How This Nourishes Your Body
Spinach, Arugula, and Kale Chips
I love Kale Chips!
The more greens, the happier the body. Eating leafy greens every day can be a challenge, especially with time, kids, work, life. I especially hate it when you buy a bunch of greens, don’t use them, and they start to go bad. Well here is my solution: take those greens that are starting to go bad add some spices and oil and just bake them up and worry no more.
Notes for Green and Kale Chips
If you have a dehydrator, that is THE BEST way to make green chips because the low heat keeps all of the enzymes and nutrients in store. But, cooked greens with some healthy fat is still one nutrient dense side or snack.
Kale chips are all the rage, but what about spinach and arugula as well! Kale does work the best, but that doesn’t mean other greens can’t get the love too.
Feel free to add whatever spices you like! Sea salt, turmeric, cumin, and garlic are my absolute favorite!
