Kale, Kale, and more Kale

Nutrition tips Offered by Vancouver Chiropractor

I know there has been a lot of hype about how Vancouverites love their kale.  I actually just made kale chips this morning!  Why wouldn’t we want to take advantage of a relativelty inexpensive produce that is packed full of nutrients?

Here’s a great infographic from the folks over at nutribullet, followed by my recipe for Kale chips.

nutritional tips from Vitality Clinic

 

Kale chips
1. Rinse and de-stem the kale.
2. Place in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil (or really any oil you have.. I use grape seed myself).
3. Season with garlic poweder (optional), seasoning salt, and pepper. 4. Transfer kale to a cookie sheet.
4. Place in the oven at 200F for 20-30 minutes or until the kale is dark green and crispy. You don’t want to see any black or you’ve over cooked it.

There you have it; a nutritious snack for all!
