I’ve taken a new approach to eating lately. Over the years, I’ve focused a lot more on caloric intake than the nutritional value of the foods that I consume. And although counting calories definitely makes a difference in my weight, I always end up feeling hungry and end up sabotaging my “diet” altogether. So, lately I’ve decided to do a 180.
In an effort to feel healthy and balanced, I’m choosing to pay more attention to the food I eat and have stopped counting calories entirely. One of the foods that I’m trying to incorporate into my daily meals is kale.
Have you tried it? It’s FULL of amazing vitamins, folic acid, fiber, you name it. Buuuut it’s not the BEST tasting veggie, in my humble opinion. For the past week or so, Travis and I have been hiding it in berry smoothies (which totally works and is a great way to start the day!)
But I’d love to find some other creative ways to prepare it…
My friend mixes it into her salads. I’ve tried kale chips, which apparently you can make at home. And obviously we could steam it (though that seems a little… meh.) Got any advice for me?
Have you tried kale? Got any favorite preparation methods or recipes? What other “super foods” do you love/recommend? Please share your advice in the comments!
