Cassie, no I've never made kale chips. But I will definitely look into it. I bought fresh kale this morning. Thanks!
It'll be so nice when your son starts driving. You know he's had good training and a lot of practice and it'll likely free up some time for yourself.
Donna, nice goals. I don't think anyone here would consider logging everything you eat as an obsession. I think most of us strive to log everything and I do believe it's one of the keys to success. Personally, I have to log every bit of food that goes into my mouth to manage my health and for any way of eating I've ever followed.
