Want some snacks while watching TV or for the party?  We are pleased to tell you of this super yummy & easy to make vegetarian food – Kale Chips.  It tastes like nacho cheese but better and is very popular among my vegetarian friends and meat-eaters alike. Although it takes 12 hours to dehydrate, the process is very easy, and you can find the tools in your kitchen or the supermarket anywhere. It is probably by far the best Kale chips I have ever eaten!!! So yummy. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do~

What you need: 1 large bunch of curly, green kale, washed, large stems removed, torn into bite size pieces COATING: 1 cup cashews (soaked 2 hours) 1 red bell pepper, seeded chopped Juice of 1 lemon 2 t. agave (optional-I don’t add, I like the more salty + savory) 1 T. nutritional yeast ½ t. Himalayan pink crystal salt (use more or less to taste)

Make it: Put coating ingredients in Vitamix. Blend until smooth.  Using your hands, massage coating onto kale pieces getting it inside of curls.  Put on teflex sheets (don’t worry about flattening them, they are better bunched up) and dehydrate at 105 overnight or until coating is dry.  Slide onto mesh screen and dehydrate for 12 hours, or until very crispy.

**note: mine just took about another 4 hours after overnight and flipping. YUM!

Paper straws take us back to a time when life was simpler. We weren’t consumed with thoughts of chemicals, organic food, and the price of oil. Instead, a group of friends sat at the local diner, sipping milkshakes or sodas with paper straws. Paper straws are vintage, retro and also modern at the same time. They are old….made new!

Check it out on Greenmunch giveaway.  They are quite the conversation piece at any birthday party, a backyard barbeque, a wedding, or even just for everyday use. Wedding planners and brides love them, and of course, kids love them too! They spice up a reception table with a splash of colour from stripes, polka dots and even red hearts for Valentines. They are compostable, so you don’t have to worry about the impact on the environment when you’re finished with them.

Giveaway details:

250 assorted straws, various colours (retail value $30) open to USA and Canada.
