The Monkey Eats Kale

Do your kids eat vegetables, in particular, anything green?  Well, my little Monkey does not, or I should say, did not.  Not until he was introduced by my good friend M to kale chips.  My friend has an amazing garden and an amazing amount of greens.  One day awhile back while the Monkey and I were visiting her we discussed kale chips and decided to try it.  Well, she did all the work and we scarfed it all up.  I was so happy my Monkey was eating something green and I'm sure his little body was too.  I do not have an amazing garden.  I am just happy to see a few peas and carrots popping up, the rest is weeds :(.  So I buy my greens.  I bought a bag of baby kale at Costco to use in my smoothies the other day and then remembered the kale chips and decided to experiment. easy!  So good!  If you remember I'm a recovering chip-aholic so these healthy chips definitely fulfilled my craving for oil and salt.  So the moral of the story is if you like chips, but are trying to be healthier, try making these and maybe your non-vegetable eating child will like them too.
