Today, I will be talking about my favorite green…the best green leaf in the entire world, k a l e. There are so many reasons why I’m so in love with this green, and I could talk about it all day. I actually wrote a whole research paper on it last year (if you actually want to read it, I’ll put a link to it).
Kale is not only delicious, but its also super cheap, and has so so so so many health benefits.
Delicious & Versatile:
When you first try kale, especially if its raw you may think I’m crazy for saying it’s so delicious…especially if you are iceberg lettuce person. Kale has a deep, green taste and depending on the type of kale can be a little bitter. It may take a few attempts for you to get used to the deliciousness of the green, but it is worth it in the end. If you’re not a fan of the raw kale (which most people aren’t) that is totally fine because it is an a m a z i n g green to cook with. Because it is packed with nutrition, and is such a hearty green it cooks beautifully. This green is also great to sneak into smoothies, for added nutrition. If you add enough fruit (three parts fruit, one part green) you can barely taste the kale.
