Here’s an easy and tasty way to incorporate kale into your diet! Kale is a super-star vegetable. High in antioxidants, loaded with vitamins A and C and with disease-fighting compounds, kale also contains calcium and it is one of the best sources of vitamin K, which helps your body to absorb calcium to keep your bones strong and healthy.

Crispy Kale is one of my favorite ways to eat ! It’s a yummy pick me up snacks that is healthy and also satisfies if you’re craving something savory. Crispy Kale can be served as a side dish at lunch or dinner, or a satisfying snack while at work or in the car. Here’s how I make it:
