Sugar Detox Day 12: Homemade Garlic Kale Chips

It’s easier to avoid eating sugar if you have something to snack on. So why not make something simple to replace your sugar cravings with? Kale chips are a great healthy snack with very few ingredients:

1 bunch of kale
1 tablespoon of olive oil, more if needed
Sea salt to taste
Garlic powder to taste (I like to load mine up)Garlic kale chips

Wash the kale well first and pat dry. A towel works much better for this than a paper towel because kale really holds onto the water. Cut out the center stem completely – it’s very tough. Tear the leaves into equal-sized pieces, or use kitchen shears/scissors for more control. Toss the pieces in the oil first, making sure they’re lightly coated. Then sprinkle the salt and garlic powder and toss again. When you put the kale on the baking tray, make sure the pieces aren’t too close together. No additional oil for the baking tray is needed.

Bake at 350 degrees for between 10-15 minutes, but watch them carefully because they burn quickly. Once they have browned edges, check to make sure they’re crisp or starting to crisp and take them out.

Store in a sealed plastic bag for up to five days. They won’t last that long, though!

Let me know in the comments how you like them or if you use different seasonings.

Keep on living the wheat free life!
