Kale is often touted to be one of the healthiest vegetables on the planet. It belongs to the Brassica family which includes cabbage, collard greens, and broccoli. It’s probably the most used vegetable in my house, but for a smoothie. I have never made baked Kale chips because it just sounded gross. So I found this recipe, tweaked it a little to my liking and wallah! It was actually really really good!
Did you know that Kale’s nutrient profile is outstanding when it comes to the antioxidant Vitamins A, C, and K. In fact, 1 cup of kale will supply your body with the 1180.1% of the %DV requirement for Vitamin K. It also has many sulfur-containing phytonutrients. When compared to all other vegetables Kale ranks superior in antioxidant concentrations. Which I knew, that’s why I try to eat a little every day.
If you’re following Paleo, consider incorporating this nutritious vegetable in your diet. Where to start with this leafy green? Give my baked kale chips a try – an easy baked, delicious snack to keep your hunger at bay.
