Guilt Free Snack: Kale Chips

Kale has gained a lot of popularity in the last year or so, commonly being touted as a "superfood" for it's great nutritional benefits. This low calorie leafy vegetable is packed with Vitamin K and also Vitamin, C, Vitamin A, Magnesium, Vitamin B6 and Calcium.

While it's more bitter for me personally than the other leafy greens, I have definitely gotten used to the taste since incorporating it into my diet. I sometimes replace lettuce mixes with kale these days. I also enjoy it in fresh pressed juices (kale-pineapple-mango is a delicious combination).

This weekend, I decided to make kale chips. Kale chips are SO easy to make and require very minimal ingredients:

What I Have Been Up To Lately {Instagram Photos}

Spring has officially arrived. The weather has been warming up the last few weeks, and I am loving it! I cannot wait to start going to the pool, and going on more hiking adventures.

Until then, this is a little peak of what we have been up to the last few weeks:
  • Easter brunch with friends and Swedish Easter Coke from Ikea!
  • Lately, when we are out and about, we pick a few flowers and keep them in a vase to brighten up the home
  • With summer around the corner, I have been working out more and trying to eat healthier!
  • We've gone to a couple NBA games, and have been following the NCAA games as well. Too bad I picked the losers in my March Madness bracket! Oops.
  • Date nights with my husband - we go out every Friday these days to celebrate and kick off the weekends.
Life is sweet, spring is here, and I am optimistic for what summer holds around the corner.
