Crisps and wine go hand in hand! However, they are very high in fat and have very little nutritional benefits. A FANTASTIC alternative is making crisps from Kale.
This recipe is super easy and incredibly tasty. The greatest benefit is that Kale is the most nutrient dense food in the world. It is a great source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Antioxidants, plus minerals such as Calcium and Magnesium. Just google the benefits of Kale and you will add this vegetable to your diet in an instant.
In the meantime, give this recipe a go:-
