Spicy “Cheddar” Kale Chips- Phase 1

Try our protein-rich Spicy “Cheddar” Kale Chips!

Among the most nutrient dense of all plant foods are the dark green, leafy vegetables, especially kale, dandelion, spinach, chard, collards, arugula, parsley, and green cabbage. These vegetables are high in alkaline minerals, protein, and chlorophyll. They contain no cholesterol and no unhealthy saturated or trans fats. As such, they are regenerative, purifying, and highly potentcy foods – as stated by Dr. Gabriel Cousens in “There Is a Cure for Diabetes – Revised Edition”. Kale, in particular, is especially rich in protein – with an astonishing 4.3 grams of protein per 100 grams. It is rich in vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin E , as well as being high in fiber, flavonoids and antioxidants. Nuts and seeds have roughly 20–30% protein and are a natural part of the Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine and the Phase 1.0 Healing Diet.

Remove the stems from the kale and cut into small pieces. Let the kale air out as much as possible before coating. Mix all ingredients (except kale) together in a food processor. In a large bowl, massage the mixture into the kale. Place the kale on dehydrator trays and dehydrate at 118 degrees overnight or until coating is dry. (if using a conventional oven to dehydrate, please set oven at lowest temperature setting, place kale on baking trays lined with parchment paper, place trays in oven, keep door slightly open, check after 3.5 hours. Add time until the coating is dry. Conventional ovens dehydrate more quickly so often the dehydration time is cut in half. Use the base time as you can always add additional time.)

Note: The stems can be used in smoothies as an extra added boost of green vegetables
