Monday Motivation – snacking

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I miss eating something “crunchy.”  So what are good HEALTHY snacks?  

  • 12 roasted, lightly salted almonds
  • 10 mini carrots
  • 6 mini carrots
  • KALE chips!

What?  You’ve never tried Kale chips?  I LOVE them, and they are so easy to make!  Kale is very inexpensive (usually around $1.00 for a bunch at most grocery stores).  Buy a bunch (or two – if you have children, they’ll love them).  

  • Pull the leaves off the kale stems, wash them, and let them dry very well.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.img_3677
  • Put the kale in a large bowl; shake on a little olive oil and some sea salt. (Careful with the salt or you’ll make it too salty)
  • Place the kale pieces on a baking sheet that you have sprayed with Pam (or some other baking spray).
  • Cook the kale for 12 to 15 minutes.  I like mine a little browner and crisper, so I cook for 15 minutes.
  • Dry on a paper towel.  
  • Store in a ziplock bag (if you and your family don’t eat them all first!)img_3680
