Wednesday, April 22nd is EARTH DAY !


Celebrate Earth Day this year by adding more healthful greens to your diet.

Today’s featured green-tastic food is: K A L E šŸ™‚


And now, for an inspired recipe…..
  • 2 heavy handfuls (2-3 cups) of organic raw kale leaves (I prefer the lacinato a.k.a. “dino” variety)
  • 1 tsp. of olive oil (I’ve use truffle oil occasionally and it is AMAZING)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tsp. of Celtic sea salt
  1. De-stem the kale leaves from the stem by simply placing your index finger and middle finger (in the shape of a claw), and “claw” down the center of the leaf to de-stem while simultaneously pulling the leaf away from you with your other hand.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the de-stemmed kale leaves with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Lightly pour an additional 1 tsp. of olive oil onto your hands to coat.
  4. Using a massaging action (similar to kneading bread dough), start to tear the leaves apart and massage.
  5. Continue massaging for about 2-5 minutes or until the leaves are softened, the leaves will also turn a more vibrant green.
  6. Use this as a salad base or add toppings of your choice for a complete meal in a bowl.
