These kale chips are super delicious and obviously really healthy!
A few years ago I did a cleanse. All I could eat for the first ten days were vegetables and fruit! This was difficult for me because I love eggs, meat, and of course my weekly cheat meal!
In the beginning, I had cravings like crazy! Especially salty cravings. I wanted chips…which is weird because I never really eat them anyway. I think once I tell myself I’m not allowed to eat something, that is all I want from then on out.
Due to my cravings, I was forced to find a healthy alternative. That is when I thought to make chips out of Kale! It satisfied my craving for something salty and crunchy, plus it was actually healthy for me! This way I didn’t have to feel guilty about eating them.
I made these kale chips probably a thousand times while on the cleanse. I even continued to make them after I was done with the cleanse because I loved them so much!
If you are are like me and love to eat healthy but still crave salty/crunchy goodies, then trust me you will LOVE kale chips!
