Kale chips rock!

I actually called my mom after making these crispy greens to say "Look mom, I ate kale!" You see, growing up I was reluctant to eat a lot of greens other than the usual lettuce, string beans, peas, etc. Mom was a great nutritionist and always made very healthy dinners for my brothers and me-even while working a full time job. Sure, she snuck kale or spinach or broccoli into soups and casseroles, but really I didn't actually appreciate those green veggies on their own merit until I was older—like around 50 or so. KIDDING! Late 20s, max. Thanks mom!

Trim out the thick center stem of kale leaves and cut remaining leaf into bite sized pieces. Coat with olive oil and sprinkle a dash of garlic powder and salt and pepper. Place leaves on a baking sheet in a 350° oven for 10-15 minutes, then remove and add a squeeze of lemon juice.
