Kale chips: a call to arms against potato chips
Healthy kale chips: a call to arms against potato chips
Let’s start with the basics first.
Who doesn’t love chips (or crips)? I don’t really know anyone. I for one absolutely adore eating chips and I could spent literally all of my nights sipping on white wine and having handfuls of chips, parmigiana and prosciutto.
You know what I don’t like though? Unnecessary calories and heart diseases. So, if you are like me, I know you will love this quick and healthy kale chips recipe.
Kale or leaf cabbage is becoming one of the most popular healthy foods today and for good reasons.
Kale provides a rich source vitamins and minerals with 700% vitamin K in just one cup of chopped kale. Vitamin K plays an instrumental role in blood clotting, prevents excessive bleeding and is essential in bone metabolism. As a matter of fact it’s been considered as a natural way to treat osteoporosis. It can also reduce the risk of heart diseases, type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
To me this is more than enough to make kale chips and kale in general part of my nutrition and why not, power up my mornings.
It’s also an excellent way to make your children love vegetables while the blood clotting properties of Vitamin K are ideal for pregnant women and reduce the risk of a possible miscarriage.
