Kale Chips to the Rescue…

6 Mar

Oh man, I have a gnarly sugar detox headache today.  I had it yesterday, too, but I feel worse today.  Maybe I’m also tired from a busy workday yesterday (wearing many hats) …but it could just be general (oh yeah, that, too) hormonal, detox bitchiness.

Needless to say I’m CRAVING something crunchy and salty.  I already had a morning snack of TJ’s Savory Thin crackers, of which you get, like, a billion for 130 calories, along with a bit of gruyere.  Not enough, apparently.  (I suspect part of the problem is I want to eat something of a large quantity.  The cracker serving isn’t REALLY a billion, more like 35ish.)

So, my next weapon is home made kale chips.  A huge bunch of curly kale baked/roasted at 400 with cooking spray, salt, a bit of some other kind of seasoning and a sprinkling of fresh parm.  The beauty is, I can eat the whole panful and it’s good for me and not many calories.

Hopefully, this will help.  If not, the next piece from my arsenal is…a nap!

Fortunately, this feeling (at least the headache part) won’t last much longer…maybe through tomorrow, but should be better by Friday.  Just need to wait it out…

    Love those kale chips! Hadn’t thought of parmesan–good idea. Happy detox, baby!

    Don’t you feel like Popeye (in a good way) after eating kale? Crispy is the best.
