My Latest Obsession

Hi lovelies! I hope that you are all having a fabulous week so far! I’m so happy that it’s Thursday and the weekend is in sight! I have some fun weekend plans that I’m looking forward to including seeing Jersey Boys with some lovely DGs, a fun brunch on Saturday and lunch and crafting on Sunday! It should be a great weekend and like always, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I feel well! I’ve been meaning to do a foodie finds post lately, but each time I go to write one, I realize that I can’t do my list without including X or Y. But today I’m leaving all that behind because I’m only going to talk to you about one thing. But it’s my very favorite thing. So here’s my confession:

I’m a kale chip addict.

I used to make kale chips years ago before they were popular and they never really turned out right. They ended up burnt, slightly slimy and way too salty. For years, I didn’t touch another kale chip due to my preconceived notions that they would all taste that way. That was until last year, and I noticed kale chips in all my favorite grocery stores and I decided to give them a try. Oh my goodness, I had been missing out. These kale chips are light, crispy and crunchy with the most amazing flavor. And they are seriously addicting. Given that they come in resealable bags, I’m guessing that the companies expect you to eat them on multiple occasions. But not me. That bag is gone in one sitting. I’ve tried a bunch of different kinds, but my favorites are Kale Joy and Kale Krunch.

Don't even try and pry my hand away

Both of these products are completely natural, gluten-free and vegan making them a fantastic healthy snack. Plus the coating on both brands contains nuts or seeds, which give them an added protein punch- Kale Joy Original has 6 g of protein per serving! I’m partial to the original flavors of both of them but I’m sure the others are fantastic too. Unfortunately, they aren’t cheap ($6 a bag) but they are worth every penny! At some point I might try my hand at making my own kale chips again, but in the meantime, I’ll be the girl hoarding bags of kale chips at the grocery store.

Questions:

-Have you tried kale chips?

-What would be your favorite flavor combo?

  1. my mom and i were just talking about kale chips today because i really want to start making my own! I don’t want to risk paying $$ for some I may not like, and instead just make some with olive oil and sea salt! Those sound super yummy though!!

  2. Oh gosh, I’ve had SO many kale chip failures, too! Mine are always either too soggy or too burnt to truly enjoy. Until I muster up the courage to try making them at home again (or until I have enough money to invest in a dehydrator), I’ll keep treating myself to store-bought kale chips like these from time to time. Kale Joy is awesome, and I also really like Brad’s Kale Chips (but they’re even more expensive!).

    I hope you had tons of fun at Jersey Boys this weekend! I’t’s one of my favorite Broadway shows!

    Hugs! ❤ xoxo

    p.s. I'll be sending you an email this week!
