Kale Chips

One of my new obsessions are Kale Chips! There’s a few people I have to thank for introducing these into my life. Primarily my sister, Joelle, who makes some serious kale chips from scratch. Recently, my roommate Alyssa brought  me boxes of “New York Naturals: Raw Vegan Kale Chips” from the Park Slope Coop. Holy crap. I was skeptical at first, but I swear they’re better than potato chips. Plus, there is nothing bad about them. They’re raw, so all the nutrients are intact and they are packed with iron, protein and other micronutrients and phytochemicals. Not in New York? No sweat. You can buy them on Etsy! They come in Spicy Miso, and my favorite, Vegan Cheese.

    I LOVE these kale chips – and so does my 3 year old son! I also have a recipe for baking kale chips at home in the oven with olive oil and apple cider vinegar – perfect for people who don’t have dehydrators.
    Oh yeah – my book is Living Vegan for Dummies!

    Best, Alexandra

    Funny thing, I was planning on looking up recipes for kale chips this evening. I just got a dehydrator and kale chips are the first thing on my list to try. Thank you for intercepting my brain waves. Bravo!
