Kale Chips

Kale Chips

Whole30 Approved

I LOVE these. I did not think that I would and have been putting of making them because I knew they were a lot of work. Well, they are worth it! These are the perfect snack that is sure to satisfy that chip craving!

You’ll Need:

  • 1 bunch of kale, stem cut out, and leaves ripped into pieces {2 in. or so because they’ll shrink}
  • Truffle salt
  • olive oil

Method:

Pre-heat oven to 375. In a large bowl, drizzle olive oil over the kale and mix up with hands to be sure all pieces are coated lightly. Cover a large sheet tray with parchment paper and place the kale pieces on the paper, don’t stack them. Season with truffle salt, evenly. Cook in oven for 15 minutes. Take out, make sure the chips are lightly crisped and no longer look wet, then they are done. Put them in a bowl, and repeat until done with the raw kale.

Keep chips in a bowl, covered in plastic wrap, out of refrigerator.

*Depending on your oven, may need to adjust time by a minute or two. I tried 18 minutes and that was too much, 15 was perfect for my oven.

Easter Chowder

Easter Chowder

Potato, Leek, Corn & Ham Chowder

Did someone say Chow-da?!?

 

You’ll Need:

 

  • 1 pound of smoked ham, cut into small cubes
  • 5 stalks of celery, finely chopped
  • 12 small to medium yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 2 leeks, cleaned and thinly sliced
  • 3 cans of corn, drained
  • 8-10 cups homemade vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method:

Heat a large stock pot and brown the ham, stirring constantly so that it doesn’t burn, 7-10 minutes. Remove from pot and set aside.

Deglaze the pot with stock, add in the onion and leeks, cook for 10 minutes. Add the celery and potatoes, stir and deglaze the pot with stock as needed to get all the flavorful juices off of the bottom. Cook for about 10-15 minutes, stirring regularly, then add the stock {enough to cover the ingredients} and the corn. Add the smoked ham, bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer, cover, and cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

*Remember the ham is salty so may not need to add any additional.

Fresh Fruit Cubes

Moxie’s Fresh Fruit Juice Cubes

{Whole30 Approved}

This is for those hot afternoons and evenings when all of my friends are sipping on Sauvignon Blanc and Rose’s or cool craft beers, I sip on this. Fill a glass with regular ice cubes, add one fresh fruit cube, and fill with mandarin orange bubble water. This is the perfect refreshing mock-tail! This is great for entertaining too, dinner party guests love these kinds of refreshing drinks!
You can be healthy and still enjoy delicious refreshing beverages without the booze!

 

Kid Tested 🙂 Mother & Whole30 Approved! 

These are also great for kids- my son LOVES these, he could eat them without any bubble water! In fact, he likes to take one in his water bottle with him to baseball.

 

You’ll Need:

  • 4 Grapefruit, cut into quarters
  • 2 Oranges, cut into quarters
  • 1 ½ Limes, cut in half
  • 2 packages of fresh blackberries

 

Method:

Squeeze the juice out of each of the citrus’ {with a hand held juice press} into a container. Put all of the blackberries into vitamix along with the citrus juice and blend until smooth. Take another container along with a chinois on top of it and pour the liquid into the chinois. Use a spoon to help get the juice through the chinois around the seeds. Repeat until all of the liquid is filtered. Dispose of the seeds after each pour through the chinois so it will be easier to filter the liquid through.

Take the finished liquid and stir it, pour into ice trays, stirring in between to blend the juice together as needed. Freeze the cubes for at least 5 hours, or until firm. It’s all juice so the cubes will not pop out like normal ice cubes do, use a knife to help them out. I take all of my juice cubes out and place in a freezer bag for convenience.

If putting in a freezer bag then leave the cubes in the ice trays overnight to ensure they are frozen all the way through.

Makes 3 ice cube trays full.
