You just saw the word, “kale” on a Monday after a deliciously long holiday weekend and now you want to look away and take a Tylenol. I judge you not. But don’t leave yet! I have an announcement for you that has kept me all pitted out and full of butterflies for the past week and I’m overflowing with need-to-share-with-you-ed-ness!
I’m writing a second cookbook! My publisher asked if I would be interested in writing a cookbook all about kale. Being as it is that I eat kale regularly in all sorts of forms, this book is a great fit for my lifestyle, so of course I accepted! I am still wrapping up Delicious Probiotic Drinks and as soon as it is all buttoned up, I will be jumping right in to the kale cookbook. It will include recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, sauces/spreads, smoothies, you name it! Plus, I will be discussing all of the health benefits of kale and even a gardening tip or two for growing kale in your very own back yard.
Kale chips! They’re easy, they’re crunchy, you can flavor them in all sorts of ways, they knock potato chips out of the ring with their brute strength. You can pack them up in a ziplock bag and take them on a road trip with you and break them out when you get the munchies.
Kale can be tough, bitter and fibrous when eaten raw, but when the leaves are baked, they crunch and dissolve right in your mouth and the bitterness disappears. You can flavor these however you would like, but simple sea salt tastes great!
Stay tuned and as always, thank you for being a part of this adventure with me!
