Crispy kale chips – awesome for your colon.

Healthy chips – do they exist? Yeah, they actually do. And they work wonders for your gut flora!

Northern suburbs of Stockholm, the white house on the corner, mid-February. Spring is almost in the air, and we’ve just removed freshly made, crispy kale chips from the oven, and placed them under the nose of an 8-year-old. We cannot hide the look of contentment on our faces. These are tasty, very tasty. And the gut flora loves kale.

And so, all of a sudden, it happens.


– Mom, how do you make these?

Excuse me? Did Mia’s son just ask for the recipe? We are struck dumb with amazement.

– These? Ah, it’ super easy! we said, strained.


– First of all, you reach for 250g fresh kale.


– Remove the leaves from the stem, and rip them into bite-size pieces.


– Prepare two tablespoons of nice olive oil, and a pinch or two of salt.


– Pour the oil mixture over the leaves, and massage the kale gently for 1-2 minutes.

Pause for effect.

– Ok, it might sound odd that you’re supposed to MASSAGE the leaves, but it’s to make sure the oil is evenly distributed.


– Spread the leaves evenly onto a baking pan, and bake in the oven for almost an hour, at 70 degrees Celsius.


– Once they’re dry and crispy, remove them from the oven and give yourself a good pat on the back. You’ve just made the most perfect kale chips!

The 8-year-old turns to Mia with a serious look on his face. His eyes tell it all.

– But mom, I said: WHY do you make these?

Curtain falls.
