Green and clean snack chips

In an effort to find healthy substitutes for those not so healthy cravings, you know those horrible salty, crunchy cravings...Try kale chips, they have a surprising similarity in flavor and crunch to a light chip of the unhealthier variety yet with a "green" aftertaste..not as bad as it sounds. Give them a try....you can choose your own blend of seasonings, I have enjoyed herb and garlic with a touch of sea salt but feel free to experiment with your own combinations . Kale is inexpensive and the chips are simple to make and hopefully will quiet the cravings and keep you on track with you healthy eating.
Kale provide a good source of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins A, K and C and a cup of kale is only 34 calories.

Tear kale into small pieces, wash and spin in your salad spinner. Spread pieces in single layer on a baking sheet. Mist with a little olive oil and sprinkle on your favorite seasonings. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Hope you enjoy experimenting with some different seasonings and please share your favorites!
