The Healthiest Crunchy Salty Snack—Homemade Kale Chips!

I hope you all enjoyed an amazing and relaxing weekend! And that you have given yourselves a food break from all the holiday excess and enjoyed some healthy grub to balance yourselves out from the junk that seems to be everywhere this holiday season! I know how hard it can be to resist~ trust me, I’ve been there.

Eating well and healthily can be a constant challenge. And during the holiday season it is particularly difficult with all the parties, events, dinners and seemingly endless supply of chocolate gifts that we receive from well meaning clients and friends.

This is why I always recommend to my clients that they stay armed and prepared with healthy, yummy food that they can bring as an appetizer or dessert to holiday parties so this way there is something there that not only they can enjoy, but they can share with their friends so that they too may see that it can be delicious to eat well.

Today’s Motivational Monday is going to offer one such snack. Kale Chips are becoming quite popular these days and you can buy them pre-made, but trust me when I tell you, that they are not nearly as delicious or healthy as homemade and they take just minutes to make. Not only do kale chips satisfy even the most ardent salt cravings, they are good for you too!

Take a look, give them a try and let me know what you think, because as you know, I love to hear your feedback. Have you made kale chips before? Are there any particular spices or herbs you like to use to make them taste delicious? Let me know in your comments below.

Also, if you are looking for another great suggestion that you can bring as healthy appetizer to your next holiday party, let me suggest the three bean salad. And if dessert is more your thing, bring along the raw ice cream. I promise, your friends will them!

Have a great week everyone and I’ll be speaking with you again next Monday~

    I finally got some kale last night (while shopping for carrot tarragon soup ingredients). I made 2 big batches of it and was wondering how long it would keep when the kids came home and reluctantly tried one. By the end of the night it was all gone (I guess that’s how long it keeps). Parental victory!

    The carrot soup was awesome too. I was shocked at how flavorful it was. Thanks for the great ideas Barbara!
