So now that you know all about Chia seeds, it’s time to meet another superfood… kale! You’ve probably heard a lot about this one lately – it’s a powerhouse of nutrients. It boosts immunity and contains antioxidants, calcium and fiber. Kale also has Vitamin A, which studies show helps reduce respiratory infections in children. So make sure you chow down on some kale, too – you’ll need it to keep up with the kiddos and their krazy kale energy!
You can use kale in a million different ways – substitute it for other greens like spinach and lettuce in salads, pasta or dips, sauté it with olive oil and garlic, or bake it up and nosh on it like potato chips. Really healthy, guilt-free potato chips…
- 1 bunch or bag of kale
- Your favorite cheese (Parmesan and Asiago are delicious) or spices
- Olive oil
- Kosher salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Tear the leaves off the stems into bite size pieces. Spread out on cookie sheets.
Drizzle with olive oil, about 2 tablespoons
Sprinkle with cheese or spices/seasonings, plus a sprinkle of kosher salt (you can always do just the salt for a simple and equally yummy version)
Bake for about 15 minutes, until edges are brown and kale is crispy when moved in pan.
