Update and Redux: C – We couldn’t have a snack week without one of my favorite snacks. Homemade kale chips are way better than those hard-as-a-rock ones that you get at the grocery store. Buy a bunch a kale and bake away. Snacking on these is healthy and delicious.
C — I love chips.
Especially when they are healthy for me.
I love the crunch. I heard once that crunchy foods make you de-stress. So, I eat a lot of crunchy foods. Especially chips. Yeah, I am a pretty stressed out person. Hate to admit it. Kale chips are my comfort food. I love kale chips. Healthiest vegetable gets a crunch.
Why the heck are kale chips $5.00 a bag at the grocery store? Kale is $1.00 a bunch and it comes with a lot. Olive oil, salt and an oven is all you need. The total doesn’t seem to add up to me. I don’t need so much stuff on it. I just don’t get it. I don’t think I need to pay an extra $4.00 for convenience.
If you do need to add stuff on it try this. They could last a couple of days in a brown paper bag, but they won’t last. Believe me.
