Delicious Kale

Kale has always been one of those kinda polarizing foods.  Not everyone loves it… but this versatile green is experiencing a food renaissance, and not just in the health-food community!

This hippy-turned-hipster green is continuing to gain popularity, it’s loaded with nutrients and lots of fiber, is budget friendly, and is abundant at farmers markets.

Kale makes a tasty side dish when sautéed with garlic and adds a rich, hearty element to soups and stews. These days kale is the “darling” in recipes such as my Citrus Green Juice (recipe below).

And it seems kale continues to be a favorite on chef’s menus across the county– making appearances in a variety of forms. From Za’atar dusted Kale Chips, to Savory Vegetarian Hand-Pies, to your favorite Healthy Smoothie!

So, whether you’re looking to try something new, or just trying to get more fiber in your diet, pick up some kale and get cooking!
