Food Hack: Make Your Own Taco Kale Chips

We LOVE kale here at Nomster Chef and hope you do, too! It's high in fiber and has tons of iron, vitamin k and antioxidants. As if it could get any better, you can also make "chips" out of kale! So fun and easy to nom on. This Taco Kale Chip version has some of our favorite Mexican spices, plus nutritional yeast (an ingredient that tastes like cheese but is healthy and vegan). Mmm!

We decided to make these flax seed mug muffins and were pleasantly surprised by how yummy they were. They tasted like cinnamon coffee cake! These muffins in a mug are doubly great if you or your little ones are lacking in self control (we definitely have none). You can make just 1 muffin so no need to tempt yourself with an entire tray.
