Healthy Bodies & Snacks: Kale Chips!

by Nicole on February 10, 2012

Happy Friday, Happy Friday! Yes, I’m singing a little song.  Today I’m trying to mix some work with some play and I’m pretty excited about it. Before I get on with my post, I want to say I LOVED reading all your comments yesterday. You SHOULD be proud of yourselves! If you didn’t leave a comment yet, show yourself some LOVE and share it!

Yesterday I had some fun hangin’ with Jill Hanner and making some delicious recipes. Here’s a hint of what’s to come in our Valentine’s Day series!

I’m so happy to have met so many wonderful people in real life and virtually through FitFluential. I feel so lucky for all of their support AND even LUCKIER I can hang out with Jill in real life since we live so close!

Stay tuned for our V-day series that will hopefully be posted soon!

In the mean time I get some requests to do recipe vlogs so you can actually see what I’m doing/how to make a particular recipe, instead of just reading them. I know some of you love the vids and some of you possibly don’t care for them…and that’s ok! That’s why I write out the recipes below so you can still read it. Especially if you’re blog readin’ at work!

I love mostly all greens, but kale is certainly at the top of my list!

Kale is detoxifying, antioxidant rich, cancer fighting, can lower cholesterol and is SUPER high in vitamins K, A, and C! It also is filled with fiber, low in calories, is anti-inflammatory and provides cardiovascular support! Read more about the benefits of kale here!

These are perfect for a snack or side dish! And low in calories too, especially when you use an oil mister! I love my Prepara glass spray bottle, which I bought from Bed, Bath & Beyond, but you can get it from amazon if you’d like too! The only down side is that it has to be pretty full to work. So don’t let it get low!

I’m off to get a workout in and get a manicure among other work things! Gotta get the rest of the Valentine’s Day special Pure Bliss Eats’ orders out!

Have you tried kale chips? What are you doing this weekend?

Childish weekend here

Love Kale chips! Just found some kale in my fridge that had gone missing and had to throw it out. I was so sad ’cause I really would have liked some chips.
