Kale chips. They might be one of the first “health foods” I ever made. You know, when I started cooking for myself instead of eating whole-grain cereals or veggie subs for every meal. If you haven’t tried them yet, you’ve been missing out! And if you have tried them, you’re probably thinking, “Geez, Christina, you’re sharing a recipe for kale chips now? I already have two dozen, lovingly curated since they became a health trend six years ago!” To which I say: Fair point. I don’t know how this recipe got lost in the shuffle. These Garlic Salt Kale Chips are literally the only way I’ve ever made kale chips and probably the only way I ever will. With just oil, salt, and optional garlic powder, it doesn’t get any easier! They are the perfect antidote to the chip cravings my husband often gets, plus they’re a great way to use up any leftover kale, which I seem to collect. Especially in the winter when an ice-cold kale smoothie sounds like a really terrible idea!
Looking for high-quality meat?
The great nutrition conundrum of our times is how to make a healthy diet sustainable, not just for us and our families, but for future generations. It’s no secret that factory farming has been disastrous for the environment, never mind the welfare of us or our food. So I try to prioritize ethically-harvested, sustainably-raised, grass-fed or pastured proteins. US Wellness Meats not only fits the bill, but they also have a huge variety of other products: Seafood, game meats, jerky, bone broth, sausage, tallow, pork rinds… there’s a lot to love. Free shipping combined with bi-weekly deals from their newsletter can make them more affordable than your local supermarket for meat that’s antibiotic-free, humanely-raised, and really, really good.
