I’ve heard about kale chips. I’ve tried them a few times, but never bothered to make them. Seriously, how good can baked greens be?

After seeing kale at the farmer’s market, I was inspired to give them another shot. Now I see what the craze is about. They were unbelievably delicious and satisfy every crispy, crunchy, salty craving you could ever have. I devoured them in one sitting…and I don’t feel a bit guilty about it!

Super simple to make, I foresee many kale chips in my future. The only problem, how can you take them on-the-go? They are so fragile; I don’t know how you would pack them. Any suggestions?
