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.

Health & Harmony

Health is not just about food and exercise, it’s about feeling good, having satisfied & fulfilling relationships, and keeping our lives clutter free. In preparation for the new year I decided that it was a good of time as ever to clean out my cupboards, wash all of my linens, reorganize, and iron them. What’s the point in having beautiful linens if you cannot use them? Now I am ready for entertaining and taking pretty pictures.

Another great thing about cleaning up clutter is that there are so many people in need right now and it’s freezing outside. Many people and families could use the clothing that we don’t even see, care about, fit into, or remember we have. So I went through my closet and boxed up three BIG boxes for goodwill. Find a Goodwill near you.

An important part about life change is to change all aspects; seeing the clothes that you are SO close to fitting into and helping others by donating is a good step. Feeling good about oneself while we are on a journey to make ourselves better will only help strengthen us along the way and keep us motivated.

So go ahead, go pour yourself a La Croix and fill up some boxes!

Here’s to your health & harmony!

Whole30 Almond Milk

I didn’t realize that I missed milk at all because I don’t really drink it much but making almond milk is kind of fun and it tastes great. It’s pretty simple, though it does take time and some effort.

I used 4 cups of raw almonds, soaked in water over night, then rinsed.

Blend 8 cups of water and the 4 cups of soaked, raw almonds in the vitamix {or break it up if it all will not fit at once because it will get chalky at first}. Blend until smooth. Take either a cheese cloth or a chinois and put the liquid into it, inside of a larger dish and let it strain. You can leave it over night to strain if it’s in a dish and is supported, or use a ladle and plunge the almond pulp in the chinois until none of the liquid is left {takes about 20 minutes}.

With these amounts, I ended up with 2 quarts of almond milk and 2 quarts of almond pulp. The pulp can be used in smoothies {yes, not whole30 approved but it’s healthy fat…} or added into a dip like pepper dip or an almond hummus.
