Need a little crunch? Try kale or zucchini chips!

At last night’s client cooking class, Assistant Operations Manager Kirby Rowton and five members of Texas State University’s Student Nutrition Organization (SNO) taught eight of our clients how to make kale and zucchini chips.

Kale and zucchini chips are healthy snacks. Zucchinis are 95% water, low in sodium, and rich in vitamin C. One zucchini has just 25 calories – and more potassium than a banana! Meanwhile, one cup of chopped kale provides more than 100% of the daily recommended value of vitamins A, C, and K. Check out the recipes below!
