My favourite healthy snack: KALE CHIPS

Use:

1 10 oz bag of kale

1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil

1/2 teaspoon of salt (or seasoning salt if you want to get fancy) 

To make:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) 

2. Tear into pieces that you would want to eat. Keep in mind, they shrivel a little bit. Many people don’t like the stems, so cut them off if you dislike to eat them.

3. Toss the kale with the oil and slat, making sure the salt is spread out.

4. Pour kale onto parchment paper on a pan. Make sure to spread the kale out so it is all cooked evenly.

5. Bake until dry (if you like them more bitter, until the edges are turning brown) - around 10-15 minutes depending on your oven.

6. Enjoy!

And So It Begins

I’m not a person who particularly likes to exercise.

I love the idea of exercise: the idea of fitness and strength and being healthy appeals to me completely, but the actual act absolutely does not. I would love to be one of those fit people who got up early in the morning feeling the internal need to exercise, but in reality, those people piss me off. I remember having someone in the gym tell me how upset she was for her day if she didn’t exercise and I also vividly remember laughing in her face until I realized she was serious.

Whoops.

I’ve also never been extremely in shape. I’ve never been forced to work out to maintain my body shape. When I do work out, I don’t see my body change, but that also applies with the other extreme: I can eat a full carton of ice cream every day for a month and also see no change. I swim and I’ve sampled almost every sport I’ve heard of, I just don’t feel extremely motivated to do so.

But I’ve finally decided that I want to be fit. I want to feel healthy and strong. I don’t want to be ashamed of my body at the beach, and I don’t want to have to starve myself to take off my shirt in public. I want to be able to do pushups and pull-ups. I want to run a marathon and put one of those annoying stickers on the back of my car.

I really want to be healthy.

And that is something that I can change. This blog will be my motivation and my accountability for what will hopefully become the rest of my life.

Enjoy!
