many thanks to xell, my colon hydrotherapist, for her wonderful suggestions and basic recipe for kale chips. i hate kale, and can only tolerate it in small amounts if marinated and in a salad. i was very hesitant to try this idea but xell (pronounced "chell") said they're out of this world. too true. they taste like popcorn and are so crunchy, i can eat a whole head of kale while stuck in traffic. my 2-year-old niece and my own 18-month-old love their 'crunchy salad' and we have to make sure to tear it up a little or else they stuff their faces. one day i'll get a picture of the two of them, with the green powder residue all over their faces. reminiscent of childhood cheetos overdosing... long live green chips!!
