  1. I love roasted kale. Put the oven on 425, coat the kale lightly in olive oil and salt and pepper. Spread it out on a cookie sheet, roast for 4-5 minutes on each side. Better than potato chips!!

    • That sounds awesome. I see a new post in our future:)
      Thanks for the suggestion!

  2. Kale salads are the best, especially when they involve avocado. Just gotta have that creamy richness to contrast those bitter greens. I’m craving one right now just looking at that photo!
