Recipe Post: Kale Chips--a delicious, healthy snack!

Looking for something something healthy to munch? Sick of carrot sticks? Trying to avoid the typical salty snacks like chips and pretzels? Try kale chips. They're easy, delicious and seriously healthy. Kale is one of the most nutrient dense veggies you can eat.

I've seen this recipe in a variety of sources, so can't really credit a certain one.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Buy a big grocery store bag of organic kale (or pick it from your garden)!
Wash it
Tear it off the big, thick stems into bite-sized pieces.
Spread it out on a cookie sheet and spray it with some non-fat cooking spray (I like the canola or olive oil ones).
Season it with whatever you want. I used a spice rack seasoning that's suppose to be a mixture for ranch dressing. We really watch sodium around here, so I didn't add any extra salt.
Bake for about 15 minutes. Check them. If they are still soft at the center, back a few more minutes.
