In an effort to keep to my PCOS diet as closely as possible I had to give a guilty pleasure of mine. Did you know that most salt and vinegar chips contain milk? That was not settling well with my tummy. I decided to try my hand at homemade salt and vinegar chips and bumped up the PCOS diet nutrition by switching a potato for kale. I think you’re going to enjoy the twist on a plain ‘ole kale chip recipes.

Kale is so beneficial to anybody really, but especially women with PCOS. My mom used to tease me because I could force myself to like something if I knew it was nutritionally good for me. Lucky for you, I don’t think you’ll have to force yourself to like these chips, although the PCOS health benefits are pretty appetizing.

Here are just a few reasons why kale is good for PCOS.

  • Improves cholesterol levels
  • Kale is an anti-inflammatory food full of anti-oxidants, which is a common symptom in women with PCOS
  • Its high in vitamin A, C, & K. Good for increasing metabolism, improving skin and protecting your bones.
  • Get a healthy dose of omega-3′s, yes, from kale. One cup is 10% of your daily omega-3 recommendation
  • Kale is loaded with fiber and sulfur, which is wonderful for Spring detox and helping you to feel full
  • Get a healthy dose of magnesium to aid in your digestion
  • This recipe utilizes apple cider vinegar for an added level of PCOS health as it regulates your blood glucose level

The Recipe

1 bunch kale, stemmed and ripped into bite sizes

1 tbsp EVOO

1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/2 tsp salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 and pour EVOO, vinegar and salt into a self-sealing bag. Place kale in the bag and toss until its all evenly coated.

On a baking sheet, arrange the kale in a single layer. Place the sheet into the oven and bake for 20 minutes, depending on your desired level is crispiness. That’s it, enjoy!

Would this work with fresh spinach?

Sure! I’m imagining that you’re speaking about baby spinach (arugula) that has a leafy shape. Share your success please!
