Kale Chips Recipe
1 head kale, washed and thoroughly dried
2 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt, for sprinkling
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Lay on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and salt. Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes. Serve as finger food.
Body Part: Knee
Water workouts provide low-impact resistance and add a strength-training aspect to aerobic exercises such as walking or jogging.
T’ai chi can help increase your range of motion, lengthen your muscles, and make your ligaments and tendons more resilient.
Isometric exercises and yoga strengthen core body muscles as well as leg muscles that support the knee.
