Raise your hand if you binged on Thanksgiving? Raise your hand if you binged on Thanksgiving leftovers? It’s okay guys. Ain’t no shame! It’s so hard to eat healthy during the holidays. Everywhere you turn there is a holiday party, appetizers, drinks, candy cane Oreos/chocolate/mochas….you get the picture. You know what? It’s okay to enjoy food, but make sure to balance it out. That’s where my kale chips come into play.
I have tried a handful of kale chip recipes only to end up with burnt or bitter greens. I decided to play with the temperature until I found the result I liked. The end result is flavorful and crunchy. Perfect to satisfy my chip cravings!
