kale chips

With the snow piling 4-5 ft in some places there isn't much to do outside, and that wouldn't be such a bad thing if it wasn't for the fact that now I have a whole lot of time to just EAT. Well, since I'm out of alter-eco's dark chocolate I decided to go for something that is also some what sweet, but much healthier when consumed in large amounts: kale. Kale is a dark leafy green, that is said to ease lung congestion and benefit the stomach, it also has abundant sulfur and is an exceptional source of chlorophyll, calcium, iron and vitamin A during its growing season in the fall, winter and early spring.

Kale chips are a yummy way to get your chlorophyll intake, and they are super simple:

Pre-heat oven to 375°F 1 bunch of kale, washed, stem removed Mix in a bowl with olive oil, salt, pepper, chili flakes and sesame seeds Place on a baking sheet in one layer and in the oven for 15 minutes, check the chips and take them out when almost completely crisp, they will crisp up as they cool down
