Kale Chips with Sea Salt

These delicious ‘chips’ are a much healthier alternative to potato chips, and an easy way to boost your intake of green leafy vegetables.  Not only are they an excellent source of beta-carotene; a serving of these ‘chips’ contains more than a day’s worth of both vitamin C and K.
