Like fashion or hairstyles, foods get accused of being trendy too. Kale, which has virtually become shorthand for healthy eating, is having a long moment in the spotlight. And personally, I hope it’s here to stay.
As a dietitian, I’m thrilled when a super nutritious food suddenly goes from underappreciated to hyper-popular.
In honor of National Nutrition Month, I’m sharing some ultra-easy ways to incorporate more veggies into your every day—with a focus on making veggies more appealing to those who are, shall we say, less enthused (I’m looking at you, finicky spouses and kids).
Because let’s face it: Kale isn’t always an easy sell. It’s got a tough texture and can taste a bit bitter. But it deserves a second chance because it’s also loaded with high levels of immune-strengthening vitamins A and C and is even a decent source of calcium.
So, if you need a fun way to get your people on board, these Cheesy Kale Chips are a perfect starting point. They transform those tough leaves into crispy, flavor-packed snacks that are, in the words of my eight-year-old, totally addictive.
½ bunch kale (about 7 stems)
1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 pinch kosher salt
