Go ahead.  Splurge.  It’s 2:00 a.m. and you’re craving a snack.  Who would’ve believed eating chips so late would be good for you?  Let me let you in on a little secret.  Indulging on late night chips is not just a good idea, it’s a great idea!  We’re not talking about potato chips though.  We’re talking kale chips.  They’re great for any diet:  the paleo diet, the South Beach Diet, the Atkin’s Diet…you name it.

Unlike the potato, kale is a superfood because of the high amount of antioxidants in each leaf.  Watch the video below to see how I make kale chips.

Get shredded on the late night chip diet!

Making kale chips is easy,and only takes about 15 minutes total to make.  If you want to save a few minutes, you can buy packaged kale at Trader Joe’s.  There’s only 3 things you need:  kale, olive oil, salt, an oven, and a baking pan.  All combined, one cup of kale chips is less than 100 calories.  It’s easy to make and nutritious.  Follow these simple steps:

1.  Heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit

2.  While it’s heating, cut the kale into pieces and lightly drizzle olive oil over the top of it in the baking pan.  Use your hands, mix it together, making sure every leaf is covered.

3.  After the kale is lightly covered in olive oil, sprinkle some salt over the top.

4.  Put the pan in the oven and wait between 10-12 minutes.

5.  Check and make sure the kale is crispy, and you’re done.

Kale chips are easy, and I think they even taste better than potato chips.  Making small changes in your diet can yield big results.  Kale chips are just one substitution you can implement in your diet today.

    Why didn’t you remind James & I of this last night so we wouldn’t have had Burger King! ha, good video I have been meaning to look up how to make some Kale chips as I usually just throw tons of kale in a blender & make a fruit/veggie smoothie. Kristen was hilarious video taping this 😉

      I like to use kale in my shakes too. For some reason, the Ninja makes the protein too frothy. I gotta make some bulk kale chips for group soon!

    Great tip! I’ll have to try that. I dropped 30lbs using the 4-hour body method, growing strength/musle as well, but always looking for good snacks!
