I love kale. I lovvveeeeee kale. And that’s an understatement.
And I love to munch. Kale chips are a perfect snack for me. I get something healthy and flavorful and I don’t feel bad when I binge on it. In fact, bingeing on it is quite alright.
The crunch is just like a potato chip. And the flavor profile is whatever you want it to be. You can add garlic to this for a kick or even cinnamon for a sweet flair. Let your imagination inspire you.
The only bad thing about this snack is the risk of getting a little green between your teeth. Just check a mirror. 😉
