What do kale chips have in common with curing Multiple Sclerosis? A lot. It is superfood. I started eating kale chips after Jimmy Moore posted this video on his site. I heard about kale chips before but I thought baked “lettuce” would taste funny. It doesn’t taste funny it tastes AMAZING!
Please take a moment and watch this video first. It will take 17 minutes and 47 seconds. I promise you will not think about food in the same way.
I was in a health food store recently and I asked the sales lady if the store had coconut sugar. She said no and asked me “what’s the benefit?” I was stunned. I just wanted to try to the sugar because when I researched palm sugar for my comparison page it apparently tastes like brown sugar and I felt that would be a better alternative than the Splenda Brown Sugar Blend.
Since then I’ve had the question “what is the benefit?” on my mind for everything I consume. I want the foods I eat to heal my body, add a higher quality of life, be nutrient dense etc.
What foods are you including in your diet for a specific benefit?
Kale Chips and the Cure for MS
- Wash & dry the kale.
- Using your hands or a knife separate the leaf from the stem. The stem does not bake well.
- Rip or cut the leaves into chip sizes.
- Place the kale in a bowl.
- Pour the olive oil over the kale.
- Sprinkle salt over the leaves. Sprinkle according to you preference.
- Place leaves on a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Bake at 300 degrees for 20-30 minutes. *I found the more kale on the baking sheet the longer it takes for the chips to bake.
- After 15 minutes of baking watch the leaves carefully. If they burn they taste bitter.
- When the chips are crispy they are done. If you have some leaves that are still soft just put those back in the oven for a little longer.
- Snack away 😀
I want to leave you with these closing thoughts:
Are you getting benefits from the foods you eat? Could you do more?
