Still wondering about how to incorporate kale into your diet? Below are five easy ways to actually get kale into your body!
1. Blend it in a smoothie. Bam! Green smoothie.
2. Wash, dry, and toss with oil, salt, and pepper. Bake in a single layer, uncovered, at 300º for 10-15 minutes. Instant kale chips!
3. Add it to a salad, or use it to replace lettuce in a salad.
4. Put it on a sandwich.
5. Chop it up and sauté with fresh garlic and soy sauce. Yum.
Don’t forget: Buy organic kale. Conventional kale is on the EWG’s “dirty dozen” list.
Growing kale is easy! It’s hardy, and can grow in a pot or garden bed. Harvest the lower leaves and it keeps growing and produces for 3-4 seasons. It will become a Dr. Seuss-looking thing with all the growth on top of the strong stalk.
