OK so… I’ll go ahead and admit that sometimes I am a giant snobby bitch when it comes to food. I really don’t like “diety” foods and I get somewhat annoyed with “healthy” recreations of unhealthy foods. For this reason, I was really reluctant to get into Kale Chips despite their growing popularity. A few months ago, however, I bought some at the grocery store (thinking maybe I was wrong)… I could not have been more disappointed. TOTALLY GROSS! They were covered in fake vegan cheese and WAY to much salt. Hard as a rock and just terrible UGH!! I thought I had confirmed my hatred for kale chips and solidified my argument against healthy junk food.
But then, over Christmas, my sister-in-law made a batch fresh and insisted that I try one. It was absolutely amazing! Not attempting to be a cheese curl, not trying to imitate a potato chip, just amazing amazing crispy baked kale! SO SO GOOD! This is the recipe that she made and I have made them probably 3 times already since then. Overall I couldn’t be happier with this super simple recipe — so happy in fact that I added a Snack category to the blog… who knows maybe more paleo snack recipes will start surprising me!
