Poor little lettucehead

OMG, I can't believe I forogt to mention last night's kale chips!  Copley and I LOVED these and now I know what to do with my weekly kale from my veggie pick-up!  It's so easy and so tasty.  Basically it is just a way to get salt into my mouth without eating it with a spoon.  Copley is my little vegetarian (by his choice, not mine) hunting dog.  This dog loves carrots, apples, green beans, cauliflower, brocolli and kale.  The side effects from eating a whole head of kale?  C got up at 4am badly needing to go #2 and I well, let's just say it was very sobering moment when I lifted the blankets to let him out.  They were right about your system clearing out with all the fiber.

Anyways, last night I baked these up and yum!!  Add enough salt to anything and yum!

Kale Chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step One:  Cut kale into chip size pieces.  I cut off the stems and then cut the remaining leaf into 2 pieces.
Step Two:  Rinse and pat dry or use salad spinner.
Step Three:  Spray kale with olive oil and sprinkle on kosher salt.
Step Four:  Bake for 10 minutes or until crispy.  
Step Five:  Eat and light a candle :)

I strongly recommend buying an olive oil mister.  I have one from "Beyond the Olive" in Old Pasadena but I think you can grab one called Misto at most stores that sell kitchen tools.  Before I had this, when I "sprinkled" OO on my food, it ended up plopping a big pile on one portion and barely getting on the other pieces.

Here is my processed carb diet today.  I was at a conference and everywhere I looked, animal!!  I am trying to stay away from being vegan by just eating processed carbs but it's hard when at a conference.  Tomorrow I will try to get to stand before salads disappear. 

  • Breakfast:
    • Luna bar - Smores
      • I read ingredients 3 times and no dairy or egg
      • Taste:  a little dry but still yummy
  • Lunch:
    • Big baked pretzel with mustard
      • I Googled it and they say vegan as long as no butter on top
      • Taste:  Yum!
  • Dinner:
    • Tortilla chips and salsa
I am going to write about The Kind Diet, the book I am following and some other topics why on this challenge in upcoming posts.
