Perfectly Baked Kale Chips

I feel like there are still some negative preconceived notions when it comes to good ol’ kale.  I do enjoy when people speak of this leafy vegetable in a way that you would believe it has super mysterious powers.   Kale is, however, not so mysterious. Kale is not only delicious, it is dense with nutrients such as calcium and vitamin K, it is affordable and also very easy to cook.  I, for one, do love to eat kale in various ways, but baked kale chips are definitely my favorite. My recipe is my favorite way of preparing the chips, but feel free to spice up your kale chips however you would like. Enjoy!
