I love Kale! I don't know if it is because of the health fad with kale right now but I feel really good about myself when I eat it. I love it sauteed and mixed with rice and I love it cooked down in soups.

It was so good like this but I decided to switch up the leftover by adding curry paste and coconut milk plus a little ginger and lemongrass.
If I am going to say I love kale I have to say I am madly and deeply in love with Chocolate. Can't live without it - it keeps my soul singing! I try to find ways to eat chocolate and still be healthy.

I didn't think these would work with no eggs, butter, sugar, or flour but surprisingly they baked up like a regular cookie. They are so good its hard to only eat one or two so be careful.
I have been really inspired the last few days to strive to make healthy choices about what I am eating and slowly its going to be a habit again. Its fun to challenge yourself to come up with really tasty food that you don't have to feel guilty about eating.
