vegan cheesy kale chips
High protein vegan snack share! I always get asked about vegan/vegetarian sources of protein and how to meet protein needs with plant-based foods. And I’m here to tell you that it’s absolutely possible!
I’m bringing kale chips back like its 2008 😉 They’re full of fiber, vitamin A and vitamin K. If you aren’t a fan of raw kale then this is a great way to eat it!
Tip: always pair fiber with protein to make a balanced snack.
fiber = kale and pistachios
protein = nutritional yeast and pistachios
