Kale…superfood…..one of the healthiest veggies out there!

Tidbits on Kale:

Kale has large amounts of vitamin A, vitamin C, B6, manganese, calcium, copper, and potassium!

One cup of kale = 36 calories (holy guacamole)

Kale is a member of the Brassica family of veggies. Cabbage and brussels are members too. (You know we love our brussels).

But, this is where the “Mamas” disagree. Kale is in Claire’s top 5 favorite veggies, while Mallie is not a fan. She’d rather have kale as a garnish on her plate.

Never say never…Mallie’s mind was recently changed when she was served scrambled eggs with kale.

Eggs and Kale:

1. Chop up a handful of kale (serves 1-2)

2. Heat up a medium skillet with about a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.

3. Saute your kale for about 3 minutes, meanwhile beat 2 eggs in a bowl.

4. Poor eggs over kale in saute pan… Scramble… and…

5. Eat! (Salt and pepper to taste)

Claire is fan of chips. Any kind of chips. Corn chips. Potato chips. You name it, she will try. Which is how we started eating…

Kale Chips:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Wash and trim kale.

3. Separate the leaves, toss them with extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of salt.

4. Bake for 10 minutes

5. Voila! Crispy kale chips!

(Just FYI, these do NOT preserve well. Eat them ASAP!)

Both of these are simple, kid-friendly recipes. If you are on Mallie’s team for this one, just give it a try. You might have your mind changed too!

much love,

C & M

  1. There’s another superfood you should know about called the Aroniaberry (chokeberry). It is native to North America and contains one of the highest levels of antioxidants – anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins of any fruit. These powerful berries have been utilized for years because of their overall health and wellness benefits. Learn more at http://www.superberries.com.
