Kickin' it with Kale

If you eat a lot of raw food, you know the joys of kale.  However, if you are new to raw shenanigans, you might think of kale only in terms of reuseable salad bar decoration. I remember waiting tables in college, fluffing out the same pieces of salad bar kale for weeks on end.  I never knew the stuff was edible.

Now I eat it as often as possible.

In smoothies:

In the form of kale chips: 

Marinated and massaged:

Today I cut thin strips of dinosaur kale and massaged a little olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt, and ACV into the leafies.  I let it sit while I skied and on my return, poured some of yesterday's curry soup over the top.  It was sooooo good.  Sometimes I think things taste better when I know they are healthy for me.

I also had a small bowl of beet salad from the Flying Squirrel

My good friend, Shannon at Healthy Starts just posted about checking your digestive system by eating beets.  I'll let you know if I learn anything interesting.  :)

I made some seriously nutritious sprouted quinoa cookies today (that kids might even eat!)- check back in tomorrow for the recipe!  

Question:   Did you eat your kale today? 


  1. I love your college cafeteria story! And those cookies look most beguiling also.

    No kale in the house here, but lots of spinach, dried nettles and lettuces...

  2. Yes I ate my kale today--I am hooked, line and sinker!!!
    Looks like yummy eats going on there!
    Peace and Raw Health,

    I am hooked too, Elizabeth! I freak out when I don't have any kale in the house. I can't wait until I am able to start growing it again.
