With 2012 behind us, it’s time to get healthy for 2013!  My 2 recommended resolutions for this new year are 1) To eat smarter and 2) To cook more at home!  When you cook at home you always know exactly what’s going into it and can control the amount of fat, salt, etc.  Here is one of my favorite snacks to make at home.

It seems like kale chips are everywhere right now!  They are such a crunchy, yummy snack!  But to buy in the store you are going to spend a lot, so why not make them at home? It’s way fresher and way less expensive! Just watch how easy they are to prepare!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, massage the kale with the olive oil for about 60 seconds.  Stir in the nutritional yeast and salt and pepper if you desire.

Lay the kale leaves on a cookie sheet lined with foil or parchment paper.  Bake for 15 minutes or until crunchy.
