Kale Chips…Easy & Yes, Yummy too

I decided to eat a bit healthier. OK I usually do but I wanted a delicious snack as well so Kale Chips I decided to make. Very easy to do and doesn’t take too much time either. Here’s the recipe. Try it. I’ve even done it before and used cinnamon sugar lightly sprinkled for a sweet healthier treat.

Ingredients

Kale

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Truffle Salt (Found at Trader Joes)

How To

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Clean and dry Kale

Break off into pieces 

Drizzle with EVOO and sprinkle Truffle Salt (or whatever seasonings you desire)

Bake for 12 minutes.

That’s it and it’s easy and healthier than chips from the store and has lots of nutrients. Enjoy!



I Get Weak Too

Today is brought to you by candy from Sugarfina. Their candy is like a little piece of heaven. As my good friend puts it “It’s a party in your mouth” and one of the reasons why exercising with PCOS is so important. I’m not perfect, by far BUT I’ve learned I can’t always deprive myself of anything yummy. I don’t eat gluten or dairy so a treat at times is needed.

With PCOS what you eat really isn’t processed right and a slice of bread for me is like a loaf of bread for someone without the insulin issues.

I want women to know you can have treats from time to time and I pick and choose carefully when and what I have.

Just because I jog two plus miles per day doesn’t give me the right to eat whatever I want. Especially with PCOS this is so true.

So if you’re weak at times don’t beat yourself up. PCOS makes me so hard on myself and I have to remember I didn’t ask for this disease.

Here’s my weakness and if you’re in either the Beverly Hills or Glendale areas of California I say take a moment and visit Sugarfina which has the most amazing candy EVER!!

Exercise & PCOS

I’ve never been a huge fan of exercise. However; I’ve found those 30 Day Challenges to be a lot of fun because it’s a 30 Day commitment and that’s all.

I posted once on Facebook that I was doing a plank challenge and I had over 10 friends ask to do it with me. This has led to other challenges.

Currently it’s a squat challenge & upper body challenge. Loved a quote I saw

“Squats, because no one ever wrote a song about small butts.”

and…that’s why the squat challenge came about.

I’ve also gotten into jogging again. I fell some time ago and have a fear of falling again since I usually go at 5am but I’m getting over that fear too. I even started the Couch to 5k again to get me comfortable.

With PCOS it’s so discouraging a lot of the time because I can work out and work out and the weight just sticks around. Still, if I keep up with the exercise I feel good about me. Exercise and cutting both gluten & dairy out really do help keep the weight off.

I feel bad for all of us with PCOS it’s a very individual condition. What works for some doesn’t work for others but believe me when I say how much better I feel completing a challenge or finishing a day of jogging.
