Celebrate National Kale Day
Are you ready to celebrate one of the hottest vegetables on the planet? Currently, kale is one of the hottest trends in food. If you’re into gardening, you can grow your own. The best time to start this would be in the Spring or Fall. In the same fashion, any member in the cabbage family won’t suffer due to frost or frigid cold temperatures.
Water regularly. Another great thing is you can plant the seeds separately or in a row. No doubt, if you plant now, this will be ready to consume in approximately six weeks.
Are you looking for ways to eat your greens? Well, don’t fret as I have some easy recipes that will whet your appetite. For something super easy and quick, toss your greens into a bowl, add a tablespoon of light olive oil, some fresh lemon, ground black pepper and a touch of sea salt. Toss together and voila – the perfect salad to devour.
Another great recipe is to saute some garlic in a little olive oil. Add some red pepper flakes, a hint of sea salt, ground black pepper and dress this over your favorite pasta, fish or meat.
As always, I welcome your comments.
Wishing you a Happy Healthy Kale Day!
