Have a Great Weekend! 25 Day Challenge Starts Monday!

Trappy's Kale Chips will be a great recipe to use on Monday as we launch the 25 Day Paleo challenge. Enjoy today and tomorrow. I'll be having a farewell party to my 2 friends Yeungling and Miller Lite tonight. I'll be hanging out with their much smarter but less hotter sister..H2O for the next 25 days.

Go to front door of Krogers, hang a left, follow the produce aisle, same place as the lettuce and spinach
Kale? WTF? Southern Ohio isn't known as a hotbed for kale consumption. But you can grab the stuff at Krogers..and once the 25 day challenge comes rolling around this Monday. This will be my "go to" leafy green vegetable. Why? Click HERE...but here's a snippet:

"One cup of kale contains 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber, and 15% of the daily requirement of calcium and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), 40% of magnesium, 180% of vitamin A, 200% of vitamin C, and 1,020% of vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus.

Kale’s health benefits are primarily linked to the high concentration and excellent source of antioxidant vitamins A, C, and K -- and sulphur-containing phytonutrients.

Carotenoids and flavonoids are the specific types of antioxidants associated with many of the anti-cancer health benefits. Kale is also rich in the eye-health promoting lutein and zeaxanthin compounds.

Beyond antioxidants, the fiber content of cruciferous kale binds bile acids and helps lower blood cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease, especially when kale is cooked instead of raw."

So to make some delicious kale chips here's what you do!

Cut kale into chip size pieces and stuff them into ziplock freezer bag.

Pour about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of olive oil into bag and seal.

Shake the bag like you're birddogging it so the kale in completely coated with oil.
Spread the kale on a baking sheet. I prefer a baking sheet with little holes used for baking pizza. It makes the kale crispier.
Sprinkle with sea salt, pepper and garlic powder. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. These kale chips are the perfect accompaniment for a big, juicy steak or whatever big hunking piece of meat you prefer. Has anyone ever had bear meat? I'm serious..#1 if you have you're a badass, #2 I want some...
rumor has it the Psycho Cindi kills and eats nothing but raw bearmeat
Have a great weekend. Enjoy it, these next couple weeks will be great as all will make amazing progress with the Paleo Diet and compete in the Crossfit Open! See you guys on Monday. Don't forget to take your measurements, photo, and record your workout time on Monday!
