The Benefits of Kale

We’ve all heard that kale is so good for us, but it often gets a bad reputation for not tasting very well. I love kale, but I don’t ever try to eat it raw without adding something to it first. If you are eating it raw in a salad, I recommend massaging the kale with dressing first or letting it soak for a bit. If you want to try kale as a healthy, grab and go snack, then my kale chips are the perfect recipe for you. Kale chips are a much easier way to get the benefits of this green guy without having to gag it down. I add pink Himalayan salt, because it’s a healthy salt. It contains 84 trace minerals and iodine. The nutritional yeast gives it a cheesy-nutty flavor and the cayenne pepper adds that nice heat, but go easy on it if you can’t handle the heat.
