Bikram: Day Two (and Kale Chips)

Yesterday I went to my second Bikram class. The bad news? It’s still really hard. The good news? I only had to skip two poses due to dizziness.

That’s progress!

Oh, did I mention that I went to the 6 a.m. class? Well, I did. And, surprisingly, I didn’t run out of energy come 3 p.m., as was typical when I was attending a 6 a.m. spin class.

In fact, I had enough energy left to make kale chips at 11 p.m.

 

Bright-eyed at 11 p.m. with a pan of kale.

 

The recipe is from Kath Eats Real Food (via my husband’s cousin’s blog).

Here’s what I learned:

  • I don’t remember what kind of kale I used (it was from our produce box), but I think this might make a difference. The kale wasn’t frilly and leafy, like Kath’s kale.
  • Although I usually have to leave baked goods in my oven longer than suggested by the recipe, the same is not true for kale. (Translation: I burned the chips.)
  • A little olive oil goes a long way.
  • Parmesan was a good idea.
  • I don’t know if I like kale chips.

Ok, I’d give them another shot, making sure to only leave them in for 15 minutes, but I’m not convinced yet.

 

Before: drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with Parmesan and kosher salt.

 

 

After: a little TOO crispy.
