Personally, I am not a fan of the kale. Really, I’ve tried. But I have yet to find an application where I’ll find this leafy green not just tolerable but yummy…until now.
Actress and mom Ali Landry and her family has been snacking on homemade kale crisps, and they sound pretty darn good. And good for you. Ali needs all the nutrients she can get since she announced this week that she is pregnant with her second child. So how do you make them? Ali shared the recipe via Twitter (because pal and fellow mom Lisa Rinna wanted to make them too!).
Ali first wrote, “Making Kale crisps as a snack for the family tonight. I feel so healthy;) Really, they ARE good!” When Lisa Rinna replied and asked how to make them, the directions were simple: “Kale Crisps– de stem and vein kale, toss with one tablespoon olive oil, add little salt and balsamic vinegar, bake at 375 until crisp. Voila!”
And kale was a good choice for not just Ali Landry, but any pregnant lady. During pregnancy kale will supply the body with important minerals like calcium and iron. Plus it is high in folic acid with is needed for a healthy development of the baby’s nervous system. Plus after the baby is born, kale (as well as other leafy greens) will increase the breastmilk supply.
I don’t know about you, but I’m so gonna try making these!
