But not just any ol’ kale chips, today, we are kicking things up a notch by adding in a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. A few days ago, out of nowhere I got this massive, punch in the face,  craving for salt and vinegar chips and while I was out and about hunting down a giant bag of salt and vinegar chips running errands I saw this glorious bunch of kale, that just happened to be on sale, and it hit me . . . salt and vinegar kale chips! Want, need, must have!

And let me just tell you, these salt and vinegar kale chips totally hit the spot!

Did you know –

– Kale is a known anti-inflammatory, which helps to fight against arthritis, asthma and autoimmune disorders.

– Kale is also high in vitamin A which is great for your eyes and skin, it’s also super high in fibre, folate and magnesium!

– Kale is high in iron, and vitamin C which in itself is a powerful combination. Did you know that your body absorbs iron more easily when paired with vitamin C? Well now you do ;)

– Kale is also rich in antioxidants such as carotenoids and flavonoids which are proven to help protect us against various cancers.
