{whatever wednesday – dehydrated kale chips}

dehydratedkalechips-2

so, i bought a dehydrator... it’s amazing and it’s already changing my life.

i know that may sound drastic, but at this stage in the game – pretty much everything in my life is drastically changing…. so – this is no exception. owning  a dehydrator has totally changed the way i shop, too.  if i have an over-ripe fruit or veggie, but i’m not sure i’ll eat it right away – I CAN DEHYDRATE IT!  if there is a one-day sale on fresh fruit and i want to stock up but it won’t fit in my freezer – I CAN DEHYDRATE IT!  i can make my own fruit-rollups, trailmix, and even dehydrate herbs like sage or rosemary.

my favourite thing to make lately is kale chips.  i wish i would’ve had this thing in the summer – totally could’ve kept the house cooler than making kale chips in the oven!

so simple and healthy.  i didn’t even add any oil.  just rinsed the kale off and sprinkled on a heaping ton of nutritional yeast… so good.

i used one head of kale and it made this whole bowl.  and it was organic kale @ $1.99/ea. if you compare that to the prices on an 8 oz. container of kale chips… well, you can’t even compare. my dehydrator has already paid for itself in savings!

and you know what else i love about having a dehydrator?  i just plug it in at night and run it while i sleep – it creates fantastic white noise in my tiny home and the food makes itself with no effort on my part.  so cool!

    I’ve never gotten kale chips down in the oven, these look great from the dehydrator!
