And then it hit me... something was different. Was it the ability to navigate the fruit stands without a grocery cart traffic jam? Was it the perfectly stacked apples... or the new location of the heirloom tomato stand? Then I saw the sign... “KALE KORNER”. Was it for real or just a mirage from working out on the hot sunny beach?!?
Clearly, I'm thrilled that my local grocery store has made such positive changes – it reminds me of a challenge I like to give my clients when we discuss the benefits of a whole foods diet: simply select a green leafy vegetable (such as KALE) that you have never tried before and make a new recipe during the week. You can go all out and make a raw massaged kale salad or kale chips... or just try incorporating some sauteed or steamed kale into one of your favorite recipes, omelets, or soups... or add a few leaves to your morning smoothie (great for kids and husbands).
How are you going to add Kale to you diet?
