A “new” (to me) healthy snack

(Kale chips, Embracing Balance)

Why wait until the new year to kickstart your resolutions when you can start  now?

OK…so this is actually one of the resolutions I made for 2011 — eat more veggies. And while I wouldn’t say I was successful, I did throughout the year add a few more salads and vegetable side dishes to my meals. But chatting this month with a fellow freelancer who is also on the eat-more-veggies track reminded me I still have a long way to go.

(After all, that incredible spinach gratin Chuck Hughes made in his recent Chuckmas Christmas special is not the kind of veggie dish I should have on the regular…although that’s the kind of veg dish I love, you know where the cheese and cream outweighs the vegetables)

Which also reminded me that I have yet to bake up some kale chips.

I love chips + I love kale = I am sure to love kale chips.

And kale’s high in antioxidants, omega 3s, fibre, etc. (ie. these chips will be way healthier than a bag of Ruffles)

I know. I’m a little late to the party (kale chips, so 2008…). Kale chips have actually been on my to-do list for several years now, but I again was reminded of this remaining to-do, this time thanks to the lovely blogger Jaime at Embracing Balance who was recently tweeting about her kale chip experiments, and so kale chipping I will do.

    Love kale chips, glad you finally got to them. I love to do something similar with brussel sprouts. If you chop them up the leaves become fine, toss with some olive oil and garlic powder, roast them and voila, crispy little brussel sprout chips.
