Kale chips are always a fun and easy-to-make chip alternative for any time of year.
Kale is just plain good for everything. It is an incredibly amazing source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and especially vitamin K. It contains 1327.6% of your daily value intake of vitamin K. Vitamin K and vitamin A both protect your body from developing cancers. Vitamin K is also widely known to help with bone health, blood clotting prevention, and antioxidant activity.
The nutritional yeast helps give these kale chips their cheesy flavor. The chips are 100% vegan and the nutritional yeast gives you essential vitamin B12, which some vegans can lack.
Nutritional yeast is also a good source of protein, fiber, and folic acid, which is important for cell maintenance and production.
Kale chips are perfect for parties or for when you have a chip craving. The turmeric powder helps give them a curry flavor; however, free feel to add some curry as well for more taste and flavor.
I enjoy this healthy recipe whenever I want a tasty snack and a nutrient-rich punch of amazing. Make this healthy recipe, and you’ll thank me later.
