BBQ Kale Chips: My New Fav Snack

These BBQ kale chips came about when I realized I really should be eating more leafy greens. Taking the time to wash kale, bake it, and waiting for it to cool seems like a hassle compared to just grabbing a bag of chips or popping popcorn. That’s why I decided to make a ton of kale in advance and bag it up! Now it’s available for days. I could just buy kale chips at the store, but it’s usually loaded with extra fat, preservatives and salt. This kale has: kale, olive oil and homemade bbq seasoning. If you like BBQ chips, you’ll love this healthy substitute!
