KALE CHIPS AND SWEET PEPPER STRIP that your tots will love.

KALE CHIPS

Kale is included in the cruciferous vegetable family that have a lot of healthful benefits. I do have a toddler that have a strong opinion on foods, so I did a small batch of this just to try if she will like it. To sum up kale's benefits : antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and cancer-preventive benefits. For a complete info you can refer to this link http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=38

Here's the easy and yummy recipe for kale chips.

    1 or 2 big bunches kale, leaves chopped to chip sized pieces
    1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    1 tablespoon oil ( EVOO, would be great)
      salt, to taste
    1-2 tablespoons favorite seasoning blend ( i skipped this for Lucy)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Pour the apple cider vinegar, oil and seasoning onto kale (in a bowl). Mix to coat all pieces.
Bake for 10 minutes or until crispy.
Makes: 3  Cooking Time: 10 minutes


YELLOW PEPPER STRIPS

Aside from its sweet taste, yellow bell peppers are known for its high content of Vitamin C. ( as well as the other bell pepper family). For a complete health benefits you can refer to this link ( just so i need to convince you more) http://healthbenefits-of.org/2010/05/the-health-benefits-of-bell-peppers.html

Sprinkle a lil bit of the Salad supreme on top of the yogurt for dipping. Put a fair amount of yellow pepper in your kids favorite plate. Yummy and healthy

  1. Banks and other vast monetary establishments normally have an advance endorsement process that makes it extremely hard to access cash. They want to loan cash just to those with high FICO scores and once in a while loan unsecured assets that are not upheld by a substantial resource or some type of huge security.Payday Loans San-diego
