Kale Chips with Nutritional Yeast

Kale Chips with Nutritional Yeast

Who said living a busy lifestyle means we have to put our health on hold and eat packaged, processed food for convenience.

As i do not have a dehydrator, I pre-heated the oven to 160 C /325 F. I scattered 100g of kale leaves on a baking tray with baking paper. I tossed it with a juice of one lemon, then drizzles it with 1/2 tablespoon of organic extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil, added some sea salt and mixed herbs. Then scattered 2 tablespoons on Nutritional Yeast Flakes on top. I then placed in oven for 15 minutes then lowered the temperature to 110 C/ 225 F and let it cook for another 20 minutes.
And the final piece is just so satisfying. The whole recipe is about 150 calories with 4g carbs, 3g of protein, and 10g of fat. This unprocessed snack will have so much more advantages then a packet of Doritos.
Kale’s health benefits are primarily linked to the high concentration and excellent source of antioxidant vitamins A, C, and K — and sulphur-containing phytonutrients. Super-rich in vitamin K, eating a diet rich in the powerful antioxidant vitamin K can reduce the overall risk of developing or dying from cancer.
Nutritional yeast is naturally low in sodium, making it a perfect addition for those monitoring their sodium intake.
Lemons are rich in vitamin C and flavonoids that work against infections like the flu and colds
In India, Ayurveda medicine values the lemon as a fruit and for its properties. It is sour, warm, promoter of gastric fire, light, good for vision, pungent and astringent.
