I have to admit, I have not been as healthy as I aspired to be on January 1st. I haven't been terrible but if I am being real, physically, I am not where I would like to be. So in an attempt to make some progress, I went to Trader Joe's, got my usual healthy favorites, PLUS a bag of Kale.
I AM NOT ON THE KALE TRAIN. Truthfully, I really do not like it one bit. I made a salad with it that night and legitimately BARELY chocked it down; I attribute my disdain to the texture. Here I am the next day with a massive bag of organic kale and a dream to eat it all. So I pulled out my food processor and processed that kale as much as I could. When I was done, it looked like a pile of grass. Since I had my processor out I decided to extreme chop whatever I could find which ended up being pine nuts, sun dried tomatoes, and parmesan. I finished it off by thoroughly mixing in some vegan Cesar Romano dressing from Trader Joe's and plopping half of an avo on top. Now, I want to shout from the roof tops, "I am in love and I am a Kale convert." By eliminating the texture, I have found something close to perfection, the marriage of the flavors is flawless and its my new go to lunch favorite. It doesn't hurt that I ate a half bag of kale for lunch, either. Your body will love you forever, just make it!
