My kale chip with a heart shaped hole
I made kale chips from some huge dinosaur kale grown in my Mom's garden last summer. As I was looking to boost my soup with some more nutrition today, I reached for a few kale chips to crumble into the broth. There, in the center of one of the chips, was a perfect heart shaped hole! Maybe a bug was chewing on it last summer. Maybe it chipped off in the bag while it was being stored. In either case, I think it is a sign. :) (This is just a little amusement. I don't really put much weight into looking for signs unless they are the signs that God has given in the Bible.) In any case, I am inspired by kale.
- Kale is very nutritious.
- Kale beats beef, pound for pound, in protein content without any artery clogging cholesterol.
- Kale also has some calcium value - as do other leafy greens.
- It can be added to soup in order to benefit from the most nutritional value.
- Kale can be cooked and blended with the soup broth to "hide" it in your soup.
- When eaten as chips, be sure to check your teeth before you have a conversation with someone.
- Chop kale into tiny pieces and add it to your salad. Chew thoroughly.
- There are a few varieties of kale: dinosaur (also called Nero or Tuscan), Red Russian, and curly are the most common varieties sold in the grocery.
- Kale has plant properties which feed the body's cells and gives them the fuel to heal, repair damage, burn fat and reverse cancer.
- You can get Vitamin A and C from eating kale. Who needs orange juice?
- Kale is safest to eat if grown organically.
