Crispy Kale Chips - A Healthy Recipe | Kale is high in iron, vitamins and fiber. Enjoy these crunchy chips as a weight loss snack! - BeLiteWeight

Kale is in the same family as broccoli, cauliflower, collard greens and brussel sprouts. It is packed full of fiber, antioxidants and has a anti-inflammatory benefit also. It is low in calories at only 36 calories per 1 cup serving. Kale is rich in iron and other vitamins/minerals making it a good healthy eating choice.

Kale can be prepared by steaming like broccoli or cauliflower. If you bake or dehydrate the Kale with seasonings, it takes on a crispy consistency like potato chips and makes a great weight loss snack.

Here's one of our favorite Crispy Kale Chip recipes but just let this be your guide – customize the seasonings to what YOU like best!


2 heads kale, washed and thoroughly dried
2 tablespoons olive oil
dill, sea salt and pepper, for sprinkling to your taste preference


Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.

Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Lay on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil, dill, sea salt and pepper. Spread into a single layer. Bake until crispy but still green, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes. Serve as a healthy snack or finger food.
