Baked Kale Chips

Growing up, I thought of kale as a salad bar decoration.  We would put large bundles of kale over the ice in the salad bar at the pizza restaurant I worked in. I never even knew you could eat the stuff.  It wasn’t until I became a dietitian that I started realizing the amazing nutrient richness of this dark green leafy veggie.  Kale can help your body naturally detox at a cellular level and provides more than 1,300% of the DV for vitamin K.  Even after I learned so many benefits to eating this veggie,  I couldn’t think of any way to prepare it.  Until one day at Google one of the chefs in Nourish prepared crispy baked kale chips as an appetizer at our cooking demonstration.  Now, whenever I get a big bunch I love to make a nice weekend snack for the family.  I can eat almost the whole bunch myself!
