Whenever I find myself in the mood for a snack these days, which is always, my goal is to make better, healthier choices. And thank goodness for these amazing spicy parmesan kale chips! They perfectly fit my requirements — full of vitamins and nutrients while also being crunchy and salty, which is how I prefer my snacks. I still have to be mindful though, because I will eat an entire batch if I don’t pay attention. 😀
Because I am both a mindless and emotional eater, I am careful about the snacks I keep in the house. That’s right, I keep snacks readily available because a hungry Tanya will march to the candy machine in her apartment complex and get a Snickers bar. Or Starbursts. Or Oreos. Oreos, oh how I love them.
Good For You and Easy to Make Snacks
Thus, I’ve learned to keep a few healthy snacks on hand, like yogurt and pickles. No, I don’t eat them together but ready-made snacks save me during those times where I lack the time to make something from scratch. Sometimes, when I feel ambitious, I whip up a batch of homemade hummus, but I prefer hummus with pita bread versus vegetables so I am forced to limit my hummus intake because my willpower is low. 🙁
These Spicy Parmesan Kale Chips only take just a few minutes to make and offer a satisfying, salty crunch, so I really can’t boo-hoo too loudly. The cayenne also adds some bite, which helps me eat in moderation. As you may recall, I am a bit of spice wimp and there is enough heat to help limit my intake. If you’re looking for a snack, I definitely recommend these as a tasty and healthy alternative to potato chips. You can make a big batch and enjoy them all week long!
