Kid-Approved Crispy Kale Chips

Summer’s on its way, which means my annual diet is too. I’m always looking for healthy recipes that don’t taste like “diet food”, and this one for Crispy Kale Chips is definitely a keeper!

Jess and Sonia, head foodies over at Damn Delish, shared this recipe with me. I had some kale sitting in the fridge that I needed to use, so I thought I’d try the recipe out myself! It literally takes a minute to throw together and in ten minutes you have a yummy snack that will make you forget about potato chips and french fries…well, almost make you forget about them.
