    I just got back from the natural products expo and found a yummy snack. Kale.

    I don't remember having any kale before but this is delicious. I tried this flavor called Vampire Killer by Brad's Raw Leafy Kale. So amazingly yummy!

    Kale is what they use to decorate around the refrigerated sections in the meat dept of the grocery store,, at least they used to.

    My nephew gets chocolate covered kale as a snack. He's allergic and/or intolerant to basically 99% of all existing food in the world and has the most radical and bizarre diet.

    Sauteed kale is delicious, full of vitamins, easy to make and inexpensive.

    -Rinse a bunch of fresh kale, remove stems and chop kale into bite sized pieces.

    -Saute fresh garlic to taste in some olive oil. Add the kale and 1/4 cup of water. Cover and let steam for 10 minutes, stirring occasionaly. Remove the cover and let any leftover water boil away.

    -Remove from heat and add fresh lemon juice to taste.


    YUMMMMMMM!!!!!

    I just started using Kale this week, actually and find it very delicious. I sauteed it with some spinach to cook it down. Then i added 20+ egg whites, fat free cheese, salt to season, a bit of cream, and baked for about 20 minutes. I guess it's kind of like a quiche, but not exactly. Perfect with a gluten free bagel in the morning for breakfast. I love it.

    There's an Italian Heirloom variety called 'Cavalo Nero' that is used in soups, stews, sautees, pretty much everything. Has a great colour and the texture stays solid even through long cooking. It's also being marketed as "Dinosaur Kale" as the leaves bear more than a passing resemblance to what one would imagine Dinosaur skin looking like... Delicious and easy to grow, as well!

    Mmmm, it's so good for you! I ate it everyday for a whole winter. I also sauté it in olive oil, but it's not the quickest thing to cook. I've had homemade kale 'chips' too, oven-baked, but I've never been able to achieve that result myself.

    The Dark Side Of Kale (And How To Eat Around It)

    "If you don’t have a thyroid issue, kale can and should be a delicious and healthy part of your diet because it is, indeed, a nutritional superstar with excellent credentials"

    If you do have a thyroid issue:
    - cook your kale, eat seaweed with it, add a brazil nut, and/or make sure to vary your greens.

    My history teacher made the most amazing wilted kale and pomegranate salad for her Christmas party. Back when I gave enough of a damn to juice vegetables it was also great in it, too.
