Crazy Sexy Kale Salad!
Today we are talking about Kale, Kale Salad in particular. Hanging out in the wellness blogosphere, Kale is ALL THE RAGE. I’m always hearing about new recipes, people throwing it into Green smoothies with no abandon, there is even Kale Chips?!
(I think anything with chips next to it sounds quite yummy actually)
However, I had yet to jump on the kale bandwagon, and I don’t know what the hold up was — apparently its amazing for you jam packed with yummy nutrients and things that superheroes need for daily battle.
My co-worker friend (who is on a mission to eat clean and drop some pounds) told me he was going to make a kale salad and bring me some.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call a breakthrough.
My oh so generous co worker brought me some, as promised, and I surprised myself! I actually liked it. It was good! I can get used to the taste of Kale. I only had a small amount of the salad and I was full (like, didn’t even need to snack before dinner full…who knew?!).
