Celebrate National Chip and Dip Day! by Victoria Phillips in Healthy Recipes, March 23, 2012
America’s favorite snack duo has its own holiday, and that day is today. Crunchy chips and creamy dip can be part of a healthy eating plan, but not all chips are created equal. Skip the store-bought stuff full preservatives and lots of sodium by making your own at home.
At only 60 calories per 2 cup serving, Ellie’s Smoky Kale Chips from Food Network Magazine take nothing more than kale, paprika, salt, olive oil and an oven. Pop the kale in for 15 minutes and this leafy green vegetable transforms into a crisp chip. Make sure to only cook until the edges are slightly brown — any longer and the chips take on a bitter taste.
