This post comes from the lovely Erin, over at Well in LA (and now Collective Inspiration (CO.IN) Design Studio). When Erin offered to write a guest post for me (on kale no less) how could I say no? She even threw in a bonus smoothie recipe. And y’all know how I feel about smoothies.
Erin is a fellow food blogger, health coach, and wellness aficionado. One minute spent talking to her, and you want to live her mantra: Be Well.
Kale is way more than a decorative base for other food. In fact, it’s usually the most nutrient dense food on the plate – on the planet. Rescue the kale from the local buffet table and show it a little love.
Kale is best eaten early in the day, and you can have it in a salad as part of you mid-day meal, or try it for breakfast.
