Packed with nutrients, kale is one of our favorite greens to snack on. Combining kale with a low-fat source of dairy provides the added benefit of protein, calcium and vitamin D. This recipe is a twist on a traditional snack but has all of the healthy nutrients needed to keep your day going.
Added bonus other than deliciousness? Kale is high in fiber, vitamins like A and C. Plus, consuming kale regularly can help lower your cholesterol and help keep your liver healthy with its detoxification properties. In fact, kale is one of the very few foods that can actually help the liver in both phases of its two-step detoxification process! What are you waiting for? It’s time to indulge in this snack!
- ¼ cup Kale Chips (we used “Brad’s Raw Crunchy Kale – Naked (with sunflower seeds, cashews and plain vegan cheese) – it’s organic, vegan, kosher and gluten free!)
- ½ cup Ricotta cheese, low-fat
Simply scoop the ricotta into a small bowl. Sprinkle the kale chips on top! Enjoy!
