My one and only New Year’s resolution this year was to eat more kale, and for good reason. Crammed with fiber, vitamin A, and calcium, kale is such a nutritional powerhouse it should have been Popeye’s snack of choice instead of spinach. But I was having a tough time finding a way to prepare it that I actually enjoyed, until I stumbled on this recipe for raw, vegan, cheesy kale chips that fitness trainer Nathane Jackson of www.nathanejackson.com posted on his Facebook page. With Jackson’s kind permission, I’m reprinting his mega yum, super easy recipe here. Crunch away! And if you’ve got your own winning way to cook up kale, post it in the comments!
