Kale Chips! Recipe!


Classic Kale Chips

1/2 bunch kale leaves, removed from stalks and torn into bite sized pieces

extra virgin olive oil – about 1 tbs

sea salt – about 1 tsp (or to taste)

Cuttyhunk Kale ChipsĀ 

BBQ: 1/2 bunch kale leaves, removed from stalks and torn into bite sized pieces

extra virgin olive oil – about 1 tbs

Cuttyhunk Island Market Mesquite BBQ Seasoning blend – about 1 tbs (or to taste)

CURRY:

1/2 bunch kale leaves, removed from stalks and torn into bite sized pieces

extra virgin olive oil – about 1 tbs

1 tsp curry powder, 1/8 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp cardamom powder

*Heat oven to 350 degrees, drizzle kale with olive oil and toss until evenly coated. Add spices and toss again until evenly distributed. Lay out flat on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until crispy but not browned. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

FREESTYLE: Add whatever seasonings you’d like! The possibilities are endless! Just remember to not over season as some spices can get bitter. (Case-in-point, my curry recipe when I made it again was very bitter because I thought more spices would make them more flavorful and therefore more delicious… I was wrong. But try whatever you’d like and as much as you’d like and see what happens! And tell me about it!)

My Happy Place


I have a place that heals and rejuvenates me every summer. It was introduced to me by my college room mate who is fortunate enough to own property there. It is an island that those who have spent any length of time on hold fondly in their hearts. The place? Cuttyhunk.

I visit for at least a few days at a time every summer. I eat home-cooked food, often made with garden-fresh produce because there are very few restaurants. I walk everywhere, climbing up and down the hilly roads, because the island is so small there is little need for a vehicle. I play volleyball, and partake in dance fitness class (but have yet to make it to sunset yoga on the beach). I walk barefoot and connect with the earth. I commune with the wind, sitting on bunkers, on the highest points of the island looking out at close to 360 degrees of ocean. I am buoyed and healed by the tranquil sea. I collect treasures along the shore. I worship the sun by day, the moon and stars by night.
Each visit, I have a profound experience learning about my true self.
This year, I returned from my four day vacation a solid 5 pounds lighter, (and still dropping) more relaxed, with better digestion, and increased muscle tone.
A few years ago, I decided to embark on my journey to become a health coach, and I had a vision of future health retreats on Cuttyhunk Island.

I had hoped to share with you more of the enchanting sites on Cuttyhunk, but a digital error erased the majority of the photos I took this July. Perhaps it’s better to remain a gorgeous mystery prime for discovery.
