Kale, Beautiful Kale

16 Feb

Above: Foods I have not eaten in over a year, and definitely no fast food, fried food, and I went mostly organic. Confession: went almost a year without any refined sugar, only occasional honey, once in a great while, (not a big deal as I am not into sweets much). Then, in the past couple of weeks I broke that rule and had lemon meringue pie twice in the same week and some chocolate here and there too, bad girl 🙂 In my defense: My oncologist up at UCLA told me to live a little . . . 🙂

One of my new "fast foods" - Chopped Kale Salad - (my own creation) ingredients: organic chopped kale, organic hearts of romaine lettuce (takes some of the bitterness of the Kale out), wild salmon, organic green beans all chopped up & mixed in with balsamic dressing, prep time, about 15 min.

    I’ve never learned to enjoy kale… but my bunny loves it!

    Well, good for your bunny! There are many different types of Kale, and a lot of what I have tried is pretty darn bitter. But, the Kale above is pretty good, okay, if you like lettuce that tastes like broccoli, then it is fantastic. But, prepared the right way, it is not bitter and it actually tastes good and feels good to be eating it. Kale is one of those super foods, and is supposedly a very good anti-cancer green. So, I’m in. (Plus it helps to boost hemoglobin for those who are anemic). I think I will write a little song about it . . .

    Hail to Kale?

    After I ate my Chopped Kale Salad, I had an orange. Oranges help your body uptake iron (which I am low on at the moment). So, I had an orange after the Kale (which is iron rich). But, just realized, the orange should have been IN the salad – that would definitely be a good addition to the Chopped Kale Salad. Next time 🙂
