TrayS Posted December 4, 2012 Share Posted December 4, 2012 So, until this week I've never really eaten much kale. Yes, I know it's one of the best vegetables out there, packed with nutrients, but to this point I had sort of been avoiding it. Now I know what I've been missing. You see, I enjoy vegetables quite a lot. Spinach, brussel sprouts, peppers, artichokes, eggplant, asparagus.... the list goes on. But several years ago I discovered that when I eat broccoli I get horrible nausea and cramping stomach pains that last for several hours, which is very sad because I had always liked broccoli. So I guess I've stayed away from kale in part because it is green and I had no experience with it, and perhaps subconsciously I've been afriad it would tear up my stomach like broccoli does. Also, the pizza shop I worked at back in high school used kale as a decoration for the salad bar (not actually served as part of the salad bar) so I'd always associated it with the non-food part of the salad. But now that I'm eating Whole30 I've been expanding my comfort zone to try more things. The other day my husband asked me to get some kale, then didn't use it and went away for the weekend. I thought about it sitting in the fridge - nice big green organic kale leaves - and decided I was going to do something with it. So I took a big piece off and made kale chips. Omg, yum! This morning I cooked some with olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper and ate it next to my eggs. Delicious!!! So basically I've come online to share how much I now love kale!
