18 Feb Have a Great Weekend! 25 Day Challenge Starts Monday!
Trappy’s Kale Chips will be a great recipe to use on Monday as we launch the 25 Day Paleo challenge. Enjoy today and tomorrow. I’ll be having a farewell party to my 2 friends Yeungling and Miller Lite tonight. I’ll be hanging out with their much smarter but less hotter sister..H2O for the next 25 days.

Kale? WTF? Southern Ohio isn’t known as a hotbed for kale consumption. But you can grab the stuff at Krogers..and once the 25 day challenge comes rolling around this Monday. This will be my “go to” leafy green vegetable. Why? Click HERE…but here’s a snippet:
”One cup of kale contains 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber, and 15% of the daily requirement of calcium and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), 40% of magnesium, 180% of vitamin A, 200% of vitamin C, and 1,020% of vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus.
Kale’s health benefits are primarily linked to the high concentration and excellent source of antioxidant vitamins A, C, and K — and sulphur-containing phytonutrients.
Carotenoids and flavonoids are the specific types of antioxidants associated with many of the anti-cancer health benefits. Kale is also rich in the eye-health promoting lutein and zeaxanthin compounds.
Beyond antioxidants, the fiber content of cruciferous kale binds bile acids and helps lower blood cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease, especially when kale is cooked instead of raw.”
So to make some delicious kale chips here’s what you do!
Cut kale into chip size pieces and stuff them into ziplock freezer bag.
Pour about 1/4 – 1/2 cup of olive oil into bag and seal.
