As I mentioned yesterday, I jumped on that kale chip bandwagon, but first, my meals from wednesday:
|Fiber One Chocolate Chewy Bar||150|
|Chips with Peach & Mango Jalapeno Salsa||100|
|Lunch||Left over salmon and rice||320|
|Dinner||Spinach and fruit salad||250|
I’m doing better in the food department. Look at all that healthy-ish-ness!
As for my exercise yesterday, I ran 4.5 miles! Ok, one of those miles I actually walked. My foot was starting to hurt so I took the third mile to rest it and then ran the last mile. I think I’m getting faster in my miles! Most of them are around 9 min/mile when it used to be 10 min/mile. Progress!
And now for what you’ve all been waiting for… KALE CHIPS! Anybody ever make these before? There are TONS of recipes out there so I just “averaged” them so to speak.
I bought a bag of kale from Wal-Mart. I didn’t realize it but it was already pre-chopped. Sweet! I probably used half of the bag and placed it in a bowl, added about 1.5 Tablespoons of olive oil and tossed them around.
I spread them out on a baking sheet and sprinkled paprika and salt lightly over them. I’ve heard a lot of people over doing it on the salt so I just added it sparingly. Then I baked the kale for 16-18 minutes at 300 degrees F. I attempted to flip them over halfway through but I’m not sure if that’s really necessary. The smaller pieces had shrunk considerably so it was hard to flip them.
They turned out nice and crispy!
I will definitely be making these again sometime! I actually liked the smaller crunchy pieces over the bigger pieces. The bigger pieces weren’t as crunchy. If you can, try to make yours all uniform in size. And remove big stems, they will become chewy and not crispy. Enjoy!
Has anybody gotten creative with their kale chips and add crazy flavors?
