1 Bunch Kale

Lightly spray with Olive Oil

Sprinkle Salt/Garlic/Seasonings of Your Choice  (I love organic ginger)

Preheat oven to 300.  Cut up the Kale into pieces, toss with the olive oil and seasonings.

Then, place in the oven and bake for about 15 min until crispy.  Toss the organic kale chips a time or two throughout the cooking process.  Cool or eat warm.

 

You can also include Kale in your salads and juicing your organic Kale is a great idea too.  As with any vegetable, the less you heat it the more nutrients remain in tact.  Whatever your pleasure, try to get some Kale at least a few times a week.  When you do, you’ll notice a difference in how you look and feel right away.

What you eat affects you greatly.  Keep it healthy with lots of fruits and veggies (including Kale), organic whole grains, nuts and legumes, and your body will reward you with skin that emits a healthy glow only possibly when you’re truly healthy inside and out!
