Why waste empty calories on over-salted, unoriginal potato chips, when you can get all the health benefits of kale plus a truly satisfying crunch and taste. These are so easy and even vegetable-haters (cough, my boyfriend) have been clinically proven to love these.

P.S. This is in no way meant to slight potato chips... because I really, really love potato chips. It's because of that fact that I need to sometimes rely on a healthier alternative.

P.P.S. Any spices you want can be used here- I just love lemon and it works so well with the crispy kale. —totalnoms
