Kale is a great option in both salads or as a cooked green side dish. The options are limitless, they are even good for making chips.
For those of you not familiar with kale chips – welcome to vegan nirvana. Raw foodists, vegans, health nuts, or those in “the green know” chow down happily on a handful of fresh kale chips as a green, nutritious alternative to conventional potato chips. They are not fried or baked; free from all of the carcinogens, additives and preservatives that plague most shriveled potato chip packets; and most importantly, they are absolutely scrumptious.
