A Healthy Alternative to Chips

Kale Chips

  • 1 bunch kale cut or torn into chip size pieces
  • Olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Garlic powder (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Toss all ingredients and heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 6-8 minutes. Watch closely as they burn very easily. You can add your own seasonings to the kale as well, some cayenne pepper or cumin for example. Enjoy!

Quick Detox tip for your house

Quick  Detox for your home

Leave your shoes at the door.¬† Having a pair of “indoor only” shoes or slippers will cut down on the toxins, dirt, and grime you and your loved ones track into the house.

Also make it a habit to wipe your four legged friends’ paws after a walk before entering the house. This will also cut back on floor scrubbing time.

Track your Steps

Get a pedometer

Get out your pedometer or go and get one. Wear and find out how much you move each day. You may be pleasantly surprised or this may be a wake up call. In any case here are some goals:

Week 1

Goal: 2,500 steps per day

Week 2-3

Goal:5,000 steps per day

Week 4

Goal: 10,000 steps per day

Post your results instead of thinking you can remember them. Then you can track yourself.

Move it or Lose it!
