kale chips featured

I’ve always been a bit of a savoury fan rather than sweet fan.  And going healthy was really a test of just how well I could go without salt and vinegar chips in particular!  I’d tried veggie chips from the supermarket.. and quite frankly would have preferred to eat the packet!

I honestly can’t remember where I first came across Kale Chips but OMG… when they are seasoned just right and cooked to that perfect point of crispness without burning they are seriuously the best thing since…well… salt and vinegar chips.

I prefer mine seasoned with nutritional yeast.. or if I’m in a dairy mood, some parmesan cheese – but you could use paprika, chilli, garlic salt… there are also sorts of options…and even salt and vinegar!
