How is your weekend going so far? My sister just left today (sadness!) but at least she left you a little token of torture that you will get to experience on Thursday for your new video! There is a move that literally left my inner thighs SPAZZING for a whole minute. Yup. It’ll be cray!
Here we are at Diddy Riese in Westwood eating our YOLO meal for the week! I got a peanut butter and oatmeal raisin vanilla ice cream cookie sandwich! I believe Jackelyn got whote chocolate macadamia nut and chocolate chip with vanilla inside. These cookie sandwiches are amazing! Only $1.75! I went to Sprinkles Ice Cream in Beverly Hills a few weeks ago and can you believe they sell the same thing for like $8??? It’s ridiculous!
You know what we should do? Let’s healthify it!!
Why don’t you make my 2 ingredient cookies and then sandwich the peanut butter banana ice cream inside? Holy canoli! That’s a really good idea!!! GO FOR IT!!! Please tweet me a pic when you make it! AHHH! My mouth is now watering for this!
Oh so anyway, you are probably wondering about the “Healthy Doritos” I mentioned in the title. I’m actually alluding to Kale Chips! I just got my dehydrator and wanted to give it a whirl IMMEDIATELY! I bought kale chips at Whole Foods the other day and it was like $5.99 for a teeny weeny bag of leaves. They were amazing, but expensive. So I looked up a recipe on thekitchn.com and was shocked at the success of the recipe! Almost cried tears of culinary joy.
Let’s see how I made it:
Cheesy Doritos Kale Chips
Serves 2 to 4 for snacking
3/4 cup soaked sunflower seeds (you could also use cashews. soak your nuts in water for about an hour)
1 bunch kale, washed and dried
1/2 red bell pepper, stem and seeds removed, chopped into large pieces
1 clove garlic, peeled
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup nutritional yeast (got mine at Whole Foods – it was $14.99 for a little tub)
1 lemon, peeled, cut into wedges, and de-seeded
First, blend up all of your ingredients! Then mix them in with the kale in a large bowl. Make sure every leaf is covered with love!
If you have a dehydrator (I have the Nesco 700 watt), place the leaves on the trays and make sure they are not touching each other. If you only have an oven, then lay the leaves on a baking sheet on a pan.
Set the dehydrator to about 135-145F for a 2-3 hours or until crunchy and not wilty. For oven people, turn up to heat to 350F and bake for 5 min. Then toss and bake for another 5. You need to be careful! These can burn very very easily.
Then after all of that work…this amazingness comes out!!!!!
The flavor was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!! It really tasted like Doritos and Jackelyn and I gobbled it up like monsters after our workout. I let her take the rest of the batch home on the plane but no worries…headed to Trader Joes immediately and got more kale 🙂
Give it a try guys! I know you will really love it. Next time I wanna try honey mustard flavor…oh and how about Hot Cheetos or Sriracha flavored kale chips!!??? That would be ridiculous. Okay, I am on it. It’s my next mission.
What flavor do you think would be adventurous to try? Let me know in the comments! I’ll pick one of yours to experiment with!
Tomorrow (Sunday) I am headed to a raw vegan cooking workshop all day! I am super duper excited to learn all about how creative you can get with vegetables! And what effect non-heated, live foods have on your body. Will share what I learn Monday!
Love you! Have a fabulous day and see you soon! Hope everyone did the 100 Burpee Burnout by now. If you didn’t – you better get on it. I am watching you.
