Guest Post- Sometimes Sweet!

I am so honored to have the lovely Danielle of Sometimes Sweet guest blogging today! She is a huge inspiration to me and I just adore her blog! Plus, the girl can cook!

Kale Chips

I absolutely love potato chips, but since I've been on a no-sugar kick I've been avoiding starchy foods as well. A great alternative to potato chips are kale chips. At first glance these may seem a little scary to make OR eat, but trust me, they're super simple to create and taste delicious! 

First off, buy a bunch of kale at your local grocer. If your regular store doesn't carry it, try your natural foods store, but it should be pretty easy to find.
Preheat your oven to 350.
Tear the leaves off of the long stem running down the middle. I tossed the leaves into a colander as I tore them off. Rinse the leaves WELL and dry thoroughly. We don't have a salad spinner, so I just used a paper towel to try off each individual piece.

Place the leaves in a single layer on parchment paper, on a cookie sheet. Below you'll see that I accidentally used wax paper at big deal until the oven started smoking! haha. When that happened I just moved the kale straight onto the cookie sheet and it was just fine. But anyway, drizzle olive oil and vinegar all over the leaves, then top with sea salt. If you don't want to do the vinegar you can just do olive oil.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until you notice the leaves shrinking and looking crispy. We had no issues with the kale being soggy whatsoever, and each chip was crispy and REALLY delicious!

Thanks for having me! Enjoy!
