Recipe: Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips (Via Tasty Yummies.com)

Kale’s popularity has soared over the past half decade.  Health-conscious eaters and home cooks alike have embraced the versatility of this vitamin-packed member of the cabbage family.  High in vitamins A and K and beta carotene, kale has appeared in recipes for smoothies, salads, and sides.

One of our favorite preparations for kale is “Kale Chips.”  Check out this recipe from Beth at Tasty-Yummies.com for Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips.

Summer is winding down, the days are getting shorter, the nights longer. This time of year I always find myself antsy for those end-of-summer road trips, hitting the open road and exploring. For those that have kids, I can imagine that travel urge is even stronger, these are the moments to escape, one last time before school is in-session and life gets back to the hustle and grind of the day-to-day.

I partnered together with Albertson’s to create a series of healthy summer road-trip recipes. This series of recipes is a great way to keep on-track with your mindful eating while you are away from the comforts of the kitchen. I created 5 delicious, gluten-free recipes that will let you enjoy convenient and tasty treats that satiate those snacking urges we all have while out traveling.

I don’t know about you, but for me the car is one of my favorite places to snack. It could be boredom, it could be all part of the letting-go into vacation experience, but I know it’s always important I come prepared for these urges. It would be so easy to stop at a gas station grab a bag of chips or cheese doodles, maybe a sugary drink and a sweet treat for later. But, mostly this would just end up in a car full of crumbs, a belly full of gas and a heart full of regret.

These Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips are the perfect savory treat for a road trip. They quench those snacking urges for savory, salty and crunchy, all in one easy-to-pack snack. Kids and adults alike love them and you can rest easy that you aren’t consuming a entire day’s worth of calories and fat in one tiny bag of chips. Of course it doesn’t hurt  The vinegar flavor is subtle, but so classic and satisfying. Of course the salty is the best part and the crunch from kale chips will convert even the most hard core of potato chip eaters to at least entertain the idea.
