Kale We all know it's good for us. We've heard that about a million times. But what is it exactly that makes it so good?
-Nutrient Categories: Antioxidants (specifically carotenoids and flavonoids), Anti-inflammatory, Anti-cancer
-Good for cardiovascular health and detoxing
-A very high amount of vitamin K, which is an aspect of it's anti-inflammatory quality. Vitamin K is a fat soluble vitamin so using a high quality fat like Olive Oil on these is a sure way to unlock this nutrient.
I love making Kale chips, specifically, because it makes a really great alternative "snack" food. Today I tried some different spices than my normal salt and nutritional yeast (although those are still in here!) I thought'd I'd add in chili powder which ended up being a great success!
1 bunch of Dino Kale
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
1 Tsp Sea Salt
1/2 Tsp Chili Powder
1/8 Tsp Garlic Powder
Directions: Preheat Oven to 290. Chop Kale into small bite size pieces. Mix together the Olive Oil with the spices in a separate bowl. Toss together with Kale. Spread on a baking sheet and cook for 20 mins. Make sure to rotate the kale every 5 mins for even cooking. After it's done cooking turn off the oven and leave the tray in for 10 mins for extra crisping.
