Recently on More Good Day Oregon, I whipped up a batch of Nacho Cheese Kale Chips. If you’re new to kale chips — or you’ve only had store-bought — you’re in for a major treat!
The Inspiration Behind Nacho Cheese Kale Chips
So why kale chips?
Hasn’t there been enough hype about kale in recent years?
Are you so over it?
Well, I might be inclined to agree. I get tired of food trends like anyone else.
But kale chips are different.
For one thing, they’re delicious and crispy, and they have that same melt-in-your-mouth quality that seaweed snacks do.
Kale chips are also full of nutrients.
For starters: kale. There’s a reason there’s so much buzz around kale!
Here’s why: kale, like other cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, may:
- Boost mood
- Lower cholesterol
- Prevent DNA damage
- Improve immune function
- Prevent cancer (like breast and kidney cancer)
- Increase cancer survival rates
- Reduce the risk of chronic age-related diseases
