Tip of the week!


This is a superstar of green foods!  In 1 cup there is only 36 calories, zero fat and 20% RDA of dietary fiber which promotes regular digestion.  This makes it great for kids with tummy troubles and recurrent constipation ( Ahem).

Kale is loaded with Vitamins such as A, C including a megadose of K which regulates the dody's inflammatory process; great for those with arthritis, asthma and autoimmune disorders.

Antioxidants such as carotenoids and flavanoids help to protect our cell from free radicals.  Kaempferol in particular fight against formation of cancer cells.  There are also 45 other antioxidants found in the Kale!

Kale helps to prevent, even combat cancer; such as prostate, ovarian, bladder, colon, breast and gastric just to name a few.

This is one fantastic food!

A fun, easy and healthy way to feed kale to your family is in the for of chips!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Chop 1 bunch of Kale into 2" size pieces.
Lay out leaves onto large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Drizzle with 1tbsp of olive oil
Back for 18-20 minutes.  Keep an eye on them during the last few minutes to make sure the leaves don't burn.

How easy is that!?  Absolutely delicious. 


  1. Yummy! Love kale chips but my last batch came out a little...soggy? I think I need to let them dry out more. So healthy and good, great tips Mama!

  2. I bake mine for about 18-20 minutes. Watch them for the last 2 minutes or so, so they don't burn. Also, try drizzling them with just 1 tablespoon of oil, maybe too much makes them soggy? I've noticed too if left out over night, they do get soggy. In that case, just put them back in the oven for about 10 minutes or so.
    So yummy. Made a batch today for all the kids outside playing. Such a quick, healthy snack! Hope you had a good weekend my friend!
