Meet My Friend: Our Plant Based Family

Jessica and I go waaaay back, like to 5th grade! We played together for years and slept over and I even saw Back to the Futre 3 at one of her birthday parties! She is great. And her blog is great too. Full of healthy, allergy friendly, gluten free, plant based meals. She has a lot of great ideas and you should check her out here!

Kale Chips

Don't be afraid of little green things! These chips are so tasty. You may find yourself eating a whole batch (like we did). That's okay... they are really good for you. Kale is an excellent source of calcium, lutein, iron, and Vitamins A, C and K. The Icing on the Kale" is the naturally occurring all important phyotochemicals which research suggests may protect against cancer. All in a light crispy chip. They are so easy to make too! Gluten-free, vegan, nut-free, soy-free.

1 bunch (around 6 ounces) kale

1 TBS olive oil

Sea salt to taste (don't over do it you can always add more after they bake)

Preheat oven to 300. Rinse and dry the kale, then remove them stems and tough center ribs. Cut into large pieces, toss with olive oil and salt. Arrange leaves in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
