many thanks to xell, my colon hydrotherapist, for her wonderful suggestions and basic recipe for kale chips. i hate kale, and can only tolerate it in small amounts if marinated and in a salad. i was very hesitant to try this idea but xell (pronounced "chell") said they're out of this world. too true. they taste like popcorn and are so crunchy, i can eat a whole head of kale while stuck in traffic. my 2-year-old niece and my own 18-month-old love their 'crunchy salad' and we have to make sure to tear it up a little or else they stuff their faces. one day i'll get a picture of the two of them, with the green powder residue all over their faces. reminiscent of childhood cheetos overdosing... long live green chips!!
I eat tons of savory kale chips, and though that it would be fun to try one with dried fruit and kale. here it is! delish. my baby loves her "yummies" and i have to break them up for her. savory recipe coming soon, when i can stop eating them long enough to take a photo.

This is a modified recipe from reallyrawhoney.com. You could try to subsititute agave instead of the honey if you like, but the raw honey has a very thick consistency that helps for the balls. This is a great sweet treat that even non-raw people like.
This dish is very simple, very tasty and very filling!
I've had some chia seeds sitting in my pantry for a few months now and, after a little research, made some chia seed gel (1/3 cup chia seeds mixed with 2 cups of water or fresh fruit juice - or perhaps a nut milk).
Haha, it was very exciting to wait, and watch, those little seeds to soak up the water - a minimum of 10 minutes - and the gel can be stored in the refrigerator, in a sealed container (for up to 2 weeks if mixed with water). It reminded me of pearl tapioca which I haven't eaten since I was 7 years old!
