I recently had to do a recipe demo for nutrition school that included a discussion of the benefits of each ingredient in the recipe. It had to be nutritious and delicious. The first thing that came to mind? Kale chips! These aren’t just any kale chips. They are a super-flavorful, nutrient-dense, light snack that is a good source of plant-based protein and healthy fat. They also happen to be vegan, gluten-free, and paleo-friendly. So if that’s your jam, you’re welcome!
If you’re a kale skeptic, hang with me. These have convinced plenty of people that kale can actually be tasty. My dog (a golden retriever) even ate an entire batch of these (yes, 2 heads of kale!). No joke. She’s never grabbed food off the counter, and routinely ignores all veggies (except carrots) that fall on the floor while I cook, but she managed to snag these from a plate in the middle of the counter and devour the whole thing.
