In the spirit of getting more dark leafies into the children, I took a chance on this kale chips recipe from one of my favorite mom bloggers, Ali at Cleaner Plate Club. I heart this blog so much. Great information, yummy recipes, seriously funny, and haiku to boot.
So, I’ve been tiring of spinach, our ‘go-to’ dark leafy veggie. The children aren’t tired of it so much. But that’s because they barely know they are eating it. Call it sneaky. Call it deceptive. I don’t exactly hide the stuff, but it sure goes down easier while deftly tucked into their burgers, meatballs, scrambled eggs (a la Dr. Seuss), and of course, all sauces and soups. So, it’s just me, the mama chef, who tires of the same old, same old. Probably too much Food Network, I suspect. However, I also keep reading about the nutritive wonders of kale. If it really is one of the world’s healthiest foods, it’s worth a bit of experimentation, no?
And here are the happy children. LOVING this stuff.
