Jennifer Aniston admitted that she turned to leafy green kale chips to slim down for her role as a stripper in We're The Millers, so what's all the fuss about?

She admitted, "'When I really wanted to have a cheat day, I had to have a kale chip."

Hhhhhmmm, that's not our definition of falling off the strict diet wagon - but Jen's favourite kale chips are a great alternative to hitting the big eat crisps.

This low calorie, low fat snack is packed with vitamins, minerals, iron, potassium and vitamin A, and actually tastes pretty darn good when you're craving a salty crunchy treat.

The easiest kale chips recipe


To make the chips, take 100g kale leaves, separated from the stalks and shredded into pieces.

Spray them with low fat oil (or use a smidge of olive oil) and sprinkle on some cayenne pepper (or salt if you want to be really indulgent) and bake in the oven until crispy and a little bit brown - about 10 minutes.

Each serving has around 50 calories, 2g of dietary fibre, 3g of protein, 1g of fat (0.1 of which is saturated, and no cholesterol) - compared to a 34.5g bag of Walker's Salt & Vinegar Crisps which has 169 calories and 10g fat.
