Craving Something Salty with a Crunch?

Kale Chips!

I know, I was hesitant at first too. This definitely sounds like a classic diet-food. But don't be fooled, these salty, crunchy "chips" will change your perception of kale. A sister of cabbage, kale is high in antioxidants, is a natural anti-inflammatory, and is high in calcium, iron, beta-carotene and vitamin C.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper
Rinse kale and tear off chunks from the thick stems (discard the stems)
Pat the kale dry and lay on the baking sheet
Sprinkle lightly with garlic salt
Bake for 10-12 minutes until chips are crispy but not burnt
