If you have not tried Kale, I recommend you to try them and if you find them locally do pick a bunch and make them as chips ;-) trust me you will love it and you can thank me later. Kale is one of the super foods doing the buzz all over the internet and among healthy eaters. I was waiting to grab hold of these greens and try them at home. So for starters I did these Kale chips and they were gone in 5 minutes I mean the entire batch. My husband had no clue what they were and kept munching them, these kale chips are so crisp and light. With much enthusiasm I tried to add a huge bunch of kale into my green smoothie and I did regret of running through a huge batch. The drink turned up a little not like what I expected and I had to add one banana and pineapple to juice it to a decent smoothie. If you ask me is kale chips the healthiest way of eating kale, I would say 50-50 but it is definitely healthy compared to potato chips. Since Kale is protein dense and vitamin loaded they tend to give a wash out effect to the stomach and you will end up feeling good. Would I eat Kale again of course I will :-)
