At the heart of the kale craze is a salty snack called kale chips. They are, quite simply, fantastic. Crisp, light and pleasantly salty, they’re the perfect treat for a junk-food fanatic. One bite and all skepticism is blown away! Before you know it, you too will down a whole bowl.
And, the thing is, that's totally fine. Kale chips have half the total fat of their potato counterparts. The more kale chips you crunch on, the more cancer-fighting antioxidants you feed your body, the more vitamin A you flood your system with (promoting eye health and great skin), the more heart-healthy fiber you load up on. How many snack foods can boast that?
