Sage and Onion Kale Chips


2013/01/25 by nikkiledford

Kale is a great green. I mean, truly wonderful.

Let me count the ways:

  • shredded into soup
  • juiced with some celery, beets, carrots, ginger, and lemon
  • blended into a smoothie with coconut and banana (click pic for recipe)

  • sautรฉed into stir-fry, eggs, side dishes
  • massaged with oil into salads.

and finally, a hippie favorite….

  • Baked into chips!

Kale chips are the ultimate rescue for the fat kid in all of us who wants to pound an entire bag of potato chips in an afternoon.ย They are chips, made from leaves. Brilliant!

Dress them up with some spices and herbs and you’re all set to snack your brains out.

Sage and Onion Kale Chips

2 bunches kale, de-stemmed and rinsed clean
2 Tbsp. olive oil (I used truffle olive oil)
1/2 onion, sliced thin
2 tsp powdered sage
1 tsp. rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
sprinkle of red pepper flakes

  1. Make sure your kale is dry and chop into large pieces.
  2. Toss with all the remaining ingredients.
  3. Preheat oven to 350
  4. Line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.
  5. Spread the kale mix into a thin layer on the baking sheet and bake for 10-15 mins.
  6. The chips should be crispy and starting to turn golden (but not brown)
  7. If some are getting done before others, remove those and continue to bake the others until they are finished. Just keep an eye on them after 10 mins of baking.

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week ๐ŸŒถ Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿ‹๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿฅ’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฅ—โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฅ—โ˜€๏ธ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me ๐Ÿ˜ Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
