If you like salty crunchy potato chips, you will love kale chips.

Raw kale is kind of tough and serious, but kale chips are flaky and whimsical. It’s like the bad cop/ good cop duo of the vegetable world.

They are the type of snack that will leave you shaking your head and saying “WHY haven’t I made these before?” Kids love them, boyfriends gobble them up.

They fit my criteria of eating foods that make you feel good before, during AND after you eat them. You’ll feel kinda guilty and gross if you eat a bag of potato chips. Not so with kale chips!¬†They are shockingly delicious and oh-so-simple.

Here’s what you do:

Preheat the oven to 375. Wash a bunch of kale, pull the leaves off the stems, and cut into small pieces. Then line a cookie sheet with tin foil. Take about a tablespoon of olive oil and drizzle it over your kale. Use your hands to rub the oil into the leaves. Then sprinkle some sea salt over the kale. Put it in the oven for about 10 minutes, until the kale is delightfully crispy. Snack away!
