Need a little help eating your greens? Dark, leafy green vegetables (such as kale, collard greens, spinach, chard, etc) are an amazing source of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. But, we don’t always get enough of these leafy greens because many people don’t know how to cook them or they simply don’t like the flavor or texture.

I was curious about all of the kale chips for sale, but some of them are rather pricey. I couldn’t find flat kale at the store, so I decided to try collard greens instead. I actually enjoy eating these and found this to be a good way to add more greens into my diet!

Try changing up the spices to customize the flavors! If you are short on time, try using the pre-washed and pre-cut bags of collard greens at the supermarket.

Some recipes are a little bit different with cooking temperature/times. You can cook these at a lower temperature for a longer amount of time to get a more even crisp. But, I am a bit on the impatient side sometimes ๐Ÿ™‚
