Have you ever heard of Kale chips? There is a good chance you have – many people have boasted about this super snack over the years. You may have even heard about it when kale had center stage in a trending food era not so long ago.
If you are sitting there wondering what on earth I’m talking about, I’m going to guess that you don’t know what kale chips are. But that’s okay! Let me give you a quick run-down.
