The nutritional benefits of kale are well known: as is the case with all dark, green, leafy vegetables, kale is high in vitamins A, C, E and K. It is also a pretty decent source of fiber with 3 grams per 2 cup serving of chopped kale.
While the nutritional profile is a no-brainer, finding innovative ways to incorporate more kale into your diet proves sometimes problematic. Sure, you can always sauteé it – a la spinach – or make your own kale chips, a la this previous post. But as for commercial kale options – well, suffice it to say, the options were pretty limited.
That was, until Rhythym Superfoods Kale Chips hit the stores. These Kale Chips are incredible – light, airy, flavorful – and without the boatload of sodium most packaged vegetable snacks need to make them actually taste good.
I sampled the Zesty Nacho flavor (thanks to the generosity and the samples sent from Rhythym Superfoods). And they’re not kidding when they say “zesty”!
The flavor is intense – but not in the unsettling sticky cheesy salty nacho flavoring way you are used to. By blending all organic vegetables, organic cashews, apple cider vinegar, lemon, organic spices and a touch of sea salt, these Kale Chips knock it out of the park! (Just make sure not to eat the desiccant packet in the package that keeps the kale crispy.)
In addition to carrying the USDA organic seal, Rhythym Superfoods’ line of packaged vegetable snacks are also raw, vegan, gluten-free, cholesterol-free, and GMO-free (as are all organic foods). A one-ounce serving of Zesty Nacho flavor has 106 calories, 5 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein and less than 200 mg sodium.
