Some people are crazy for Vail. Some people are even crazy for Quayle. But me? I’m crazy for kale. And so is my friend Hallie Klecker, who released a new e-book today titled Crazy for Kale: Glow from the Inside Out with 40 Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Recipes.
Hallie is a well-known food blogger; you can purchase her book while it’s still hot off of the e-press. It is available for $5.99, and it contains 40 recipes (33 are Paleo/grain-free, 31 are vegan).
According to the website WHFoods.com, kale provides comprehensive support for the body’s detoxification system. Further, kale provides cholesterol-lowering benefits, and also reduces the risk of certain cancers.
Researchers can now identify over 45 different flavonoids in kale, including quercetin. Kale’s flavonoids combine both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits and help to prevent oxidative stress as well as chronic inflammation.
As you can see, both Hallie and I are head over heels crazy for kale. Here are some of my own kale-icious recipes.
My younger son and I make a raw kale salad at least once a week. He is adamant about massaging the kale for at least a few minutes in order to make it more tender, and takes great pride in seasoning it as well.
Are you crazy for kale? If not, give it a try. You might go over the deep end for it, just like Hallie and me.
