Kale Chips = Ready in 10 Minutes + Superfood Snack+ Prevent Most Diseases!

Is reducing the risk for cancer, heart attack, and stroke as easy as eating a few kale chips every day? According to the books How Not To Die and Whole, eating mostly whole plant foods such as unprocessed fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, and whole grains combined with an hour of exercise, an active low stress lifestyle, and minimizing intake of that which contributes to disease, we can expect to reduce our risk for all of the top 15 causes of death and life lives with less pain and more pleasure!

I eat and live this way today and see that the key to making it work is making practicing this lifestyle easy and fun! What helps is to have lots of snack foods and easy to make fruit and vegetable snacks like kale chips to ensure the full amount of vegetable intake which tends to be the most challenging for me. Today would you join us in reading my newest adventure in making kale chips because most of us struggle to eat vegetables while this post shows an easy way to do it?

We start with a bag of kale which is less than $5 and produces enough for 3 to 4 full trays of kale chips.

Check out the nutrition label!

IMG_0319(1).jpg

To begin, we set the stove to 350 Fahrenheit or about 180 Celsius.

IMG_0317.jpg

Next, rinse the kale leaves and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil or a substitute that will help the chips become crispy in the oven and taste good.

IMG_0306.jpg

I like the Japanese seven spice from Publix for a spicy flavor without salt!

IMG_0309.jpg

Add garlic powder for more flavor!

IMG_0310(1).jpg

Finish it with more garlic and herb without any salt and get ready for my breath!

IMG_0312.jpg

After several failed attempts, I find this airbake tray helps a lot to allow the kale to cook evenly without burning because a thicker pan makes it too easy to burn on the bottom and not be done on the top.

IMG_0308(1).jpg

Dump the kale out of the strainer onto the tray.

IMG_0313.jpg

Invite children to join in on the nutrition and the fun cooking!

IMG_0314.jpg

Slide into the oven.

IMG_0315.jpg

Set a timer for about 7 minutes and make sure cook just to crispy without burning. After a few times making these I now get them right consistently after initially both undercooking and burning.

IMG_0316.PNG

Take them out of the oven when most are crispy and a few are still a little soft to avoid burning. Leave in a minute too long and a bunch may burn.

IMG_0320.jpg

Eat directly off the serving tray immediately for the best experience!

IMG_0321.jpg

Promoting healthy eating with my daughter is fairly easy when she hangs out me making kale chips and eating other fruits and vegetables!

IMG_0323.jpg

Thank you for reading this and I hope if you try the kale chips you enjoy them as much as I do!

Love,
Jerry Banfield

Jerry, I am so glad to see you promoting healthy food. You radiate good health , look at your skin :) MashaAllah.
I will definitely try those kale chips/crisps :)

True. It is so important to eat healthy and it's important to teach it to kids by exposing them to healthy food choices early instead of always giving them junk foods and candy. It really makes a difference in our health and too many people don't get that. Healthy eating can also aid in healing and prevention of diseases.

·
·

  ·  3 months ago

Yes, that is true. All diseases can be cured by eating healthy foods.

We need to get rid of GMOs, artificial food adjectives, artificial chemicals, and artificial chemical based medicines.

We only need pure and healthy food to live healthy and happy lives :)

OMG I LOVE Kale Chips.. Have to tryyour seasoning ideas though.. I tend to stick to some grated Parmesan (or for vegans nutritional yeast provides a similar flavour) We grow bucket loads of the stuff so its the only way we can use what we don't put in salads or give away!

Nice! We make these all the time too and posted a recipe on steem a few months back :) My favorite is seeing my 3 year old polish a bowl in 5 min. Try balsamic, olive oil, salt and Parmesan next time you make a batch. It's insanely good.

·

Yes!

58
  ·  3 months ago

I might try the same on my Big Green Egg. They will crisp up the same, but it should add a hint of smoke.

I can't decide whether the smoky flavour would be a positive or a negative. Only one way to try.

·

Thats amazing! Usually kids dislike vegetables and you have to enter a big war to make them eat it. This sweet girl looks like a health conscious person and it is a good habit :)
I never tried kale chips before, so I will try them out. Thank you for sharing :)

·
54
  ·  3 months ago

Some kids like vegetables and fruits and some maybe not so much. It is mostly a choice some children make but we can try our best to give them fun experiences and memories to help them not associate healthy food with anything too yucky or scary or bad or weird or anything too painful or whatever.

51

Better watch what we eat to avoid seeing the doctor much. Nice read @jerrybanfield :)

Yes! Thank you for showing that kids can enjoy kale chips too! I was over at my buddy Chris' house during the holidays, and was surprised/extremely stoked that his 4 year old was munching on homemade kale chips! I had some as well and they were awesome. Vegan 4 life, keep doing your thing and spreading the plant based way of life!

Kale also contain other nutrients such as riboflavin, thiamin, and vitamin E. It’s also low in calories

Only reading this already makes me hungry. I'm really gonna try this. I love vegetables and I like chips so this seems to beautifully to be true! :)

10 minutes to make, 20 seconds to consume. My only problem with kale chips is that they don't last very long.

Great food, kid, fun, and everything. The secret to health is in simplicity, nature, and common sense. Less ingredients is better, healthier. Spices are good. Japanese things are great.

Looks like you are having some fun family time together with your daughter.
She really looks like she is enjoying kale chips.

It's so important to teach our kids eating healthy.
Thanks for sharing your recipe @jerrybanfield

Wow.. That looks good. I should try it soon.
Thanks for this great share :)
This would work to substitute for potato chips (Looking forward to slim me down) lolx

33

I’ve made multiple different kinds of seasoned kale chips and they are awesome, my family and I make easily over 3lbs of kale weekly in our garden and mostly make kale chips out of them, way healthier then potato chips

39

All hale the kale!!

56

I can’t wait to try this! My daughter and I love kale, and this sounds amazing. Do you think a wire rack would work to help it crisp? I don’t have a pan like you used.

50

You get even more nutrients if you do the exact same thing but replace the oven with a food dehydrator. Props on promoting that healthy living!

I love healthy post like this. I think I'll give this a try. Though a less stressful life style is gonna be hard to pull off for the most of us. Anyway thanks for sharing this wonderful article. Have a nice day.

Jerry! I have been a follower of your channel and now you are in my territory! LOL! I love it. Great to see you cooking. We love kale and yes it is so healthy and good for you. I put it in a lot of soups. Great post.

53
  ·  3 months ago

Kale chips are indeed the real "betcha can't eat just one" chips.

When I make these, they never make it to the bowl. And, it's a great reason to grow this nutrient-rich veg in the garden.

Healthy eating is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give.

Peace.

It's so nice to see people switching to the whole food plant based diet.
I made the switch around 2 years ago and i healed all my digestive problems.
I now have energy to exercise, I'm stronger than ever and i lost around 8kg of weight.
This is the best diet ever, Keep on showing people that a whole food plant based diet is the healthiest diet in the world!

Good Job Jerry!

Jerry, like you, I'm a big fan of kale chips. I'm from California so I think it's a requirement!

I agree about the holey baking sheet. For transfer from the bowl, I put the sheet on top and flip it. I use a bowl since I add a lot more oil than you do.

For oil, they say you're not supposed to cook with olive oil. I ignore that since my daughter prefers it. I've tried a few others and like avocado oil (yeah, Californian) which is a bit sweeter.

Lastly, I pile it higher, cook longer, and toss it halfway so it gives some crispy and some a bit more moist.

Thanks for the recipe! I'll have to try changing up from simply salt, pepper and garlic powder.
