First time here, hope it's right. If you miss eating french fries...

and are tired of celery do this:

cut broccoli into the usual florets. Shake it in a plastic bag with a T or less of olive oil depending on how much of it you are using.
Sprinkle with a little salt after you put it in your small toaster oven at 400 for about 35 - 40 min til it's good and crisped.

I just ate that, and I'm amazed at how good it is. And I don't see how it could have any more calories than celery.
And it's winter, and it's warm. Like real food ought to be in my mind.

2. CAN'T believe I said broccoli.

When I just inhaled a third of a head of cauliflower!
(I'm not even sure this would be good for broccoli)

But really

I love it when you correct me on something this inconsequential.
May it always remain so.

4. Lol.

It is actually good with broccoli too. And Brussel sprouts. But cauliflower is best.

7. I'm not into cooking but they're really easy to make, even for me!

I got the recipe here: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Baked-Kale-Chips/

If you scroll down and read the reviews there are a lot of helpful tips. This one from the person who posted the recipe says it all:

I am the poster of this recipe. Thank you all for such nice reviews. You can CUT CALORIES CONSIDERABLY by spraying them with a mister or PAM(TM). I use a "Misto"(TM) filled with olive oil. Also, you can decrease the salt and add additional seasonings. Enjoy!! UPDATE: The timing of the baking, as others noted, is critical. Baking too little results in limp kale pieces and baking too long causes a "burned" taste. Be sure to use the "curly" kale variety as it tend to be less bitter.DO NOT EXPECT them to taste like potato chips... that was just an expression I used in the description. Kale is a nutritional powerhouse and rich in calcium and other vitamins. GREAT way to feed yourself and your kids!! ENJOY!!
