into bite sized pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale.
  3. Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt and pepper.
  4. Stick the kale in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Enjoy your tasty snack!
