20 Minute AMRAP
15 Air Squats
I like chips. A lot. No, really, a LOT. I’d be embarrassed to tell you all how many corn chips I used to eat on a regular basis. But…crunchy things are fun to eat. The noise is satisfying…maybe that’s it. Anyway, giving up chips has been hard for me. When I do allow myself a “cheat” or “treat,” odds are good that it will involve something crisp, crunchy, and salty.
But, argh – I don’t always want to wait for a cheat to get my crispy jones taken care of. Kale chips to the rescue! You can buy kale chips in the store these days, but the ones I’ve tried are, to me, over-seasoned. It doesn’t need to be so hard. Kale chips are simple and delicious and – yay! – crunchy!
Oh, and they’re really easy to make. Here’s the deal:
Kale – washed and dried. Make sure they are really, really dry.
Olive oil – rub the kale leaves to cover them
Spread them on a baking sheet; bake in a 350 degree oven. When they are crisp to the touch but still green, they are done. (I’d say 7-10 minutes) Don’t let them turn brown; then they are bitter.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with salt.
Yep, that’s it! You can vary it by seasoning your salt – garlic and paprika are good options – but play around with it if you want to.
