A to Z Challenge & Six Word Saturday: Kale!

This post is part of the April A-Z Blogging Challenge. This year my theme is simply, "things I know." Some posts will be informational, some about life lessons, some about things I've learned as an author/blogger. This post is also part of the Six Word Saturday blog hop! A chance to be a little less verbose, and use your weekend for other things. Lovely :)

Kale - a versatile vegetable super food.

I know there are people who think there's a cult of kale, but really.. It's so versatile and yummy! If there's a cult I'm happy to be in it. I love to replace other greens with it in soup recipes, and to make kale chips.

Any other kale fans out there?


  1. Maybe I need to give it a try. I always had the impression it was bitter.

  2. This is the second pro-kale endorsement I've had this week. A friend makes a smoothie drink with kale and swears it too is YUMMY. Guess I'll have to give it a try.
    Congrats on making it through Week #2. .

  3. I have been doing baby spinach leaves, but a lot of people I know do Kale.

  4. The Cult of Kale - that could a book title! :) I've never tried it, I'm quite conventional when it comes to my food but people keep going on about it so it might be time!

  5. I used to think it was just a garnish, after all, that's how we used it at my one job. A piece of Kale with a piece of fruit added for color on each plate. Then my current day job (another restaurant) put it in a healthy smoothie and I was a bit shocked it was edible. LOL Since then I've tried it in a dish, but mostly throw it in the healthy smoothies I make at home.

  6. Kale in soup I can handle. Not crazy about it raw though. Enjoy, Maria from Delight Directed Living

  7. I have never tried kale. Maybe we should plant a few seeds this summer and see if we like it.

  8. I've even used the baby kale as a salad. It's good, but has to be fresh and tender.

  9. I have heard of kale, but it doesn't seem to be available where I live. Certainly, they sell vegetable juice containing kale, but I don't know what kale itself tastes like.
    Since I love green vegetables, I would probably like it, too.


  10. not convinced on kale chips. A healthy oxymoron.

  11. My husband and I are big fans of what is called a NutriBullet machine. It's a machine that turns vegetables and fruits into liquids to consume as drinks. Currently, I make my husband and I a drink of kale, apples, lemons and ginger. It's an extremely healthy drink.

  12. My family is from the south. Kale and Okra are each their own food group.

    Wish I could finish my A to Z posts in six letters ;-) I've heard wonderful things about kale and I've maybe had it once or twice but I can't say for sure. Will have to incorporate it into my diet when I start eating healthier. Should be any year now... :/

  14. I just became a Kale fan. My whole diet is changing because of my darn cholesterol and an artery that is plugged pretty good. Kale is on the list of good things. Been eating a lot of salads with it. I am not a fan of hot spinach and am wondering if this tastes the same if heated?
