This yummy recipe, which is a twist on traditional kale chips, is stolen from my friend Marcia at Finca Palugo in Ecuador. It was just too good not to share.
Kale is one of my favorite greens and it's extremely good for you! One cup of kale has nearly 3 grams of protein and 2.5 grams of fiber (which helps manage blood sugar and makes you feel full). It has Vitamins A, C, K, Folate, and Alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid. Because it is in the cruciferous family (cabbage, broccoli, etc), it is better consumed cooked for those with thyroid issues.
