* Kale is a wonderful, wholesome nutritious super food. When you eat this stuff you can definitely feel good about yourself! To prepare it, wash carefully, unfurling all the ends to wash out grit and stuff, especially if you pick it out of your own garden (watch out for little bugs and slugs too). Cut out the main stalk and discard (into your compost or Green Box). Chop the leaves.
