Crispy Kale Snack. Finally a Guilt-Free Snack!
I love this baked kale recipe because it’s just so easy to make, guilt-free, and nutritious. Making baked kale chips is super easy and it is perfect when you just need something savory, without all the carbohydrates and the packaging.
This homemade kale chips recipe is also very versatile as you just need to make a shift on the two ingredients it has, and you can take it somewhere else. Just season
Why is the Crispy Kale Snack guilt-free?
Kale has become very popular not only amongst the vegetarian and vegan communities but almost in every restaurant menu. Why?
It is very simple: Kale is among The Most Nutrient-Dense Foods on The Planet.
Some Benefits of Kale
Kale Is One of The World’s Best Sources of Vitamin K which is critical for blood clotting. A single raw cup of Kale contains almost 7 times the recommended daily amount.
For those of you wondering what does nutrient-dense mean? According to Cancer.gov Nutrient-dense food is defined as a food that is high in nutrients but relatively low in calories. Nutrient-dense foods contain vitamins, minerals, complex carbohydrates, lean protein, and healthy fats.
As you know, vegetables that are not Organic, often contain residues of pesticides that are not good for our health. Every year, depending on your country, there is a published list called the dirty dozen, containing the vegetables and fruits found to have the highest rates of pesticide residues. Kale consistently ranks on the US Ranking amongst the Top 5 head to head with Strawberries and Spinach.
So I strongly recommend you to take a look at your country’s Dirty Dozen and go for Organic on the members of that list, or wash them with extra care.
